Sim Data Plan 140gb + Can I use mobile phone as modem ?

Hello I am interested in the Sim data plan 140gb/$70 p/m.

 

I have a prepaid mobile from vodafone (currently used just for data with vodafone) and an unlocked Samsung J2 (Phone and data with Aldi/Telstra Network). Am I able to use these phones as my modem with the optus data sim plan 140gb/$70 p/m or do I have to get an optus modem or unlocked modem ?

Hmm providing the phones are not locked to a specific network and they have a tethering option  I can't see why not. I have used an Optus mobile sim in many different wireless devices however I have never tried a data only sim in a mobile. Might pay to have a word with support about that.

Optus are happy for you to BYO(Equipment). The only question is if the euipment is locked (on one you said no)
