Data Plans

Data Plans – 2GB over 30 days for $79 – (available as add on in cart)

Free wifi is not always convenient and never 24/7 nor a secure way of accessing your accounts. Yet travelers typically need internet access for Google Maps, Skyping back home, researching restaurants and hotels and logging into their online bank. With the Unlimited Plan add-on, you can have the convenience of accessing the internet anywhere for a price you can afford.

The Unlimited Plan, besides offering 2GB of data at 3G speeds also features unlimited calling within Australia as well as internationally to the US or Canada, and unlimited local texts. International texts are not included and would bill out of standard call credit.

Recharges

The easiest way to purchase more talk time credit is calling Cellular Abroad at +1-310-862-7100 (8am to 4pm PST, Monday through Saturday, English speaking reps), but you can also order online 24/7 through our website, before or during your trip.

Australia Prepaid Recharge Card
only US$19.00



Each of these recharges gives about 200 minutes of calls to the US or Canada or about 50 minutes in Australia (estimated time - excludes AUD $0.29 connection fees). Incoming calls are free while at your destination.

3GB Bundle Add-on
only $69.00

Get 3GB of high-speed data connectivity for 30 days from activation upon arrival in Australia. This will give you access to any internet features your phone model offers. (Additional 3GB bundles within 30 days are not available).

Australia Phone Package FAQs

What phone should I choose?

If you are planning on only making and receive phone calls and/or are on a budget and do not need data, choose one of our entry level phones. If you need data for checking your emails, browsing the web, etc. you will need a phone with 3G capabilities.

Should I add the Unlimited Plan?

Most people chose the unlimited plan. This way, you don’t have to concern yourself with the costs of making calls. You can talk as much as you want locally or back to the US or Canada. This is a great value even for travelers who do not need data but is even a better value for those that do since it includes 2GB of data which is more than plenty for most travelers.

Should I add the US number add-on?

If you want to make it affordable for those back home to reach you or you want to retain your usual number (by call forwarding) then you should add the US number.

Why don’t I just purchase a phone when I get to Australia?

The Lebara SIM card is not readily available in Australia nor are some of the models that we offer.

How good is the coverage?

Coverage is very good where there are towns and cities. Of course, Australia has vast stretches of land where nothing short of a satellite phone will work.

Where can I get more talk time?

You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad or through most convenience stores in Australia.

Will it work as soon as I land in Australia?

Yes.

How much will it cost people in the USA/Canada to call me on my Australian number?

You can get additional call credit either through Cellular Abroad.

Where can I get more talk time?

That depends on their plan. A great option is to add the “US Number” feature to your service. Each $19 will give you 146 minutes of incoming calls on a US number.

Can I keep my usual number?

Yes you can. Purchase the US Number add on and forward your current number to the new one (ask your carrier what the procedure is). This is ideal for business travelers who need to be reached at all times but is also a double edged sword for travelers going for a bit of rest and relaxation as anyone who calls your usual number will reach you. Another option is just to give a select few your new US number.

Can I use the SIM card next year when I go to Australia?

You need to add call credit at least once every 90 days in order to retain the phone number so, while yes you could retain the number, you may be better of just purchasing a new SIM card next time you travel. More questions? Call us at 800.287.5072 and we will be glad to be of assistance.
