What you need to know

General: Fair Go policy applies. For more info, see Optus Critical Information Summaries which can be found at optus.com.au/cis or pick one up in store.

My Plan Flex Plans: allow you to lease an eligible device on a 24 month plan and use it to access the Optus network. You do not own the device and you must return the device to Optus in good working order at the end of your contract. If it is not in good working order, you’ll pay a damage fee of up to $499. If the phone gets damaged during your lease and you’d like to have it fixed, you need to pay to have it repaired by Optus or the manufacturer (excludes warranty/consumer guarantee claims).

You can offer to purchase the device at the end of your 24 month lease contract for fair market value (which Optus will advise at the time). If you don’t return the device at the end of your contract term, you’ll continue to pay monthly device charges for up to 6 months (as well as your plan fees). At that point, if you still don't return the device, you will have to pay Optus a non- return fee (the fair market value of the device which Optus will advise at the time) and you will own the device.

After 12 months you can upgrade the device by paying a one-off fee of $99. To do this you need to return the current device in good working order to Optus and get a new device on a new 24-month plan. If the current device is damaged, you’ll pay a damage fee. If you don’t return the current device within 14 days of your new contract you’ll have to pay for the device at its fair market value.

Cancellation: If you cancel at any time within the 24 month contract term you will be charged a plan cancellation fee, pro-rated monthly for your remaining contract term. Additionally, if you cancel in the first 18 months you’ll have to keep the phone and pay all monthly device charges (which will be increased by any device credits lost as a result of early cancellation) for the remainder of the contract term. If you cancel in the last 6 months of your 24 month contract, you can either return the device to us or make an offer to purchase it at fair market value (which we’ll advise at the time). If you choose to return the device, you’ll pay $99 if it’s in good working order or a damage fee of up to $499 if it’s damaged.

Mobile TV and Music Streaming: All for use in Australia. Fair Go Policy applies. Stream SD video up to 1.5Mbps & music up to 512kbps. Some streaming services require paid subscriptions. Streaming services subject to change at any time. Content such as ads, authentication & app analytics are excluded and will incur data charges. Streaming services may not have apps available on all mobile operating systems. Suitable for one stream per service on mobile & tablet devices only.

Optus Sport: Personal viewing in Australia only. Content and features vary by device and sport. Sport coverage is available as long as you remain on an eligible plan and Optus has the rights. Optus Sport is a month-to-month subscription, which will continue until you cancel your subscription or you move to an ineligible plan. Where your plan includes Optus Sport at no additional cost, your bill will show a $15 charge and corresponding credit.

National Geographic app: Fair Go Policy applies. The National Geographic app is a premium product available for customers who are 18+ yrs or 15-17yrs with parental approval for viewing in Australia on eligible Optus mobile plans on selected iOS and Android devices. Activation may take up to 24 hours. App includes selected magazine content. App is exclusive for 18 months. Visit optus.com.au/natgeo for more info.

National Talk Inclusions: Can be used for standard talk to Oz numbers, 13/1300 numbers and voicemail retrievals all within Australia.

See optus.com.au/international.

Data Pool: If you have more than one My Plan Plus (including SIM Only), My Mobile Broadband Plus or Mobile Broadband Business plan on the same billing account, the included monthly data allowance will combine into one data pool, which will be shared by all eligible services on that account. This data can also be shared with any existing Share Data Plan. Any unused data in the data pool expires at the end of each billing month.

Additional Data: Additional data charged at $10/1GB. If you use more than 150GB we may continue to charge you at the same rates or restrict your data use until next billing period.

Usage Alerts: Usage alerts are not real-time and delays of up to 48 hours may be experienced.

Minimum Total Cost: All minimum total costs assume orders are placed online. For all orders via Optus’ telesales numbers a $9.95 delivery fee may apply.

COVERAGE: With 3G devices, you can access our 3G (UMTS 2100 MHz / 900 MHz) network. With 4G devices and a compatible plan, you can access our 3G network plus some or all of our 4G Plus network.

Optus quick facts:

  • Optus supports WiFi Calling, allowing you to use a local WiFi network to make phone calls. This is great in areas where coverage is patchy.
  • Optus also supports Voice Over LTE (or VoLTE) which places called over the 4G network and lets you use the internet at 4G speeds while you are on a phone call.
  • Optus customers can make HD Voice calls with a compatible smartphone. These calls are much clearer than standard voice calls.
  • Optus often has one of the best new phone ranges available, usually in excess of 20 models to choose from.

What do you get with an Optus Mobile Phone Plan?


Similar to the other big Australia phone service providers, Optus phone plans are packed with extra features and bonus offers. In general these plan features are available on all Optus plans, but there are exceptions, so make sure you keep an eye out for features you want when selecting a plan.

Optus Sport


Optus customers wth a My Plan Plus phone plan get exclusive access to all 380 English Premiere League football matches each season via the dedicated Optus Sport app for iOS and Android. On top of this, you can also watch live Cricket Australia matches too. 

Optus Sport is included for free with phone plans of $45 or more, and on certain home broadband plans.

Data-free video and music streaming


While other providers might give you a limited-time subscription to a single streaming service (like Apple Music) Optus customers get to stream content from a huge number of these services for free, including Netflix, Stan and Spotify.

Data-Free Video and Music Streaming
Plan Type Video Streaming Music Streaming
Phone Plans Yes Yes
No Contract/Monthly Yes Yes
Prepaid Up to 10GB
(Ultimate Plans)
Yes

Data-free streaming is available on all Optus postpaid phone plans, including SIM Only plans. If you choose an Optus Prepaid Ultimate Plan you get free music streaming and up to 10GB of video streaming each month. 

Data sharing


If you have multiple Optus postpaid phone plans on the same account you can pool all of the data from these plans together and share it across all of these services. This is great for families where you might have a single high-data plan and several lower cost plans sharing the data pool/. It is also a great idea if you use multiple internet devices, like phones, tablets and laptops.

International Phone Calls


Optus is one of the more generous providers for anyone who needs international phone calls as part of their phone plan. Most Optus phone plans include at least some international call credit, with several offering unlimited calls and SMS.

Included international calling destinations include: Austria, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.
