Plan details

If you have a Pay As You Go plan you may choose to add an ALDImobile $17 Mobile Plan. The $17 Mobile Plan gives unlimited standard national calls and SMS1 and 1,000 MMS (including Video MMS) to Australian numbers to Australian numbers over 30 days. All relevant rates are shown in the table below.

This plan comes with 5.5GB data to use over 30 days.

This plan comes with unlimited data rollover which means that all your unused data allowance may be rolled over, but the following conditions apply:

  • Data rollover applies if the same Mobile Plan or an eligible Mobile Plan of higher value is acquired within 24 hours of expiry of the previous Mobile Plan. Otherwise, unused data is forfeited.
  • Standard data that is included with your plan is depleted first, and then any available rollover data is consumed.
  • If you move to a Family Plan, Data Plan or 1 Year Super Pack, data will not rollover.

If you want to make any calls to numbers not shown in the rate table below (e.g. international numbers) you will need to have adequate PAYG credit on your Pay As You Go plan. Once your Mobile Plan credit has depleted or expired, usage will then be depleted from your Pay As You Go credit (if you have any available) at Pay As You Go rates. Please refer to the Pay As You Go plan information for full rate details.

Data Top Up:You can add a Data Top Up to your Mobile Plan if you need additional data. You can purchase an additional 1GB of data for an extra $10 or 3GB for $15 and you can add it to your Mobile Plan at any time as long as the maximum additional data doesn't exceed 40GB above your included data allowance at any one time. Extra data you purchase will expire at the same time as your Mobile Plan but may be eligible for rollover.

Data is charged per 1KB which means the minimum amount of data you'll consume in each data session is 1KB.

Any charges you incur that are not included as part of your ALDImobile $17 Mobile Plan or data top up (if any) will be deducted from your Pay As You Go credit. Please refer to the Pay As You Go plan information for full rate details.

Important information about your plan

ALDImobile offers Mobile Plans, Data Plans, Family Plan and Super Packs; you can only have one of these plans or packs added to your ALDImobile service at any one time. This means you cannot have a Mobile Plan and a Data Plan at the same time. If you add a Data Plan to your service whilst you already have a plan, you will lose that plan and its inclusions and we will not reinstate them or refund the value to you, so please take care when you are recharging to ensure you are adding the correct recharge option and check if you will lose your credits.

You can add a Data Top Up any time you like up to a maximum of 40GB above your included data allowance at any one time. If you purchase a 1GB and or 3GB Data Top Up, it will expire at the same time as your Mobile Plan, regardless of when you purchase it although Data Top Up may be eligible for rollover.

Back to plan details FAQs

Data Rollover

Some of our Plans are eligible to rollover unused data allowance to your next recharge period. Check ourCritical Information Summariesto confirm eligibility.

When will my data rollover?

If your current plan is eligible for data rollover and you renew the same plan by recharging within 24 hours of it expiring, your data will rollover (how much will depend on your specific plans rules).

What happens if I change plans?

If you are changing plans, you may be eligible to rollover your data.

Data will rollover when you change plans within 24 hours of your previous plan's expiry when both the following conditions occur:

  • Your new plan is within the same plan group (e.g. Mobile Plan to Mobile Plan), and;

  • The new plan is of a higher value than your current plan (e.g. $25 Mobile Plan to $35 Mobile Plan).

If you are on a Family Plan, please note that you are not able to change to another Family Plan.

How much data can I rollover?

If your eligible recharge is on a Mobile Plan, Family Plan or 1 Year Super Pack, all you unused data will rollover.

If your eligible recharge is on Data Plan, the amount you can rollover is determined by your Data Plan, if you have more data that your plans rollover allowance the additional data will not rollover and will be forfeited.

How does data rollover work?

If your recharge is eligible and you are able to rollover unused data, your plan will have a data balance linked to your current plans allowance and a data rollover balance which contains the data you have rolled over.

When using data, your plans allowance is used first and if this has been exhausted you will then consume data from your data rollover balance.

If you have data rollover and your next recharge is not eligible for data rollover, all unused data on your service will be forfeited.

When will my data not rollover?

You data will not rollover when the following occurs:

  • Your recharge occurs 24 hours or more after your current plans expiry;

  • If you move to a different type of plan (e.g. a Mobile Plan to a Super Pack), your data will not rollover, even if the new plan value is higher.

  • If you move to a lower value plan (e.g. $35 Mobile Plan to $25 Mobile Plan), you data will not rollover, even though you are changing plans within the same plan group.
