Min cost over 24mths $1,416. Ends 24/11/19 or until stocks last.
Wow I remember watching YouTube video about this phone and dream to buy it when it was released. At this price per month I think it is still a great deal because the phone is still a really good 1 year old flagship!
Yep, still an excellent phone.
Still one of the only phones out now with everything including a headphone jack.
Seriously, never ever take 24 months contract.. too long…
Especially on a phone older than a year too. Never thought the 9 was worth the upgrade over the 8 too. Better battery, can't see much else.
"scuderiarmani" wow, long user name to type lol. Agree with mainly battery capacity increased on the Note 9, they were being cautious after the N7 pproblems.
…because that wasn't the norm until not long ago…Most people will go 2/3/4years with a device based on their personal needs and budget. 24mths is more than reasonable and unless their plans have changed, Optus has a $0 contract termination fee where you just pay out the remainder of the phone.
Ooooh yeah that's good. I'm paying $38 a month for my 30GB Optus SIM only plan. Got an S7 Edge that's dying. Trying to calculate how much the phone repayments would be out of the $59. Does it say anywhere?
i'm not interested in this because i have the S10+ but speaking to Optus chat now (so i could answer your question) it looks like device cost is more than the actual plan lol. Optus are pricing the Note9 @ $1488.
@ADGRM: Did you get response from Optus yet?
Is it not a Total of $59 per month for plan and phone payment as it says ?
"Min Total Cost $1416 over 24 Months" $59 plan + 0 upfront for phone ?
@ozhunter68: It's 1416 if you see out the plan but if you terminate your plan early, your exit fee is the handset payout which in this case is (1488/24)*Months Remaining.
24 months is fine. I would never go 36 months though.
Must admit I was shocked when I saw a reasonably low price for a phone only to learn it was 3 freaking years.
Yeah by default a lot of deals are shown for the 36 month plan, a bit misleading if you're not paying attention
Never say never 😉
I bought an S8 on a two year contract when it was close to a year old. Still use it today (about 2.5 years on) and it's only now that Samsung has stopped supporting it. 24 Months isn't that bad.
is the S8 no longer supported?
S8 is still being supported. WTH…
@ntt: It's not getting Android 10
It's not getting Android 10 is what I meant from Samsung
@richadam: oh, I wish they stop updating their craps. Every single time they update, the phone gets slower
@richadam: pretty sure thats not correct
@senectus: https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsung-galaxy-s8-to-get-andr... <—- Says maybe, It was never on any official list by samsung when Android 10 was announced.
Try getting married!
hey, I bet you're enjoying Bulma
Samsung phones have a 24 month warranty which will last for the duration of the contract. So no real risk there.
agree…. just wait for JB's new 12months deal
Was lucky to get this phone from optus with 512GB storage and 8 GB RAM on pre order when it first came out. Got it for the price of 128 GB model. Had a look at note 10 but did not feel the need at all to upgrade early. This is the best note phone samsung has ever made. 512 GB 8GB ram model is no longer available or is very hard to find. So who ever is thinking of buying this phone should buy it with eyes closed.
Yeah you could get it for $84 a month with 200gb of data when first released.
That's what I've got,added on a share sim for 10 bucks more now I don't need home NBN.
Very happy with the phone so far, contract is up in 10 months. Would recommend.
$75 p/m if you have .edu email
Spent last 3 days doing multiple chats getting iPhone 11 for daughter with ,edu email….. no longer available
Me too - got it from HN for the $91 a month.
Still working like a charm!
Still great phone , but isn’t buying 2nd hand for around $600 plus prepaid for $20-30 a lot cheaper options and contract free ?
it definitely would be a couple hundred cheaper but you will be hard pressed to find one brand new for a decent price, as well as the fact that not everyone has the money to buy a phone outright
or a refubrished one,
ive bought a refurb or two and it looked brand new, just no original boz
Would love to buy it outright.
