Common questions about Yomojo

What is Yomojo ?

Yomojo is an Australian MVNOPrepaid SIM Provider (that’s a small phone company which resells another phone company’s network and provides prepaid plans). They’ve been around for a few years now, offering a broad range of competitive plans, which, following an early 2018 update now includes a ‘Kids Plan’ option.

Yomojo resells access to the Optus 4G network.

Yomojo used to be Yatango but they rebranded after a financial restructure a couple of years ago.

 

If I want to move to Yomojo and keep my phone number, can I do that ?

Yes you can. We have more information about this here. Keeping your phone number is a simple process. When you checkout on the Yomojo site, they’ll ask you if you want to keep the phone number you have or move to a new one.

What alternatives are there to Yomojo ?

There are a number of alternatives available for you on the Optus 4G network. Options include

If you dislike the coverage characteristics of Optus’s network service (i.e. the network that each of these rivals to Yomojo use) you can also try other smaller phone companies which use other networks.

 

What's good

  • Access to the full Optus 4G network
  • FREE Yomojo to Yomojo calls included
  • Recent revised their plans - they're now all prepaid
  • 'Kid's plan' low cost entry point plan now available

What's bad

  • An incredibly competitive Optus network market
  • Lesser known brand

Yomojo Review - Should you go with them?

We think that Yomojo’s plan range is a good one on the Optus network and we love the addition of a sub $10 price point to add a ‘Kids plan’ to their range.

 

What you need to know about Yomojo

 

Intro – 60 second guide to Yomojo

Yomojo, are a friendly, reputable smaller Australian phone company. Let’s take a look at how Yomojo compares to the competition.

  • Yomojo operates on the Optus 4G Plus network.
  • We find Yomojo’s plans and data packs to perform consistently well when compared to the competition.
  • Yomojo have been around for a while now and their service has matured.
  • They have a cutting edge Self Service app for both Android and iOS smartphones.
  • Unfortunately, they don’t have a ‘Next Day Delivery’ option. You’ll have to wait 1-4 business days to get the SIM.

 

What are Yomojo offering users?

Yomojo are offering users SIM only plans with

  • Kid’s plans :
    A phone plan with a sub $10 per month price point. It comes with a small data allocation (1GB) but then, for pocket money, what did you expect?
  • Unlimited Plans :
    Yomojo’s plans are now all prepaid in nature. Every one (except the recently added kids plan) offers unlimited voice calls and SMS to Australian numbers when the call is made in Australia. The rest of what you pay Yomojo for will be the data in your plan. Yomojo’s lower end price points (everything under $50 per month) are all 4G enabled plans. That means your data will load very fast on your phone – potentially faster than over your home fixed broadband connection. Interestingly, however, Yomojo have recently added 2 price plans with huge 3G data allowances. Pay more than $50 and you’ll get Unlimited voice and SMS as well as either 30Gb or 90GB of 3G data.
  • Data-Only options.
    Yomojo are one of a growing range of phone companies which provide data plans for tablets, mobiles and mobile broadband dongles. This is one of the fastest growing categories in telco (see our survey on 2018 trends on the homepage ) products because the price of data is falling so quickly, mobile broadband is getting to the point it can be a realistic alternative to fixed connections for some.

The Yomojo basic unlimited texts and calling plan starts at one of the lowest price points per month that we’ve seen, with additional fees added on top depending on your mobile data usage requirements. Yomojo have been around for a while now and they’ve matured in to a competent if still not a widely known brand. Yomojo added a Self Service app to their Self Service facilities back in 2016. This sort of facility is now a hygiene factor – the absence of a Self Service app reflected badly on Yomojo. But they’ve put their time to good use and produced what their customers needed. The app is now in place and we think it’s great.

Yomojo tightened their range in early 2018, removing postpaid options and PAYG plans from their range. Their plans are now more mainstream so easier to compare alongside the competition.

