Looks like Optus has joined Virgin Mobile in offering the HTC One S and as a bonus they also have the One V on their website as well. Both phones can be had on the $30 plan however the One S will run you a premium with an $11 per month handset repayment on top or you can go up to the $50 plan with $0 upfront. No mention of Beats headphones with the Optus HTC One S unfortunately so if that is a factor in your purchasing decision then you may need to look at Virgin Mobile.

Looks like the issues with the One V have been resolved. If you`re interested in either phone you can check out the One S and the One V on the Optus Website or head in store.
