Optus plans and deals for the Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra

The long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone range is finally here, offering three brand-new Android phones with 5G capability. And if you’re looking to pick up any of the new phones on a telco plan, Optus is offering each S21 model on a variety of plan and payment options.

The telco will stock the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra in selected colours, with each device available on 12, 24 or 36-month payment periods bundled with a postpaid phone plan. Read on for all the details on Optus’ Galaxy S21 plans, prices and deals.

Optus plans and prices

Optus’ plans give you all the essentials, plus some great data inclusions and the option to ‘mix and match’ extras and create your own customised plan. You can pair your S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra with any of the below month-to-month ‘Choice’ plans, starting at $45 for 20GB of data and going up to $85 for 240GB, excluding the cost of your device.

The following table shows a selection of Optus plans from Canstar Blue’s database, listed in order of advertised standard cost, lowest to highest, then by their data allowance, largest to smallest. Use our comparison tool to see a wider range of plans from other providers.

Samsung Galaxy S21 from Optus

If you’re eyeing Optus for your S21 plan, the telco now offers 12, 24, and 36-month device payment options, which can be bundled with any of the month-to-month plans listed above. While you’re technically not locked into the plan itself (and free to swap between plans if you need), cancelling your plan with Optus requires you to pay off the remainder of the device before you can leave.

If you do want to buy the S21 on a 12, 24, or 36-month plan from Optus, payment details and total prices are below.

About Optus phone plans

A winner of Canstar Blue’s Outstanding Value phone-on-a-plan award in 2019 and 2020, Optus offers four base month-to-month postpaid plans. Prices begin at $45 for 20GB of full-speed data, plus unlimited standard national talk and text, and options are available up to 240GB. Plans also include endless data capped at speeds of 1.5Mbps, so once your included high-speed gigabyte allowance is reached, you’ll simply be switched to a slower speed until your billing cycle resets (meaning you won’t pay excess data charges in Australia).

All plans offer data sharing and a data-free subscription to Optus Sport + Fitness. Medium plans and up also feature unlimited international talk and text from Australia to 35 countries. Each Optus plan also includes free access to the Optus 5G mobile network where available, meaning you’ll be able to test out the S21’s 5G capabilities at no extra cost if you’re in an area with Optus 5G coverage.
