Interesting re Optus. I hear that and I haven't got anything to compare it to (only 3G network I've used). May not be blazingly fast, but I've never had any real issues with it. Just discovered that Voda is no better than 3 where I am (which is almost non-existent), so that leaves O or T. BTW, 3 roaming is expensive for data, but included in the cap for voice and text. Believe me, I know! Fortunately iOS4 lets you turn off data so unexpected surprises are less likely.
Thanks for the feedback though, I may yet make the jump.

Well, I haven't really heard positive things about Optus anywhere - by all reports their network is super slow, so if you're happy to live with that then go ahead!
Voda: Last time I saw someone with a phone on Voda around my town, they had immense trouble finding anywhere with signal, so not the best coverage.
Three isn't a great idea outside urban centres either - it roams onto Telstra's network (=expensive roaming) or Voda's (which doesn't work anyway).
