After reading it in the dom post this morning, i confirmed that Telsta has released their pricing for the new iPhone
While this is not NZ (nor even vodafone au) prices I hope this is an indication of the prices. (All prices below are Australian)
" The new 8GB iPhone will be available with Telstra for $279 upfront on a two-year contract at $30 per month, or for free on the carrier's $80 per month plan. The 16GB model will be available for $399 on a $30 per month contract or included for free with a $100 per month contract. The company did not release any further information about data charges, only adding that each plan included free Wi-Fi access at Telstra hotspots. "
Hopefully, we are similar but the kicker will be the data charges.
