Australia's largest mobile carrier today announced that it would give away a free 12-month trial of Apple Music with a 12 or 24 month Go Mobile plan on iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. The deal marks the first time the new music service will be given away with a mobile plan.

Additionally, the carrier's notes on the promotion indicate that the service will use carrier billing. When users sign up and agree to the terms and conditions Apple Music's payment will be paid via the Telstra rather than Apple directly. This means that users have to renew or cancel their trial through their carrier bill.

Last week, T-Mobile announced that it would add Apple Music to its Music Unlimited service, allowing Simple Choice customers to listen to the streaming music service without the cellular data counting against their 4G LTE data plan. Unlike the Telstra deal, users are not given a free trial to the service by T-Mobile.

Just signed up as per the instructions above. Just waiting for the text to confirm and process the request. Easy as pie.
If you have already subscribed to Apple Music, make sure you cancel your subscription before trying to link your Apple ID and Telstra in the Music app.

It took me longer than I want to admit working this out...

Pay Tel$tra heaps more for data to save $12 a month for Apple Music. Handy only if you're with Telstra for their better rural coverage
