Late in the day on the day before they start selling the iPhone 3GS, Telstra have finally released their price and plan details. And there’s quite a bit to go through.

Not included in the tables below, is Telstra’s ‘Phone Plan Ultimate’. There’s no upfront charge for the phone, and you get $1,500 of standard voice calls SMS to Australian numbers… but only 150MB of data per month. The minimum cost on this plan over the 24 month contract is $3,600. ‘Ulimatish’ rather than Ulimate I’d say.

Now, to the other plans.
