Vodafone announces iPhone 3G pricing for Australia

Handset to launch 11 July

Vodafone Australia today announced their range of plans for the iPhone 3G, which will be launched on 11 July.

The plans were published on July 9, but were then removed from Vodafone's Web site less than 20 minutes later. The plans unveiled today are largely the same, with the option of paying the handset off monthly the only change from the original plans.

"The iPhone 3G is designed for customers who want to download mobile music and entertainment, as well as enjoy mobile email, so we've created caps that realistically cater for that type of data usage", said Russell Hewitt, CEO of Vodafone Australia. "Vodafone is being straight-up with customers by telling them exactly what's included within our iPhone 3G caps and how much it costs."

The cheapest Vodafone iPhone plan is $69 per month, with an additional monthly cost of $12.88 for the 16GB iPhone 3G, as well as an up-front cost of $309. This plan includes $310 worth of calls and text, but only 250MB of data.

Optus and Telstra have already announced their iPhone packages.

Vodafone will begin inviting pre-registered customers to sign on to a 24-month contract and purchase an iPhone 3G from a reserved allocation of stock. "Pre-registration demand for the iPhone 3G has been incredible", said Hewitt.

Full pricing details including up-front costs and monthly handset repayments are available at http://www.vodafone.com.au/iphone.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
