Aussie iPhone users expected to bend overMikey 8 comments
Holy Crap! I know Telstra have always tried to milk us Aussie consumers for every last cent they can, but the revelation of the new Australian iPhone plans is really taking the p*ss even for them.
Clearly trying to capitalise on the popularity of the iPhone, it looks as if Telstra have created the pricing plan on the 'people have more dollars than sense' mantra - which is as stupid as it sounds.
Have a look at this (leaked) ridiculous chart:
While the data is reasonably generous, the included phone calls is where things are ludicrous. The most included phone calls is a miserable $UA90 worth, and that will cost you a whopping $219/month. Just to give you a rough comparison, I pay $AU60 per month for my yummy Nokia N95 and that includes $AU300 worth of calls and data per month.
The moral here is that when the iPhone hits Aussie shores, it is surely only for people with too much disposable income.
