I can see that the charges are just about the same with UK, manageable. It ain't easy to relocate.

The only way to use your US plan in Oz is by a roaming agreement with a local carrier - this will be very expensive , get a local carrier SIM .
All iPhones have the same bands ie iPhone 4 , 850 , 2100 WCDMA , 900 , 2100 GSM . These will only work if the phone is unlocked ... for instance all US iPhone 4 's are locked to AT&T as they have exclusive use of that phone unlike Oz where you are free to choose your provider . Due to the nature of the population density here all providers (3) have good cover in city's but if you want the best overall coverage is the best using its 3G (next G) network . I provide this info as someone with 38 years in the telecom industry in Oz .

Global Phone Contract

Thereís a great new provider offering global contracts. One sim for every country Ė been a godsend for me as Iím for ever having to change out sims and numbers to avoid roaming charges.

Check out Vendome, Sydney - luxury mobile phone service.

It depends on where you want to go. I'm living in South Australia and out of the city Telstra is the only provider that will give you any coverage!

You'll also need a telstra phone with 4g. If I put my simcard in my Dutch iPhone I still don't have reception here. You can get a basic telstra phone and simcard for $40.

In the cities and bigger towns the other providers will suffice as well. Hope that helps
