Thanks for this- I think the Vaya $18 per month plan is the best I can find. Just paid $10 to Optus for 5 days of unlimited everything whilst I look around a bit and get a permanent address!

Hi mate, can you tell us more about the $10 for 5 days of everything deal you had with Optus ? I can't find it on their web site and it sounds like just what I'm looking for.
