Optus enters the iPhone 4 fray with four plans, including a 'free' (zero upfront) 16GB iPhone 4 with 2GB of data for just $59 per month.
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 – 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
iPhone 4.$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.
