    I am so nervous (fumbles gold envelope) OK "And The Winner for the most complicated and confusing iphone plan goes to...


    OPTUS. The Australian Telco with a rich history of confusing Yes Plans and Turbo this and that.

    Round of wild applause.

    And their winning plans are shown in the links below. Just imagine on June 11th as 1000's of people rush into the optus store eager for iphones and they have to make a quick decision on what plan to go for before someone buys the iphone they want. Its going to be chaos. with lots of "Run The past me again, so what does the Turbo Saver Cap do exactly"

    Personally I wouldn't have a clue as I am use to Three which doesn't even have a flag fall on the plan I'm on.

    GIVE ME SIMPLE STUFF I CAN UNDERSTAND!!!

    I thought it was just me! It beats me too.

    I can't make head or tail of it.

    Over at Mactalk there is a thread over 30 pages long trying to make sense of it.

    Just what are Optus doing, it would take a Chartered Accountant and Differential Calculus to decipher it.

    Yes Plans and Yes Cap Plans, pre paid Post Paid, Yes Time,, how should I know how many MB I need a month, Iv'e never had an iphone. ahhhhhhhhhhhh .Just what does it mean???

    It says you can unlock for $80 (but its surrounded by very ambiguous language as well) so you should be able to buy it from optus on pre paid and go to Three-But, hey I'm not qualified in Optus plans though, go ask your accountant and a lawyer.

    Glad i'm in the UK with O2. Simple plan, easy to understand.
    Just had a look at that Optus one and I can't understand it

    Yeah the UK O2 plan really is great. I feel happy were getting something cheaper than the rest of the world for once.

    I don't get why people are confused. They seem pretty simple to me.

    You pay a certain amount per month and you get a certain amount of credit to spend on calls/sms and a certain amount of data.

    What's so confusing?
