This evening I upgraded two existing, off-contract Optus mobile services to the $40/m (online-only) SIM plan (with 15GB data). Both services are currently still working fine, and I can see that the plan changes went through fine when I login to my account. The curious thing to me is that Optus added a new SIM card to each order when checking out and I couldn't do anything to prevent this.
My questions are:
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Thanks for reaching out to us about this.
We do send out new SIM cards as they can wear out over time and we recommend changing them every two years to ensure you're connection is well maintained.
You certainly don't need to change to the new SIM cards and not changing won't cause issues with your connection.
If you were to change SIM cards this can take up to 4 hours and the only interruption would be when the old SIM stops working and the new one starts.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for that I may look at changing my Sim card when I receive it but it's good to know that the one I have is okay
Hey @ronpenny, that's not a problem. You can always request for a new Optus SIM card at anytime from your local Optus retail outlet.
