Best phones on a contract


Virgin is currently one of the best value telcos if you're looking at phones on a contract, and tends to offer very competitive options for both cheaper and high-end plans.

If you want a good phone on a budget, Virgin has the iPhone SE 32GB available on a contract for $40 per month. This gets you 3GB of data, unlimited talk and text, and $50 of international calls. As a bonus, you also get a once-off 10GB Data Gift if you sign up by 11 October.
