Vodafone Prepay Caps vs Plans?


I want to get a prepaid SIM card when i arrive next week and I am a little confused about the differences between Prepay Plans and Prepay Caps offered by Vodafone.

My assumption so far is:

Plans vodafone.com.au/personal/…index.htm

give you 20 AUD credit for 20 AUD you pay and the credit ist good for a year.



give you e.g. 150 AUD credit for 29 AUD you pay but the credit will expire after 30 days.

Does that about sum it up?

Chris, I am as confused about this as you are, and I'm on a Vodafone plan!

There are some other things on the Caps that you don't get on the Plans:

- you can't dial 1900 numbers

- you can't txt competition lines

- you don't get the rural access agreement (national roaming)

Also, only 1 of the plans gives you the credit for the year (that's the 365 plan). The other plans (talker, txter etc.,) the credit runs out after 2 months.

I don't use my phone much so I stick with the Plan (so the credit has longer to run out).
