    Ergh, pretty much the same as last time.

    Those monthly handset repayments are MASSIVE! Where'd that come from? You're paying $480 for the 3G iPhone over a 24 month plan.

    And NO FREE 3GS on ANY plan? WTF?

    So there aren't any post-paid contracts (non-cap)?

    Not yet, they're coming "later" with the pre-paid prices and the Mac version of eTax from the ATO so I don't need to load Vista to do my tax return.

    Oh and Christmas.

    australia is the only place you can get a free iphone 3gs

    in america they must pay for it and then go on a $99ish plan..

    and the total cost, as quoted by optus is 2,735.76.
    a good deal considering what you get.

    Do you guys know if these plans also include data? Or is it just your standard voice plan?

    Being jobless I'm not really look towards paying extra for data.

    And apparently they've changed from charging you every 60sec to every 30secs. It was in this ITWire review/article/thingy.

    Optus has been charging by the 30 second block since I started caring about my phone bill. Which is probably at least 5 years. All the plans include some amount of data, but you'll need to look it up. But based on the old plans at the 19, 49, 59, 79 etc, it goes like this: 100MB, 250MB, 250MB, 500MB ottomh
