This Is The Optus iPhone 5 Pricing

We've all been waiting with bated breath to get the iPhone 5 pricing. Will it be more expensive? Will it be cheaper? Optus has taken the plunge first and put its pricing online. Take a look.

The 16GB version of the iPhone 5 starts on a $30 Optus Plan which gets you 200MB of included data and $200 of included talk and text on a 24 month contract. The handset will set you back an additional $18 per month on that plan.

Optus will give you the 16GB for $0 for 24 months on its $80 Optus Plan which includes 2GB of data and $850 of talk and text on a 24 month contract. You'll get the 32GB for $0 on the $89 Timeless plan, while the 64GB is $0 for 24 months on the $129 Timeless plan only.

As far as the carriers lower plans go, repayments increase in $4 and $5 increments. That is, you'll pay $4 extra per month for the 32GB than the 16GB, and you'll pay $5 extra per month on top of the 32GB for the 64GB.

Here's the 16GB pricing for reference:

Optus is a 4G carrier so all those prices get you 4G speeds, too.

    what is the subsidy then, based on rrp?

    200mb data!?

    This ain't Telstra!

    Optus $1440 vs Kogan $699 + Liveconnected $11.99 x 24 = $986.76.
    So it's a surcharge of $453, not a subsidy

      it is a subsidy, what is the payment over the normal plan equivalent for the phone?

      That's my plan, although less sure of the Kogan option. That $12 LiveConnected plan is so damn good.

      but no nano sim yet at liveconnected or any other MVNOS's! except virgin!

        Doesn't Iphone 5 use MicroSim ... not a nano sim... not sure what's you point ?

          Point is the iPhone 5 uses a nanosim.
