Apple iPhone 5C

As is the case with every major phone launch, not the least an iPhone launch, the race is on among carriers to reveal their pricing plans strategically but also in enough time for those who might be switching mobile carriers to make up their mind on a new plan – EFTM has them all for you.

Telstra kicked things off on Friday night with their pre-order website going live with pricing and plans for both the 5c and 5s.  Vodafone’s pre-order site had 5c pricing on Friday and on Sunday all their plans were revealed.  As of Sunday morning we’re still waiting on Optus – but we’ll commence the spreadsheet regardless (and update with further pricing once available). Optus held off until the 11th hour, releasing their plans on Wednesday afternoon.

If you’re looking for an iPhone outright, you can also pick them up at the telco retail stores (likely only if you are an existing customer due to demand), or Apple Stores on Friday 20th from 8am.  The iPhone 5c can be pre-ordered online at Apple.com.au for delivery on the 20th.

Outright prices:

  • iPhone 4S 8GB: $529
  • iPhone 5c 16GB: $739
  • iPhone 5c 32GB: $869
  • iPhone 5s 16GB: $869
  • iPhone 5s 32GB: $999
  • iPhone 5s 64GB: $1,129

If buying on a plan over 12 or 24 months is more your thing, EFTM has pulled together all the major telco plans on this one page.

Here is a basic snapshot of every plan being offered by the carriers as we know it.  As always, check with your carrier for exact pricing before you sign up.

There doesn’t appear to be “up front” costs this time round, so we’re just looking at HANDSET / TERM (Months) / Monthly Cost (inc Handset) / Data (MB) / Calls (“value”) and I’ve left out SMS because that’s unlimited on all the plans we’ve seen so far.

I’ve got three tables – all the same data, just sorted by:
