One of the minor annoyances of the iPhone 5 is that is uses the nano SIM format, and replacement SIMs are in short supply if you're not buying on contract through a major telco. Amaysim has confirmed it won't have its own branded nano SIMs until November, but the MVNO is offering to hand-cut replacement nano SIMs for any existing customers who have purchased an iPhone 5 outright.


Prepaid works for casual mobile phone users, but many Australians choose to sign up for a contract plan, either to get better data rates or because they want the cost of their handset subsidised. But which one should you choose? This up-to-date Planhacker listing covers every contract mobile plan (and their month-by-month competitors) available in Australia.


Amaysim's Unlimited Plan is good value even at the full $39.90 price, but right now there's a sale which offers 40 per cent off the first month for new orders. Just enter the code UNL0540 at checkout. The deal runs until May 24.


Amaysim's pay-as-you-go call rates were already fairly low at 15 cents per minute with no flagfall, but now they're a little cheaper. The standard per-minute rate for all Amaysim As You Go customers has dropped to 12 cents per minute from today, and some international call rates have also fallen.


We've often suspected people spend more money than they should on mobile services, and now there's some solid proof. New research suggests that 68 per cent of Australians don't believe they get full value from their contract plans. Despite that, 45 per cent have experienced 'bill shock', where their monthly bill is much higher than expected.


Amaysim's $39.90 Unlimited SIM deal is a popular choice amongst Lifehacker readers, offering unlimited Australian calls and texts plus 4GB of data. It's already one of the cheapest mobile plans on the market, but right now you can sign up for the service and pay just $10 for the first month.


Amaysim is a fairly popular choice for prepaid mobile amongst Lifehacker readers given its generous data allowances and cheap local calls rates. If you're rocking an Amaysim SIM in your Android device, a new app will let you check your balance, recharge and change your account settings.


If you've been itching to test out Amaysim's budget mobile prices but haven't had the courage to jump in the deep end, this deal might be the push you need. Until December 12, Amaysim is offering SIM packs with $20 worth of credit for 10 bucks at 7-Eleven stores nationally.


Amaysim's existing 1GB data bundles for $9.90 are already pretty good value for mobile broadband, but you can go through 1GB quickly if you're tethering or downloading a lot of content. Amaysim has added three new data bundles to its range: 2.5GB for $19.90, 4GB for $29.90 or 10GB for $99.90.
