For some unknown reason, our internet account number recently changed.
We were apparently advised of this by an email (which we never received). Our most recent bill also failed to arrive via email - so clearly, something has gone awry with the change of account number.
We did, however, receive the email advising that our payment was overdue!
Whilst I was able to log into our account online, I cannot download any bills. I spoke at length with someone via chat last week who assured me that all was fixed (something had shifted during the account number change) and that I would be able to download bills within 24 hours.
Alas, this isn't true. I have tried multiple browsers and still cannot see the latest bill (or any other for that matter).
I refuse to pay a bill which I can't look at. Can someone provide any solutions?

The account ID changed "not due to unknown reasons" but due to Optus upgrading their billing system to a tool called "Jarvis" which gives everyone a new ID.
If you are unable to access your bills, chat or call Optus to get them to rectify the access issue.

Hi, thanks for the response but you'll see that I have contacted Optus to rectify the access issue - to no avail. I've tried numeorus times but the "chat" option is always busy despite being 24/7.
And I stated "unknown reasons" as even Optus couldn't explain why they changed the account number when I asked them. So I figured if they didn't know, it'd be highly unlikely that someone else would. Glad I was proved wrong on that count.
Thanks in any case.

I just tested chat and it worked okay for me, got an agent fairly quickly and without any major hassles.

Chat function works reasonably well - have had to wait for 15-20 mins each time (trying after 8pm).
Very friendly agents but they can't actually resolve anything.
I've spoken to 2 more this week. Both of which assured me that my bills would be downloadable within 48 hours (they're not), both also promised to email the bill in question (still nothing in the inbox).
One did suggest that the reason I might not be able to download the bill is that it's sitting in the older system and due to the transition to the upgraded system which I now log into, the bill can't be downloaded. (Why it's listed then is beyond me, why show people bills that they can't download.... 🤷♀️ )
Still doesn't explain why they can't email me a copy. 😐

There may have been a delay due to the Public Holiday.
