Optus iPhone XS Max plans revealed

Advertisement

Optus has revealed its iPhone XS Max plans, and there’s lots to get excited about. The telco will offer all three model sizes with a variety of plans, and – like Telstra – will provide customers the option to lease their device, rather than pay it off on a traditional two-year contract.

If you’re hoping to pre-order with Optus, you’ll be able to pair your phone with mobile plans beginning from $45 per month. Data inclusions begin at 2GB monthly, all the way up to a massive 200GB – so if you’re an avid Netflixer, gamer, or streamer of any description, Optus has your data needs covered.

Double data offer for iPhone XS Max

For a limited time, you can score double data on almost all of Optus’ postpaid iPhone plans, including My Plan Pus and My Plan Flex. Sign up or re-contract before 9 October, 2018, 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 may pay less in total than on the $125 plan.

Optus’ range of postpaid plans are outlined below. Each plan is suitable for 4G Plus, 4G and 3G use, and can be paired with a standard two-year contract, or Optus’ My Plan Flex lease option.

Optus Lease Plans for the iPhone XS Max

If you’re happy to lease your phone rather than buy it, you can save $10 each month by opting for Optus’ My Plan Flex deals. These 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 the upgrade frequently and aren’t likely to damage your device, it could be worth a look.
