iPhone SE plans
The more budget-friendly iPhone SE can be paid for in instalments with a mobile plan from Telstra, Vodafone, and Optus.

Even though the iPhone SE has the lowest retail price among modern iPhones, you can make it a little more affordable by pairing it with a mobile plan from one of the three networks and paying it off over time. This can reduce monthly instalments for the handset to as little as $19 per month, depending on the provider.
Compare Telstra iPhone SE plans
As usual, Telstra has a bevy of extra features to go along with its premium prices. You'll be able to share data between up to 10 devices on the same account, continue browsing at a reduced speed of 1.5Mbps after breaking your data limit, and get access to data-free Apple Music streaming and a few sports.
Also, you'll get 5G access on Telstra's 5G mobile network on some plans with a suitable handset.
Compare Vodafone iPhone SE plans
Vodafone sets itself apart with its "unlimited" mobile data - once you've exhausted your data limit, you'll still be able to browse at a reduced speed of 2 - 25Mbps, depending on your plan. There are also a few international inclusions on various plans.
While Vodafone currently has the smallest 5G network, you can access it so long as you have a 5G-capable handset and are in a covered area.
Compare Optus iPhone SE plans
Regardless of whether you've purchased a phone or not, Optus postpaid plans come with a handful of useful features. All plans on the same account can share their data, and once you've exceeded your monthly data limit you can stay online at a reduced speed of 1.5Mbps. International talk and text to certain countries are included on a number of plans, too.
Finally, you'll get 5G network access so long as you have a capable phone and live somewhere that 5G coverage is available.
