    can't get it to be $30. still says $40 even when clicking thru the image

  •  

    Will ABC iview be part of the free streaming? Not counted towards the 15GB ?

  •  

    Showing as $40 for me everywhere.

    Unmetered streaming (which tends to use >2/3 of total data usage)…
    Hellooo evening congestion!

  •  

    Hi. Please be gentle. If I buy a Chromecast I can watch shows from this plan without incurring charges?

    problem with Optus is peak time means no internet whatsoever

  •  

    can i port my existing TPG nbr over with this?

    •  

      Yes, just have you account number handy when you signup because they will need it to port the number over

      •  

        I just ported my TPG mobile subscription and they only asked for the operator and phone number, no questions about account number…

  •  

    Does anyone know if I port from Virgin to this will my number be unusable for some time?

  •  

    geez, i am on live chat with optus at the moment in an attempt to recontract on this and they arent even acknowledging the deal exists….

    •  

      same here

      •  

        theyve finally admitted they won't recontract anyone on this plan. i dont want to port out and in as i dont want to lose my data share sims. oh well!

        •  

          I know how you feel, I have those data share sims too and they are gold!

        •  

          @JTTheMan: What are these magical data share sims you speak of?

        •  

          @Smol Cat:
          You could pay an extra $5 per month and share your data with another device (e.g. Tablet, wifi hotspot).

        •  

          It was a one off payment of $5. I'm surprised they havent dropped service for them.

        • +1 vote

          @Smol Cat There was a plan Optus had a couple of years ago that included extra data sims to share with your plan.
          Each sim cost a one-off $5 fee and you could purchase up to 10 sims to share on your plan.

          I purchased 4 sims (I should have bought 10) before Optus stopped offering the deal but they continue to honour the sims I already have.

          It's effectively free mobile internet if you have a decent data quota. I have three of the sims in Huawei 4G modems and one of the sims in my iPad Air

        •  

          @JTTheMan: Oh boy that does sound bloody amazing. Does it apply still whenever you update your plan to new higher data caps??

        • +1 vote

          @Smol Cat: Yes, as long as I keep my number I effectively keep that plan, even though that contract passed over a year ago the actual "plan" agreement holds.

          I have taken advantage of it to the max at the moment, I purchased the iPhone X 256gb with 200gb data for $149/month

          so now I share 200gb with the 3 x 4G modems and the iPad

        •  

          @JTTheMan: Love it. How much is your iPhone X repayments a month over 24 months?

          I just bought one myself, but outright.

        •  

          @Smol Cat: $149/mth 24 mths
          I was going to get it outright but went for this plan instead because of the huge data and because I had those sims

          Optus should realise I only stay with them because of those sims and they should really bring back that offer. Optus are you listening?

        •  

          I was on the $40pm for 10GB and recontracted to $30pm with 15GB. I was prepared to loose my data share sim.
          However, my data share sim was unaffected and continues to work. I think it might not be directly linked to the account. No guarantees though!!

        •  

          @howbazaar: how did you convince optus to let you recontract on to the $30 plan? im about to pull the trigger and recontract onto the $36 20gb student plan (i still have an active student email).

        •  

          @xyron: Via online chat; transfer out to prepaid for a day. Then sign up.

          Even more surprising that my data sim carried on despite doing that.

    •  

      I tried out selecting 'I am with optus' and 'Buy a new plan' in order to recontract and select 'keep existing number' . It goes all the way through to place order (even when i am logged in to my optus account)

      I am just wondering if they'll process this?

    •  

      …for us recontracting, I guess I am wondering if we 'buy a new plan' and cancel the existing out of contract plan

  •  

    Perfect. Just as my 6 months of Amaysim renewals comes to an end.

  •  

    Or for $60 you can get the S8 and 20gb of data and unmetered netflix over 24 months.

  •  

    Great way to saturate the Optus mobile network by promoting Netflix. Lets hope the boffins have capacity in order.

  •  

    still $9 more expensive per month compared to kogan 16 GB when it's on discount

      Yeah but this is on a different network with free streaming. Vodafone is no good for lots of people.

