I have a contract with optus and I want my mobile which is with Vodophone transferred to my account with optus.

The phone you have must be either fully paid by you or you must have paid up your 2 year contract on that phone.

You need to give Vodaphone one months notice of termination of contract. Or you can carry on paying it without using the service.

Then you tell Optus you want your current phone putting on their network. You will need to give them your phone number and your phone's IMEI number. They will send you a new SIM card, or you can do it all in a shop if they have one.
