It’s on for young and old for normal folks and fanboys as Optus this morning makes its play for the iPhone 4.
The carrier’s four plans range from $49 per month to $89 per month with data scoping from 1GB to 3GB. There’s no sign of the unlimited data plan which some pundits had predicted â€“ instead ‘unlimited’ applies to the call allowance for national calls and text (not overseas calls) in the top-shelf $89 package.
So what do you get for your money?
$49 per month: 1GB of data and $450 of talk and text plus an 8GB iPhone 3GS for no upfront cost; but add $8 per month over the life of the two year contract for the 16GB iPhone 4 or $15 per month for the 32GB iPhone 4.
$59 per month: 2GB of data and $550 of talk and text; the 8GB iPhone
3GS and 16GB iPhone are your for nix or stump up $10 per month (times 24) for the 32GB
$79 per month: the same 2GB of data but a motormouth-friendly $800 of talk and text and your pick of the iPhones without putting a dollar down.
$89 per month: 3GB of data on any iPhone 4 or the 8GB iPhone 3GS plus all the national calls you can make and texts you can send.
Optus will have the doors at selected stores open from midnight â€“ for more details on plans and pricing click to www.optus.com.au/iphone4pricing.
