Re: App on Telstra phone for mobile broadband

So at first you say its a Telstra phone, but then you post on the Optus community....

Then you say its a 200Gb plan - except Optus only offers that plan with a single device and its not a samsung j1 mini (telstra supported)

 

Optus has an app for usage, but I dont think it shows mobile broadband plans at all, only actual mobile service with VOICE.

 

You will need to clarify some things as per above before we can assist.

Re: App on Telstra phone for mobile broadband

I think the "(telstra supported)" is referring to the app. I.E they have an Optus mobile service with an Optus phone but have installed a Telstra app that allows you to monitor Telstra Mobile Broadband. Can you confirm if I'm correct?

Re: App on Telstra phone for mobile broadband

Hello,

 

Thank you for the claification.

The Optus App available on mobile phones only monitors the mobiles attached to the service you are using.

It also does not show usage information for the Optus Home Wireless plan that you have.

 

The only way to see usage information for that is to log into your Optus account online on their website to see usage.

No, you can't use the app for what you want to do at all. Optus' app is only for mobile phone users. It never has information in there for mobile broadband, home broadband, home wireless broadband etc. You'll need to use My Account unfortunately.

Mobile broadband data usage will show via the My Optus app if the mobile phone is on the same account and sharing their allowance.
