Most Australian mobile services, have confusing rate plans that include flagfalls (a connection charge of up to 40c per call on top of the per minute cost) and misleading capped plans (where the mobile network makes a big deal about giving you something like $100 of value for $20 while glossing over important details like the fact that your calls can cost around 90c per minute with a minimum monthly commitment even if you make very few calls).
Amaysim is different. It is unique among Australian mobile phone services in that its call charges are actually easy to understand, and not only that, they’re the cheapest deal available on the Australian market. Amaysim has a simple 15c per minute charge for standard calls to landlines and mobile phones in Australia, 12c text messages and 5c per MB for data, plus no flagfall and no minimum monthly spend.

Can I use it in an Apple iPhone?
The amaysim will work in your iPhone as long as your iPhone is unlocked. You will need to contact your mobile operator to have your phone unlocked and bear in mind that unlocking an iPhone is a more complex procedure than most other phones and will involve a reset in iTunes. Depending on your home network, it can take up to one week to unlock an iPhone. Apple iPhones purchased from an Apple store are usually already unlocked and ready to use with any SIM card.
As long as your phone is unlocked, it will work with all services including voice, text messages and data. The amaysim SIM card is designed to be used both as a regular mini SIM card (for the original iPhone, iPhone 3 and iPhone 3Gs) and as a micro SIM (for the Apple iPhone 4).
As the Apple iPhone 4 is an eight-band phone (four GSM bands and four 3G bands), it will also work on the 900Mhz 3G band giving you fast data access in remote areas of rural Australia. Earlier 3G iPhones (the iPhone 3G and 3Gs) will give you 3G data access in most large towns and cities but will download data on the slower 2G network in rural areas.
