i had an Optus mobile number before traveling the globe only to return home to find out my number is cancelled, gurantiined and send back to Optus after a 6 month period.
Can someone plz guide me the process of getting my old number back.
Some providers like Telstra or Voda gives a new connection IF the old number is still available.
Whats the procedure with Optus..how can I find out if the number is available ?
Happy to pay extra charge for the same number.
Hi @Sahan, it depends on how long ago the number was disconnected. Generally, once the number is disconnected it goes into quarantine for 6 months where it cannot be assigned to anyone and then it is made available. So if it has been more than 6 months then there is a possibility it might be in use by someone else already?
