Apologies if this has been covered in a FAQ somewhere, but does anyone know if Telstra or Optus are doing 12 month contracts?

I seem to remember last year they didn't advertise 12 month deals, but you could get one if you asked for one. I'm guessing this year they're completely off the table though as they seem to offer the best value and no one has really mentioned their plans to go with one?

It has been posted. Optus are and that's all. All others are 24.

You can have a 12 month repayment on a 12 month Telstra Cap.

Using the $49 cap and a 16GB iPhone 4 as an example, you receive a $20 credit per month off the monthly repayment amount ($850 over 12 months is ~$70 per month). You end up paying $49 - $20 + $70 = $99 per month for 12 months.

Sorry if I'm being retarded - but how does this work exactly?
Was gonna go for the optus $59 12month plan ($100 a month) but this might be better - less data but better coverage

Connect to a 12 month Next G Member $49 Cap Plan.
Each month you pay $49 for your plan (calls + data).
Each month you also receive a $20 "Member Credit"
Divide the outright cost of the iPhone by 12 and you have 12 interest free monthly repayments.
Add the 12 repayments to your plan, minus your credit.

apologies again (i think my brain has melted with all these plans) - does this mean you are buying the iphone outright?

I just got off the phone with Optus.

Although my last two iPhones have been on 12-month plans and i'm currently out of contract, the sales person went away and checked and said that they are no longer offering iPhones on 12-month plans at Optus... looks like i'll be buying outright and switching to Telstra.

I have had 12 month plans with Optus for 3G and 3GS and I just signed up again to Optus $79 cap over 12 months.
$575 was what I have to pay. I can pay it over 12 months on top of my plan or a one off payment of $575

I always make the one off payment on my first bill.

So Optus still do 12 month contracts
