Buying a phone outright or buying a phone on a plan…

Here’s some sums I did. I couldn’t work out how to turn this into an intelligible graph or table, so you visual types will just have to get verbal for a while. Although it’s just dot points, so you should really stop complaining…

1. Optus $49 plan ($550 of credit) with a Samsung Galaxy S2 (extra $5 per month) for 24 months
$1296

2. Live Connected $10.99 plan ($500 of credit) with a Samsung Galaxy S2 from Mobicity for $599 over 24 months
$862.76 ($335.24 cheaper than Optus and you’re not locked in to an ongoing plan)

3. Live Connected $10.99 plan ($550 of credit) with a Samsung Galaxy Ace (the entry level Galaxy) from Mobicity for $299 over 24 months

$562.76 ($733.24 cheaper than the Galaxy S2 with Optus, and no lock-in contract)
