You may not know it, but there are alternatives these days to signing long mobile phone contracts with the big providers. One such alternative that doesn’t lock you into high costs is amaysim.
amaysim AS YOU GO offers a fair and simple pricing structure; with standard calls costing 15c per minute Australia wide, any network, anytime. Standard SMS are charged at 12c each and data at 5c per MB. You buy the SIM; you get the service, with no minimum contract term and no minimum usage.
This low-priced and easy to understand service is supported by an Australian customer service centre and sits on the Optus 3G network, covering over 97% of Australia.
Thanks to amaysim, TechStyles has five amaysim SIM cards to give away to readers of TechStyles, each loaded with $50 of amaysim AS YOU GO credit. Credit on amaysim AS YOU GO lasts 90 days and, in addition to the simple low rates, there is free national unlimited mobile access to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, eBay and Foursquare (excluding links to third party content).
