Vodafone iPhone Plans & Prices

Advertisement

Vodafone is the third major telco in Australia, and has shaken up the industry in the way it tackles phone plans, including all-new plans for the iPhone XS and XR.

Vodafone has separated the phone from the plan; now, the only thing you are locked into is the phone repayment, meaning you can change plans month to month. Customers then have the choice of a 36, 24 or 12 month contract, with the former easing the burden of expensive phone plans over three years instead of two. Read on to find out what you can get in an iPhone plan with Vodafone.

Vodafone iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro & iPhone 11 Pro Max plans

Vodafone does stock a range of Apple iPhones bundled with a phone plan, so it is to be expected that Vodafone will be stocking the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max. While Vodafone has not released its plans yet, we do know how much these devices will cost outright. If Vodafone is your telco of choice, you’ll be able to select your device and payment period of 12, 24 or 36 months. While your monthly device payment will differ dependng on which payment period you select, the overall cost is the same across 12, 24 and 36 months. You’ll then need to bundle your device of choice with a postpaid Vodafone plan, with plan prices starting at $35 and going up to $65 per month.

Vodafone iPhone X Plans

Vodafone had previously offered the iPhone X, however as the smartphone was discontinued, there are no longer stocks available through the telco. If you’re dedicated to an iPhone X with a Vodafone plan, you’ll need to purchase the device outright (from a retailer or second hand if stocks are still available) and bundle with a SIM-only plan.

Vodafone iPhone 8 Plus Plans

  • 64GB 12 month plans from $128 ($35 plan + $93 phone payment)
  • 64GB 24 month plans from $81.50 ($35 plan + $46.50 phone payment)
  • 64GB 36 month plans from $66 ($35 plan + $31 phone payment)

As the iPhone 8 Plus is an older device, you’ll only be able to pick up a 64GB model from Vodafone. Prices for the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus start at under $70 a month. Users can stick with a traditional data tier on the Vodafone’s Red plans, or sign up for unlimited 1.5Mbps data on the Red Plus options.

Vodafone has really ramped up the competition in the iPhone 8 space with some of the cheapest plans going around, but be aware to pay the lowest monthly price you will probably have to stick around for three years. A positive, however, is the fact you can change your plan as your needs change.

Vodafone iPhone 8 Plans

  • 64GB 12 month plans from $116 ($35 plan + $81 phone payment)
  • 64GB 24 month plans from $75.50 ($35 plan + $40.50 phone payment)
  • 64GB 36 month plans from $62 ($35 plan + $27 phone payment)

If you can’t be bothered with such a large screen as featured on the 8 Plus, Vodafone has some iPhone 8 plans that are relatively cheap if bundled over three years. Prices start at under $70, making them some of the most affordable iPhone 8 plans on the market on a 36-month contract. Like with the 8 Plus, you’ll only be able to pick up a 64GB model from Vodafone.

Once again, customers will have to sign up for three years if they want the absolute cheapest prices on offer. Alternatively, if you can afford the $110+ monthly fee over 12 months, you could be out of your contract sooner, and enjoying your iPhone debt-free.

Vodafone iPhone 7 & 7 Plus Plans

As both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are older devices, you can no longer pick up either of these phones from Vodafone.

Vodafone iPhone 6 & 6S Plus Plans

As with the 7 and 7 Plus, the iPhone 6 and 6S range is no longer available from Vodafone.

Should I get a Vodafone iPhone plan?

Vodafone is the third major telco in Australia, offering an array of iPhone plans with large amounts of data and other goodies up for grabs. Vodafone also features some of the cheapest plans out there, with the proviso that you sign up for three years. 24 month plans are on par, and for those who don’t like contracts, paying more per month over 12 months may work out to be more ideal. In any case, there are many iPhone plans from Vodafone out there, it’s all a matter of choosing the one that’s right for you.
