There’s not a lot in the way of perks, but Southern Phone has okay pricing for its SIM Only plans.
Southern Phone mobile plans review
Southern Phone mobile features and perks
Southern Phone’s cheapest SIM Only plan doesn’t come with any perks of note. From the Medium plan upwards, though, the more you spend, the more international call credit you get: $50 for Medium, $300 for Large and $500 for X-Large. While where in the world you can call doesn’t appear to be limited, the call rates vary depending on the country.
While Southern Phone wasn’t offering senior discounts at the time of updating this review, the telco did offer a Swissvoice C50s mobile phone that’s built for senior users.
Southern Phone mobile customer support and satisfaction
Southern Phone has a decent range of support options if you have questions. You can call Southern Phone on 13 14 64 or email them via the telco’s firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Alternatively, you can get a reply within an hour via Facebook chat (about five minutes in my test) or on the Southern Phone website from either live chat or self-service support. There is a Southern Phone app for usage monitoring and the like, but the Android version hasn’t been updated since 16 July 2018 and recent reviews suggest it’s not a great app experience.
As for customer satisfaction, Southern Phone mobile has a 1.4 out of 5 rating on consumer-review website Product Review (down from 1.6 in January 2020) after close to 200 reviews. Most reviews have one star, with a breakdown of 1.8 for value for money, 1.4 for customer service and transparency, as well as 2.7 for local reception. Trustpilot only had five reviews for a score of 2.5 out of 5, but it’s worth noting that some of these reviews were in relation to Southern Phone’s NBN plans.
