I have been trying to resolve a problem through live chat for over a week now with no results whatsoever. I have chatted to 7 people and spent many hours on the phone. I have twice been escalated to the tech branch and promised call backs which have not come. I was also given a number to ring by someone on the help desk but when I did so I found the number has been disconnected. I went into a shop today for assistance - no help there, and I spoke to another lady on a customer help desk who ‘tried’ to pass me on to a supervisor at my request but the supervisor was busy and has not yet returned my call ( 5 hours later). This would be funny if it was not so frustrating. Does anyone know how to contact someone at Optus that can really help?
I am sorry to say that is where this is heading. I don’t like to make a fuss but neither do I like to be ripped off and treated so badly. All someone needs to do is change the expiry date . . . A few seconds and the issue is resolved but instead I am doubted, queried treated like a liar and passed from pillar to post. Optus stand to lose a long time customer and a loyal supported.
Very simple on web chat go on between 9-5*
Ask for a supervisor or an SME (Subject Matter Expert) be persistent here, as they will keep saying give me a minute. Don’t be rude but say firmly “Your not understanding me fully , may I speak to your supervisor or SME etc info......”
If after two/three times times say “ I have asked numerous times please may I have the supervisor. It’s not you personally, it’s just I need a position of authority “.
You will receive it. Now the supervisor will do what they can if your not satisfied ask that it be referred/escalated to a
Customer Resolver Team (Optus specific problem solver)
and they phone you and they are Australian.
Now you mostly can only get this team if you have had more than two visits To opus web chat.
any problems feel free to message me directly and if I can help I will.

(*most time 9-5appropriate otherwise outside these hours a lot of the live chat goes to offshore SEAsian countries english being second language causing issues.
Hey @Val7127, it certainly shouldn't be this difficult to speak to someone and I'm sorry you've had to endure such a run around. Have you since been able to speak with someone? If not, please send me a private message with more information into your enquiry, along with your account number, full name and DOB. I'll run through the account notes and see what's going on here.
