Telstra Day March deals

This Telstra Day has the usual run of 5G smartphones to pick from, as well as a slew of smaller deals.

To give an idea of the prices involved, we've chucked each phone onto a 36-month repayment with the $55 Small Upfront Mobile Plan that gives 40GB of data a month.

Your minimum total cost is what you'll pay if you choose to leave Telstra after a month (this includes paying the handset off in full).
