As part of its new “Infinite” plans range, Vodafone has just released the new $100 Infinite plan. These plans definitely set a new standard for unlimited plans within the Australian mobile phone market. The $100 plan is the step above the $85 Infinite Plan as it comes with an extra GB of data and cheaper prices on handsets – as well as included calls to voicemail and 13 and 18 numbers!

Infinite – But How Infinite?
On the $100 Infinite plan you get unlimited standard national calls as well as standard national and international SMS and MMS. You also get included voicemail and calls to 13 and 18 numbers which aren’t included on the other Infinite plans. You get 4GB of data for mobile internet usage, but to make this data allowance go even further, you also get infinite access to Facebook®, MySpace, Twitter, FourSquare & LinkedIn – just access them via their mobile websites. So it seems that for the sort of normal usage that most people have it’s unlimited and infinite! If you get the $100 plan with a Blackberry handset, then the data allowances work out slightly differently. Of course check on the Vodafone website before signing up for all the details.
What’s Included Each Month?
The $100 Infinite plan is similar to the other infinite plans in that in addition to all the unlimited calls, SMS and 4GB of data, you also have credit (to the value of the monthly access fee) to use for services like international voice and video calls and re-routed calls. The added advantage of the $100 plan is that you don’t have to use this credit for voicemail or calls to 13 and 18 numbers as they are included in the infinite call component! If you do use international calls, just make sure you keep an eye on your usage to keep within the $100 of credit.
