For details on how to activate an eSIM visit eSIM at AGL.

Activate your AGL physical SIM card

Your AGL SIM card will be sent within 2 business days in standard mail. It can take 5-10 business days for it to arrive depending on your location. If it doesn’t arrive after 2 weeks, please get in touch.

If you’ve ordered a new mobile number with your AGL service, you don’t need to activate your SIM, we’ll activate it for you. All you need to do is insert your new AGL SIM card into your mobile device. Activation usually happens on the day it arrives, but it can take 1-2 business days after arrival. We’ll send you an SMS confirmation once it’s activated.

If you’re keeping your existing number, log into AGL MyAccount when your SIM arrives and follow the prompts to activate your service. Activation usually happens within 1 hour, but can take 1-2 business days. 

IMPORTANT: Keep your old SIM card in your phone until it stops working. That's when you'll know your new SIM is ready for use.

For your phone to be compatible with an AGL mobile SIM plan make sure: 

Your phone is unlocked

To be compatible for AGL SIM plans, you’ll need a phone that works with the Optus Network and isn’t locked to another network.

Your phone takes a physical SIM or eSIM

We offer the choice of either a physical SIM card or an eSIM. The only way to order an eSIM is to contact us.

Otherwise, you can order a physical SIM card online. This will be a multi-fit SIM card, which fits most standard phones.

Carefully snap out the SIM card to fit either a standard, micro or nano SIM. To find out which size SIM card your phone needs, refer to the instruction manual for your phone or contact the manufacturer.  

For 5G plans you’ll also need:

  • 5G device.
  • 5G plan.
  • to be in a 5G coverage area when you aren’t in a 5G coverage area, your device will access the 3G and 4G Plus network as a backup. Check coverage.

International calls may or may not be included in your AGL mobile SIM only plan, depending on the plan you're on. For details on rates and charges, take a look at your plan's Critical Information Summary (CIS) and view our International Call Rates.

eSIM is the latest in SIM technology. It’s like an electronic SIM card built directly into compatible phones. 

There are many benefits to eSIM:

Fast activation

No more waiting around for a physical SIM to arrive. Scan the QR code in your welcome email and follow the prompts to activate your eSIM. It’s that easy.

Two numbers. One phone.

Depending on your phone’s capabilities, you can set up two numbers on one phone. For example, you can choose to have one number for work and one for personal use.

Kinder to the planet

eSIMs use less plastic and they don’t need to be delivered, making them a more responsible choice with less impact on the planet.
