Optus customers can select from a standard two-year phone plan, or lease their device via Optus’ Flex plans over 24 months. Leasing is cheaper, but you won’t get to own at your phone at the end of your two-year lease term; you can, however, upgrade at 12 months, for a $99 fee, provided you sign a new 24-month agreement.
