ALDI TALK: Affordable Prepaid SIM Cards

posted in: Mobile Service | 1

Germany Mobile Data

ALDI TALK is the mobile telecommunication provider owned by Aldi North and Aldi South, two major supermarket chains in Germany. It is using the network of O2, a network that is used by many third party providers, because it is usually more affordable than the networks of Telekom or Vodafone (D1 and D2). Read about which German mobile networks are the best here.

 

ALDI TALK offers very competitive and affordable prices, especially for mobile data. They offer internet data plans, but also packages of internet with free minutes and text messages included. If you do not make many normal calls and mostly use internet calls (VoIP), such as Skype, FaceTime or Whatsapp, you should probably choose ALDI TALK’s internet data packages.

ALDI TALK Starter-Set (Basis-Prepaid-Tarif)

 

The starter set is the most basic plan from ALDI TALK and allows you to make calls and send text messages (SMS), which are billed according to your usage. You can also use mobile data, but it costs 0.24€ per MB and is therefore quite expensive. The plan does not cost any fee per month, you only have to pay 12.99€ initially, which includes 10€ starting credit.

 

  • Order Price: 12.99€ with 10€ starting credit included
  • Price per minute or SMS: 0.11€ within Germany and 0.03€ within Germany to another ALDI TALK number
  • Calls from Germany to North America & Europe: 0.12€/minute (landline) and 0.29€/minute (mobile number)

 

ALDI TALK Internet Flatrates (500MB to 5.5GB)

ALDI TALK’s mobile data plans offer a very good value for money for people with high data consumption. You can choose between four package sizes from 500MB to 5.5GB per month. ALDI TALK’s maximum internet speed is 21.6 Mbit/s for downloads and 8.6 Mbit/s for uploads, which is rather mediocre as Vodafone and O2 offer a higher internet speed. In exchange for speed, you will get more data. In these pure internet plans, you will be billed for your calls and SMS per use. The order price is 12.99€ with 10€ starting credit and the monthly fee is automatically deducted when activating the SIM card.

ALDI TALK Data/Voice Packages

ALDI TALK also offers packages with a combination of mobile data and included minutes and SMS, like O2 or Vodafone are doing it as well. These packages pay off if you are making many calls or sending many text messages. Otherwise you would be better off buying one of the internet plans, which bills you by the amount of minutes or SMS you used. All of the packages include unlimited calls and SMS to other ALDI TALK numbers, the Allnet-Flat even to all German numbers.

The packages are the following:

 

ALDI TALK Extra Options

If you are using the basic plan without internet or included minutes, you might want to add some extra options every once in a while. Alternatively, if you use one of the internet plans and have used all of the high speed data, you can purchase an option to reset your high speed data allowance. ALDI TALK also offers a nice option for everyone who is travelling to Switzerland: For 4.99€ you can use 500MB of mobile data in Switzerland (and all of EU) for seven days.

See this overview of all ALDI TALK options:

  • Community Flat: unlimited calls/SMS to all ALDI TALK numbers – 2.99€/4 weeks
  • New High Speed Data: Reset your allowance of high speed data – starting at 3€ per reset
  • Switzerland & EU Mobile Data: 500MB – 4.99€/7 days
  • Switzerland & EU Voice Calls: 150 minutes – 4.99€/7 days

 

How to check your ALDI TALK credit balance

To buy credit for ALDI TALK, just buy a credit voucher in any ALDI supermarket in Germany (there is at least one in every town) or set up a connection to your bank account.

The bank  account connection is more convenient as it allows you to simply buy more credit from the ALDI TALK app or from the ALDI TALK website, which is then instantly available.

 

You can check your credit balance by calling 1155 or by calling*100#.

To active your credit voucher, type *104*YOUR CODE* and press “call”.