Evaluating Yomojo: The key things you need to know

  • Family Bundle Discount! Their ‘Family’ features are their best features:
    Our 2018 survey of Australian phone users showed an enormous amount of interest in the uptake of new ‘connected devices‘. Smartwatches, Fitbits and Internet Of Things solutions for the home are all being added to the already long list of technology products that Australians have in their home. Yomojo are one of the few companies who have a handle on what this sort of change will mean to people. And they’ve improved their service to accommodate this imminent increase in the number of SIMs we will all have to manage. Yomojo lets you pay less per service, when you take more than one SIM from them. For example, if you and your spouse both had a SIM from Yomojo, not only would you be able to make free calls to each other, but their self service app would help you manage your data across both connections.
  • They’re a low cost Prepaid SIM provider :
    Yomojo are a low cost Australian SIM only provider. Like most prepaid plans, there is no commitment required from you, to take a plan from them. You can leave whatever month you’re in. That gives you total freedom to come and go as you see fit.
  • Their plans are super flexible :
    Yomojo let you can change up or down your plan at any time. If you’re using more voice or data over time, just bump up the plan inclusions for a few dollars more. This is particularly useful when it comes to your data requirements. As we have covered elsewhere, people’s use of data is increasing rapidly. On average, people double their data requirement every 12 months.
  • They use the Optus 4G Plus network :
    They use the lightning fast Optus 4G network. They don’t use part of the Optus 4G network. They don’t use some of it. They use the whole, entire Optus 4G network. Yomojo are an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) also known as a network reseller. These smaller phone companies offten offer better deals than the major phone companies.
  • Their prepaid plans have a 30 day, not a 28 day recharge window :
    It might seem like a small change but many phone companies have changed their prepaid recharge to be 28 days, rather than 30. That means that each year, you’ll be paying for an extra recharge if you choose a provider with a 28 day recharge window. Yomojo’s recharge window is 30 days and there are (we hear) no plans to change that.
  • FREE Yomojo to Yomojo calls:
    If one or more of your friends is also on Yomojo, you’ll get unlimited free calls at any time to them. (In Australia.)
  • Now with Self Service App:
    Self service apps are the number 1 tool to take more control over the costs associated with your account. Their use not only cuts the cost of your service (because it makes it cheaper for the phone company to service you) but makes it more convenient to get things just the way you want them on your account. Yomojo produced their self service app, for both IoS and Android phones, in 2016 and we think it works just fine.
  • They have 3G enabled plans: Yomojo’s two most expensive plans have huge data allowances included. The data you’ll get on them is 3G however. So what’s the difference? The difference is the speed of the data downloads and uploads you’ll get with these plans. Typically, 3G plans might be one third or one quarter the speed of 4G plans. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. You can still watch a YouTube video on a 3G connection, no problem. In Australia now, around about 75% of people have 4G enabled phones. However, for those who have a 3G phone (the fastest data for which will be 3G), there’s no point in having a 4G SIM in it.

 

Things to be careful of with Yomojo

  • Out of bundle data charging:
    You’ve got to be careful on Yomojo plans. We advise that you use their self service app to track your data usage. If you exceed your data allocation and still have service credit on your account, you will be charged more than $50 per GB for the data you buy. On the Yomojo site you will see a link to ‘reserve credit rates’ and this plan feature is outlined in there (as well as on the CIS – Customer Information Statement.) This $50 / GB is an outdated and now uncommon way of charging customers for extra data they need. Usually, when you exceed your plan’s data allocation, you’ll be charged $10 per GB. to be fair, Yomojo do offer the option of adding a GB of data to your plan yourself – for which you will pay only $11 for the first GB and $10 for the second. The problem is – you have to know you need it before you buy it – which is why we’re recommending you use your Self Service app to track it. The $10 / GB scheme usually works without you having to remember.

 

How do Yomojo compare against other SIM only providers?

We have shown Yomojo’s plans, above, on this page. We have also highlighted the best of competitor’s plans. If you’d like to compare the full range we offer, you can see the full range of plans on our Prepaid or SIM Only plan pages. Here are some plans from the best of the rest on other networks.

 

What’s good about Yomojo ?

  • You can keep your current phone number if you move to Yomojo:
    Move to Yomojo and you’ll have the option to keep your current number and change or adjust your plan at any time without fees or penalties.
  • Invite your friends & you’ll both be rewarded!
    For every friend or family member you invite that joins Yomojo, you’ll both earn $20 reward credit to use on your service! Yomojo doesn’t limit the amount of reward credit you can earn, so you’re free to invite as many people as you want. Yomojo also allow free ‘on net’ calls – an industry term for free calls between phones which both have Yomojo SIMs in them.
  • No hassle ‘recharge’:
    If you choose your prepaid plan from Yomojo, you can set your service up to auto renew if you’d like it to. Removing that on-going recharge is as easy as removing your SIM if you don’t want to continue.

 

Comparing Yomojo VS Amaysim

Here are the key findings for both Amaysim and Yomojo services & coverage, there are more details in the review which follows below. Picking between them is not easy. They use the same network, they have very similar inclusions in their plans at the same price points.  Ultimately, whether you choose Amaysim or Yomojo will come down to your specific voice, SMS and data needs.

