Just looking for information as to the best sim plan to get for a trip to Australia. My phone is with Tesco Mobile but I think it may make more sense to buy a sim card when I arrive there. It will be for texting, facebook, etc.

Thanks for any advice.

If your travelling in rural areas just get Telstra. It has the most coverage. Data is really expensive in Australia.

Go for Aldi mobile. It uses the telstra network and is really cheap. You can just buy a Sim at any aldi in Australia and activate it.

We'll be in Sydney and Port Douglas so not rural.

I'll have to check with Tesco and make sure the phones aren't locked.

Thanks for the Aldi tip.

Australia is on Three's feel at home Go roam service and it would be worth contacting them also whilst you are still in the UK.

I'll check with Three as well. Just got Tesco to unlock my phone so everything is moving in the right direction now!
