Just to let you know in case others are interested that i phoned Orange today for a deal for my 75 year old mum. Just phoned straight through to an Orange operator on 450
She has been on PAYG for years and £10 would last her 6 months but now she fancies surfing the web on a mobile phone!!
I was offered 400 X network mins + unlimited texts + unlimited landlines +250mb internet per month all for £12.50 per month. And remember magic number with an extra one every 6 months. This contract was for 18 months. Same offer for 24 months was £10 per month.
They also added in a free Nokia 2730. Ok for a spare phone but this will probably live in a drawer and not get used. Tried to get a different phone but they wouldn't budge on this!
Not bad an offer in my opinion. My mum was chuffed with the result. My kids are really annoyed and can't wait for their contracts to expire and hopefully get a new one at half the price of their existing ones.
