    $1656 and you don't get to keep the phone… Don't think it's much of a deal.

    •  

      If you’re already paying a similar amount for 100gb it might nake sense.

      •  

        Why would you be paying a similar amount for 100GB????

        And, if by the off chance you were, it's $10/month more to keep it. ????

          why wouldn't you be churning through kogan or catch cheap data sims in your dual sim china droid and paying much less.??

      Perfectly fine here….

      Thats what I thought, now im paying $105/m with xs max payments with 200gb data and use it for my home broadband. Apart from latency, seems as good as nbn to me, certainly not bad like it used to be

        Same with me. Great way to boost your speeds and save money as you can share data with Optus across services. So you get the $20 data sim but get a $10 discount for a second new service.

      Optus is way better in my area now, get around 140 down 30 up. On Telstra I get a max of 10-15 down & up. Was the other way around a few years ago.

    18 yr old girl at work talked abt getting an iphone, said she was gonna lease it cause its cheaper. I told her to buy it on the plan instead, cause apple keep their value and you can resell it later…she leased it and 2 months later she regrets not getting the buying plan…SMH, young and dumb.

      18yr old should consider cheap android phone until 18yr old can afford the dollars flagships are asking. But 18yr old also gotta flex.

        Junk values in a junk culture that doesn't even teach it's young the most basic things about handling money so that they may be exploited. But of course hijacking the education of every child to pointlessly learn computer code so that Googbook's labour costs go down is a great idea.

          Learning to code is not pointless, it teaches you to work through problems. Something a lot of young people come out of school unable to do.

    Don’t forget 10% off for new sign ups through HN.. wouldn’t go lease though.. outright is best value for money

    Outright == $240 more, at the end of the contract will be worth ~$400 if its in good nick. I'd rather hang onto the extra $160 at the end of it thanks

    •  

      I’m talking buy phone outright on sale or gumtree/fb store etc, then go on a sim only plan, 100gb majority won’t need plenty cheap sim
      Plans around

    Lease is the new trickery these telco companies are practising. The lower monthly orice attract the buyers but the phone remains telcos property till the last of the contract at the same time rates of other plans go up!

    • +1 vote

      Not just til the last of the contract, phone remains telcos property forever, unless you pay more.

  •  

    What happens after the 2 years of leasing, do they replace the phone with a new model or do you just keep using the old rented one?

    •  

      Once the 2 years is up you have to give the phone back and sign up for a new contract…
      If you don't give it back or you give it back damaged in some way, they bill you (probably alot)

    These lease plans are such bad value for money. Customer assumes all risk, must replace phone if list or damaged. $15 monthly insurance a must!

    Worst though it's you don't get to keep the phone. For a paltry $240 savings you end up with nothing

      Marketing tools at there best, targeted at the people who don't understand how a lease works. Would be funny to know how many people have tried to flogg a lease phone at cashies.
