The best iPhone 8 plans

Best overall value – iPhone 8 64GB | 80GB data | No lock-in contract | $87.45 pm

There's some tough competition in this price range at the moment but Vodafone has a slight edge here. You'll get 80GB of data and can leave the plan at any time, only having to pay off the remaining value of the handset itself. Stock seems to be coming at going at Vodafone however, so if it isn't available, check out this similar $87 pm / 60GB plan from Optus that offers a 6-month Apple Music trial as well. Total cost over 24 months is $2,098.80

Best budget option – iPhone 8 64GB (refurbished) | 4GB data | $45 pm

This is the cheapest plan going for the iPhone 8 right now, and while it's a refurbished device, you'll be hard-pressed finding a better plan than $45 per month. You'll get yourself 4GB of data to use and a one-off sum of 3GB, with any unsed getting saved up for later use. Each refurbished handset from Nu Mobile comes with a 12-month warranty and a 30-day cooling off period. Total cost over 24 months is $1,080
