‘Cap’ plans vary from $29 to $79, while Apple’s iPhone 4S will be available on there Infinite plan(calls, text) deals ranging from $45-$100, Vodafone has announced.

However the $49, $59 and $79 caps come with generous 1.5GB, 2GB, 3GB data, meaning you can download data ’til the cows come home (well pretty much).

The cheapest iPhone deal from Vodafone is the $29 cap which comes unlimited Voda to Voda calls, 200MB data and the handset is free, regardless of whether its the 16GB, 32GB or 64GB model.

Telstra’s cheapest deal, in comparison, is its $59 Freedom Connect plan, introducing the company’s $79, $99 and $129 offers, while Optus are offering the new iPhone on a $49 option. 

Voda’s Infinite deals also comes with decent data allowances, particularly on the $65 (2GB), $85 (3GB) and $100 (4GB) and free calls and texts to any network in Oz, while Telstra’s data allowances, although on the faster network, are notably lacking especially on higher priced plans.

Aside from $29 cap, on all other plans, handset instalments range from $8 to a whopping $57 monthly  – depending on the plan, although iPhone 4S 64GB appears to be the priciest option, while the 8GB model has minimal fees.
