Optus only enjoyed a couple of hours of having its iPhone 4S contract plans on the market before Vodafone also put its plans online. The first thing to notice? While Vodafone has frequently offered 12-month plans in the past, it is sticking strictly to 24-month plans this time around.
Given likely stock shortages on the release date of October 14, that’s not entirely surprising; Vodafone is also not predicting any delivery dates on its site, and is emphasising online ordering and delivery. The phones are being offered on both its Infinite and Cap plans; I suspect more people will go for the former, especially as it no longer has a tethering penalty.

The pricing isn’t massively different overall to that from Optus, and as usual . We await Telstra’s pricing with interest (and promise a very large spreadsheet with all three, plus other potential contenders such as Virgin Mobile and Crazy John’s, when that happens).
