If you 'opt' for Optus for your new iPhone 8, you can choose between picking up your device on the standard two-year My Plan Plus, or on the telco's My Plan Flex lease options. If you decide to lease, you have the choice of upgrading your iPhone after 12 months (for a $99 fee), or continuing your 24-month leasing plan.

Why buy your iPhone on Optus? 

Optus isn't the cheapest telco, but it's not the most expensive either. You tend to get pretty good value plans from Optus, especially toward the high-end where data-inclusions get generous fast. 

If you're buying an iPhone on a 24-month contract through Optus, you'll get a free subscription to Optus Sport which gives data-free live access to English Premier League and Cricket Australia matches. You'll also nab data-free music streaming through Google Play Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora.

If you decide to go for a higher-end plan, you'll also get data-free video streaming through services including Netflix, Stan, and ABC iView. Data-free video is however limited to standard definition. 

Optus customers also get a few bonuses through the Optus Perks program. These include:

  • Discounted movie tickets for Hoyts cinemas, starting at $11.50 for an adult ticket or $26 for LUX, excluding sessions after 5pm on a Saturday 
  • Discounted movie tickets for select independent cinemas
  • A three-month free trial of Spotify Premium
  • Discounted tickets to theme parks
  • Discounted tickets for "over 3000 experiences" across Australia and New Zealand, including activities such as jet boating and hot air ballooning 
  • Presale tickets for concerts and sporting events 
How do Optus iPhone plans stack up?

If you're still weighing up your options for buying a new iPhone, here are the main things to know about each of Australia's four major telcos. 

Telstra will tend to be the most expensive option, but is often regarded as having the best coverage in Australia - especially in rural areas. You'll also get a nice range of content inclusions, ranging from sports to Apple Music to a free year of Foxtel Now. 

Optus is a little bit cheaper and the data inclusions tend to be a little bit bigger, and also has a heavy focus on content. In addition to data-free Spotify, Netflix, Stan, and Google Play Music on many plans, Optus customers paying top dollar get a free subscription to Optus Sport, which includes content such as the English Premier League. 

Thanks to its massive plan shakeup, Vodafone is now the most flexible telco when it comes to buying a new iPhone. You can pay off your phone across 12, 24, or 36 months which can help bring down your monthly bill in a major way. You're also able to change your base plan on a month-to-month basis, and if you ever want to leave, you'll just pay off the remainder you owe on your phone.

Virgin Mobile tends to be the best value-option when it comes to buying a phone on a contract, and often wins on data-for-dollar. You don't get many extras like free streaming subscriptions, but Virgin is great if you just want a phone plan.