Missed it when you can get the exynos version for less than $800 because waiting for the snap dragon version ti be around the same.
Should have bitten the bullet then
call up and find what the monthly Note9 credit is for this $59/m cap. If it works out to be cheaper than retail, order the plan and cancel once you receive the device. Termination fee is phone payout only.
Thanks, will try
no worries. check above. i contacted them and turns out the Buyout is more than the actual cap lol
Maybe if it was for a note10
Sounds cheap at $59pm but its a very basic plan only offering 30gb, break it down not worth locking yourself in for 2 years, can get similar deal outright without being locked in for 24m
$59pm x 24m = $1416
Outright $883.12 (quick search, can probably find cheaper), to match the above plan leaves $532 for sim card over two years, circle.life sim card $18 x 12m = $216 or $432 over 24m ($100 less than lock in contract over 24m but lose 10gb data), or $28pm 40GB 12m = $336 over 12m or 24m = $672, (10GB more data but $139.12 more than lock in contract), this is assuming you cant find a cheaper sim deal anywhere else
Your assuming everyone has the freedom of paying outright for a phone. It's a great deal for those that can't.
no just putting it out there to consider options, 24m is a long time for a phone thats 12m+ old
I was checking that circle.life stuff. Not unlimited calls/text like this Optus deal, or did I misread something?
@Phalaxis: Unlimited Standard National Talk & Text
@RogueWolf: Rightio. All I saw was talk time minutes and number of sms per month. Will have another look.
Its not a long time. 24 months is pretty reasonable. My wife is with an Optus 12 month sim with a $4/month discount and is paying $31/month for it. I cant seem to find a plan as cheap as that with all the inclusions she gets (int calls, Optus sport and apple music). Even Optus dont have the $35/month 30GB plan anymore…its now $49. So the assumption that you're going to be paying less in the future is a bit optimistic (unless you have a crystal ball, in which case, can I have a go of it?).
If you can't spare 800 for a purchase, maybe you should be considering cheaper phones? Nobody needs this phone…
$800 upfront is very different to $59 per month….
So people that don't buy phones outright should consider cheaper phones?
@Phalaxis: You're paying for it either way. If you can't spare a sum like $800 (not very much in the scheme of things) now, you can't spare it over 24 months either.
@jrowls: $800 might not be a lot of money to YOU but I'd say for a lot people that it is.
Just because someone doesn't buy a phone outright doesn't mean they can't make a monthly payment. Being able to pay a set monthly amount is very convenient for most.
@Phalaxis: It IS a lot of money for me, that's why I wouldn't spend it on a phone. I can't afford it now, I can't afford it over 24 months. Just because a monthly payment seems more affordable doesn't mean the amount shrinks.
It's really not hard to comprehend, it's a zero interest loan. If you need a loan to purchase something other than a house, you can't afford that something.
I get your point but I think if you can't afford the phone outright you shouldn't be looking at it. Buying this for $800 odd and doing 2 B2B 12 month Port in Telstra plans with inevitable gift cards is infinitely better imo.
I didn't realise there was so many financial experts here. Just because someone can't front up for an outright phone shouldn't disadvantage them from paying it off via a contract.
@Phalaxis: Would explain why Australians are in a mountain of debt
Glad someone's on the same page as me. Australians are atrocious at living within their means. Gotta have the car loan, phone loan, MacBook loan, two home loans, afterpay this and that. Bordering on ridiculous.
I know we are on OzBargain but you can recognise a deal without being a mindless consumer.
@jrowls: Exactly :)
I know a 17yo who works several hours a week at McDonalds and just signed up for a 2 year plan for an iPhone 11.
I saved my money, also working at Maccas and bought a house not long after my 18th… Albeit 18 years ago but the point stands.
One could argue that, under such circumstances, this contract would be a risky commitment.
