International Roaming allows you to use your Internode mobile service while overseas. The services available are dependent on the country you are in.
Activating International Roaming
You must activate international roaming via My Internode before going overseas. At the time of activation, Internode will charge an amount to increase your Prepaid Balance to $500 to cover the cost of any applicable international roaming usage.
The entire unused Prepaid Balance amount will be credited back to your account 30 days after you have deactivated International Roaming. If further Prepaid Balance is required after the credit is applied, it can be purchased through My Internode .

After you purchase an Internode mobile plan, we’ll send you a triple-cut SIM card with the following sizes: Standard, Micro and Nano.
Once you receive the SIM card, simply push out the SIM type you need.
If you are already an Internode customer and need a replacement SIM, please call 1300 704 037.
Customers who purchase an Internode mobile plan can only obtain 4G speeds when they use a 4G-ready phone (LTE 1800/850 MHz) in 4G coverage areas as per the detailed coverage map above. When customers are not within a 4G coverage area or their mobile handset is not 4G compatible, the mobile service will automatically switch over to 3G and speeds will be much less than that of 4G.
When inside 4G coverage areas actual speeds vary due to factors such as location, distance from the base station, local terrain, user numbers, hardware & software configuration and download source/upload destination.
- Unlimited calls, SMS and MMS to standard Australian numbers (includes 13/1300) (for use in Australia)
- Unlimited voicemail deposit and retrieval
- Included data as specified for the plan you have purchased
- 100 minutes of international calls per month (6GB with Talk & Text Plan only)
Standard rates apply for usage outside of the included calls and for excess data. Unused included calls and included data are forfeited at the end of each monthly billing period. Any unlimited usage provided is only for use in Australia.
- Calls to international numbers (except 30GB with Talk and Text plan)
- Calls to international numbers after the first 100 minutes (30GB with Talk & Text Plan)
- SMS and MMS to international numbers
- Calls to satellite phones
- Third Party content
- Video calls to standard Australian and international numbers
- International roaming, Directory Assistance and other Enhanced Services
Calls and SMS to 19 numbers, diversion to International numbers and Premium SMS/MMS are not supported.
Internode plans have a specific amount of included data each month. Data usage (including for social networking) is not unlimited and will be taken out of your included data.
Mobile data is enabled by default on all Internode plans. When using Mobile data, you are able to use services like internet browsing, email, navigation, downloading maps, checking the weather and various other online services on your mobile phone. These services use data.
- If you exceed your plan's included mobile data value, additional excess data usage charges may be payable in accordance with the terms of the plan you acquire.
- Data usage includes combined upload & download data transfer.
- Any unused included mobile data in a month does not roll over into subsequent months and will be forfeited at the end of each monthly billing period.
- The data usage records in MyInternode may be delayed by up to 30 minutes.
Some mobile phones have the capability to run multiple data sessions at the same time. This will be recorded in your mobile usage as overlapping data usage within the same time periods.
These Internode mobile services are prepaid. You must pay the monthly recurring charges in advance. In addition, you have the option to make additional prepayment for usage that is not within the included value for your plan (“Additional Prepayment”) up to the amount of the Additional Prepayment or the balance of it from time to time. You may make Additional Prepayment at the time of commencement of your service or at any time or times afterwards via the MyInternode section of the Internode website. If you choose to make Additional Prepayment, the amount will be debited from your nominated bank account or credit card. We will send you messages about your usage during the month. If your service is cancelled any unused balance of the Additional Prepayment (“Prepaid Balance”) will not be refunded to you but will be retained by Internode. You agree that no bill will be provided for this service and that direct debiting of your account or charge to your credit card may occur notwithstanding that no bill is provided and that it may occur even though you may not have had the opportunity to check charges at least 10 working days before the debit.
