The best iPhone X plans

Given the $1,579 starting price of the handset, most people are going to want to pick it up as part of a plan. Like the outright prices, the plans are similarly steep, but here's the cheapest plans you can order the iPhone X on right now.

Best overall value – iPhone X 256GB | 30GB data | $500 international calls and texts | $123 pm

If you're gonna fork out for the iPhone X, you may as well grab the larger model and add some bells and whistles to the plan as well. Thankfully, this stellar plan from Virgin Mobile balances a reasonable price with a load of extras. Data rollover and data-free streaming with Spotify, Google Play Music, and iHeartRadio will make those 30GB go a long way. Total cost over 24 months is $2,952

You'll also get $50 worth of international talk and text a month, data rollover, and streaming via Spotify, Google Play Music and iHeartRadio won't count towards your data cap. Total cost over 24 months is $2,112

Best big data option – iPhone X 256GB | 100GB data | Unlimited roaming calls and texts | $140 pm

You'll also get 1.5GB of roaming data and unlimited roaming calls and texts if you're a bit of a jet-setter.  Total cost over 24 months is $3,360

The best iPhone X plan for each carrier

Best Telstra plan – iPhone X 64GB | 40GB data | Foxtel Now starter pack subscription | $149 pm

Total cost over 24 months is $3,576
