From $949 iPhone 13 128gb ($400 discount) when on Vodafone 12/24/36 month postpaid contract

160

Usually networks have been asking for 24 or even 36 month contracts to get the discount offer. In this case it makes the iPhone 13 cheaper than the 13 Mini and if your trading in a iPhone via the Vodafone's tradeup service you may save even more. I recommend the 12 month offer myself and you get the $400 off pro-rata each month's repayments

Reasons to start thinking of Vodafone/TPG Group is they have done a deal & will soon have a roaming on Telstra for awesome coverage, you get wifi-calling and it might be an idea to lock in a good plan now as Telstra has gone to indexing plans to CPI!

NOTE: Vodafones offer is $50 better value than Telstra's and the plans are better value too, so Vodafone for the win!

  • So regardless the plan u got $400 off the top for staying 12 month?

    • Yes, its pro-rata off that months handset cost - months discount - additional trade-in offer from the app.

      So in my case, the iPhone 13 128gb is $1349-400/12 months or $78.91 a month or $949, and then trade-in offer from the Vodafone app for the '12 Pro Max' is $750 so $200/12 would be my monthly cost plus plan. Id pick the $50 month (after $5 CR) with 200gb & 10mbs unlimited data that includes tethering!

      If your a student and show ID, you can get $40 plan with 80gb and 2Mbs unlimited data but no international calls and text.

  • +4

    Basically you would have the phone plan for almost free. You juat pay off the phone over 12 mths.

    • +3

      $40 for 40gb is on the pricier side…

      • +1

        get a student ID, you can get $40 plan with 80gb and 2Mbs unlimited data but no international calls and text

        • -3

          How do you get a student ID?

          • @ballistykx: Just saw the question. Do a TAFE course (any tafe course) as long as you get a tafe ID email.
            I also think online courses can also give you student ID, some courses are FREE (any additional info, please share)

            But while the student offer is 80 gb and not 40gb for $40, the $45 plan anyone can get has 120gb and is well worth the upgrade anyway!
            BUT… the best offer is the 200gb $50 plan as you get more data and it slows to 10Mbs (4.5gb an hour or almost 100Gb a day) when slowed down!

            Felix Mb have 20Mbs, about 9gb or 200gb a day max possible data with unlimited calls and text, SIM ONLY (calls are 3G, data is 4G, no 5G) also on the Vodafone network. Im using it now myself but I dont mind all the bells and whistles of being on Vodafone proper, like VoIP and VoLTE

  • How do they detect if you are using hot spot data?

    • +2

      This only effects the UNLIMITED PLAN as it has a LOW 30gb of TETHERED data (hotspot via WIFI/BT/LEAD) and its easy to do from the network end; PLUS data over 30gb is a LOW 2Mbs (mega bits per second)

      So this is for use in a mobile only, a modem would be detected and probably banned! In a phone, you can use local data but hotspot to an ipad/laptop or TV and your subject to the 30Gb limit that then slows.

      • yes i was wondering if other members could share what sort of method they used to detect traffic that is coming from a hotspot vs your phone, etc

        • How would they know if you were using your mobile as a hotspot, say to torrent linux ISOs from your PC?

          • @Meconium: Trust me, turn on HOTSPOT and they CAN and DO measure and limit data! Its why the $60 300gb 10Mbs (4.5Gb Hour) is the better option or even the $50 200Gb 10Mbs (4.5Gb hour) offer

            • @srhardy: Turns out they don’t seem to watch the data. The 30gb limit seems to be a limit when roaming overseas.

              I can. Now attest to having this plan now and doing 100gb to a tv and laptop the first night I had it. Been working strong ever since

  • Is it true that Vodafone is using Huawei for their 5G infrastructure?

    • +3

      I don/t think so, think the AU Government Communication banned them, so they had to remove some equipment and did a deal with Swedish NOKIA for 5G equipment but lucky a lot of it was all plug-n-play swappable. I think Vodafone, Telstra & Optus have Huawei 4G equipment but it wasn't part of the USA scare campaign against China (this was when Trump started the china trade war) and Huawei was just in the line of fire! Funny thing is, all the things they accused but never once proved China ever did with Huawei, the USA has been doing with EU GSM standards and makers of communications equipment (backdoors, traps, spyware; down to silicon level!)

      So rest assured the NSA can give you back a copy of all your calls, DNS requests and addressbook!

