    $39? We'll likely get 10MB data included in that plan with each additional MB charged at $4.95. I'm still skeptical until we get word from Optus or Vodafone directly. A price means nothing without the length of the contract and the included data/airtime/SMS etc.

    Doesn't actually say anything and half of it is false.

    Gizmodo AU have some supposedly leaked details from Optus:

    iPhone 8GB $220
    iPhone 16GB $330

    Both are required to be on a plan, no word on pre-pay or outright purchases.

    $79 Cap plan 24 months
    1GB data
    $300 worth of calls/SMS etc.

    $99 Cap plan 24 months
    3GB data
    $400 worth of calls/SMS etc.

    Nothing from Voda but Optus has shown it's not willing to be aggressive - bloody typical.

    Bummer too pricey for me. I'll have to wait out my optus deposit refund. Hopefully there's an option to buy it outright that's reasonable and/or vodafone come to the party with better deals.

    it seems like optus is waiting for voda, and voda is waiting for optus :(

    neither wants to be the first to release details of their plans, cause they feel their competitor will undercut them?

    optus/voda hurry up and release your plans!

    I've got no choice - it has to Optus.

    Vodafone have zero 3G coverage in the Illawarra whilst Optus have pretty much close to 100%.

    hopefully they have a $49, that would be perfect with vodafone :D
    but then again we do have to think about data, so do you guys think these are special plans that are made FOR the iPhone which include data in them?

    "Zero 3G coverage" seems to be Vodafone's global strategy :rolleyes:

    For what it's worth, they haven't announced any pricing over here either, although they've confirmed that there will be a prepay option.
