ALDI TALK: Affordable Prepaid SIM Cards

posted in: Mobile Service | 105

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).

    Hello, I am living in Germany and using Aldi Talk for 2 years. Now I have to go to Belgium, Leuven to do my internship for 6 to 12 months. Can I use it in there too? I checked and there 2 Aldi in Leuven. Should I buy a new sim card or can continue to use it?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    I bought an Aldi sim card almost a week ago. It was mentioned on the packing that I will be having some free internet, calls and SMS, but when I activated the card, I got nothing. The card costed about 10 euro. Where is the problem. Kindly guide me.

    Will my SIM card receives call and sms if i won’t recharge after a month? I know i will not be able to call and sms but am i able to receive calls and sms without recharging it?

  5. Gillian Lomax

    I bought a 30 Euro Aldi talk sim card just over a week ago and made 3 brief phone calls to a place nearby, I took about 10 photos on the phone and now I find that I dont have enough to make another local phone call. Why has the sim card used up so quickly. I do everything on my laptop as far as emails and facebook. This is becoming quite expensive as its happened before.

    I am living in California for about six more month and had been using Aldi talk while in Germany.
    My account is at cero now and I don‘t know if it‘s possible to add money to it? There are SMS messages that I cannot access; do I need to buy a new SIM card?

      If it has been only six months, you can keep using this SIM card once you return to Germany. You just need to add credit to it (online or in store).
