The four carriers selling the Galaxy S4 – Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile – have all announced their plan offerings. And, as expected, you’ll be paying more per month because of the cost of the phone (it costs $899 outright). So, what are the carriers offering?

Telstra

$87 per month on their Everyday Connect $80 plan. This includes $800 worth of international national calls and MMS, plus unlimited SMS to any Australian numbers and 1.5GB of data. Telstra is also selling the phone outright for $816.

The Galaxy S4 is on sale on Vodafone for $65 per month – on its $60 Vodafone Plan with $5 monthly handset repayment fee.

The equivalent plan for Optus, compared to Telstra, costs $67 per month on their $60 Optus Plan with $7 monthly handset repayment fee. It includes $650 of included value, but unlimited national SMS, unlimited voice calls to any Optus mobile number, and 1.5GB of data.

It also has an $83 Optus plan offering on their $80 Optus Plan with a $3 monthly handset repayment fee. It includes $850 of included value, but unlimited national SMS, unlimited voice calls to any Optus mobile number, and 2GB of data.

Virgin Mobile

The Galaxy S4 will cost $61 per month under their Big Plan $49 with $12 monthly handset repayment fee. This comes with unlimited SMS messages to any mobile number in Australia, $450 of credit, and 2GB of data included.
