Everyone’s counting down to the launch of iPhone 4S tomorrow and we can’t wait to make it available on Australia’s largest and fastest national mobile network.

iPhone 4SIn response to record interest, Telstra will open its entire store network early tomorrow, Friday 14 October, to give customers across Australia the chance to get in and purchase iPhone 4S from 8am (local time).

And in some great news for customers who live and work in regional Australia, we’re pleased to say that for the first time the iPhone 4S has achieved our Blue Tick coverage rating. This means it delivers superior handheld mobile coverage in regional and rural coverage areas when teamed with the Telstra Mobile Network.

We will be offering iPhone 4S on some great-value Freedom® Connect Plans. For instance, customers can purchase iPhone 4S 16 GB on the $79 Freedom Connect Plan for $0 upfront after using an included MRO Bonus (for eligible customers) over 24 months (min cost is $1,896) which offers $800 worth of calls and MMS plus unlimited text messaging to standard Australian numbers and 2GB of data for use in Australia.

Telstra also has a range of Business Maximiser plans to keep iPhone 4S business customers productive on the go. You can check out the full details below.

For the first time, Telstra customers can also pre-order iPhone online before the launch. This is a great option if you can’t make it to one of our stores. Just head here to pre-order iPhone 4S online (while stocks last) and have it delivered to your door in the coming days.
