Choosing the type of plan
You will need to get either a prepaid card or set up a contract with a service provider. Possible charges include a connection fee, a monthly access fee and a usage fee. If you intend to use your current mobile phone, you will need to check whether your phone is locked to a specific carrier.
You can make an international call from any phone in Australia, including payphones. Dial:
- the international access code (0011)
- your country code
- the area code
- the local number.
To reduce costs, we recommend purchasing pre-paid international calling cards that offer cheaper rates and are available from most newsagencies, post offices, petrol stations and convenience stores.
