The best iPhone 8 plans

Best overall value – iPhone 8 64GB | 30GB data | $500 international calls and text | $93 pm

If the iPhone X is too much for you and most of the plans are looking pretty grim for iPhone 8 as well, this plan from Virgin Mobile is a life saver.

Best iPhone 8 plan for each carrier

Best Telstra plan – iPhone 8 64GB | 20GB data | Unlimited international calls and texts | $109 pm

It's not worth looking at the lowest plans on Telstra as you'll be missing out on a lot of what makes the telco so popular. The 20GB data plan is the lowest you can go while still scoring yourself a 24-month Foxtel Now starter pack subscription and unlimited international calls and texts. Total cost over 24 months is $2,616
