NGPriest: Optus and PDF Conversion

Ξ July 16th, 2009 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Author: NGPriest |

I was on the phone with one of my friends helping them to design a business lgoto when one of my phone rang.
Turns out they were monitoring my usage and said i was spending lots of $ on international SMSing?
Well, i pay $xx per month and i get $50 of OptusToAnyone and $50 OptusToOptus.
Well, i was in a hurry, so i just asked them to email me the info and got this in my inbox
I tried to convert it from PDF to JPG, since you can’t view it if i embed it on this blog.
(Also, is Optus calling anyone/everyone who uses their products? I thought i got caught with the tethering info/data below (or because i enabled tethering on my iPhone 3GS without paying for it))


This is the file converted online
Looks messed up, doesn’t it?
But at least you can read the fine-print
This is the file, that i manually made
The only problem is low resolution, higher resolution requires more time
(Both were cropped by me, original document has “cut” marks)


Let’s see

  • Spend $5, get $20 <– 1:4
  • Spend $10, get $50 <– 1:5
  • Spend $30, get $180 <– 1:6

SMS’s for Post-Paid are $0.50 compared to $0.35 for Pre-paid

  • Spend $5, get 40 SMS or 1h 5m 30m (Home) or 49m (Mobile)
  • Spend $10, get 100 SMS or 2h 45m 30s (Home) or 2h 4m (Mobile)
  • Spend $30, get 360 SMS or 9h 59m (Home) or 7h 29m (Mobile)(Rounded down to the nearest 30s)

    Based on:
    0.27 Flagfall
    0.30/min Home
    0.40/min Mobile

    I was originally going to change my plan to a higher $/month, but this might be a good idea, since the next plan was going to cost me an extra $30/month for $280 OptusToAnyone

    Wait, $30 for $180 (International Value Pack) or $330 (Cap Plan and $300 OptusToOptus)

    I think i might get International Value Pack

    1. I can get $5/10/30 IVP instead of a $+30 Cap
    2. If i bring my Cap from New -> Current, i’ll have to pay $100, since i’m still on a contract
    3. Also cheap if i ring people, Cap uses normal International Rates

    Okay, what else was there?
    Waiting for betajuice (from Miratopia) to finish finalizing everything with the new clients

    • Hi honey.
      Guess what I did at work today?
      I wore a bomb.
      A nuclear bomb in a field of flowers.
      I could get lucky.
      Tomorrow I could have a bigger bomb.
      I could kill more people.
      Maybe they'll be innocent people.
      Children, maybe.

      But it's not the same without you
      Because it takes two to whisper quietly
      The silence isn't so bad
      Till I look at my hands and feel sad
      Cause the spaces between my fingers
      Are right where yours fit perfectly
