Optus launches 'unlimited' Turbo Text deal for prepaid customers

Optus now offering Turbo Text; unlimited text messaging to five nominated Australian mobile numbers

Optus has launched the Turbo Text prepaid mobile service, allowing unlimited text messaging to five nominated mobile numbers on any Australian mobile network.

The Turbo Text offer applies to any Optus prepaid mobile customers who purchase a $30 recharge. The recharge (which expires in 30 days) includes the Turbo Text deal and $30 worth of credit that can be used for national and international calls and regular text messaging, pay as you go Internet browsing or international roaming.

To use the Turbo Text offer, Optus prepaid customers nominate five mobile numbers of their choice via the Optus Zoo Web site. The mobile numbers can be changed twice between each recharge.

Optus' consumer managing director, Michael Smith, said the Turbo Text offer was a result of customers tending to SMS a "small group of friends."

"Today, Optus launches a new rate plan that allows customers to keep in touch with their five best friends as often as they like," he said. "With SMS being a key feature for our customers, Turbo Text is a tailored offer that brings enormous value."

Optus is also offering 100 free SMS for new customers activating a prepaid service.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
