Get a brand new smartphone in your pocket, your way.
You have the choice to buy a mobile phone on My Plan Plus, or lease selected handsets on My Plan Flex. When you lease, while you don't own the phone, you could pay up to $10 less on your monthly bill on some My Plan Flex plan and phone combinations, compared to similar My Plan Plus options. You can even upgrade to a new phone after 12 months for just $99, or $149 on My Plan Plus when you return the current phone in good working order and sign up to a new eligible 24-month plan.
Both options come with inclusions you'll love: data you can pool and share, and unlimited standard national calls and texts to Australian numbers.

- Can I transfer my current phone number to Optus?
You can transfer or 'port' your existing mobile number to a new Post-Paid Mobile Phone service. Simply fill out the details when you purchase from us.
- How is Optus coverage in my area?
- Can I move plans if I change my mind?
Yes, however fees can apply. If a change of rate plan, upgrade or handset pay out fee applies you will be informed before committing to the change.
What is meant by 'good working order'?
The phone needs to be in "good working order", when you return it either for an upgrade or at the end of your lease. This means the phone is fully functional - that is, it makes and receives calls and texts, connects to the internet, and is not physically damaged, except for normal wear and tear as reasonably determined by us. For example, the phone:
- Can power on and off.
- Has a fully functional touchscreen and battery.
- Is not physically damaged (e.g. does not have liquid damage, cracked, discoloured or bleeding screen (LCD) or casing, does not have any missing buttons or damage to other components such as charging ports or SIM tray).
- Does not have any missing, disassembled, customised or non-genuine parts (this does not affect your rights under the Australian Consumer Law).
- Is not cracked (including the touchscreen) and does not have any severe scratches (normal wear and tear such as light marks and scratches are okay).
- Has any locking features disabled (for example, find my iPhone on iOS devices).
- Is not IMEI blocked.
- Is the phone you leased from us under the mobile equipment lease plan.
You'll also need to make sure that the phone is in return condition. Make sure you back up your data and then delete your personal/confidential information. You'll also need to perform a factory reset and remove the SIM and any memory cards, plus disable all locking features. Additionally, you'll need to provide all documentation reasonably requested by us to help make sure the phone you're returning is the same phone we leased to you.
