I’ve been overseas away from my number for about a year. I want to have the same number when I arrive back in May but I’m not sure if it’s taken and won’t have the opportunity to go into a store until a week into me being back in Australia.

@EleanorRowe I have read in other answers in the Yes Crowd, Optus puts numbers back in the pool to be reused after 6 months.
Another factor that may stop someone having the same number is the number was originally issued by a different Phone Company and the person ported the number to Optus. if the account at Optus is closed the number would revert back to the issuing Phone Companies Pool.
