Important Notes: *Coverage: Optus 4G Coverage (for 4G compatible devices): The Optus 4G Network is available in selected areas of Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Surfers Paradise, Brisbane CBD and Perth. Check coverage at optus.com.au/4Gcoverage. To access the Optus 4G network you need a compatible device and plan. Outside 4G coverage areas compatible devices will switch to the Optus 3G dual band network. All voice calls use the 3G dual band network. When within a 4G coverage area, your data session may also access the 3G dual band network. Depending on your usage type and the coverage area you’re in, your 4G device will automatically switch between the 3G and 4G networks. If you lock your device to the Optus 4G network, you won't be able to make or receive voice calls, including emergency calls. If you lock the IMEI number (for example, in the case of where you lose your phone), it can still be used for 4G data sessions. International roaming is only available on 3G and your 4G device will automatically switch to 3G when you use international roaming services.
