Getting a new whiz bang handset soon (probably HTC Desire HD) and will likely buy outright, I send a reasonable amount of texts but rarely use it for voice calls, most of all I'll use it for data - emails/forums/web/apps/etc and probably tethering.

Are Telstra really a great deal better than the others?  With Virgin/Optus I find my 3G connection on the iPhone is really crap if there's more than half a dozen people in my postcode using the network, 99% of my usage will be within 2km of the CBD.

Never mind your choice of carrier, you have a bigger problem.  There's a big, wide world out there. :)

Back on topic - Telstra is unbeatable for coverage.  Full stop, end of story.  If Optus/Vodafone offered a free service, I still wouldn't use them.

And I can see it all on Google Earth at the bar with my mobile! :D

Yeah, righto.  Having a hell of a time trying to decipher their plans on the website though - might have to actually talk to someone. :scared:

If you have gadget questions type them out I'll forward them to our resident devices guy and see what he says, he's from Melbourne.

I've done my research on gadgets, I know what I want, the problem is getting a reasonable service.

It's not that hard........ :confused:

Yeah, 200-1000mb of data, woo woo. :fap:

The 6gb plan would be ok, $129 bucks a month though? Sheesh.  Will have to see if there's data blocks you can purchase, all I need is a simple voice/text plan to add to it then.
