Optus to introduce ‘unlimited’ mobile pricing plans

By on

Optus has revealed today that they will be launching brand new unlimited mobile pricing plans, that will include unlimited calls (including video calls) and SMS/MMS, plus large data usage allowances.

Dubbed the ‘yes’ Timeless plans, they will also be available for iPhone purchasers too – but without the MMS, Push to Talk or video calling since the iPhone has not supported it (which I think its crap for not supporting it – I’m still thinking of getting one though).

Blackberry users are also entitled to take up the plans, they just need to pay for an additional fee for the service on top of it, with Unlimited email costing $39.95 per month for a 24 month contract, or $49.95 for month-to-month users. There is a cheaper "Executive" plan which will cost $25.95 per month, or $29.95 for those not on a contract.

The following plans are below:
