Key facts about Vodafone mobile phones

  • Vodafone doesn't make its own phones, but instead rebrands existing models as its own
  • Most of Vodafone's prepaid phones are locked to the Vodafone network

What to consider when choosing a Vodafone phone

Vodafone offers a wide variety of premium and mid-range phones on contract terms to Australian consumers. But in terms of phones that specifically bear the Vodafone brand name, it has typically only focused on very low-cost prepaid devices.

It's not as though Vodafone has its own factory and phone R&D division pumping these phones out, though. Like similar devices you could buy that are labelled as "Telstra" or "Optus" phones, they're standard designs being built by a Chinese Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), although you rarely see much of that manufacturer's branding on Vodafone's phones.

With a focus on basic features and value, here's what you need to consider when choosing a Vodafone phone:

Looking for a Vodafone phone on a plan?

Vodafone offers plenty of plans for phones from the big brands, but when it comes to its own phones, it rarely makes them available on contract terms. That's because they're designed to sell to the crowd that just wants a simple Vodafone prepaid plan and cheap phone instead.
