If the leased phone gets damaged it needs to be repaired by Optus or the original phone manufacturer (e.g. Apple or Samsung) or you may be charged a damage fee when you return it to us. The fee for repairs will vary depending on the nature of the damage (excluding warranty and customer guarantees).
Note: If you have the device repaired by the manufacturer, please request a receipt detailing the repairs completed. This is important because if you choose to upgrade after 12 months or when you return the leased device to us at the end of your lease, Optus may request proof of repair.
