iPhone 4 available Friday, new plans from Optus and Telstra

With the impending release of Apple’s newest iPhone, Australian operators Optus and Telstra have started things off with new caps and prices.

Telstra got things going early this morning with the first pricing for the iPhone 4.
The new Telstra plans include $49, $79, and $99 caps and include monthly data limits of 200MB and 500MB on the Telstra NextG network. The “monthly included value” (interpreted as national voice and text) sits between $400 and $1000 depending on the plan you go for.
A couple of hours later, Optus announced plans that took a more data-friendly approach.
Starting at $49 per month, subscribers can grab $450 monthly voice and text credit with 1GB for data. Plans continue to get better at $59 and $79 while an $89 cap provides “unlimited national voice and text” and 3GB of data to play with.
Vodafone and Three should be announcing plans tomorrow, while Virgin’s pricing announcements is yet to be known.
Of course there’s always buying the phone outright if you’re not interested in a new plan. If this sounds like you, Apple will be selling the iPhone 4 from $859 from Friday.
Update: We’ve also got pricing for Vodafone and 3 Mobile too!
