Frequently Asked Questions

You can check your Prepaid credit, balance, expiry date and data usage via My Optus App or view other options.

Transferring a phone or service number between phone companies is called 'porting'. The following steps summarise what needs to happen if you want to keep your number and transfer it to Optus.

  • Head to optus.com.au/activate and have your new Optus Prepaid SIM & some ID handy
  • We send you an SMS to verify your number transfer, so please keep your current SIM in your device.
  • Enter Your Details and be sure they match the details of your current Mobile Service Provider's record
  • Select Keep Your Number when you've reached the Your Number section in Step 3 and enter your mobile number

How long does the porting transfer take?
You can activate online at any time; however a number will only 'physically' switchover during the times/days shown below. So if you make a request outside of these hours, your service will remain active with your existing provider until the next business day and then switchover. Switching normally occurs within about 20 minutes, but can take up to 4 hours during these times.

Monday - Friday: 08:00AM - 08:00PM

Saturday: 10:00AM - 06:00PM

What will it cost?
Sometimes if you cancel a contract with another service provider early, they may charge you a fee. Be sure to check with your existing provider as Optus is not liable for any fees incurred as a result of you transferring your service from another carrier.
