  • I'm not seeing a lot on this on forums. I don't know if people haven't noticed?

    I got screwed because their web form wasn't working and the chat consultant that activated me didn't inform me. So my first inkling that I only had 7 days left was when i hadn't turned on data or used the thing and I got an SMS informing me there's only 2 days left.

    They've basically just made their $10 cards worthless. it's not worth the time and hassle of activating them. I've got a ton to burn through then I'm not touching Optus again!

  • Doh! Yeah, this new plan must be designed to "maximise" profit for Optus yet Internet searches indicate this change for the worse does not appear to have caused much reaction from customers. I got a few $10 kits I was saving for when I need extra data for a day or two but now the $10 credit will only last 7 days max [argh], thanks for alerting us OP.

  • They are getting rid of this on the 5th. Wonder what they'll come up with next. It is pretty crap, was using it for data every now and then over 6 month or 1 month as needed. Now you essentially have to use it, can't leave it for a rainy day so to speak.

  • So Optus has now gone back to offering My Prepaid Daily Plus
