Best Vodafone mobile plans: our picks
Best SIM-only option
For most users, Vodafone’s AU$40 Lite plan should offer enough data at an affordable price point. Over your first 12 months, you’ll pay a discounted rate of AU$35 to get 50GB of data each month. You’ll also get unlimited calls and text to standard numbers in Australia, and three months of Amazon Prime for free.
Total minimum cost is AU$35View Deal
Best overall phone + plan combos
Best overall iPhone + plan combo
Among the big three telcos, Vodafone is the cheapest place to get the new iPhone 12. We’d recommend pairing the phone with the AU$40 Lite plan, which is currently discounted by AU$5 a month, so you’ll pay just AU$35 for 50GB of data. That’s pretty unbeatable. On a 24-month contract, that’ll see you pay AU$91.20 each billing.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,188.80
Best overall Android + plan combo
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G brings the headline features of the regular S20 to a lower price point. We think the AU$40 Lite plan offers the best-value because Vodafone has reduced the plan’s price by AU$5 a month. That means you’ll pay AU$35 for 50GB of data, which frankly, is pretty epic. Pair the plan with this 5G version of the phone and you’ll pay AU$78.37 each billing. If you’re not interested in 5G, you can get the S20 FE 4G model on the same plan for AU$72.12 a month.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$1,880.88

Best cheap iPhone + plan combo
For Apple’s cheapest iPhone, this AU$63.29p/m option is pretty compelling, pairing Vodafone’s AU$40 Lite plan with an iPhone SE in red, black or white. While this plan is usually AU$40 a month, Vodafone has discounted it by AU$5 a month, which will instead see you pay AU$35 for 50GB of data. Unlimited standard national calls and text in Australia are included, as well as three months of Amazon Prime for free.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$1,518.96
Best cheap Android phone + plan combo
The Google Pixel 5 brings great camera software and a clean Android interface to an affordable phone. We’d recommend pairing the device with Vodafone’s AU$40 Lite plan, as that’ll set you up with 50GB of data for just AU$76.62 a month. The plan is normally AU$40, but with the discount you’ll pay just AU$35 for that decent amount of data. Three months of Amazon Prime is also included at no extra cost.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$1,838.88

Best premium iPhone + plan combo
If you’re wanting to keep up with the latest from Apple, then consider matching the iPhone 12 Pro with this plan. Vodafone has cut the price of its AU$55 Super plan by AU$10 a month, so you’ll pay AU$45 in plan fees for 100GB of data. When paired with handset repayments, it’s AU$115.79p/m on a 24-month contract.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,778.96
Best premium Android + plan combo
Vodafone’s 5G network is in the early days of rolling out, so while coverage may not be available in your area just yet, this is a good option if you want a future-proof smartphone. Pair the Note 20 5G with Vodafone’s AU$55 Super plan, which is currently discounted by AU$10 a month, so you’ll pay AU$45 for a massive 100GB of data. All told, the repayment plan will set you back AU$101.20p/m.
Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,428.80
