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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
