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.

Entertainment 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. Some streaming services require paid subscriptions & may not have apps available on all mobile operating systems. Not suitable for HD quality video.

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.

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.
