Thanks Peter, it wasn't unmetered data but rather a slow dashboard update on Optus part. It did eventually catch up with the usage shown on my phone just before the data reset which was just as well otherwise I would have started the new cycle with 2GB already used. 🙂
Hello @Al123, sorry for the slow response! Alerts, top up messages and updates to My Optus App or My Account usage information can be delayed up to 48 hours. Further information on this can be found on our Website here. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
Data pool is a myth with Optus. I have two valid post paid plans. Optus system can't link the two somehow.
So, yeah, OPTUS DATA POOL IS A MYTH. Don't bother calling, chatting, facebook, etc.. Just save yourself the frustrations.
OPTUS DATA POOL IS A MYTH. THE OPTUS SYSTEM IN PLACE PREVENTS DATA POOL FROM HAPPENING.
Hi @4J, really sorry for the experience. Data pool is certainly not a myth but I can understand form where you are coming from. We're upgrading our systems and because of this one of your systems may be in old systems and the other one in the new one. we can still get your data pool done. Please contact our billing Here and request data pool. Please let us know here if there are any hiccups.
I called, I done live chat, yes crowd, followed links, transferred calls many times, you name it I done ALL.
Still nothing. Only to be told can not be done.
No way I am going to repeat all that again.
So, convince me Optus is good to do business with.
Hey @john_symons, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Can you please send me a private message with more information into your data issues? Please include your account number, full name and DOB so I can follow this up.
