    Hey all,

    Just a question for those that have a Iphone
    Its been on the cards lately to get one, but was wondering what plan everyone is on?
    i'm on a $79 optus cap atm, but will i need more of a data plan, to do the net thing etc to cater for it?

    there are no iPhone plans in Australia. Everyone that is using an iphone here imported from America and hacked the phone in order to use it. iPhones are not due to oficially hit our shores few a few months.

    He is asking what plans people are using them on over here, not whether you can buy an "iPhone plan".

    if you want a data plan you cant beat 3 with x series atm.

    ironically, 3 is the only network you can't use the iphone on.

    next gen iphone is rumoured to be 3G compatible, and will be released mid - late june, personally i'll be waiting for that.

    Yeh, you are right, thats exactly what i was asking

    I was looking at the hiptop plan, unlimited data, sms, mms etc for $30 a month. Only downfall is the price of phone calls

    Either that or i know optus has a $79 blackberry cap plan - unlimited internet browsing, blackberry email + $300 worth of calls, but im guessing you can only use it for blackberries. hopefully not

    both of those plans work only with their respective handsets.

    iPhone is GPRS only so the NextG won't work with it.

    Yeah but you'll have to buy a 3G enabled iPhone which means that if you adopted the iPhone too early then no 3G :tongue:

    No the current iPhone is EDGE, it only falls back to GPRS if your carrier doesn't support it. 3G > EDGE > GPRS.
