I am on a $85 My Plan Flex (with lease of iphone xs) and apple watch series 4 (sim linked) and will be heading overseas for 2 to 4 months in October to provide support for a family member.
If I suspend my plan/account while away, will I be able to periodically insert my existing optus sim to check for text messages from australian contacts and if yes what cost might this incur?
If I cannot check my suspended account, can I leave a message on my suspended account for anyone trying to contact me that directs them to email me?
I have seen mention that you can suspend your service.
It costs $5 a month - you need to contact Optus via webchat/phone for this
Your service will NOT work during this time as far as I am aware - as its suspended.
iPhones are not locked.
As your on a lease plan you are liable for loss/theft/damage to that device
