Telstra iPhone XR Plans & Prices

Advertisement

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 now offering the new Apple smartphones in store and online, and will stock the handsets in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB sizes, all available on two-year plans.

In addition to conventional two-year contracts, Telstra also offers the opportunity to lease the new iPhone XR, and upgrade to a new deal further down the line. Whichever option you go for, data is available from 3GB monthly, up to unlimited high-speed data.

Telstra’s Postpaid Data Deals

To celebrate the new iPhones, Telstra is offering customers choosing its $129 Extra Large plan a $10 monthly credit, as well as bonus data – an extra 60GB per month. This means you’ll get a massive 120GB of data, plus your new iPhone, for as low as $119 monthly.

Customers on Medium and Large plans will also receive bonus data: an extra 10GB on the $79 Medium plan, and 20GB more on the $99 Large option.

Here are Telstra’s published plans for the iPhone XR, with links to the telco’s website for further details. These prices include the plans only – the handset repayments are an added cost. See below for full details. These are sponsored products.

Standard Telstra Plans 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. If you’re more into guitars than goals, Telstra’s plans also come with a six-month Apple Music subscription, plus data-free streaming from the service. You’ll also get use of the Telstra Air Wi-Fi network and Fon Wi-Fi when overseas.

Worried about overages? Large and Extra Large plans include unlimited ‘Peace of Mind’ data (data slowed to 1.5Mbps), but you can add this feature to lower-priced plans for an extra $10 per month. The $129 Extra Large plan also includes a $10 per month credit, lowering your monthly price to $119.

If you want all-fast data, all the time, the $199 Ultimate Unlimited plan comes with unlimited high-speed gigabytes (and is the only Australian mobile plan to offer unlimited fast data). If you opt for the Large, Extra Large, or Unlimited plans, you’ll also receive a bonus 24-month Foxtel Now starter pack subscription.

Telstra Lease Plans for the iPhone XR

The iPhone XR is also available to lease over a 24-month period. What this means is instead of paying off your phone over two years, then keeping it forever, you’re basically renting it; after 24 months of payments, you’ll need to hand your phone back to Telstra, or pay an extra ‘fair market’ price to own it.

These plans are $10 per month cheaper than the above standard payment plans, and also give you the option of upgrading your iPhone after 12 months. To do this, you’ll need to hand in your phone, and pay a $99 upgrade fee. Leasing is only available for selected devices, but it may be worth considering if you like to upgrade every year. You can combine your lease with the above two-year Telstra plans; read on for prices including your phone.