These plans have a certain amount of included data each monthly billing cycle. If at any time in a billing cycle you use more than the amount of included data, we will charge $10 out of your Prepaid Balance to increase the amount of included data available in that particular billing cycle by 2GB. If there is insufficient funds in your Prepaid Balance, your mobile data will become inactive until your Prepaid Balance is topped up to a sufficient level. If your usage is high, this can occur more than once per month.
Example of charges:
- 1MB excess data: We will charge $10 out of your Prepaid Balance which will give you an extra 2GB to use for the billing period
- Over 2GB excess data: We will charge another $10 out of your Prepaid Balance which will give you another extra 2GB to use for the billing period
Internode will endeavour to warn you via SMS when you are about to exceed and have exceeded your included plan value amount. Internode displays the information regarding usage to you (via MyInternode) 30 minutes after you accrue it. You are responsible for any usage irrespective of any warnings.
How am I billed for my mobile service?
Internode's mobile service is provided on prepaid basis. Internode will debit your bank account/credit card for the following initial charges during the registration process.
- First month's monthly charge
- Any Prepaid Balance you have requested during signup.
Each month thereafter, you will be charged 7 days prior to the end of the monthly period for the following month's monthly charge.
Are Voicemail deposits and retrievals unlimited?
Is there a flagfall or call connection fee for diversion to Australian numbers?
What happens if I use less than my included value?
If you have used less than your monthly included value, the remaining amount will expire at the end of the month. If you use less than the advertised price of the plan you will still have to pay the same minimum monthly charge (which is the advertised price of the plan).
What happens when I use more than my included value?
You will be charged for the calls made outside your included value based on the call rates advertised - funds will be taken out of your Prepaid Balance. If your Prepaid Balance is insufficient, you will not be able to make any usage that is not part of your included value.
I wish to send an audio/voice SMS from my handset. How would I be charged?
Audio/voice SMS is charged as standard MMS. Please view our call rates here
How does the optional Prepaid Balance work?
- In addition to the monthly recurring charges for the included value for your plan, you have the option to make additional prepayment for usage that is not within the included value for your plan up to the amount of that additional prepayment or the balance of it from time to time (Prepaid Balance).
- Prepayment is optional, your default Prepaid Balance is $0.
- You can check or top up your Prepaid Balance at the time of commencement of your service or at any time or times afterwards by logging into MyInternode
- If you choose to top up your Prepaid Balance, the amount will be debited from your nominated bank account or credit card. We will send you messages about your usage during the month.
- If your service is canceled any unused Prepaid Balance will not be refunded to you but will be retained by Internode.
Will I get a text message if I have reached my included value?
Yes. We will send you an SMS alert if you reach 50% and 85% or if you exceed your included value.
What spend management tools does Internode offer?
For mobile services, you can monitor your actual usage by logging into MyInternode. The usage displayed will be delayed for some call types and data usage for up to 30 minutes, and longer for international roaming calls and for any third party services ordered through your mobile service. You can also turn off data, bar outbound calls of various types, restrict roaming, and make use of other spend management tools at no charge, all via MyInternode.

Can I bring my own phone?
Of course! However, you may need to unlock your handset from your previous mobile phone provider if it is not able to function on the Vodafone network.
What is 4G?
4G is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology that is capable of much faster speeds compared to 3G. It’s enabled by default on all Internode plans, provided that:
- You have a 4G (LTE 1800/850 MHz) compatible handset
- 4G is enabled on your handset
- You are in a 4G coverage area
If these condition are not met, you will be limited to 3G where available and speeds will be much less than that of 4G.
How do I activate my voicemail?
For your convenience, your voicemail is automatically activated when you connect to our mobile network. To record a personalised greeting or change your settings, simply call 121 and follow the prompts.
To retrieve your voicemail, dial 121. Voicemail retrieval is not charged on Internode plans.
If you are overseas, you will need to dial +61-414-121-121 to retrieve your voicemail. Please note roaming charges will apply if you are calling from your mobile or, if you are using another device overseas, please check the applicable calls rates to Australia.