      • Thank god for the NSA

        • +2

          Huawei had a SHARED LAB in the UK for Security that gave the UK government full silicone level, line code level view of the hardware and software for the MUCH CHEAPER Huawei 5G equipment, so they KNEW it was a lot safer and secure than the EU GMS based stuff but as part of 5EYES NSA-USA/AU/NZ/CNDA/UK it was impervious to the US spying, so the CIA, using the info from the NSA got Trump on board to banning Huawei…

          Ive watched this game from when we moved from awesome CDMA to GSM (EU Standards) as the GSM system had backdoors and Patents$$$, but China went to WCDMA and then to TDCDMA and combined thats 5G and CHINA pioneered it! But they owned all the Patents so had to wait for the GSM group to define their own, interoperable standards and that delayed 5G by now 5 years! In AU we don't even have 1st gen 5G mmWave; what we have is LTE 5G bridging technology. When it comes to TRADE, Patents and the GRAND GAME between nations, the 5G war is a macrocosm of this!

      • +1

        Finally someone with sense everytime someone says Huawei is bad I keep saying the nsa has been doing this for ages !!! Shame huawei came into the firing line and got the ban the used to make great phones with great cameras !!

        • NSA and Mossad have compromised USB standards and chip level implementation and proof is after this was made known, as the flaws persist, you can BUY USB data thriving, key-logging and eBombs now. They compromised Siemens silicone level micro-controllers so they could burn out Irans centrifuge program and setback its nuclear enrichment program. We went from CDMA that was open and free, no patents to GSM as the USA and EU had patented it and got paid to slow down innovation (2g 3g 4g LTE 5G and 5G mmWave 6G) as it maxamised profits and they could spy on the world! We've known this since disclosures now for over a decade from WikiLeaks and Snowden were the last to report how wide spread it was, not that it was anything new!

    • pretty sure Huawei was banned by Turnbull in Australia following Trump doing the same

  • What’s the cost of cancellation ?

    • You pay the cost of the phone as if it wasnt discounted at all and thats it.

  • I’m trying to work out how I can make this work with salary sacrifice but I don’t think there’s a way, is there?

    • +1

      I think you just set your monthly Salary Sacrifice payment as your mobile phone total bill amount with the payment info on your first bill (account number/amount)

    • No cancelation cost, but I did notice a $15 port out fee and of course you haver to pay out the handset then without the monthly subsides.

  • +1

    Shame that the mini is not included in this deal

    • we will see more deals like this on the other models Im betting. the iPhone 13 is probably just the first off the rank as the announcement of the iPhone 14 is now 3 months away and sales, four ~ what I do know is the iPhone 12/13 series are both 5G mobiles and I wouldnt be buying the previous versions or the SE1/2 (even though the SE2 has 5G)… You have eBay, FaceBook Marketplace and often you can buy 12 series used with applecare!

      Last year in Nov I think, JBHIFI had the 12mini 64gb free on a 12 month Telstra contract and if a telstra 12 month contract isnt a problem then we might see this again

  • Weird, the Telstra day thread is 4 pages long already and they are charging $50 more and the plans cost more and include less!

    • $50 more than who for the phone outright?

      • Vodafone have the iPhone 13 with $400 (telstra $350) but you can pay for the telstra outright and the 13 over 12 months

  • Can I price beat the iPhone 13 device cost with Telstra's 12 month plan?

    • nope, telstra wont match it… and vofafone is removing the offer in two days

  • +1

    If I sign up for the 12 month plan with Vodafone today and the phone is on backorder, will my service plan begin today (when order is placed), or when I receive the device (which might be in a few weeks)?

    Do you know when the billing cycle begin - is it every 17th of the month? If so, it would be a bonus to have almost a month of free service if the device gets delivered after 17th July, since "Your first bill is calculated without pro rata, which means you won’t be charged a plan fee for using your service between your connection date and your first bill cycle date".

    Would like to take advantage of the deal but still data/credits left on my current service with another carrier…

  • This deal expires tomorrow not starts tomorrow.

    Hey all,

    I'd rather buy the iPhone 13 handset outright (as I prefer using local simcards over global roaming when I'm travelling for extended periods)

    Unfortunately, I missed out on Telstra's one-day promotion (iPhone 13 for $999).

    What's the likelihood that we'll see such promotions (the handset under $1000 AUD) in lead up to the iPhone 14 release in Sep/Oct?

    Is it worth waiting, or is this Vodafone deal the best it'll get? I can probably hold out for another month before I retire my current phone.

    Anyways, this Vodafone deal is only live for another 24h, so would really appreciate advice.

    Thanks all :-)

    • Hard to tell. Jbhifi usaly have a nice 12 month offer before Xmas but I’m guessing the latest price hikes will be passed on to Jb’s plan too. Also by this time roaming should be complete with V on Ts network.

      While plans are month to month, I think it’s time to lock in a good deal as inflation makes new offerings worse than what we’re used to
