Frequently Asked Questions About Everyday Mobile

Can I keep my existing phone number if I move over to Everyday Mobile ?

Yes you can. This comes up a lot so we’vewritten an article about it.

 

The process is simple (it’s called porting  and usually only takes a few hours.) There’s nothing for you to do. Just go ahead and buy the SIM. When you’re filling out the form online, they’ll ask you if you want to bring your number with you. If you say yes, they’ll transfer it for you.

 

What is the ‘1000GB Data Bank’?

A data bank is, in our view, the fairest way to treat data in a phone plan. With a data bank, whatever data you get in your phone plan stays with you for good. It doesn’t expire at the end of the month, as most of us are used to.

If you have a plan from Woolworths and you get 55GB to use that month, but you use only 15GB of it during the period, the remaining 35 GB is ‘banked’ and rolled over to the next month as long as you recharge before expiry. It’s added to your starting data balance at the beginning of the new month, up to 1000GB of data.

Banking data is a new feature that not many phone companies offer. It’s a great feature and a good reason to get a plan from Everyday Mobile..

What is a CIS and why should I read it?

The CIS is something that all phone companies, including Everyday Mobile, have to deal with. It’s effectively a simple version of your contract with your phone company.It is WELL WORTH reading the CIS for your plan. It will take you about as long as it takes you to read a menu in a restaurant and it will tell you everything about your plan – for example, it answers the ‘how is data charged’ question above.

Does Everyday Mobile offer 5G plans?

Yes, Everyday Mobile uses part of Telstra’s 5G, 4G, and 3G mobile networks. 5G coverage is only available on SIM Only plans. Prepaid plans and long expiry plans use only 4G and 3G network.

Which competitors should I consider when I am looking at Everyday Mobile offers?

If you’re after coverage, Tangerine is the one of the phone companies which resell the Telstra network.

You can see all of our partners and all of their SIM plans on all 3 networks on our SIM Only page.

What’s the difference between prepaid and postpaid phone plans? (Everyday Mobile offers both.)

The distinction is actually pretty subtle in many ways. You can find out in our article which one suits you best.

The difference between these plans boils down to when you have to pay for them. With prepaid plans, you pay before you use – like a cinema ticket. With a postpaid plan, you’ll get a bill at the end of the month and you become liable to pay it at that time. Prepaid plans are generally a bit easier to get because, unlike postpaid plans, customers don’t have to pass a credit check to get one.

Everyday Mobile sells both prepaid and postpaid SIMs. We have covered the postpaid plans in its range below.

What's good

  • Now with better data management features

What's bad

Everyday Mobile offers SIM Only plans with access to a 5G network.

Everyday Mobile is one of several MVNOs currently offering 5G using the Telstra network.

Here’s a list of Everyday Mobile SIM Only plans and monthly data allocation. Any unused data is stored in your data bank (1000GB total) as long as you recharge before the expiry each month.

  • Everyday Mobile $40 55GB
  • Everyday Mobile $50 95GB
  • Everyday Mobile $60 120GB

Is Everyday Mobile Postpaid SIM Only Plan Range right for you?

  • Do you need strong rural Australian coverage?
    Everyday Mobile uses parts of the Telstra 3G+4G+5G network which offers strong coverage in and outside of city areas. Everyday Mobile claims more than 23 millions Australians fall under their coverage footprint, which gives them a square km footprint slightly less than Optus. One alternative to consider if you want access to the full Telstra network, but don’t want to pay Telstra prices, is Tangerine.
  • Do you shop at Woolworths?:
    A major component of the Everyday Mobile proposition is the convenience they offer when it comes to purchasing a recharge. If you already go into a Woolworths store once or twice a week, picking up a voucher recharge might be so simple that it’s worth paying slightly more with Everyday Mobile, even for the $40 recharge. Woolworths also offer Everyday Mobile customers 10% off their Woolworths shopping once a month, up to $50.
  • Do you wish you could keep your data?
    Our own WhatPhone survey results show just how important it is to Australians to feel that their phone company is treating them fairly. Everyday Mobile offers a Data Bank facility which we think is the fairest way a phone company can offer data to their customers. This now has become a common practice among Telcos. But, Woolworths now Everyday Mobile (were one of the first MVNOs to offer this).

What is Everyday Mobile / Telstra’s coverage like?

Everyday Mobile is using the standard MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) phraseology as its network description. Everyday Mobile uses ‘part of Telstra’s 5G, 4G and 3G mobile network’ for their mobile customers. This Telstra network covers 99% of the Australian population. That’s 2.5m square km. The 4G network you get access to is designed to mimic the 4G coverage Optus and Vodafone have in place. To give you some idea of the comparison, Everyday Mobile/Telstra 4G access covers 94% of the Australian population. Compare that to Optus’ 4G coverage at 98.5% of the Australian population. Following their substantial network improvements, Vodafone’s national 4G network now covers 96% of the population.

You can check the Everyday Mobile coverage out on its site.

What we like about Everyday Mobile SIM Only Plans

Before we get into it, here are some of the basic questions and answers visitors have concerning Everyday Mobile phone service. These are standard service elements and not unique to Everyday Mobile.

  • Regular promotions:
    Everyday Mobile (Woolworths) undertakes regular promotions. Watch out for them. Without them, Everyday Mobile plans, frankly, struggle to stand out in such a cluttered Australian telco market. With a good bonus data offer sometimes, Everyday Mobile plans can be a good buy.
  • Zero bill shock feature:
    We’ve already commented on the ‘fairness’ of Everyday Mobile Data Bank facility. Everyday Mobile also offers a ‘zero bill shock’ feature – the ability to set a ‘hard stop’ at your data limit. Postpaid plans like this are convenient, but users also need to be aware that many charges can be applied to their account for non-core service fees. Examples include International Calls and extra data. Everyday Mobile offers you the chance to have your data service stop when it gets to your plan inclusion limit. (So, for example, if your plan has 5GB of data built in, your mobile data stops when you get to that 5GB limit. This means you can avoid the $10/GB fees that 28% of Australians pay.)
  • Standard SIM Only inclusions:
    Everyday Mobile prepaid mobile recharge includes unlimited voice and SMS.
  • Cover all types of SIM card:
    Whether you need a Nano or a standard SIM for your phone, just pick one up for $2 in stores or online through their portal for prepaid, or purchase a SIM plan pack with the SIM card included.

Downsides to Everyday Mobile SIM Only Plans

Lack of included International Minutes:

International minutes are now a core offering from most phone companies in their entire range of SIM Only plans. However, Everyday Mobile doesn’t offer as many international minutes as some other telcos. Although Everyday Mobile customers who purchase the month-to-month plan or the SIM only plan can make unlimited calls to 30 destinations, to make calls from countries not on the limited list requires an add-on. This add-on credit starts at $5 or $7. If you opt for a long-expiry plan, you’ll need to purchase a $5 per month add-on to make any international calls at all.

SUMMING UP - EVERYDAY MOBILE IS A FUNNY ONE

Everyday  Mobile is a reliable telco that generally provides for the wants and needs of some Australians. Everyday Mobile  marries the convenience of shopping in-store every week with a cutthroat value of network reseller pricing, with coverage that reaches 23 million Australians. They’ve added some real value in their plans with the ‘data bank’ feature. It’s the fairest way to treat data – you keep what you purchased.

Everyday Mobile  plans will suit those who know themselves well enough to know that taking a SIM and moving phone companies is something they will rarely do. Some people prefer to operate on month-to-month SIM Only agreements without contractual ties to a handset, although Everyday Mobile  both. One alternative to such postpaid month-to-month plans would be Everyday Mobile’ prepaid plans.
