more iPhone 3G news
To best of my knowledge, Australia is the only country with most carriers that sells iPhone 3G in the world. Last week, Virgin Mobile joined Vodafone, Optus, and Telstra to sell iPhone 3G, making the total number of carriers authorised to sell iPhone to be four (4). Three (Hutchison 3G Australia Pty Ltd) still can't get the deal with Apple after asking Three users to beg Apple, instead they released new plans for iPhone BYO.
Virgin Mobile's iPhone plans are available at $70/mo (for 8GB iPhone 3G) and $100/mo (for 16GB iPhone 3G) on 24 months contract without any upfront costs. the $70 plan includes $520 call credit and 1GB data; the $100 plan includes same $520 call credit and a massive 5GB data allowance.
Strictly speaking, Virgin Mobile uses Optus's network.
3's new plan for iPhone BYO
iPhone 3G is still very limited in stock across Australia. It seems like it is still not that easy to get a 16GB prepaid iPhone 3G from Optus outlets. Lucky that I got my iPhone 3G on the first of sale.
I am with Vodafone, although only comes with 250MB data allowance on my plan, I believe it is sufficient for me and for most people. How many of you will use that much of internet on your iPhone 3G after the first month or two?
Meanwhile, Apple released Software 2.0.1 for iPhone and iPod touch today.
Again, I highly recommend getting invisibleSHIELD for your iPhone 3G, iPhone, iPod touch and all your gadgets to prevent ugly scratches. invisibleSHIELD does not add the usual bulkiness (as in other skins/cases) to your gadgets.