  • Amaysim are a tried and true Aussie MVNO with a long history of great customer satisfaction and providing excellent connectivity on the Optus 4G network. Amaysim are one of Australias biggest small phone companies with over 1 million Australian customers.
  • Yomojo on the other hand are a newer phone company, offering some of the best prepaid phone plans currently found on the market. Yomojo’s plans are fantastic news for Aussie consumers who want total control over their plan inclusions.
  • Both Yomojo and Amaysim use the same Optus 3G and 4G network. With either of them, you’ll get exactly the same network coverage, quality and speeds as you would if you went directly to Optus.

In the following review we will go into more details, as we outline the differences between Amaysim and Yomojo.

Comparing Yomojo and Amaysim

 

Yomojo are a new Australian MVNO

Back in 2015 when Yatango went into administration due to financial issues, Yomojo stepped in and migrated users to their company. Since then, the market has become even more competitive than it was.

  • Yomojo have a larger plan range:
    Yomojo have cut down the number of plans they offered, reduced the entry price for what they do sell (their lowest price plan is now sub $10.)
  • They offer family plan options:
    Yomojo are the only phone company outside the tier 1 major telcos (Optus, Vodafone and Telstra) who offer family plans. Yomojo’s unique interface means that family members can see how much data each other have on their plans. Yomojo also offer a sliding scale of reduced fees, the more people sign up to these plans. For example, if you have 2 members on their family plan, you’ll save $3.50. If you have 6, you’ll save $5 per month on each plan. With an ever increasing number of wearable devices and the Internet Of Things taking off, Yomojo’s investment in Self Service facilities to help manage multiple SIMs is well considered. If you have a house full of connected iPads and wearables, consider Yomojo.
  • They now have voice plans with 3G options:
    Yomojo now offer high end voice based plans with data allowances which are 3G.  Moose Mobile do the same thing but it’s rare to find this sort of plan in Australia. If you can deal with slighty slower data speeds, this option is well worth considering.

But be careful of…

  • Watch Yomojo’s out of bundle data charging:
    Yomojo have an unusual combination of data pricing schemes that many will find hard to understand. Firstly, the most common excess data usage scenario is that you recharge your Yomojo service with an amount slightly more than you need, say $30, and then apply that to your $29.90 plan. In this situation, when you reach your data limit, your mobile data service will simply stop. However, if you were to have $50 and recharge your $29.90 service, there would be $20.10 left on your account. Under that circumstance, excess data would be charged at $50 per GB – well over the current market rate. Yomojo will let you buy extra data each month, manually, through their self service facility. Costs there for an extra GB of data is $11 per GB for the first GB and $10 for each GB thereafter. That’s far more reasonable. Just make sure that, if you want the extra data, you buy it upfront to avoid that $50 / GB charge.

Amaysim is the winner for most

Amaysim have been around for many years now, operating successfully in Australia on the Optus 3G and 4G network. Amaysim will probably be the winner when it comes to comparing Yomojo and Amaysim for most people. While both companies offer great value, in this comparison Amaysim come out in front.

  • Amaysim are a known brand:
    Thanks to their long operating history and many awards. Simply put, Amaysim is a brand people know and are familiar with.
  • Their plans can be bought prepaid and postpaid:
    Users who take an Amaysim SIM can decide whether they want to have a prepaid or a postpaid service.
  • Better for International Calls:
    Amaysim’s plans have better international call inclusions than you will find on Yomojo’s plans.

3G / 4G

Amaysim and Yomojo both operate on the exact same Optus 4G network, providing the exact same connectivity. Both companies are MVNOs, which means they buy data wholesale from Optus and than pass the savings onto subscribers.

When you are trying to decide which of the two different companies is best for you, you need to look at your personal usage habits. The only real difference between the two companies is that Amaysim has a more solid track record, as Yomojo is still a young company.

Comparing Coverage

Both Yomojo and Amaysim provide the same coverage as both MVNOs operate on the same network.  No matter if you choose Amaysim or if you choose Yomojo, you will be covered. Yomojo use the Optus 4G network and so to do Amaysim.

You can find out more about the national network coverage of the Optus 4G network on our network coverage page. The Optus 4G plus network provides coverage and connectivity to 98.5 percent of the Australian population. For users which live in a remote rural area of Australia, Whatphone recommends that you check out Boost Mobile, a Telstra 4G network MVNO.

