Just wondering how these prices (see Targets current catalogue below) compare to contract deals in Oz.

http://www.target.com.au/html/catalogue1896/1896e30.htm

We need to sort out phones as soon as we arrive and would welcome advice. To pre-pay or to go contract??

If you are just arriving, you may not be able to get a contract phone! The Vodafone prepay cap is a good alternative, $49 and you get $230 worth (it lasts a month!)

yeah realise that thanks but was thinking along the lines that we may not have or be able to obtain b/band when first getting a rental so cheapest will be best for the short term !!

It allows you 20min of international calls and you are still left with a load of credit! I have only used all mine in a month once!
