Data is used to help with learning, job seeking, telehealth, communications in times of crisis and staying connected to friends and family.

Donate your device You can drop off your old device at any Optus store, and through Good360 Australia it will be donated to an Australian in need.

Your phone will be cleaned and wiped of data before it is donated.
