|Best Prepaid Mobile Review – Virgin Mobile
Based on the traffic our prepaid plans site receives and the options that Virgin Mobile makes available through their prepaid mobile plans, they would surely have to be one of the market leaders within the prepaid mobile market. So what is so good about Virgin? One of their most popular plans and the cheapest plan on the market (from the key providers) at the moment is Bean Counter. It offers 10c calls per minute plus 10c SMS with a 45 day expiry. No one else comes close. But it’s not just Bean Counter which makes Virgin Mobile so popular, they also offer a variety of plans catering for those that like to talk a lot, those that require a longer expiry, those who SMS a lot and those that like a bit of data included with their new “Your Caps”. The calls rates (and SMS) are free when calling Virgin to Virgin and 45c per 30 seconds when you call non Virgin mobiles. What they also come with is quite a bit of call credit eg $29 Big Cap has $450 worth of credit plus 200MB of data (bonus 1GB data). Probably enough data to send and receive a few emails. Voice mail for all of the Virgin prepaid mobile plans is free in Australia. Virgin also has a great range of prepaid mobile phones for you to purchase.

Telstra offers a startup of $20 worth of credit. Telstra meters the value of the data on your plan, not the number of megabytes you have left. The initial $20 offers 250MB, and you can add credit to your pre-paid account; that credit reduces at a fixed rate per megabyte used and will expire after 30 days unless you recharge the service. When you recharge, any remaining credit is rolled over. The fixed rate varies based on the amount of credit you last put on your service. For example, if you put $20 of credit in, Telstra charges 8c per megabyte (bare in mind that the $20 recharge lasts for 21 days). But if you put $80 of credit in, Telstra reduces the rate to just 21.95c per megabyte, which applies to all your remaining credit, not just the $80.
