Hi

Just a query , I have been with orange for a few years currently on a contract where by I get 500 mins and 1 k texts for £25 a month, they have now offered me 3 months before the end of my contract £45 900 mins and unlimited texts. Has anyone else haggled and got a different deal, or are there anyothers on other networks which are better, as Orange do a deal to match those

Cheers

Orange retentions seem poor unless you are a high spender.

If you are happy with your inclusive mins and text, keep it and try and haggle a lower price for the tariff and/or a new phone if you want it.

Just bear in mind going for either = new contract and ensure it's a contract period YOU want.

Hi, well I need more mins on top of the ones ive currently use, the texts allocation I dont normally send 1 k of texts a month!
Has anyone used the three tariffs to get a better deal with their provider?

I'm not sure you can get more than 500mins without going onto a 18month contract, you should be able to get 700mins on Canary/Racoon 35 or 850mins on Canary Racoon 40

For 18x£35 or 18x£40 I would really try and get them to give you a discount on the tariff, but you haven't said if you want a new phone or not, which can really effect the deal you can get from Orange or elsewhere.

Also if you look elsewhere would you be disciplined enough to do cashbacks?

The offer given in the first post was for a nokia 6300 and the £45 tariff.

My last contract extension with them was for 12 months with the 500 mins etc

Some alternatives for you:

http://www.phoneboxdirect.com/ohandsetdetail.asp?handset=Nokia%206300%20Silver/Black

All require you to send back 5 or so cashbacks though but means the average rental works out at £13/month max (18x£13= £234 paid after casjback) and missing 1 cashback claim probably means forfeiting hundreds of pounds
vs. Orange Retention 12month contract of 12x£45 (£540 paid)

I just phoned orange they offered me 700 mins 100 txts unlimited calls to landlines for £15 or 900 mins 300 txts unlimited calls to landlines £25, all 18 month contracts
#7
if the £15/m comes with a budget to midrange phone il;d take it

if you want a new top end phone i expect you need to take the £25 deal

or were they both phoneless?
#8
Both tariffs come with the Nokia 6300
#9
Grab the £15/month one is my recommendation unless you want a top end phone and if it meets your usage patterns.

Also bear in mind this is 18x£15 = £270 cost (£180/year equivilant), whereas if you went to a cashback contract you could have 12months free on T-Mobile FlexT 35 (600mins or 1200sms or mix thereof) with a 6300 but means the hassle and risk of cashback and no broadband subsidy.

Also because both are 18month contracts you might want to consider moving over to Orange's broadband if ur not already.

Their 2gb package will be free for you, their unlimited package £5/month charged seperately which comes with livebox and free landline calls to over 100 countries via VOIP both come with 12months contract, but wouldn't matter for those on 18month mobile contract...

Currently I have Cable, I might be able to get any phone, I didnt take up the offer but they kept jumping back with other offers saying these will be gone soon...the usual talk
#11
If you don't mind Nokia's and want something higher spec than the 6300, have a browse through these:

and suggest the one you want? :)
