The iPhone 11 was released back in September 2019. While it's no longer the newest iPhone on the block (you can check out plans for the iPhone 12 here), it's still a popular model thanks to its more affordable price. Optus, Telstra and Vodafone are all selling the new iPhone 11 and its comrade models with their various phone plans, with different incentives and deals to draw you in.

No matter which telco you go with, the phone itself is going to cost the same. It's the details of the plans that will differ.

Which provider should I get an iPhone 11 plan with?

While the cost of your iPhone overall will be the same no matter which plan you pick, the plans and their features are by no means identical. We've broken down the main draw of each potential provider.

Telstra iPhone plans

Telstra offers a choice of 12 or 24-month contracts for mobile plans that range from 40GB for $55 monthly to 180GB for $115 monthly (these prices don't include the cost of the phone). If you exceed your data limit, you'll actually get unlimited data at no extra charge, but it will be speed capped at 1.5Mbps.

Telstra has also thrown in a $100 discount when you buy the iPhone 11 on a plan, plus data sharing between plans on the same account and data-free streaming of Apple Music.

Optus iPhone plans

Optus offers its iPhone 11 plans with a 12, 24, or 36-month contract, which start at 10GB for $39 monthly and go all the way up to 500GB for $119 monthly. All plans grant you access to the Premier League streaming with Optus Sports.

If you go for a higher-end plan, you'll get international talk and text inclusions to 35 overseas destinations. Optus also runs its own rewards program, Optus Perks, which you can register for with an Optus mobile account.

Vodafone iPhone plans

Like Optus, Vodafone allows you to snatch up an iPhone 11 on a 12, 24, or 36-month contract with one of its Infinite plans. These span from 10GB for $40 to 150GB for $120 monthly. After you pass your cap, you'll get unlimited data, but at a reduced download speed from 2- 25Mbps depending on your plan.

Vodafone's plans are quite simple and don't offer all the fancy extras and inclusions of the other two big providers. Vodafone has discounts for customers aged 25 and under on their plans.

Should I get an iPhone on a 24 or 36-month plan?

The most important thing to remember when debating between contract lengths is that the overall price of the phone doesn't change: it will cost exactly as much on any length contract as it would to simply buy it outright.

There are a few possible downsides to a longer phone contract, depending on what type of phone user you are and which provider you go with. While a longer contract may cost you less per month, you'll be unable to switch to a potentially cheaper SIM-only plan for as long as the contract persists. You also may be the kind of person who wants a new phone every couple of years, which means tying yourself to a 36-month contract could be a problem.

In the end, though, it's not too huge a difference, since with any of the three providers you can simply cancel your contract at any time and only have to pay out the remaining value of the handset, regardless of the contract. Only opt for a 36-month plan if you think that those extra 12 months of paying it out are a solid financial move for you.
