Which iPhone do you want a plan for?

Aussie telcos that offer iPhone plans

Vodafone customers can choose from the newest iPhone models, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, along with the older iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus phones. These devices are available on Vodafone’s phone repayment plans, with your choice of contract length over 12, 24 or 36 months.

Once you’ve selected your device, you’ll be required to add on a postpaid plan. These plans are separate to your device repayments and they are month-to-month plans. This means you can switch your plan to another of the month-to-month plans, however cancelling will require you to pay off the remaining cost of your handset.

Like Vodafone, Telstra offers a great selection of Apple devices including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and a few older devices are still available including the iPhone X and iPhone 8.

Telstra also allows you to separate your iPhone payments from your plan. You’ll be able to choose between a 24 or 36-payment period for your new device and then bundle with one of the four month-to-month plans on offer. Technically you’re not locked into a contract on these plans, however cancelling altogether will require you to pay off the remainder of your handset.

Like Telstra and Vodafone, Optus stocks the latest devices including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. It also stocks a range of older iPhone models, including the iPhone X and iPhone 8. If you’re considering picking up a new iPhone from Optus, you can buy your device on a regular two-year mobile contract (after which the iPhone is yours to keep).

If you’re concerned about excess data charges, Vodafone and Telstra now provide ‘unlimited’ data plans for postpaid customers. Most of these plans include an allowance of high-speed 4G data each month, plus unlimited slower data (capped to 1.5Mbps).

Vodafone customers can pick from the $55 Red Plus Plan with 90GB of high-speed data or the $65 Red Plus Plan with 125GB of high-speed data. If you’re with Telstra, the telco has eliminated excess data charges from its four postpaid plans. Once you’ve used up your data inclusion, you’ll be able to continue using your data but at a capped speed of 1.5Mbps, which is still fast enough for standard-definition video streaming.

With both Telstra and Optus scrapping their respective 24-month lease plans, Australians no longer have the option of ‘renting’ an iPhone from their mobile provider. Instead, you can buy your phone outright, or on a device payment plan from any of the above telcos (Telstra, Vodafone, or Optus).

Payment plans are available on 12, 24, or 36-month contracts, depending on your choice of provider. Regardless of which plan you opt for, your phone will be yours to keep at the end of your contract (or once you’ve made all repayments).

Depending on your choice of telco and plan, you can score some great extras and inclusions to go with your new iPhone.

  • Vodafone: Vodafone’s biggest offerings usually come in the form of bonus data, discounts, ‘unlimited’ data plans (at capped speeds) and have been known to offer free subscriptions to streaming services in the past. Students can also score special offers and discounts not offered to other customers. Vodafone also allows you to add on data-free streaming packages (for music, video and more) for additional monthly costs.
  • Optus: If you love mobile streaming, Optus includes data-free streaming of sports (with most of the big European football championships), and National Geographic on selected plans. Higher-end plans also include an amount of international roaming data per month, and unlimited standard international talk and text. Optus has also offered free gifts with select devices in the past so keep an eye out for any deals on offer.
  • Telstra: Telstra includes data-free streaming of Apple Music and a range of spots (including the NRL, AFL and AFLW) as well as access to the Telstra Air WiFi network. The telco has offered bonuses in the past such as Foxtel Now subscriptions, so keep your eyes peeled for any enticing deals. Telstra also offers access to its rewards program, Telstra Plus, with points you earn able to be used to purchase devices and other items. There are also other perks to enjoy including discounted event tickets and pre-sale concert tickets.
