I keep getting charged $5 "number share" each month apparently for the apple watch. I live chat customer service however the person says they cannot remove it - I have to call up every month and have it credited back. Doesn't seem right to me.
I spoke to the Customer Service rep a month or two ago and he credited me back, however each new bill has the $5 charge on it.
Can this please be stopped as I don't use the Apple watch "number share" and I don't want to keep contacting Optus every month?
@A45A351, that's strange.
The Number share add-on is a month-month feature.
Did we even mention if there was a system issue preventing us from making the change, or did we simply advise that it wasn't possible to remove?
Apologies, I re-read the chat transcript from I had via live chat regarding this $5 charge and the customer service rep said he will escalate this to try and get it fixed, and would leave some notes in the case for future reference (never mentioned it was month-to-month or why it was so difficult to remove). I've copied the main parts of the transcript below from late September. It doesn't contain any private information and i've removed the Optus reps name for privacy. To date, I'm still getting charged the extra $5 fee.
Thank you for your help and prompt response.
