Optus iPhone XR Plans & Prices

Advertisement

The iPhone XR is finally available to buy, and as expected, Optus is offering plenty of value for Apple buyers. The telco is selling the newer, less-expensive iPhone in all three sizes (64GB, 128GB, and 256GB) and giving customers the option of buying on a straightforward contract, or leasing their phone over two years.

Go with Optus and you can pick from plans starting at $45 per month for 4GB of data (not including your iPhone payment). There’s a variety of data options available, including 20GB, 100GB and a whopping 200GB per month. Plus, selected Optus plans include extras such as international calls and roaming data, data-free streaming, and more.

Double data offer for iPhone XR

For a limited time, you can score double data on almost all of Optus’ postpaid iPhone plans, including My Plan Plus and My Plan Flex. Sign up or re-contract before 13 January, 2019, and you’ll get twice the data on the following plans:

My Plan Plus

  • $45 Plan: was 2GB, now 4GB
  • $65 Plan: was 10GB, now 20GB
  • $85 Plan: was 25GB, now 50GB
  • $105 Plan: was 100GB, now 200GB

My Plan Flex

  • $45 Plan: was 2GB, now 4GB
  • $65 Plan: was 10GB, now 20GB
  • $85 Plan: was 25GB, now 50GB
  • $105 Plan: was 100GB, now 200GB

If you were already considering Optus’ $125 200GB plan, it makes sense to grab the double data $105 deal  – you’ll still get 200GB of data each month, but will pay less in total than on the $125 plan.

Optus’ range of postpaid plans for the iPhone XR are outlined below. Each plan can be paired with a standard two-year contract, or Optus’ My Plan Flex lease option. Prices in this table don’t include your ongoing phone payment, but you can scroll down to find out what you’ll pay with this price added on.

Optus Lease Plans for the iPhone XR

If you’re happy to lease your phone rather than buy it, you can save $10 or more each month by opting for Optus’ My Plan Flex deals. A Flex plan means that you’ll pay a monthly lease price over 24 months, then hand back your iPhone to Optus rather than keep it at the end of your contract. You also have the option of upgrading at 12 months – you’ll need to pay a $99 upgrade fee, hand back your phone to Optus, and sign a new contract.

You can combine your Flex lease payments with any of the Optus monthly plans in the table above. It’s not an option for everyone, but if you like to upgrade frequently and aren’t likely to damage your device, it could be worth a look.
