I had no idea at first but with experience and various problems , it gets a bit easier. I would first decide what carrier you are happy with , then go to that shopfront . So if it is Telstra, then go to a Telstra shop. Have a browse at the different phones and plans . The phone is there so you can touch and the plan should be written on the counter. Virgin and Optus are the same . Also places like Kmart can buy phones outright . Look at the benefits such as free calls, texts etc and decide if its right for you . I am a minimum phone user so my plan is as low as you can get $30/mth .
