Infinite – But How Infinite?
On the $45 Infinite plan you get unlimited standard national calls as well as standard national and international SMS and MMS. You also get 1GB 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! Of course check on the Vodafone website before signing up for all the details.
What’s Included Each Month?
The $45 Infinite plan has a slightly different approach to previous unlimited plans – in addition to all the unlimited calls, SMS and 1GB of data, you also have $45 of credit to use for services like voicemail, calls to 13/18 numbers and re-routed calls. With previous unlimited mobile plans by Vodafone and other providers, some services like voicemail and calls to 13 and 18 numbers have been charged in excess to the monthly access fee. So this is a great improvement!
What Mobile Phones Are Available?
There are lots of mobile phones available on the 12 and 24 month contract options. There are models by Apple, Nokia, HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson and Blackberry. Click here for a full list of phones on the $45 Infinite plan. Some of the great deals seem to be:

When you go to sign up, make sure you read all the details about inclusions and exclusions.
