expired Optus X Lite Prepaid Mobile Phone $19 (RRP $39) @ Target + Free Optus Sim Card


First-time poster and long-time lurker - cliche, I know but please go easy on me!

I was on the search for a basic phone my Grandma could use in case of an emergency or becoming lost in public. A used smart phone wont cut it as she's not tech-savvy at all. I looked everywhere and found this little beauty at Target for $19 (it is $39 elsewhere, including at Optus). Great reviews if you google it.

Also, Optus is giving out free sim starter kits until the end of September (usually $2) —> https://offer.optus.com.au/shop/prepaid/sim-card/2-sim If you plan to get this as an emergency phone for a loved-one you can recharge $30 with a long expiry date of 186 days. Don't go for the $60, 365 days expiry because it appears to be more expensive? o_O

    $30 with a long expiry date of 186 days

    An even cheaper plan is Cmobile's Red PAYG plan, $50/year, and you get $50 of credit for calls and data. But it uses the Vodafone network, does anyone know how much it costs to unlock this phone?

    Thanks. Price matched it at Big W.
    Funny as online Big W showed no stock but in store there were plenty of them!

    Thanks - was looking for a 2nd phone to take running. Only problem is I'd probably want to unlock it. I went to the optus.com.au/unlock website which says

    "Have you recharged your service to a minimum / accumulated amount of $80.00?
    Yes: There is no fee to network unlock your handset
    No: How long has your service been active?
    Less than 6 months: There is an $80 fee
    More than 6 months: There is a $25 fee"


    Post office also has this available at $19 with free delivery.
