Holiday & Mobile Usage

Im going to be going to Australia shortly, and will be taking my phone, currently on T-Mobile.

I've looked at the T-Mob website and it all looks pretty expensive (which is fine) - but these are all AUS to UK rates.

Anyone know what the AUS to AUS rates will be?

Only going to be ringing/texting people in Australia, so as long as i join the same network as them the cost should be pretty cheap?

Anyone had any experience with any of the Aussie networks, or could recommend the best, i'm thinking ill be roaming on Optus

Thanks for any help, Mike.

If 2 of us both join Optus, will their regular rates still apply to us, or will they be much deerer as we are roaming on their network?

I think you're better off with getting a local PAYG sim card when you get there. It will offer you better rates.

If you use your T-Mob SIMs it will be very expensive.

Like Tony says , it will probably be cheaper to get PAYG SIMs over there but make sure your phone is unlocked first!

We've both got unlocked PDA's so we should be fine (both tri and quad-band).

Looking at that network youve got to put on £15 to start with, seems a bit steep as i was only looking to make a few calls :D

Will look into some of the other networks that T-Mob suggested, i guess the roaming costs are going to be about double what they would be if i were to get an aussie PAYG SIM?

Why don't you look on t-mob's site and find out what they charge?

T-mob dont operate in Aus, they only offer a small detail on the 4 networks that are there.

It doesnt detail whether or not calls made to the same networks will be charged differently.

I had hoped for some info from someone that might had visited so would be able to give an insight into what network to choose, but i guess not.
