Here's Optus's Plan Pricing For The iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus

Optus's contract plan pricing for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are out, just as pre-orders open. I think is an under-handed tactic to force you to jump onto a pre-order without carefully considering it, but in any case, here they are.

Virgin's cheapest iPhone 8 will cost you $65 a month over 24 months with 1GB of data on the $40 plan, while the cheapest iPhone 8 Plus is $70 a month over the same period.

    One thing to note with these plans is that you are leasing the phone. You have to give it back in good working order after your contract ends.

    They don't list any plans where you own the phone after two years yet... it is normally about $10 more per month.

      Huh? Since when? Ive had probably 8 phones on contract and never had this happen. Maybe in America this happens but over 24 months in Australia you pay the phone off and own it by the end date.

        Nope. They are a relatively new plan model that most providers are offering now. I know with Telstra it is called a swap plan and you can trade in your phone after 18 months instead of 2 years and they will waive the remainder of the plan and put you on a new one..

    Yea it's a new thing from Optus... if you look at the bottom of each package, it says "lease Now" instead of "buy now" on their website they explain it better. It's a pretty shitty deal imo.

      Goddamn. My bad its only ever been paying off prior to this. Thats a shitty deal then imho.
