ALDI TALK: Affordable Prepaid SIM Cards

posted in: Mobile Service | 47

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.

    • 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.

  • Price per minute or SMS: 0.11€ within Germany and 0.03€ within Germany to another ALDI TALK number

ALDI TALK Data/Voice Packages

ALDI TALK also offers packages with a combination of mobile LTE 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 all German numbers.

The packages are the following:

ALDI TALK Music Packages

ALDI TALK also offers two music packages that include a free music streaming subscription for Napster (called ALDI life Musik). Just like with Spotify, you can use ALDI life Musik to listen to millions of songs and audiobooks. You can stream it or download it to your device to listen offline. This music streaming service normally costs 7.99€/month.

The ALDI TALK Music Package M includes the music service and 1GB of mobile data, as well as unlimited minutes and text messages for 9.99€/month. Package L includes 2GB for 14.99€/month.

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”.

You can check your remaining mobile data with the ALDI TALK app (for Android or iPhone).

    Does Aldi Talk support roaming in Croatia? What network does it use there?

  8. Steven Ryan

    I am visiting Germany in May for 3 months. Will be arriving Munich airport. I understand in Germany you now need to register your personal details including German address when purchasing a prepaid SIM card. Can this be done in the Aldi shop or can it easily be done online. I am not a German speaker. If online are the steps simple and clear for a non German speaker?

    • MyGermanPhone

      The online registration is quite easy and the identification process „Video Ident“ is available in English as well.

    I have an Aldi Talk Plan based out of Germany. I just purchased a credit to reload my plan at an Aldi in the Netherlands, but am getting the message that the credit isn’t valid. Do Netherlands Aldi Talk credit not translate to Germany Aldi Talk?

    • MyGermanPhone

      They don’t, it’s two completely different networks, the Dutch mobile network and the German mobile network. Essentially, you don’t buy ALDI TALK credit, but credit for a specific network (in Germany it’s O2). But even if it’s the same network in another country, you cannot buy O2 credit in the UK and use it in Germany. Always buy credit in the country where the SIM card is from or buy it from the German website.
