It’s been awhile since I did a cost comparison post, so today I decided to compare mobile phone plans between the UK and Australia. For this particular comparison, I decided to pick the most popular mobile phone, the iPhone 4S 16 GB, and only look at plans that gave you this phone for free. I visited a popular UK mobile phone plan comparison site and chose the top three in the bestseller list. Obviously these bestsellers will change regularly, but, for the record, the website I got my information from is called Uswitch. I then went to a popular Australian mobile phone comparison site, and chose similar plans from popular mobile phone providers here that offered the same or similar in terms of minutes, SMS and data transfer. The above plans and prices were correct as at May 2012 but will obviously be subject to change, and probably very quickly.
Some Australian networks also offered unlimited access to places like Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. And where the UK mobiles tell you exactly how many minutes you get each month, here in Australia you tend to be given an amount of money as a credit, say $400 a month. It’s also worth mentioning at this stage, that coverage is a big issue here in Australia.
If I drive about 5 km down the road, away from the city, the signal disappears in some areas.
In the interest of scientific accuracy, I’m just going to add up the cost of all three plans, from three different mobile phone companies from the two countries.
So, whilst on the face of it UK mobiles seem cheaper, you’d probably work fewer Australian work hours to pay for your mobile phone here.
At this point in my cost comparisons between the UK and Australia, I normally mention that had I included the USA, they would have won hands down. I had a quick look, and interestingly they have the same cost comparison site in the USA as we have here in Australia.

If you still can't find the answers you are looking for, leave a comment on a relevant page; either I or someone else will try to answer you. High rates for international calls makes you restricted when it comes to keeping in touch with your friends and family abroad.
When my phone contract ran out a few months ago, I kept the phone and switched to a $20 per month pay-as-you-go plan, that gives me $180 worth of calls per month + 225 minutes of free calls to 3 Mobile, more than enough for me.
I was in OZ for nearly 4 months and I found the phone to be cheaper, particularly the data plans. It must be really irritating when it is, say, your boss, wife, girlfriend, mother-in-law, next-door neighbour (which ever applies) droning on and on about who cares what.
A plan that gets you 400 mins in Australia (Virgin $39 plan with iPhone 4s 16GB) will be $1296 over 24 months.
The closest equivalent in the US is $1675 for the 400 minutes AND the 400 minutes is eaten into by calls you make AND receive. I am very surprised that USA mobiles are more expensive, but it’s nice to hear that we do get some things cheaper over this side of the world for a change.
The mobile operators in the UK all offer what they call unlimited Internet* with their price plans. I phoned up T-Mobile the other day to find out my own data usage stats (my account page on their website refused to tell me), and was told that my allowance was 1GB. Virgin came in a close second (or indeed joint-top if you don’t have an Android phone). Vodafone are the only operator who currently show data allowance as a selectable package option (just like call time and number-of-texts).
Thanks for all that but for anyone not going heavy on streaming I can tell you you can get 1GB for ?5 per month on TalkMobile SIMpletalker.
Some of the Australian plans, if not all, offer free telephone calls to the same network in some form or other. Back in the UK, Orange offered 2 for 1 cinema tickets and free calls to one of your Orange friends.


Calls are being charged out at the standard rate used by the company, which includes a connection charge for the call and then a rate per minute.
That’s about $1035 less than they cost in Australia, so UK mobiles are something like 22% cheaper than similar deals in Australia. Go to the Google search box, it's near the top on the right hand side, and search the site for whatever you are looking for.
As far as Malaysia is concerned, Cheap International Calls Malaysia provides you excellent quality low cost calls from UK.
I planned to reuse my current phone and just change the sim card in it, and was looking at prepaid plans.
I admit I didn’t look at every providers, but Vodafone caught my eye with a $1 sim card deal And their 365 days prepaid plans. The iPhone 4S is a glaring example as we have more competitive providers like Virgin Mobile able to sell this handset.
But mostly it’s the data allowance I think is most important when choosing a price plan. The cost-per-byte varies drastically across both operators and across the same carrier’s different tariffs, but expect to see this model become available for other 3G and 4G devices soon.
It's mostly about music-streaming service Spotify, with a dose of synthpop music, Google Android, and the odd post or two about gadgets and science fiction.
I actually sometimes struggle to get a signal where I live, and I’m about 22 km from the city of Brisbane.
By the way, Vodafone and 3 Mobile recently joined forces somehow or another, so they are now the same.
It’s no good for a mobile network to offer me a zillion minutes call time if they then cut me off from the Internet after I watch a couple of videos.
So here’s a clear-and-simple summary of the data allowance each UK mobile operator currently offers.
