I've just spent several hours with three different Optus Chat folk without a resolution. I feel like I'm caught in a never-ending circle with no prospect of exit.
I'm trying to update the username to a mobile account because the email address it uses no longer exists. I don't seem to be able to update the username because it wants to send the verification link for this change to the email address that no longer exists.
I also need to update the credit card associated with the account. If I can't get into the account because I can't change the username (email address), I can't update the payment information, and Optus freezes the account.
Is there a way out of this (increasingly irritating) problem, other than cancelling the Optus account?
You don't cancel the account. You get chat to delete the My Account wrapper and start a new one with a new email address. Then you get them to transfer the postpaid accounts across.
Hey @Bron2 - Can you please PM me with your account number, full name and DOB so we can take a look into this for you?
Happy to see if we can help at all.
