Sim Card

What is a SIM Card?

A SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is a small removable card that stores data needed to identify a subscriber on a mobile network. You can remove your SIM from your current phone and insert it into another compatible device, provided it's either with the same telecommunications provider or you've 'unlocked' it from its original network.

Pretty much every provider now offers customers a 'SIM only' option for postpaid and often prepaid plans - also called a 'BYO phone' plan. This means that instead of signing up to a contract and getting a new phone as part of the deal, you just get a SIM card connected to your provider's network, which you can then insert into the phone of your choice to use with your new plan.

Reasons a SIM only plan might be right for you:

    • You can afford to buy a phone outright.
    • You already have an unlocked phone that you want to keep (or are willing to get it unlocked).
    • Your contract is up, but you're waiting for a new phone to be released so you can upgrade and are looking for a plan to bridge the gap.
    • You're looking to pay less on your monthly phone bill .
    • You don't want to be locked into a contract.

The benefits of SIM only

A BYO plan is actually a great option if you have a phone you want to keep using, or have the means to purchase a phone outright through a retailer and want to find a plan with the best value for money. SIM only plans come with all the bells and whistles you'd associate with regular mobile plans - they just cost you less because you're not adding on the price of a new handset (not to mention insurance). Telecommunications companies really don't make money by selling phones to customers; the profit is in selling the use of their network through the plans themselves. The inclusion of a sexy new smartphone to be paid off over a 12 or 24 month term just acts as a lure to entice customers to sign up to a provider's network. Often, customers will find that through bypassing an unnecessary phone upgrade and just finding a new plan for the phone from their expired contract, they can secure a better deal with better value.

However, enter into a plan and purchase a phone and you'll find costs go up, as telcos need to insure against recovering a phone should their customer decide to renege on the contract - it's easy to disconnect service for someone who hasn't paid a bill, but recovering that new smartphone may not be quite as simple.

What's included in SIM only plans?

BYO plans will usually feature similar inclusions and exclusions as other plans. Included value will typically be:

  • Standard national voice calls
  • Standard national SMS and MMS
  • Calls to 13, 1300 and 1800 numbers

Things that you need to watch out for:

  • All of the inclusions and listed fees and charges are for using your phone within Australia only. This means that the monthly allowances for both data and calls won't include use while you're overseas, and international roaming is costly.
  • Most plans don't include international talk, text and MMS, although higher plans may include specified amounts for international use.
  • Voicemail can be unlimited on some plans, but on others retrieving messages will cost you.
  • Even on plans with unlimited SMS, texts made to and received from Premium SMS services won't be included. These are usually charged much higher than standard text and are often subscription services, which can eat up your allowance quickly (especially on prepaid plans).
  • Directory assistance and 1900 numbers usually aren't part of the included value either, and will be added on to your monthly fee.
