I am trying to log in to my Optus Zoo Mobile Self Care account http://msc.optuszoo.com.au/smssend and am trying to send sms messages from "Send SMS from computer". Then this error occurs. "idp.optusnet.com.au’s server IP address could not be found."
I have been on the phone to tech support for 50mins with no luck, they just keep putting me through to other people. I have had this account for 5 years and it has been suggested that I need premium sms, but I have never had it.
Would be grateful for some help. Thanks
Hi @PikkiStreet, our online Optuszoo is no longer in use for any mobile or premium sms inquires. We now have one billing platform My Account → page. If you still need further assistance then you are best to speak with our Support team via the → messaging service to assist you further.
Thank you for your response. This does not address my question. However after speaking/being on hold with Optus IT, it seems the answer is that Optus Zoo no longer support Optus Zoo. I will be going elsewhere to sms directly from my computer.
Hi all, I have had many 'chats' and phone calls since October 2019 with Optus assist staff regarding being unable to get to the 'send SMS message via computer' page (prev. OptusZoo....). NONE of the Opus assistants told me that this service is no longer available for optus customers. The first time I have seen this information is shown here in this Forum... "online Optuszoo is no longer in use for any mobile or premium sms inquires. We now have one billing platform My Account → page". The billing platform My Account → page does NOT have on it, the opportunity to send an SMS text message from a computer to a mobile phone. This is a great shame as this is a very handy option for someone who does not find using a mobile phone to send a text to be easy - a standard keyboard is much better.