Prepaid or Postpaid

It used to be the case that both Amaysim and Yomojo’s plans could be bought either as prepaid or postpaid variants. Not sure of the difference? Read our article about it.

In general though when it comes to postpaid Vs prepaid,  we find prepaid plans to be more predictable.

Yomojo Vs Amaysim Mobile data plans

Mobile Broadband services with huge data allowances are now commonplace. Some say, they may even replace the NBN at some stage, such is their convenience, flexibility, perceived fairness and ever dropping price.

Yomojo offers very similar mobile data limits on their Unlimited plans as Amaysim currently does. The only slight difference between mobile data allowances, are on the following two Unlimited price points:

However, it’s important to keep in mind that Amaysim has been around a lot longer than Yomojo. Yomojo for their part, do offer subscribers with a great level of customisation. If you don’t need much mobile data, you can pay per MB.

Who offers the better customer service?

When it comes to which provider offers the best customer service, the clear winner is Amaysim. 96% of those who choose the Amaysim unlimited plan range say they would recommend the service to a friend. That’s not to say that Yomojo has poor customer service, it’s just that as a younger company, they don’t have the same high level of satisfaction information available.

Amaysim has a long history in Australia or providing excellent customer service, as demonstrated by numerous awards. They’ve even won the “CHOICE Mobile Service Provider Satisfaction Survey 2015” award. With around 84 percent of respondents saying Amaysim has the Best Value for Money mobile plans on the market, it’s not a bad effort at all.

In Summary

So when it comes down to picking which MVNO, Amaysim or Yomojo, is best for you, it’s almost a dead heat. Both companies provide very similar deals, with very similar pricing and use exactly the same network. Yomojo are a very young company. They just don’t have the scale of Amaysim, just yet. Amaysim are a strong competitor in the Australian MVNO market, with a solid multi year operating history backing them up.

Yomojo and Amaysim are great for people who live in the cities or suburbs. We say that because they’re on the Optus 4G network. If you are living in a rural or remote area of Australia, then you might want to check out these alternatives.

Summing up – Yomojo are one of the best on the Optus 4G network

Yomojo is good news for those who like a plan with a lot of data in it. Which basically means everyone. Best for data is one of the most meaningful awards we offer because of the importance of the inclusion and we didn’t award it lightly.

In many ways, Yomojo are ‘just another phone company’. They have perfectly good customer support, albeit through an overseas call center. They have perfectly good coverage – Optus’ network covers 98.5% of the Australian population. They have perfectly good plans, especially for data and those with unusual needs. Their new, free customer self service app puts them on a par with any tier 1 telcos. They also bring some worthwhile variety to the market with their phone plans with 3G data options.

They’re let down a bit by the out of bundle charging they have in their plans. Make sure you manage your data allowance so you don’t get caught paying $50 / GB.

 

Some Background : Who are Yomojo and what do they have to do with Yatango?

Yatango was an Australian MVNO which used to operate on the Optus 4G network, at their time of closing had around 20,000 customers . Yatango Mobile went into administration a few months after they had an unsuccessful reverse listing attempt, which was facilitated by their parent company.

This was all back in 2015 and, while it used to be relevant to your decision about whether or not to choose the new version of the company, Yomojo, we only keep this content around for consistency.

Unfortunately as the plan failed and didn’t work out, the company was left in a position without appropriate cash-flow and unable to meet their minimum capital requirements. Many industry observers had commented that while at the time of operation, Yatango was providing the services to a high level of user satisfaction, their accounting practices left little to be desired, a fact echoed by their list of creditors.

Yomojo was formed by Scott Stavretis, current acting Director, in response to administrators appointed to Yatango who had planned to sell of the assets including subscribers information. Scott , replied in a press release sent to iTWire, that he established this new company to help existing Yatango subscribers continue using their prepaid plans, without losing connectivity or experiencing downtime. Scott is going this at the same time, allowing previous Yatango investors to join his new company and support his future vision of the direction that Yatango should of headed in.

All Yatango subscribers have been ported over to Yomojo and service continues as per usual, operating on the 3G and 4G Optus network. Yomojo offer users the same competitive pricing that Yatango used to provide to their users, as well as a range of SIM only prepaid plans, each with the ability to choose your spend level based on personal usage requirements.

While Yatango Mobile started off with all the right goals and ambitions, it was their poor accounting and management which lead to their downfall. With the launch of Yomojo, it’s clear to see that in the MVNO space they are trying to replicate the Yatango business model and run the company as Yatango should have been from the get go.
