Porting prepaid mobile number to Optus prepaid account

I've got myself into difficulties due to old age and ignorance. I had a prepaid Telstra account on one phone which I let expire a fortnight ago. I know that I need to re-activate this account before anything else. However, I already have an Optus prepaid account with a different number on another phone. I want to have my old Telstra number transferred to Optus and give up the other phone. Both phones are unlocked. How can I do this after I reactivate my old Telstra account.

Hi 

I think you will need to get a new prepaid Optus SIM and when you activate this SIM you can get the Telstra number ported over to this SIM. Then you can Chuck your old Optus prepaid SIM.

Hi

Thinking about you Telstra number it is still an active number, and will be for 6 months, so I don't think you need to do anything more Telstra wise.

Anyone out there knows differently please post.
