If you buy the iPhone outright you can put it on a $20 You Choose plan and a $30 data plan. However, from what I gather the data plan is not mandatory. So what I want to know: if you you put it just on a You Choose plan and forget about the data plan then are you completely locked out from using data? (except wifi ofcourse) Or can you still use data at the casual rate?
Ok I've just popped down to the Queen Street store (where there are currently about 5 people already queing) and talked to the rep who stated that indeed you can buy the iPhone outright and put it on a $20 plan BUT without a data plan you will be locked out entirely from using data (no casual data, no nothing, except for wifi ofcourse).
From what has been announced so far it appears that Vodafone have configured theit network to only will only allow this APN to be used with a data plan attached to the MSISDN - ie it won't work with the new $1 per day plans whether you are on account or prepay.
