Ins and outs of the felix subscription.
How much does the felix subscription cost, and what's included?
Last updated: 23/08/2021

felix is a pre-paid, no lock-in contract, $35/month mobile subscription. Your felix SIM gives you unlimited data at speeds of up to 20Mbps and unlimited standard calls and texts in Australia. 


It's really easy to bring your current number over to felix too, see how here: How do I switch my number to felix?


The best part, though, is that we also plant a tree each month for every single customer that holds an active subscription with us (this is on top of being certified carbon neutral and powered by 100% renewable electricity). It's good value with good values.


For full inclusions, head over to the plan page https://felixmobile.com.au/plan/

Can I keep my existing phone number? (Yes!)
Last updated: 12/01/2022

Yep! You can absolutely keep your existing number when you switch to felix, no matter which provider you’re with. Just make sure you're not in a contract with your existing provider to avoid any nasty cancellation bill shock from them.


When signing up to felix, we’ll ask if you want a new number or if you want to switch your current number to felix.

How do I switch my number to felix?
Last updated: 12/01/2022

It’s quick and easy to switch over to felix. Two main things to remember;


- Leave your current provider's active SIM in your phone until your switch is all done (at step 3 below)


- You don't need to let your current provider know you're switching. We'll look after all that in the back-end for you!


3 steps to switching:


1. Sign up in the felix app, verify your email on your phone, and choose to activate your service using an eSIM on your compatible device, or we can send you a peachy SIM in the mail (we’ll express post it for free!)


2. Follow the steps in the app to activate right away if you’re using an eSIM. If you’re waiting for a physical SIM, log into the felix app and follow the prompts to when it arrives. The switch usually takes just a few minutes when started between 8am and 8pm Sydney time, Mon-Fri*.


3. You'll know your felix SIM is activated and your switch has gone through when your previous provider's SIM goes into SOS


*95% of switches are completed within three hours, and most of the time your number will continue to work on your current provider's SIM until the switch is completed.

Is my mobile phone compatible with a felix SIM?
Last updated: 12/01/2022

felix offers both eSIM as well as a physical SIM for approved devices  – you can pick based on what’s best for you!


eSIM refers to embedded SIM and is built in to a lot of newer phones. You can check if your phone is eSIM compatible here.


Physical SIM: your felix SIM is a 3-in-1 SIM with the ability to punch out either of three standard sizes (standard, micro, nano). So, as long as your phone isn't network locked*, an early 2019 Huawei** and can be used in Australia, then you shouldn't have a problem with SIM compatibility!


* Psst, except if your phone is network locked to Vodafone in Australia, then you can still use it on felix!


** Huwaei models available to the public on or before May 16, 2019 do not have access to the Google Play Store (Source) so individuals who have these models will therefore be unable to download the felix app to manage their subscription and activate a felix SIM.

Will I lose my contacts, photos and other data when switching to felix?
Last updated: 12/01/2022

If you store your data on the cloud (like iCloud or Google Drive) or store it on your handset (actual phone) then you won't lose any data when moving to a felix physical SIM or eSIM. However, if you have any info or data saved on your current non-felix SIM, you won't be able to access it when you start using your felix SIM.


We suggest making sure that your contacts, photos and other data are saved to your handset/cloud and not your current SIM.


Please note that you’re likely to lose voicemails when switching. To save your voicemails as a separate file, it's worth searching your phone model online to see how to do it. For iOS, tap Phone > Voicemail > tap on the voicemail > Share icon > Save to Files.
