I am disgusted with Orange! No android version in sight
Thats saved me a trip to orange.
Wow, just did some research.
They also provide a "your orange" iPhone app:
I am extremely angry.
im a bit lost here
its a UK network.
Come on now - you don't need an app to text 'Film' to 241 ...
Don't get angry. Ask them when they plan to release the Android version ... then get angry when they say they're not
I know, its just the attitude. Its like the attitude of phone companies here in the UK, in America they are really pushing it, but not at all here.
Seems like there's a gap in the market for an "unofficial" Orange Wednesday app
Am i missing something here.
I have a bookmark which lets me see this info
With Your Orange, managing your pay monthly or pay as you go account on your iPhone is easy.
It lets you:
check your account information free of charge
get help and support on how to use your iPhone
view information about Orange services
via the web for free on Orange.
The account info doesn't load for me on my phone, heard it occasionally does for some people, I'd love that app tho.
The main problem is the android ignorance.
Edit: An official orange source has let me know that they are looking to develop it for "other platforms", and gonna do some digging regarding an android version..
As has been mentioned it's a UK network. They do this pretty cool special offer called 'Orange Wednesdays' You basically get two cinema tickets for the price of one every Wednesday if you're on Orange. It's very popular over here.
That's rubbish, just 'coz they get the iphone they push it. I remember seeing iphone stuff on their website well before orange were given it. And some of theor staff dont even know what android is.
Regarding the orange bookmark if it didn't show you the info go to orangeworld home then click you account again. Sometimes you just need to refresh it, sometimes its actually not available
Was on the phone to Orange last night and was promised a call back. Did they call. No. Now if id been having problems with an iPhone I bet the whole company would have called. Same problem last week Friday was promised a call - didn't get one
And now they release apps for iphone when they have had and been selling android for longer.
Another thing... is the iphone on orange branded like the orange Hero having logo and other crap on it ?
Pathetic ain't it. Orange have had android for ages
Let's face it.
iPhone is WAAAAAY more popular than Android.
You can't blame Orange for rolling it out to the bigger market
Doesn't mean I have to like it. I get better support from this forum then I do from Orange.
Im currently in the hate orange phase of my contract. Not calling back twice and stuff like this, their support not knowing what android is . not knowing how to use the phone. I'm sticking with android but next phone may not be on orange
On a unrelated note I've just noticed I'm no longer a member but now a senior member
I work for Orange. It is due soon.

Twitter / Conor Maples: @ravmania Yep - we are dev ...
Our plan is to Cover all major phones that can run an "App"; yes this applies to other Apps we have on the go.
It looks great, like the iPhone, but with an android twist, expect it to work on all Android devices.
Should have mentioned, that was from conorfromorange too.
And now for the good news.
From April the first Orange are giving you unlimited Internet.
And for the bad news.
Only for new customers and those that are upgrading their talk plan.
"Unlimited" (500meg or whatever it is at the moment) or "UNLIMITED" (fair usage) or some other variation on a theme of "not really unlimited but infact really limited to some random number we think we can get away with until our customers relaise and start to leave again"
psh, i've been on unlimited for 3 months, last 3 months averaged nearly 2gb for the
The sad thing is, you actually believe this to be true..
(Obviously these stats come from before the new range of HTC phones got into peoples hands, so it's likely that Android is already ahead, looking at the projected growth).
Sorry, +1 Iphone is waaay more popular than Android. Those are Admob statistics not general market share.
Besides Admob were trying to merge with Google last month so you can take that with a pinch of salt.
