Optus Live Chat & Messaging

While calling Optus customer service can only be done during their business hours, Optus Live Chat and messaging service is available 24/7.

The Optus Live Chat is available to everyone on the Optus website. To use the optus live chat without the app, simply visit the Optus website and wait a minute for the chat bubble to appear in the bottom right corner of the page. Once it appears, click on it and type: "speak to an agent".

However, if you are a current Optus customer you can also use your Optus login to access the Optus messaging service which is available on your My Optus app.

Using the Optus messaging service instead of the live chat allows you to retain your conversations, be notified when an Optus agent responds, and check back in at any time.
