Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Where did you get the B315 from?

That may be the issue, I know that the B315 that Vividwireless works, but if its outside of that then that may have had a different IMEI range then Optus has allowed.

IMEI is the unique identifier that provides detail to what hardware it is, Optus use this in the filtering for these devices.

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Nowhere does it say the devices must be purchased directly through Optus or Vividwireless's retailers.

As for them adding it - not sure on that side, seems an uphill battle.

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Hi, are those modems listed eligible for the current $65 and $85 plans as well?

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Seeing that they are the only Wireless Broadband plans then yes.

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Would it be locked by IMEI or by MAC address? Doing by IMEI would require some sort of device registration process when you BYO approved device. MAC would allow certain manufacturers (and maybe models, not sure) to be identified.

What happens if you change the MAC access on a non-approved device to that of an approved device? Would it work then?

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Its imei based, first 8 digits of an imei provide manufacturer and model of device.

Optus would use an Imei whitelist for devices that are approved, no registration needed.

Re: Optus Wireless Broadband eligible device list

Hi there, is there any way we can get some additional devices added to this list? Netgear has released some later model modems that are terrific performers such as the 790S (identical to the AC800S) 810S and later which I own and don't want to buy yet another device especially when the device worked fine when I tested them with a pre-paid SIM...I have tried both with the 500GB plan that I got a SIM only for and neither of them allow me to navigate anywhere other than to the Optus branded pages! If I try and navigate to another page, it complains I have the wrong SIM in the wrong device...