How do I check my usage and invoices?
You can check your mobile usage at any time by logging into MyInternode.
What’s required for Video calling?
Video calling is handset dependent and both parties of the call must be in a 3G/4G coverage area. For coverage details see coverage.
Which countries can I send international SMS to?
Generally, you can send SMS to countries you can make international calls to. Check our call rates page to see the list of countries you can call from your plan.
Can I use my Internode mobile overseas? (International Roaming)
See Roaming FAQs.
How do I move all my SIM Card contacts to my new Internode SIM Card?
Firstly, save all your contacts from your previous SIM Card onto the phone. If you do not know how to do this, try consulting your mobile phone manual. Once you have moved all of your contacts onto the phone memory, simply insert the new SIM Card and transfer the contacts from the phone onto the SIM Card!
Can I use my BlackBerry handset on an Internode mobile plan for push email and data?
No, Internode mobile plans are not suitable for use with Blackberry push email and data. Internode does not supply and support BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS). Only voice calls and SMS are supported.
Can I manage my mobile service online?
Yes, you can manage your mobile service online by logging into MyInternode. This will allow you to modify your mobile features such as activating/deactivating data, International Roaming, diversions, and more.
How do I set up call forwarding to international numbers?
Call forwarding to international numbers is not available.
Can I use internet tethering with Internode mobile?
Yes, Internode mobile supports tethering. Tethering will use mobile data from your Internode mobile plan. Any mobile data usage not included in your plan is charged as an excess which comes out of your Prepaid Balance.
In order to use tethering:
- Your handset must support tethering
- Mobile data must be enabled - refer to your handset’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for support information on how to enable tethering on your phone.
What are the SIM card types Internode offers?
After you purchase an Internode mobile plan, we will send you a triple-cut SIM card for sizes: Standard, Micro and Nano.
Nano: For iPhones, iPads and the latest Android phones, push out the Nano area.
Micro: For most smartphones, push out the Micro area.
Standard: For older phones, push out the Standard area.
Once you receive the SIM card, simply push out the SIM type you need.
If you are already an Internode customer and need a replacement SIM, please call 1300 704 037.
What’s included/excluded in my plan?
See your mobile plan included and excluded usage.
Can I change from an existing Internode mobile plan to the new Internode plan?
How do I enable International Roaming?
International Roaming calls are not included in the included value. To use your Internode mobile overseas, you need to call us on 1300 788 233 to request activation of International Roaming.
At the time of activation of international roaming, Internode will charge an amount to increase your Prepaid Balance to $500 to cover the cost of International Roaming usage.
The entire unused Prepaid Balance amount will be credited back to your account 30 days after you have deactivated International Roaming. If further Prepaid Balance is required after the credit is applied, it can be purchased through MyInternode.
How do I contact Internode from overseas?
The easiest and most cost effective way to manage your account while you are overseas is to log in to MyInternode. Make sure you’re able to log in before you leave - if you have any trouble, we can help you reset your login details.
If you need to contact us by phone, please call our international number, +61 8 8228 2999, for assistance. This call will be charged at the normal international rate from that country's service provider to Australia.
Can I use my current mobile phone when overseas?
- Your destination country has a mobile network.
- The mobile network in the destination country is compatible with your mobile handset.
- International Roaming has been enabled on your Internode mobile plan (or you have purchased a mobile plan in your destination country and inserted the alternate SIM card into your handset).
Note that the mobile network and/or carriers in your destination country may not support all the services you’re used to, such as Voicemail, SurePage and SMS.
How can I reduce the costs of incoming calls while International Roaming?
An easy way of reducing incoming call costs is to:
- Set an unconditional diversion on your mobile phone directing all incoming calls to your voicemail box in Australia without the call routing overseas (meaning your phone will not ring). Doing this will not incur you any excess charges although there will be diversion charges depending on the plan you are on. This way, you can then make one international call from either your mobile phone or from a fixed line phone to collect all your voicemail messages.
