In obtaining your mobile service from Us you agree to the following:

  1. If the service is cancelled, you will be required to pay us: Any usage charges incurred up to and including the cancellation date.
  2. All mobile plans have a minimum monthly access charge. Your monthly service charge will be billed in advance, each month, for the term of the agreement.
  3. Your mobile service may include a call, text or data inclusion only applicable to eligible call and messaging types.
  4. If your plan includes a Data inclusion, it can be used for internet and email access from your mobile handset. If you exceed your plan included monthly data inclusion, an excess usage charge applies unless you are on a capped plan. Any unused Included Data is forfeited at the end of each billing month.
  5. Data usage will be counted in megabytes, where 1 megabyte (MB) is equal to 1000 kilobytes (KB). Unless we specify otherwise, your data usage applies to download and upload.
  6. You must pay for any calls, text or data that do not form part of your plan inclusions or any excess call, text or data usage over your plan inclusion.
  7. You may upgrade your plan without incurring a plan change charge. However, if the monthly access charge has a lower access fee and/or inclusion than the plan you are currently on, that change would be defined as a downgrade.
  8. Your mobile plan comes with value-added features that are either activated by default or which you may elect to add to your service. Additional call, text, data and purchase charges may apply if you use these features.
  9. If your SIM card is lost, stolen, damaged or requires replacement, a fee and postage charge applies.
  10. We are unable to guarantee mobile coverage in all areas. Therefore, if you relocate to an area that has no Optus 3G/4G/5G coverage and wish to cancel the service, an early termination fee may apply if you’re within your minimum term.
  11. The data speeds available to a particular mobile customer are affected by many factors; actual speed rates are not guaranteed and real-world speed results may vary and may be slower. With any network based on radio technology, local conditions may prevent or interfere with mobile reception within coverage areas, e.g., inside concrete buildings, lift wells, basements, tunnels and road cuttings. High-rise buildings may also suffer degradation of service and our coverage maps are not an indication of in-building coverage. There are several factors that may affect speeds, such as distance from the mobile phone tower, the capacity and load on the mobile phone tower, the network currently selected, your hardware and software, the source of your download/upload, and general internet traffic. Different speeds will be achieved at different times, depending on congestion, location, local conditions, hardware, software, and general internet traffic. The service is furthermore subject to network availability.
  12. We will endeavour to warn you via SMS when you are about to exceed or have exceeded your plan inclusions. We receive information regarding usage and may display such records via My Account up to 72 hours after the event. Therefore, we are not able to immediately warn you about heavy usage. You are responsible for any usage irrespective of any warnings.
  13. If your mobile handset or SIM card is lost or stolen, you must notify our customer service team as soon as possible so we can IMEI Block the device and disable the SIM card.
  14. Data usage records in My Account may be delayed by up to 72 hours. However, records of some events, particularly International Roaming events, may not be available until after the relevant billing month. You are liable for such usage even if we only become aware of such usage events after the termination of the mobile service.
  15. If an ‘Included Data’ amount is stated in your plan description, it does not apply to International or Roaming data.
  16. International Roaming allows you to use your mobile service while overseas. All International Roaming usage charges apply as additional charges. Some devices are not compatible with networks in some countries. The International Roaming feature is disabled by default; however, you can request for it to be enabled by contacting our customer service team or activating it in My Account if this is available to you. We cannot guarantee that we will enable International Roaming for you unless you meet our qualification process. We reserve the right to refuse the activation of International Roaming on any mobile service. If we believe, after activating your roaming service, that you may be a credit risk, we reserve the right to disable International Roaming on your service without notice to you.
  17. All international roaming usage charges, including call, text message and data charges are charged in additional to your normal mobile inclusions, and at a higher rate. You can check individual roaming rates by visiting the mobile section of the SpinTel website. Information regarding your roaming usage can be delayed up to 48 hours (or more) and you will not receive usage notifications. You should not rely solely on the alert service to monitor your usage. Some devices are not compatible with networks in some countries. You will need to check your mobile band details to see if the device can be used internationally. When activating the international roaming feature the call, text message and data components of your service will all be activated, you cannot activate an individual option.

    You will be billed for international roaming in arrears. There may be instances where it may take several months for roaming usage charges to appear on your bill because we must first receive and process usage information from third party networks overseas.

  18. Premium Services (inclusive of Premium SMS) are content or live advice which can be accessed via a mobile phone call, SMS or mobile data connection. These numbers usually start with a 188x, 19x or 190x prefix or an international access code. Premium Services are disabled by default on mobile services and if enabled attract a variable call rate depending on the content provider. These rates could be a once-off fee or ongoing. We set a maximum limit of $50 per calendar month, per service.
  19. If supplying your own mobile handset, you must ensure that it is unlocked and compatible with the Optus 3G/4G/5G network prior to activation.
  20. You have thirty (30) days to activate the mobile service either by calling us or logging on to ‘My Account’ and following the prompts. If you do not activate the mobile service within thirty (30) days, we will cancel the mobile service and charge you a $10 termination fee as stated in the Mobile Standard Pricing Table.
  21. When transferring your mobile number from another service provider, we'll send you a once-off verification code via SMS to the number you wish to transfer (port).
