Optus iPhone 3GS plans

Australian carrier Optus has let slip the details of new iPhone subscription options, meant to coincide with the release of the 3GS, a leak claims. The carrier's "yes" cap plans should now range from $19 to $79 a month, and by default provide between 100MB and 1GB of data; missing is a $29 option, which will come sometime after launch if at all. Varying payments may be necessary based on the choice of iPhone model, and the length of a contract, spanning one to two years.

Aside from bundled data, the plans have also been revised to include Visual Voicemail service for free. New Timeless plans should become available in mid-July, while business plans should arrive in August. Three add-on packs are being made available, beginning with "yes" Time, which costs an extra $10 per month but allows free calling to other Optus cellphones between 8PM and 12AM, within a 20-minute limit. The $35 Optus2Optus Unlimited option covers any Optus phone at any time of day, without a minute ceiling.

The Optus Broadband Unlimited pack provides unlimited data for $50 per month. It is also one of the few methods of enabling tethering, which is not allowed within the regular "yes" plans. Short of Broadband Unlimited, subscribers will have to pick a Mobile Internet Pack to enable a tethered connection.
