Telstra’s handset prices jump

Telstra has begun hiking up the prices of most mobile phone handsets as part of the plan to phase out handset subsidies. For example a Nokia 3310 on a Communic8 Mobile plan 45 will now cost customers $69 when before they received it for free while the cost of a Nokia 8250 on a FrontRunner 40 plan has increased to $319, up from $249.
