Re: re-contract

Optus have what's called the New Phone Trade Up deal now which is where at the 12+ month mark you can hand the phone back in good working condition, pay $99 and start a new 24 month contract with a new phone. 

 

It's standard in plans now I just don't remember how long ago that happened so I'd jump onto chat and ask if you're eligible for that - http://yesopt.us/chat2us

Re: re-contract

You're half way through the plan.  $900 sounds like $450 or so for remaining handset fees and $450 or so for the monthly plan fee. Optus usually only charge the handset component with possibly a pro-rated break fee. Who told you $900? We're they referring to your specific contract?

Re: re-contract

Hey kazzy,

 

As SamSam highlighted, your plan will have the New Phone Trad Up offer built into it. Info on this can be found here. The reason why you're quoted $900 is because you're not yet 12 months into your plan. After the  10/11/17 you should be able to pay $99, return your phone in good working order and go onto a new 24 month iPhone X contract.
