As Australia’s largest telco, Telstra unsurprisingly has many iPhone plans. Telstra is also king for extra perks, often throwing in bonuses like Foxtel subscriptions, Apple Music memberships, data-free music streaming and data-free sports streaming. Read on to find out what you can expect from the big blue telco when it comes to iPhone plans.

Telstra Plans for iPhone

Below are the four month-to-month postpaid plans that Telstra customers can bundle with their choice of iPhone. While these plans are offered as no lock-in plans, your device payments will be on a plan over 24 or 36 months. You can then select from the below plans to bundle with your device. The prices below don’t include your handset payment costs, but more information on what each iPhone will actually cost in total is available below the table. These are sponsored products.

  • 36 months: $61.33 per month ($2,208 in total over 36 months)

With prices beginning from $118 per month for your plan and phone, Telstra’s iPhone XS plans aren’t the cheapest available – but they do come packed with plenty of extra features. Alongside unlimited national talk and text and decent data allowances, plans include data-free entertainment streaming and no excess data charges with unlimited slow data (capped at 1.5Mbps) kicking in once you go over your data inclusion.

All postpaid iPhone plans from Telstra also feature data-free music streaming from Apple Music and data-free sports streaming from the AFL, NRL, Hyundai A-League and more.

Telstra iPhone XS Max Plans

Monthly phone payments for the 64GB iPhone XS Max:

  • 24 months: $75 per month ($1,800 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $50 per month ($1,800 in total over 36 months)

Monthly phone payments for the 256GB iPhone XS Max:

  • 24 months: $99 per month ($2,376 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $66 per month ($2,376 in total over 36 months)

The bigger, pricier iPhone is available from Telstra with prices starting at $125 per month. Again, this isn’t the cheapest way to get your hands on the iPhone XS Max, but you do get plenty of inclusions from Telstra (plus great coverage nationwide).

Telstra iPhone XR Plans

Monthly phone payments for the 64GB iPhone XR:

  • 24 months: $52 per month ($1,248 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $34.66 per month ($1,248 in total over 36 months)

Monthly phone payments for the 128GB iPhone XR:

  • 36 months: $41.33 per month ($1,488 in total over 36 months)

The somewhat more affordable alternative to the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR is available to buy over 24 or 36-month payment period. You’ll have the same selection of plans as with all iPhones and enjoy access to Telstra’s sports and entertainment bonuses.

iPhone X

Telstra iPhone X Plans

Monthly phone payments for the 64GB iPhone X:

  • 24 months: $62 per month ($1,488 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $41.33 per month ($1,488 in total over 36 months)

While Apple has now discontinued the iPhone X, you can still pick up the 64GB model from Telstra over the 24 or 36-month payment period.

Although the iPhone XS has all but phased out the X, you’re still looking at paying over $100 per month for your phone bundled with a plan. Nevertheless, those wanting a premium smartphone and premium network probably already know this.

Telstra iPhone 8 Plus Plans

If you feel like you need a bigger screen, the iPhone 8 Plus may be more up your alley, however this device is no longer in stock with Telstra. You’ll need to buy this device outright from another retailer and then bundle with a Telstra postpaid plan.

Telstra iPhone 8 Plans

Monthly phone payments for the 64GB iPhone 8:

  • 24 months: $41 per month ($984 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $27.33 per month ($984 in total over 36 months)

This older device isn’t as readily available so with Telstra, you’ll only be able to pick up the 64GB iPhone 8 on a plan. Once you’ve selected your payment period, you can then choose your preferred postpaid plan to bundle with this device.

Telstra iPhone 7 Plans

The iPhone 7 may be ‘so 2016’, but it’s still a top choice for those on the hunt for a premium phone at a not-so-premium price. You’ll no longer find stocks of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus from Telstra, but you might find the device available from retailers which can then be paired with a Telstra plan.

Telstra iPhone 6S Plans

Monthly phone payments for the 32GB iPhone XS:

  • 24 months: $24 per month ($576 in total over 24 months)
  • 36 months: $16 per month ($576 in total over 36 months)

The iPhone 6 and 6S still command a small but strong following, probably due in part to the phones retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack. The later iterations above lack this in favour of water resistance. Nevertheless, if you’re after an iPhone, but don’t want to shell out the big bucks, then these deals may be what you’re after.

The iPhone 6s is now the oldest device you can pick up on a plan with Telstra. The iPhone 6 is available to buy outright as a prepaid phone for $379, and you can also buy the 6s outright as a prepaid phone for $429.

Should I get a Telstra iPhone plan?

Telstra is Australia’s largest mobile network and has a comprehensive array of iPhone plans. From the older devices to the premium XS, Telstra has you covered. Be prepared to pay for it, however, especially with the latest iPhone XS, XS Max and XR devices.

  • Many plans cost over $100, while older and smaller devices can be found for less than $80 a month.
  • Telstra includes things like data-free sports and Apple Music streaming
  • International call and SMS will need to be added on to plans for an extra monthly cost

In any case, Telstra is sure to be one of the most popular providers to stock the latest iPhones and for good reason too. Telstra is arguably the king for hot phone plans, but to say it’s a cheap iPhone provider may be another question entirely.
