To the Aussies out there, how will you go about getting your iphone 6 on launch?

When the iphone 5 was announced I renewed my telstra contract and pre ordered the phone online, then recieved it on the day it was released. Hoping they have the are system this year.

I have a two-year with Telstra, so I always get the *S free but buy the first release outright and then just sell my other device to get some of the money back. I'm hoping they do a pre-order so I can just buy outright this year

Outright is the best way. And then get a $20 plan such as TPG. No lock in contracts and you can switch and choose your plan as you please.

So in other words your post has no purpose here. What does not caring about unlocked or locked and being with Apple for 20 + years have to do with this thread.

No way i'd spend a grand on a phone then go with TPG who doesnt offer 4G

Contract with Telstra. Switching away from Optus.

Well it's a good time to switch to Telstra, read today that they will match Optus's early exit fee subsidy but also wave the $10/m "new phone feeling" fee for upgrading ever 12m as opposed to 24m

Living in rural qld, 4G is nothing but a distant future for me. Having said that, I couldn't imagine i'd be constantly downloading large enough files to warrant a faster connection on my iPhone. Considering videos i play off my iPhone while on 3G very rarely, if ever have to pause for buffer...
