We are (patiently) waiting our visa approval (7 months and counting) and hope to be in Adelaide by about Sept/Oct this year.
I was born and bred in Adelaide but have spent the last 7 years in the UK and only been home twice for a quick holiday with the partner and our kids so a lot has changed in the time I have been away and now I am trying to put together a budget for our return and am kind of stumped when it comes to mobile phones and sim only plans etc.
My partner and I both have iPhones which we have bought outright (we arent tied to any contract here in the UK) and we are hoping not to be tied into any contracts when we return to Australia (at least to start with anyways).
I am just after some advice on the best companies to go with for sim only as well as an idea of how much data people generally use in any given month.
Our phones are wi-fi and 3G compatible and we are planning on staying with my mum for a few months when we arrive (and she has wi-fi) so it will only be using our data allotment when we are out and about.
Do people suggest we go with a high data allowance or would a relatively small one (say 1 or 3gb) be plenty? I generally get through about 600mb a month and my partner is probably the same or a bit less but I find London has a pretty decent wi-fi system when we are out and about as a lot of shops will give you free wi-fi if you log in etc. Is Adelaide the same or is it still difficult to get a wi-fi signal when out of your own home?
