The wait for Apple’s iPhone XR is over and if you’re looking for feature-packed plans to pair with your new device, Telstra has you covered. The telco is offering the newest Apple smartphones in store and online and stocks the handsets in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB sizes, all available to bundle with a postpaid plan.
Telstra’s postpaid phone plans
Following in the footsteps of Vodafone, Telstra now offers its device payments separate to the plans. This allows for more flexibility without being locked into a 24-month phone plan. You’ll be able to choose between 24 or 36-month payment period for your device and add on any of the four month-to-month postpaid plans on offer. The device payment period and your plan choice will determine your monthly bill.
It’s worth noting that while the postpaid plans are no lock-in, choosing a device from Telstra will put you on a contract to pay for that device. You’re free to switch between Telstra’s four plans, however cancelling altogether will require you to pay off the remainder of your handset.

Telstra plans and pricing for the iPhone XR
Sports fans have plenty of reasons to choose Telstra. In addition to NRL and AFL coverage, the telco also holds the streaming rights to Australian netball and the Hyundai A-League soccer. Telstra’s plans also come with access to data-free streaming of Apple Music. You’ll also get use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network and Fon Wi-Fi network when travelling overseas.
Worried about excess data? Telstra has now eliminated excess data charges on postpaid plans, so once you go over your plan’s data inclusion, you can keep using data but at a capped speed of 1.5Mbps. This speed is still fast enough for standard-definition video streaming.
