I thought this was common knowledge, but from the constant stream of requests in the misc and for sale boards, I thought I'd post this:
Go here: http://www.orange.co.uk/time/dialup/
Go through the signup process, fill it in truthfully or not - up to you, but make sure your mobile number is accurate, and remember your email address and password you use. Signup is free, and you don't need to use the connection - although your account may get deleted after 250 days (just make another)
Go here: http://web.orange.co.uk/p/film/orange_wednesdays
Select Broadband Customer (it includes dialup as well)
Follow the instructions, and once does your mobile will act as though you are on orange - although you have to text 80241, rather than 241 like on orange.
I've listed the instructions below so you can see how easy it is:
find your unique user name
First off you'll need to register with us, using your unique user name. Your unique user name is the part of your Orange email address that comes after the '@' symbol. So if your email address is [email protected]
, your unique user name is smith.orangehome.co.uk. Or if your email address is [email protected]
, your unique user name is slade.freeserve.co.uk. The same applies to Wanadoo email addresses.
register for Orange Wednesdays
Text 'JOIN' and your unique user name (the bit after the @), to 80241 to register.
So for example, JOIN name.orangehome.co.uk
get your 2 for 1 cinema tickets
We'll text you back, confirming you're registered, and that's it - you're done. You won't have to go through any of this again.
To get your tickets, just text the word 'FILM' to 80241 and we'll send your text tickets* straight to your phone. Simple.
enjoy the film
When you get to the cinema, just show your text ticket to the nice man or lady at the box office, and you'll get your 2 for 1 cinema tickets.
*text tickets cost 35p
