As of 26 April 2017, we’re reducing the number of hours of operation for our Fixed customer service team so that we can improve our customer experience. From 26 April 2017, our Fixed customer service line will no longer be available on Saturdays so that we can allocate more staff during peak times on weekdays.


Of course, you can still contact us via Live Chat which is open from 10am-9pm on Saturdays and Sundays and 8am-11pm on weekdays. Or alternatively you can use our self-service channels, My Account and My Optus App for online help at any time. Technical support also remains available 24/7.


If you need to contact us, please head here.

What a fantastic idea, reduce service hours in the week following the release of a new phone. 1 Million kudos to the genius who thought that one up.

Yes OPTAS why not Service customers 7days a week 

what a cheap idea !

Currently sitting on hold for 92mins and 04secs... to find out why i have been over charged. Setting an interesting benchmark that should only get worse once there is less chance to speak with someone.

eNuff and when you do get through they'll probably tell you "thats the job of xyz team, their hours are 9 till 5 M-F"

Hey GeoffreyL, sorry for any confusion ans WhoIsAtlas mentioned this isn't affecting our Mobile Customer Care team, their hours of operation are still: Mon - Fri: 8:00am- 7:00pm, Sat: 9:00am - 5:00pm & Sun: Closed.
