Extra Data Sim for Shared Data

Acki

Can you still get a Shared Data Sim without Plan?

Not that long ago you could get one for $5.00 with no plan or catches.

Currently have over 200 GB of Shared Data, But I can't seem to Get an Extra Sim without getting another plan which I dont need.

That would be very helpful. I have 2 post paid services, I just need one more extra sim for our home modem.

Hey @Acki, are you able to send us a PM with your account details? We need your full name, DOB and account number. I do need to clear up something first. If you have an existing data share service then yes we can give you a replacement SIM card. If you have an existing post-paid mobile service and you do not have a $0.00 data sharing card SIM - then we're unable to provide this to you free of charge.

 

At the least you'd need to sign on to our entry level mobile broadband plan → http://www.optus.com.au/shop/broadband/mobile-broadband/data-sim-card?SID=con:tab:3up:2:jun17:mbb:12.... That's $15.00 for 3GB of data which is shareable amongst post-paid services on the account.

Kind of seems funny though that if you already have plenty of data in your data pool that you are already paying for, and just want a data sim (like to use it in an old otherwise worthless Android tablet) , you used to be able to do that for a one off fee of $5, which seems reasonable. Now though, you have no choice but to pay $15 per month for that ability. Doesnt really seem fair... 

Furthermore, would you have to pay that $15 per month for each device you want a data sim for, presuming you have multiple devices you want to use?

HI  @Dan_C 

 

I am in a similar boat, on Plan ID: 800815/20069549 and would like to add a sim to my tablet to share my data. 

 

Can you tell me if i am able to add a second SIMto share my data?

 

Thanks For your time

You wouuld need either another mobile plan or a mobile broadband sim both post paid on the same account.

Their is no longer either $0/$5 data share sims - but at least Optus lets you share data between services unlike a few other Telcos.