Why? Because someone can't afford or isn't willing to pay for a phone outright? I've been doing phone contracts for years. Never missed a payment. For me it's the convenice factor tbh
@Phalaxis: You said "freedom of paying outright", not convenience. If you don't have the freedom to pay for the phone now, how can you be confident you will have the freedom to make the repayments in 20 months from now?
@Phalaxis: Would you call $5400 for the 3 year Plan on a Galaxy Fold a wise idea?
@scuderiarmani: Personally I have no interest in that phone, but if someone wants to get it that's their choice.
The only benefit to your method is not being locked in for 24 months, but for most people getting a new phone, they will not plan to upgrade within 24 months, and 30 gigs is plenty as long as you aren't a power user. You are also getting an inferior network as Optus is a close 2nd to Telstra in coverage.
SOOOO your maths pretty much pointed out how good of a DEAL this is and nothing comes close haha nice one
Is this 5G?
Flybuys members get 17,000 points ($85). If you are subscribed for offers, check your email
unfortunately it's targeted. would have made this deal more attractive.
I have only 1 month left on my previous contract and would like to get this plan. Does anyone know if Optus will allow me to add the 1 month on top of the 24 months?
Don't think they'd do that, but they might waive an payments remaining on your old contract.
They'll waive it for you to upgrade to a new 24M plan
I have the same thing like you, contract end in December. MOst of the case they will waive your remaining when it's 1 or 2 months and sign new contract with you. Vodafone even waive for your last 2 months even if you don't sign new contract with you, but this was what a vodafone man on the phone told me, you don't have to take my word
"ntt" Even if you have a contract with a plan + phone package bundled say $65 pm Vodafone was going
to let you off/waive the last two months totaling $130? Sounds too good to be true for any Telco!
that's what I remember when I was on $40 plan 3 years ago.
Tell them that you’re gonna sign another contract for 24 months then they’ll waive it down for you. So you won’t have to pay for the last month
Would you still need to make the remaining phone payments if there were any?
no international minutes.. signed few years back.. $ 59 plan.. had 150 mins international call included..
Currently have a number on optus. What is easiest way to port out and back in to optus nowadays to become eligible for deals for new service?
Get this sim https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/prepaid-mobiles/fre.... Port in and out the same day. But ask Optus first how long you need to be off Optus to be eligible to sign for this
Do a live chat and try to persuade them, they may play ball and do you a deal, depending on who you talk to
Just been thru 3 days of live chat looking to upgrade out of contract plan to a iPhone 11 plan. Best retention could offer was $10 per month on max size $125 plan.
Compared to port out numbers and port back to receive 3/12 free plan fees plus 50% of plan fees on sim only plans
Ported out 2 numbers (woolies $5 sims) and ported back in within the day. 3/12 plan free plus 50% off the 80gb sim plan
Wore myself out trying the ‘I’m a loyal customer’ 7 plans with Optus plea= no joy!!! Much easier to port out and in
I don’t think it’s a good deal. $59x24=$1416 and the phone itself is about $800 so the plan with 30gb data comes down to ~$25 a month. You could get a cheaper plan actually. Any of those companies using Optus network such as catchconnect or circles.life
$25 for 30GB is fine..
Not sold on the phone itself though :)
If you value Optus sport at $14.99 a month like they do then it's $10 month for 30gb.
Optus is totally fine
After switching to Telstra my wife and I actually think that Optus had better coverage and less dropouts. Going back to Optus once this pixel 2 contract ends next month
Note10 is $974.35 outright through EPP and they offer financing up to 24 months with no interest.
Exactly, absolutely no need to go on a handset plan. Even credit cards are better alternatives than plans.
And what if you don't have a credit card?
You are either not old enough or not responsible enough.
@scuderiarmani: Third reason, some people don't want to own a credit card.
@Phalaxis: But they want a 2018 flagship phone?
What if you are not part of epp?
Are there any other way to get it?
Employee Purchase Portal. Certainly not something available to everyone.
Are your first 3 months free? I couldn't see which plans were eligible for this.
