Telstra offers 12 month contracts for iPhone 4


We got the following info from Telstra Mobile PR Peter Symons when we asked whether Telstra would allow customers to purchase the iPhone 4 on a 12 month contract — after all with a new iPhone coming out every year why lock yourself in for two years?

Yes Telstra customers can purchase iPhone 4 on one of our plans and pay the handset off over 12 months. There is no handset subsidy associated with this option.

For example:

  • Customers can purchase the 16GB iPhone 4 on the $79 plan over 12 months with monthly repayments of $151 ($79 + $72)
  • Customers can purchase the 32GB iPhone 4 on the $79 plan over 12 months with monthly repayments of $163 each month ($79 + $84)

Alternatively iPhone 4 will be available to purchase outright for existing Telstra customers:

16GB — RRP $864
32GB — RRP $1008
