Dear Mal

If you are the team leader, it must be a sorry team -- say 6th division?

I have your letter of 22nd but it gives no evidence of your having read the letter you are replying to.

I REPEAT: gives details of options that expire no later than 30 days.  That's 30,  30,  30.  How often do I have to repeat it?

SO AGAIN:  where do I find a link that gives me 6 months to use the recharge?

Surely I don't have to refer the matter to the TIO simply because you are too much of a numbskull to read a letter!

Yours etc

Letter to: Prepaid mobiles, Optus

Dear Sir,

I recently attempted to recharge my Optus prepaid mobile 0423 248 ***

To my surprise, on checking online I found that your offers there have a maximum life of 30 days. When I first signed up, 6 month and 12 month expiry plans were available

By dint of about 10 minutes of button pushing, however, I was able to get a 6 month expiry recharge per phone. I started out calling 555 and then got referred to 444. Option 3 seemed the most relevant choice offered by 444 but when I pushed that I got told to piss off. I eventually tried option 2 and that worked. Amazing.

Please advise the internet link that will enable me to get an online 6 month recharge next time. I am a bit deaf so phone transactions are slow for both me and your operators.

Yours etc

Dr John Ray
