Optus AutoRoam™ is a great tool to keep you connected when you're travelling overseas. Do the things you do when you're in Australia, like sending and receiving SMS or making voice and video calls, thanks to Optus' roaming partnerships with carriers in over 170 countries. (Video calling is available in over 40 countries).


Optus AutoRoam™ lets you use your voice, SMS and video call services on selected overseas mobile networks with which Optus has roaming partnerships. When you arrive, your phone will automatically view available networks so all you need to do is connect via your handset. You should not have to change your phone settings.

Video Roaming is not available in all countries or on all networks.

Please use our Global Roaming tool to check which services are available at your destination. If your mobile phone hasn't automatically connected you to one of these networks, you'll need to select the network manually by following the instructions in your mobile's user guide.


In order to make roaming calls you will need to enable your mobile account for AutoRoam by contacting Optus Customer Service.

Voice roaming is available in all countries where Optus has international roaming in place. Some countries and networks may operate on a frequency that is not compatible with your Optus handset and you may therefore need to use another handset. A quadband handset can normally be used in almost any country. To view network frequency details for your destination use our Global Roaming tool.

For video-call roaming you will need a handset which supports video-calling and you will need to be connected to a carrier at your destination which supports video-call roaming. To view which services are available at your destination use our Global Roaming tool.
