EE Wednesdays (now available to ex-TMobile customers too)

Posting this as it's not just 'Orange' Wednesdays anymore, couldn't see that it's been posted before either.

Some films just have to be seen on the big screen.
That’s why as an EE customer you get 2 for 1 cinema tickets every Wednesday.

MOBILE CUSTOMERS

There are two ways to get hold of your 2 for 1 tickets, and they’re both dead easy:

Download the EE Film app. Then request your code from the cinema section.
Or text CINEMA to 60005 from your EE mobile. You'll get a text straight back with your code.
Enjoy the film. When you get to the cinema show text ticket to the nice man or lady at the box office and you'll get your 2 for 1 cinema ticket.

Text tickets cost 35p. Participating cinemas only. Terms apply.

It costs 35p to get the 2 for 1 ticket code sent to your phone. Was it that way when it was just Orange?

thanks :-)

Yes.

Not sure why it doesn't wok for you crazyfazzy - do you get anything back?

miikeyblue

Yes.



Ah. That'll be why my local cinema does a 'buy one, get another for 35p' deal. I'd always wondered how they came up with that figure.

Yes it was and you could also get 241 at PizzaExpress on the same day.

I'll never get used to "EE Wednesdays." It sounds wrong. It will always be Orange Wednesdays for me.

nice one

Oh if nobody knew, you can get this if your landline is with orange but your mobile isn't. Just text JOIN (landline number) to 60005

I got a text saying I'm not eligible for it I'm a t mobile customer.

I'm an EE customer but this doesn't work for me.

I installed the app, entered my mobile number and then received the pin number. When I enter the pin number it says -

"Problem retrieving voucher. Sorry your number is not recognised as a 4GEE customer number"

The deal doesn't make any mention of needing to be a "4G" customer?!?

Terms & conditions make no mention of it either, expired for now.

I don't think it's possible to be an EE customer if you aren't a 4G customer... Any 3G contracts are via Orange or T-mobile (technically part of EE of course, but still run separately for the time being).

I'm not a 4G customer but my phone says "EE" on the top and I'm with T-Mobile.

Just tried this and received reply... "Sorry your number is not recognised as a 4GEE customer. EE Broadband customers send JOIN & your landline number to 60005. Orange mobiles text FILM to 241."

Confusion reigns then, nice one TMobile, clarity is obv not your strong point!

I get this: Sorry your number is not recognised as a 4GEE number. EE Broadband customers send JOIN & your landline number to 60005. Orange mobiles text Film to 241.

If you have a contract with T-mobile then you are a T-mobile customer.
If you have a contract with Orange then you are an Orange customer.
If you have a contract with EE then you are an EE customer.

It REALLY couldn't be simpler...

I understand all that but what's causing a lot of confusion for people on 3G T-Mobile is that recently their network operator name, which appears on the home screen of their handsets, changed to EE. So they now appear to be EE customers just like those on 4GEE.

No need to try and be a smart arrse.

Here's a blog made by a forum member which details how to get free Orange Wednesdays for non-Orange / 4GEE customers via the app.

michaelpegg.co.uk/blo…ch/

can't confirm but i would imagine "FILM" to 150 would still work for non 4G customers

It sounds like you need a 4GEE contract which only offers 4G phones (LINK) otherwise you will be paying extra for nothing. I just think they are way overpriced.

I can't find the app...what's it called? Good deal, heat added

You have to admit though, if your phone displays EE as your network provider (as all orange and t-mob handsets now should), you would think that you are an EE customer...

Has anyone worked out how to use this with Orange Broadband yet? It worked perfectly before with the app and now iIt refuses to acknowledge me as a customer after texting JOIN to that number quoted.

Clearly many people don't understand that...

Though regardless, I don't think I'm an SFR customer every time I go to France, or a Belgacom customer every time I go to Belgium. Or in fact a Vodafone customer when my Talk Mobile phone occasionally displays that instead of Talk Mobile. If you have a PAYG phone you buy Orange or T-mobile top-ups, if you have a PAYM phone then you get billed by Orange or T-mobile. I hardly think pointing out that you are a customer of the company you are paying for the service, not whatever logo or strap-line is on the screen, makes me a "smart arrse".

Maybe some people get easily confused, but if you have an Orange sim card and pay Orange (ditto with T-mobile), and get a text saying you are not an EE customer, common sense dictates that you aren't an EE customer...

Are you on T-mobile yourself? Or Orange? Or EE?

On these first two networks a text was sent to the phone stating "Your 3G network is now powered by EE, you will notice your network change to EE on your phone"

So it is not so unreasonable for these customers to think that their network now falls under the umbrella of EE and that they may be entitled to some of the benefits EE customers get. Your comment was heavily sarcastic and whilst you may not think that makes you a 'smart ****' it was the thought in everyone else's mind.

Callum it says EE on my phone. This offer is supposedly for EE customers? I agree, it couldnt be simpler but not according to TMobile.

EE is insanely over priced, if i was to switch it would be for sim only deal, cheapest being £36 for 500mb which would be eaten in seconds, FAIL.

T-Mobile and Orange. While it may not be wholly unreasonable for them to think that the network name on their screen saying EE means that they are EE customers (though as I said, I don't think I'm a Telstra customer when I roam in Australia, or an SFR customer when I roam in France...), the fact that they have a contract with Orange, are billed by Orange and are told that they are not an EE customer STILL confuses them is rather unreasonable in my book... Maybe I'm just a genius, but I hardly think it's rocket science.

You only can get cinema offer if
1. Your contract Is orange brand!
2. If your on EE 4G plans paying extra.

If your on Tmobile you Don't get it.

So Callum, what is your fantastic response to this then?

http://i47.tinypic.com/9un3ia.png

Whilst you may not think you are an SFR customer when you are in France.. you are not being billed by SFR, you are simply using their infrastructure.

Orange and T-Mobile customers are now being billed by EE as can be seen in the picture above.. so does that or does that not make us EE customers?

Mine doesn't work and I was on t mobile and now it has changed to EE 3G and when I text to get the code it doesn't work

I got charged for my text and got a reply saying im not an EE customer. What bs.

Just to re-iterate what has been said by those above, If T-Mobile has chosen to merge us with Orange to become EE customers, then we should be entitled to the same perks. Also, just to say that maybe they've given some of our bandwidth to 4GEE customers as I feel that my 3G speed has dropped since 4G has come on line (superior>inferior)...not fair, hope they rectify that soon for both issues

...if you go on the odeon website it states in the T&C's that this offer is only for those on Orange and EE 4G.

I send a text FILM to 241 and get free tickets