- You may also want to record a voicemail greeting, which states you are currently overseas (or unavailable) but you are able to respond to messages left. You may even leave your email address on your message for friends and colleagues to contact.
- Another option is to remove all voicemail diversions so that you will only be charged for calls you answer. To listen to voicemail messages whilst roaming call +61 414 121 121 (Charged at the normal international call rate from the country you are in to Australia).
How are my bills paid while I'm away?
Your bills will be paid as usual while you are away. Please ensure you have sufficient funds in your account on the due debit date. You can access your invoices via MyInternode.
Why have I been charged twice for one SMS I sent while overseas?
Each SMS you send has two components. This includes an international and local component and is displayed on your bill as two separate entries.
How would I be charged if I make a phone call to another roaming enabled number which is not a local number in the country I am currently in?
You will be charged with the international call rate for roaming, as the call recipient will still be considered as an international number even if the number is an Australian number. For example, if you are currently roaming in Thailand and you make a phone call to another Australian roaming in Thailand, you will be charged with the international call rate for roaming in Thailand. See our roaming charges.
Lost or stolen handsets while overseas?
If your SIM card or mobile phone is lost or stolen, please either visit our website or contact us on +61 8 8228 2999 for assistance. This call will be charged at the normal international rate from that country’s service provider to Australia. Once we are notified, we will suspend your service so calls cannot be made. There may be a charge involved for a new SIM card.
Why is Internode mobile moving to the Vodafone network?
As part of an exciting new partnership with Vodafone, Internode has begun selling plans that are powered by the Vodafone network. Simply put, this change allows us to deliver better value to our mobile customers. On these new plans, Internode will still be your mobile service provider and take care of all support and billing.
Will Internode invite me to move to the Vodafone network?
Yes. We are inviting customers to move to the Vodafone network in batches as there are limitations on the number of customers that we and the industry can accommodate transferring daily. Eventually all Internode mobile customers on the Optus network will be invited to move. The entire migration process will take several weeks.
Will I need a new SIM card in the Vodafone network?
Yes. This will be supplied as part of your migration or new service order.
If I accept the invitation, will my number get transferred across to the Vodafone network?
Yes, your mobile number will be transferred to the Vodafone network automatically after you activate your new Internode SIM card. You will remain an Internode customer.
Will there be any changes to my mobile plan?
There may be changes to your mobile plan in the Vodafone network. In general, the changes are beneficial for you but please go through the details of your new plan including the Critical Information Summary to assess whether it is suitable for you.
What happens if I don't want to move to the Vodafone network?
We recommend you accept the invitation to move to the Vodafone network as early as possible to avoid any inconvenience. If you do not accept the invitation and your existing plan is discontinued in the future, we will provide you with the appropriate notice.
How can I check the mobile coverage in my area and if my device is compatible with the Vodafone network?
Please check our Coverage map for mobile coverage. If you’re not sure if your device is locked to a mobile network outside of the Vodafone network, please contact your current mobile provider and/or the place of purchase for your mobile handset.
Is there any fee I have to pay to move to the Vodafone network?
No. Once you are invited to move to the Vodafone network, we will send a new SIM card to you free of charge.
Can I choose a different plan to the one offered to me in the invitation?
Yes. When you activate your new Internode SIM card online, you will be given the option to take up the offered plan, or choose from the full range of plans Internode sells on the Vodafone network.
Someone I know received an invitation from Internode with a different offer from the one I received. Can I get that offer?
No, the offer is available only for the Internode mobile service number addressed in the invitation. The offer made to you is based on your existing mobile plan.
- Log in to MyInternode with the username and password you created when you placed your mobile order.
- Select Activate SIM Card. Activations for new numbers should complete within 2 hours.
- If you’re porting an existing mobile number to us, just keep using your old SIM card until it stops working, then that’s your cue to switch to your new Internode Mobile SIM card.
