I am coming to the end of a post-paid contract (26th March) and am looking to change to the $40 12GB data sim-only deal which offer also ends on the 26th of March.
Just wanted to make sure that if I purchased that deal online before the 26th and activated it on the day that my post-paid plan expires (using my existing mobile number), that I would still get the 12GB and $40 deal.
Thanks in advance for any help!

You may find as you're so close to your contract ending it could be released early (excluding any MRO payments) and you could do it now.. I would however try via a Optus store as online stuff can be so regimental.
Hey CptCodes 🙂
caaf is correct, you can likely recontract to this plan now.
You're welcome to PM through your mobile number, date of birth and full name & I can check this out for you.
Thanks CptCodes 🙂
I've responded to your PM.
Hi, I am an international student. I am currently using optus $40 sim only plan with student discount. My post paid sim only plan is going to end on 20 December,2018 and I will be out of Australia from 21 December, 2018 to 8 February, 2019. What is the procedure for renewal of the contract on 8 February, 2019 if my post paid plan expires on 20 December, 2018.
Hey @Joyjit_Sunny333 - You have a few options if you're wanting to keep the number active.
You can pay $5.50 per month for us to suspend the service, this will keep your number active for a period of time until you come back.
You can also switch to Prepaid for that time, and recharge a small amount to keep it active.
If you're not too worried about keeping the number, you can cancel the service & apply for a new SIM with a new number in Feb when you return.
* if I choose the option to pay $5.50 per month, will I be able to renew the contract of $40 post paid plan with the student discount offer from 8 February, 2019?
* If I switch to a prepaid plan, will my number get inactive if I am out of Australia for about 1 month 20 days?
As long as you recharge regularly, it won't deactivate. Generally speaking with Prepaid it takes about 6 months of no use/no recharge prior to the number deactivation. Doesn't matter if you're overseas, same rules apply.
If you chose the $5.50 suspension, You're plan will just go back to paying the amount you were prior to the suspension, as you'll be out of contract, you'll have the option to switch to a different in market plan if you'd like.
