Just surfing the VF website and noticed on iPhone $40 the handset cost is $499. Termaination fee for 0-6months for iPhone $40 plan is $350.

Can't be true can it?

$499+$350 termination = $849

Outright iPhone = $979

So (as far as I can tell) its $130 cheaper getting an iPhone and then cancelling it..

but you may have 1 months minimum so maybe $90 cheaper.

Thanks

Not to forget, all termination fees are GST exclusive, so it's really $350 + GST, or $393.75.

Oops my bad. iPhone plans are different, apparently. I was looking at You Choose, Base, and Mobile broadband early termination charges. So I guess it is worthwhile to hook it up on a plan, and then pull out of the contract.
