    Telstra will also offer the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on lease terms if you want marginally lower monthly repayments. The flipside there, as we've discussed before, is that you don't end up owning the handset at the end of the lease term, which means you could end up spending more than the plan cost if repairs are required at the end of the leasing period.

    Here's Telstra's full lease pricing for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus:

    Telstra's plans are typically higher priced than those of its competitors, but the carrier does bundle in a considerable number of extras, including data-free streaming of Apple Music, free access to the Telstra Air network, 200GB of OneDrive storage and free mobile subscriptions to NRL, AFL and Netball Australia streams with all data usage included for those sports packages.

    Telstra also runs a generous "Thanks" service with lower-cost movie tickets, early pre-sales for significant concert acts and discounted entry tickets for AFL, NRL and netball games.
