Best budget option — iPhone 7 Plus 32GB | Unlimited talk and texts | 2GB data | Music streaming that doesn't count towards data | $81 pm
While there is a cheaper tier on the Virgin network at $69 a month, paying the extra $12 is absolutely worth it considering you get unlimited national calls and texts rather than $300 of value, along with a data cap bumped up from 500MB to 2GB. This is an ideal plan if most of your data usage comes from music streaming, because if you use select services (including Spotify and Google Play Music) it won't count toward your data cap, while the lower tier doesn't have this boon. Total cost over 24 months is $1,944

Best iPhone 7 Plus deals on Telstra (July 2017)

Best value overall — iPhone 7 Plus 128GB | 12GB data | Unlimited local and international talk and texts | $130 pm

The cost of entry for an iPhone 7 Plus plan with Telstra is $100 a month. Included you'll get $550 of calls, unlimited text, 1GB of data, and streaming on Apple Music that won't count toward your cap, so this is ideal if you're after the coverage that Telstra offers but don't use your device heavily. If this isn't you, we'd recommend a different carrier as they tend to offer much more in the way of calls and data at this price point. Total cost over 24 months is $2,400

Best iPhone 7 Plus deals on Optus (July 2017)

Best overall value — iPhone 7 Plus 128GB | 10GB data | Unlimited talk and text | Optus Sport | $112 pm
Unlimited calls and texts, an extra 3GB and the inclusion of free Optus Sport make this an awesome value deal from Optus. You likely won't reach that new total of 10GB considering this deal comes with a variety of music, TV, and movie streaming services not counting toward your data cap too. Grab this deal while it's currently reduced to the same prices as an equivalent iPhone 7 Plus 32GB and make use of that extra free storage. Total cost over 24 months is $2,688

Best budget option — iPhone 7 Plus 128GB |  1GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $90 pm 

Although normally the best budget option would be going for the lower capacity (32GB) iPhone 7 Plus, Optus currently has an offer where you can get the next step up (128GB) for the same price. You can grab unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data, which is very respectable for the lowest tier plan. There's also the included streaming from several music services without it counting toward your data cap, which will go a long way in keeping you afloat with the 1GB. Total cost over 24 months is $2,160

Optus has the most data on offer out of all the providers at 100GB, almost tripling the nearest competition, and this plan comes with a host of other premium options to boot. You won't have to worry about any calls or text you make as they are all unlimited, even international and roaming calls, and you'll also get a nifty 1.5GB of included roaming data a month.

iphone 7 deals on vodafone

Best iPhone 7 Plus deals on Vodafone (July 2017)

Overall best value — iPhone 7 Plus 128GB | 10GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $107 pm
Coming with an extra 4GB for a limited time, this plan is by far the best value on Vodafone at the moment. Unlimited talk and text and a total of 10GB make it a decent all-rounder, however overall this carrier isn't as competitive as other carriers given its lack of included extras. Total cost over 24 months is $2,568

Best budget option — iPhone 7 Plus 128GB | 2GB Data | Unlimited talk and text | $90 pm
Although this contract doesn't come with any extras, 2GB is very decent for the lowest tier plan and, at present, the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus is at the same price as the 32GB iPhone 7 Plus, so you may as well get a free storage upgrade. Unlimited talk and text across all of Vodafone's plans make it a better choice in the budget range compared to Telstra, but perhaps not when put next to Virgin or Optus.  Total cost over 24 months is $2,160

Biggest data option — iPhone 7 Plus 256GB | 32GB data | Unlimited talk and text | $138pm
A bonus 10GB bumps this plan up from 22GB to 32GB, which is truly monstrous.  As with all Vodafone plans, you're getting unlimited calls and texts here, but unfortunately there aren't any other perks at this premium price-tier such as are offered by Telstra and Optus networks. That's fine if you're purely after the data, but you'll be missing out on unlimited international calls from both Telstra and Optus' top-tier plans.  Total cost over 24 months is $3,312