        I'm suprised at the amount of regional users on ozbargain

        • +2 votes

          I'm not regional and Vodafone is terrible in my area… The people I know who are with Vodafone talk about black spots all over town that I don't seem to get. But each to their own I guess.

          @Tuhan:

          I live south of sydney CBD. The voda reception is rubbish when you are on the train. 2 back spots over a 20 minute ride….

        •  

          @Tuhan: oh i barely use my phone to call

        •  

          @shadow131:

          I'm hinterland of the Gold Coast and my Dad was with Vodafone and his reception was Terrible too…

        •  

          @Oz8argain:

          I presume having a lack of reception may also cause a lack in internet connection/speed?

        • +1 vote

          @Tuhan: I agree, I'm currently on the Kogan 16GB deal and my contract ends in 4 months but I'm thinking about just giving it up early as the coverage is really terrible. Sick of having no service with my friends on optus get at least 1-2 bars of 4G.

        •  

          @Smol Cat: that sounds really bad, what area is this? I have no issues when Melb CBD and melb east side

          @Smol Cat:

          Yeah that seems to be the consensus for most ppl on Voda… I'm personally with Telstra and have an awesome deal that every time I go to see if they can do better, they can't.. So happy to stick with my current deal atm.. But this Optus deal is good value for what's going at the moment.

        •  

          @Tuhan: I want to get onto telstra but its such a rip. Please share your offer

        •  

          @Oz8argain: Sorry I should clarify that this is whenever we drive about 1-2 hours out of Sydney.

          I'm currently (and have been on for the last 2yrs) Sim only plan: $10/mth - $1000 calls (unlimited texts) - 21GB data

          It isn't an actual plan but have managed to get them to drop the price for me of a plan they had 2yrs ago and add a bunch of data. Every 6mths I try to see if they can do a better deal for me and have yet to get one…

        •  

          @Tuhan: wow beast! no one can beat that let alone Telstra. Well done!
          with that much data you can just call people on whatsapp.

          Just for you ;)

          You'll notice a few different credits on my latest bill (credit that telstra owed me) so I've highlighted the parts that i get each month. Original plan is $50 - $20 credit and next page $20 credit = $10/mth :D

          At this stage I can't seem to find anything better than that.

          @Tuhan: At this stage!?! You are basically are a God. Would go down as one of the best deals in Ozbargain history. Kudos.

          @w3b3d1g1:

          Haha - I know of only one person who is on a better deal than this ;) It's a long story but I kid you not, Telstra PAY HIM $5/mth for his plan… That's right. PAY HIM!! It is a bundled deal with other things, but his actual Mobile plan has been given that much credit per month that he gets paid $5.. No lie!

        •  

          For the last 2 years, I've been on a plan that included an iPhone 7 for $8 a month. Included unlimited calls & texts plus 5GB of data - didn't often use all of that either.

          That plan ends today & can't get anything anywhere near it :/

          Oh well, I guess I did alright paying $192 and ending up with the mobile.

        •  

          @whodidthat:

          Niceee!! Although mine is for life. So as long as I don't change my plan, I stay on $10/mth with my inclusions. Having 21GB (and have done for over 2yrs now) is the big winner for me.

        •  

          @Tuhan: You're so lucky!

  •  

    do you think students can get another 10%? if so the network might not cope

  •  

    Does this include Optus Sport?

    • +3 votes

      Only if Optus Sport means hunting down Optus customer services personnel with a pick axe after they destroy your sanity

    •  

      It does, you have to add the Optus Sports from "SPORT, ENTERTAINMENT & EXTRAS" to your plan which is free.

  •  

    Thanks for this OP. Great offer! I have paused my cart details (not progressed with an actual order) and emailed myself a copy of the cart via the ordering page link. I am going away for two weeks and I do not want the SIM to arrive during that time.

    The Optus email states "Please note that the cart details are effective for the next 15 days (expire 28 February 2018)" Just FYI for anyone in a similar position… I hope that they honor that Feb 28 offer expiry date lol. Optus are fraught with ordering woes and stuff ups usually. The email provides you with a direct link to your cart.
