    My wife just called Orange CS retentions saying she had found a better deal on T-Mob for upgrading - they asked what it was, said "that sounds good" and are sending her PAC code!

    Are they not doing deals on the new phone? To be honest it wasn't much better than what she already had from Orange CS, but without the

    I'm not surprised you got such a good deal considering the amount you spend with them!! ;)

    My wife has been with Orange for 9 or 10 years, bills always paid on time (direct debit), but usual monthly bills have been

    I just changed from Orange to T-Mobile. Had the Diamond - was due an upgrade and Orange were not interested in matching T-Mobile. :rolleyes:

    They gave me the PAC code with no argument though. :)

    Edit: The 3GB W&W+ allows tethering in the T&Cs - Orange does not. :D

    Well that didn't go so well ;)

    Just spoke to retentions - they absolutely wouldn't budge on data. Turns out as my wife is leaving Orange I won't be able to keep that magic number. He added on some minutes so I'm on 1000 but I've no idea if that will cover it... Then he said that the girl I spoke to yesterday added a 10% discount that wasn't available, so I was going to have to pay

    Whelp, just had a conversation with Retentions and they've basically said that there is absolutely no 3gb data package on Orange for mobiles. None at all. Zip, zilch, nada.

    Hmm.

    To be honest I'm scared that they will tell me what I've just signed up for is a mistake so I'm leaving them well alone at the moment! :D

    Funny though, shame I don't get a reward for being with them 13 years! (Sept 96 I signed up for my first Nokia Orange 5.1!)

    I'll see how it goes - I may get nowhere near the 500MB of data...

    Well, on my second call (to retentions) I was told that the first quote I got from upgrades was a mistake - I'd been given a 10% off that I shouldn't have! So when I called for a 3rd time (to upgrades) to be told it was cheaper than on my first call I checked all the details and bit their arm off!

    Time will tell!

    I have Wifi at home and my brother who has had a Hero for a couple of weeks reckons that it doesn't affect his battery when he leaves it on (unlike my TyTN II!).

    Anyway, I have coped on 30MB/month for 18 months, so hopefully this will be OK.

    I did plenty of Tethering on Orange with my Diamond and they never complained but it was in T&Cs that you were not supposed to. :eek:
