Orange SIM-Only - Panther £15.50 and £20.50/mo on offer at Orange - Now £10.50 & £15.50/mo (£6.33 & £8.83/mo after cashback) - inc Blackberry version

qyestionmarkqyestionmark

Panther £15.50 - £10.50/mo 12mos (offer) - 300mins, unltd txt, 500MB - £50 cashback - eff. £6.33/mo
Panther £20.50 - £15.50/mo 12mos (offer) - 600mins, unltd txt, 500MB - £80 Quidco - eff. £8.83/mo

Note that Quidco suggest on their site that the cashback rate on Panther £15.50 should be higher than I've shown. This has been double-checked with Quidco and they have stated the cashback is on the DISCOUNTED plan amount. See msg 50 for more information.

Orange have indicated that these two packages can support Blackberries at no extra charge. Once you have ordered your SIM on-line (to get the cashback) you will need to contact Orange to clarify that you want the Blackberry version.

    I was just updating the Cheap and Cheerful SIM-Only deals page and found that Orange have a couple of good offers at the moment!

    Perhaps this is compensation for T-Mobile's big price hikes?

    It isn't entirely clear to me which cashback level you'd get. I have put the LOWEST cashback figure in, but it's possible that the cashback is actually higher than this. It would depend on whether it's on the pre- or post-discount level?

    Good prices/reductions, but personally I feel that it's hard to beat the GiffGaff tariffs - especially now that they're giving (a small) cashback via Quidco. It's also only a one-month contract.
    Not voted either way!

    There are nearly always better value tariffs than Orange, however Orange and T-Mobile are the only reliable signals in my home village, so it doesn't leave me much choice. I'm grateful for people posting deals that are the best value for those particular networks.

    If you've got a daughter with a blackberry the orange rekombu deal at £8 will take some beating, this one looks great for Son at £6.33 per month

    £10.50 deal with £50 cashback makes this a good deal.

    30 minutes on hold to T-Mobile to get my PAC code before I gave up. Is that their strategy for keeping customers - just don't answer people who wish to leave? Jesus!

    Cheers OP - decent contracts here. I wanted to change to Orange for a year to get £5 off my Orange Home Broadband bill. Come the end of the 12 months I'll be off to GiffGaff or someone who provides truly free mobile data - 500MB is a joke if you enjoy streaming Internet radio like me. Need to save the pennies right now, so it'll do.

    prrobably not,however it takes about a week for the sim
    then I think you get about 14 days to return it.
    so if you waited long enough it would take you near to the end of your tarrif

    personally i am extremely disappointed with orange, i live and work right in the middle of newcastle and lots of times i have no signal/3G while friends on other networks have full signal and internet (e.g. three)....

    I will not be renewing with Orange after the recent mid-contract price hike. When people price this up, they should allow for a 4-7% increase in price which Orange could impose at any point.

    Having said that, there is not much trust left with the other UK mobile operators...

    O2: Send number in plain-text to every website visited. [1]
    Orange: Increase fixed contract price by RPI through use of dodgy contract clause. [2]
    Three: Place a non-payment flag on my credit report for no apparent reason. When I realise years later, they remove it and don't even apologise.

    I'm running out of operators which haven't negatively impacted me, and to be honest, I think some of the blame must land with OFCOM.

    Would not touch Orange with a bargepole easily one of the worst customer services i have experienced !

    Called up T-Mobile and was offered better deals on my existing (out of contract) subscriptions:

    £7.50 for 600Mins/Unlimited Texts/Internet (which they've reduced to 500MB for customers now, but they don't charge for going over it or rigorously enforce it - something to watch out for in the above Orange deal) - 12 month contract
    £8 for the other contract on my account with the option to change it at any point, 24 month contract

    Worth calling retentions if you're currently out of contract with T-Mobile as they've increased all their prices but seem willing to reduce them via the phone if you're a little persistent. I've had MUCH MUCH MUCH better experiences with T-Mobile customer services than with Orange who have messed me and others around in the past. Happy to stick with T-Mob at this price.

    Cheers again OP!

    I'm on the same T-Mobile deal as you except with 3Gb worth of data. This month after just 20 days I've already exceeded my allowance by 1Gb but it's still going strong without any (additional) restrictions being placed on me yet.

    Do Orange allow for Visual Voicemail on the iPhone? Currently still on the rolling £15pm deal, unlimited data (no cap), unlimited txt and 300 mins.

    Beware of sim only contracts on Orange as the free minutes do not include Answer phone service.

    I dunno. I pay £15.64 for my contract every month on Virgin Mobile (who default to Orange when there's bad reception) and I got a £120 phone (at least, I sold it for that much) on a 24 month contract and to get a similar deal, I'd have to pay £20 to Giffgaff every month without a phone.

    Granted, I don't get truly unlimited internet or truly unlimited texts but I don't use that many texts and I use Opera mini so I very rarely go over 1GB of internet. I remember when I did go over, I went over and I got charged 50p but that was only because I downloaded a 200 odd MB file for my PS3 because I had no internet for about a week

    Personally, I'd say that O2 have the best customer service in the industry and Giffgaff should give you same or similar levels of customer service as O2 if that's what you want (The reason we'll happily pay 50p more each month for broadband)
