I think the only place for your device is this one.

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Hi @Dan_C

 

I have a question - how does one order WITHOUT having to buy another modem.

 

I have two B315's at home (current Vivid subscriber) and I cannot not get a single Optus rep instore, on the phone or online (via chat) to allow me to activate the $80 500gb M2M plan WITHOUT buying another.

@Dan_C

 

I tried to sign up to M2M 500GB yesterday at my local Optus store (Carindale QLD).

I have an approved device B315 locked to optus network already via Vivid.

I was turned away as I was told that they can only sign up these plans with the modem in the package.

 

Seems that I'm not the only one with issues (see @CeeDee73 reply below) trying to get this.

 

Can you provide some more info?

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Just wanted to leave another eeply to advise I've managed to secure the $80 500GB WBB plan sim only as I have a device on the eligible list above.

 

The trick seemed to be to provide a link to this post to the chat consultant and insist it's pssible.

Initially, I received some push back when trying to get this as a SIM only. Hopefully that helps others

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

You should just be able to put the sim in and turn on the unit. Thats as complex as it got for me with my device.
