It’s that time of year. Phone season. The new iPhone is here, the Fold 3 is still factory fresh, and the Pixel 6 is right around the corner. If you’ve picked up your new iPhone – or any of these other new fangled phones – outright, you should also consider getting a new phone plan to go with it. Here are five we think you should consider.
Circles.Life recently refreshed its entire range of plans, and it’s got a great entry-level deal for those that don’t need too much data. $10 per month gets you 5GB, which could be a perfect plan if you’re working from home and always on Wi-Fi or for kids or older relatives. Most plans around this price bracket only get you a gig or two, so getting 5GB for the same kind of money is a steal.
Circles is powered by the Optus 4G network.
On the other end of the data spectrum, Optus has a massive 500GB plan. You’ll pay $65 per month for your first year, and $115 per month thereafter. The plan is however contract-free, so you can always leave after your discount period expires. This offer runs until November 2.
Moose Mobile is a Canadian-themed Brisbane-based provider powered by the Optus network that should definitely be on your radar. $24.80 per month gets you a 50GB allowance for your first year with Moose. This plan will however revert to a 35GB plan for $29.90 per month thereafter, but is contract-free.
Kogan has one of the best bang-for-buck SIM-only plans going around right now. You’ll pay just $25 per month for 45GB, and you’ll get your first month for $4.90. There is a catch however: while every other plan in this list is contract-free, Kogan will lock you into a year-long contract.

If you love a deep discount, iiNet is offering new customers 50% off all its mobile plans. The standout is its $29.99 per month plan, which gets you 40GB. That’s a solid offer in general, but you’ll pay just $15 per month for your first six months. That’s hard to beat. Better yet, if you’re an iINet internet customer, you’ll get a bonus 80GB of data on this plan, taking you to 120GB all up.
