For many low to medium volume users who are looking for a better deal, but still need to have some data allowance for their smart phone, Amaysim’s Flexi plan addresses that gap in the market, with a reasonable price point ($19.90), a reasonable data allocation (500 MB) and even better value call rates than their As You Go plan.

Coverage and Network

Amaysim’s service is delivered by the Optus 3G/4G Network, so coverage across Australia is exceptionally good with 98.5% coverage of the population. With the switch on of Amaysim’s 4G service, excess data rates have increased from 5c/MB to 7.2c/MB, however data is now charged per kb rather than per MB.

Call Rates and Data Packs

For $19.90 per month, you receive 500 MB of data plus $19.90 worth of credit to use on almost anything you want, including national and international calls, data packs, and SMS/MMS. Unlike the “cap” plans that are being pushed by most providers these days where calls are really expensive (usually these are around 90c/min plus 35c flagfall), the Amaysim Flexi plan is completely different.

Usage rates on this plan are less than the Amaysim As You Go plan, a throwback to the days when the more you spent per month, the cheaper your call costs became. Calls are just 9c/minute to landlines or mobiles, SMS is 9c and data is 7.2c/MB once you go over the 500 MB inclusion unless you choose to add a data pack with some of your included credit.

Mobile Data

The Amaysim Flexi plan includes 500 MB of data, however if you want more, you can use your included $19.90 of credit to buy a data pack to add on to your data allowance, such as the 1 GB pack for $9.90. Data speeds on the Optus 4G network are fast, which makes this a perfect plan if you use your mobile to occasionally access the internet for email, social media, etc.


If your phone is unlocked and you’re a low to medium usage user who is looking for a better deal for their smart phone, then Amaysim’s Flexi plan may be just what you’re after. SIM cards are available to fit standard, Micro and Nano sizes, and the included 500 MB of mobile data would provide more than enough data for a smartphone owner who doesn’t use their phone to stream video or music.
