Optus iPhone Plans & Prices

Advertisement

Optus is one of the biggest telcos in Australia, and therefore has one of the most comprehensive ranges of iPhone plans in Australia. Plans for the latest iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max start at over $100 a month, but there’s a lot of content beneath these digits. Expect extras like included Optus Sport, data bonuses and unlimited national calls and texts. However, how much are you willing to pay to get the latest tech? Find out as we compare Optus iPhone plans.

Optus Plans for iPhone

Whether you’re choosing the latest iPhone model or one of the older devices, you’ll have a selection of phone plans to bundle with your new phone. Plans start at $39 with 10GB of data and go up to $79 with 120GB of data per month, plus international call and roaming extras. You can also choose to build your own plan with your choice of data and international inclusions. These plan prices don’t include the monthly handset costs, as the payment of your handset depends on the model and storage size. Read on for more information about plans and prices for the various iPhone models that are available from Optus.

Optus iPhone

Optus iPhone X Plans

The iPhone X is no longer available from Optus. If you wish to purchase this device, you will need to buy it outright from retailers that may still have stock or second hand, and pair with a SIM-only plan.

Optus iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Plans

  • 64GB iPhone 8 plans start at $61 a month ($39 plan + $22 phone payment) over a 36-month payment period

As these are older iPhone devices, there are limited stocks and only 64GB models available from Optus.

Optus iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Plans

  • 32GB model from $52.86 a month ($39 plan + $13.86 phone payment) over 36 months
  • 128GB model from $56 a month ($39 plan + $17 phone payment) over 36 months

As these devices are a few years old, its a harder model to come by, and Optus no longer has the 7 Plus available. If you’re dedicated to this iPhone 7 Plus on an Optus plan, you’ll need to buy the device outright from a retailer (or secondhand), and bundle with a SIM-only plan.

Should I get an Optus iPhone plan?

Optus is one of the premier providers of iPhone plans in Australia – and its base prices are some of the cheapest in the country as well. You can pick up the iPhone XS for just over $100, but the higher plan cost (and internal device storage), the more you’ll be paying.

However, for the price you pay, Optus throws in quite a lot, such as Optus Sport, unlimited international calls & texts and other goodies from time to time. Against its main rival Telstra, Optus often works out slightly cheaper for an equivalent plan.

Optus pretty much has it all – from data to streaming, to generous international calls & texts. For a competitive iPhone phone plan, Optus is well worth a look into.

Optus iPhone Plans – in summary

Plan Price Inclusions
$39 Small Choice Plan $39 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 10GB data
$49 Medium Choice Plan $49 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 60GB data
$59 Large Choice Plan $59 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 100GB data
$79 Extra Large Choice Plan $79 Unlimited standard national calls and texts, 120GB data
