Paying out rest of contract and keeping phone number (Moved overseas)

I have moved overseas and I am looking to pay out the remainder of my contract and would like to keep my current mobile number as I wuold like to return to optus when I return back to Australia in 2018/2019. I believe I only have 1 month remaining on my contract however I can't see the contract under "My Contracts" in my account either

Re: Paying out rest of contract and keeping phone number (Moved overseas)

I believe the usual practice is to grab an extra long prepaid SIM. 

 

Optus Prepaid long expiry costs $60 and lasts 365 days (set a reminder somewhere to top up again then)

 

Note it appears Optus will keep your number active for 186 days after your credit expires before you have to charge again so you'd have 550 days grace for that $60
