    The only country to announce prepaid prices is italy and it costs over $800 for the 8GB and over $900 for the 16GB. Rumoured UK prices are lower however.

    These Telstra plans are much better than expected, however the presence of Free WiFi suggests that's just to make up for crappy data rates. $100 16GB iPhone on a $80 plan, I'll go for that, but only if I get at least 1GB of data and Vodafone/Optus aren't better.
    Yep, it makes it roughly worth $2000 over two years, which isn't two bad when you think about it.

    Default Official Telstra iPhone 3G Plan & Pricing Info

    Now that it's official and outlined on this press release: http://mactalk.com.au/newsimg/tphone.pdf
    And on this Telstra website: Apple iPhone 3G - Telstra

    We can talk about pricing and plans and details and no longer have to speculate

    Awesome, now Optus and Vodafone need to be price competitive otherwise they will loose too many customers to the lure of NextG and its massive coverage.

    Good news for rural customers. The prices are great, but the plans may be terrible, so who knows. If the $100 16GB on $80 plan has at least 1GB of data, I'm all over that.

    Optus and Vodafone will be scrambling now. lol

    An employee of Optus revealed that pricing and new plans tend to be released in the new financial year (starting tomorrow), however, they have in the past released pricing plans 2 days before a product launch.

    I think both telcos will be tinkling their iPhone pricing plans now - either to make it more competitive and give it an edge over Telstra.

    It will be hard to beat FREE access to Telstra's wifi hotspots. That and the starting 24 month plan of $30 is a winner for me (and many others!)

    Same, if they offer a nice data allowance I will upgrade my current iphone to the $100 plan

    Certainly sounds positive, depending on what data comes with the plans.

    Currently I'm paying Telstra $170/month for calls and 1Gb of data for my 1st Gen iPhone, so here's hoping that the $100/month iPhone 3G plan includes a generous data allowance and I can save $70/month and get a 'free' new iPhone as a bonus.

    I'm still worried that Telstra will continue to separate the phone plan from the data allowance, and the $80 and $100 plans they quoted in the press release will require additional data packs to make them workable with the iPhone.

    Wow....gee that's smart of Telstra to get those plans out earlier than the others. Very tempted to make the switch, seeing as the 3g coverage where I work is woeful from Optus and Vodafone.

    BTW, I had an email come through on the WAMUG mailing list. One of the chaps is a Vodafone reseller, and he states that prices will be announced either tomorrow or Wednesday. Pre-registration starts July 2nd in Voda reseller stores.

    Anyone have a non-munted copy of Telstra's WIFI map? I downloaded the website one, but neither Appleworks nor Numbers could open it. And I have no intention of putting Office on here...

    Just hope they take my advice and allow the 2g model to become legit and use the same plans.
