iPhone 4 Australia – Pay as you go options.

29Jul10

In my last post I compared all the published mobile plans for iPhone 4. There are a bunch of offers for anyone prepared to be lock in for the next two years (Optus has some one year offers too).

For the last 4 years I have been locked in to two 24 month contracts. Both seemed good to start with, but both ended up with significant drawbacks that other offers didn’t have.

Mobile plans are fast moving products. I don’t want to be tied in again. So with Apple selling an unlocked handset, what pay as you go options are there?

In a previous post I predicted that carriers would be able to artificially restrict plans for iPhone 4 by limiting the availability of the micro-sim. Well, after talking to most of the carriers yesterday I was told that practically any none phone specific plans would be available for purchase, and could be enabled on a micro-sim via a sim card replacement process. The process may cost though – 30 bucks on Telstra.

If you are happy with a carrier enough to be locked in for two years, you will get better value from a contract plan. But if you want to be commitment free you do have options.

Again, check out your phone usage and work out what you need. So far from everyone I have walked through this process nobody has come close to using the amount of data that they currently pay for. Gigs of data sounds good but if you have a day job and Wifi at home you are unlikely to use it all.

TIP: Telstra to announce new pay as you go options on Aug 8th. We could see a price drop or value boost if recent changes to their broadband plans are anything to go by.
