Not sure this has been posted but if you want to grab an early upgrade on Orange, aside from the usual haggling with retentions to get free phones and munutes etc you can actually get money off your remainig contract

Orange says:

We'll give an exclusive 33% discount on your remaining monthly payments if you move to EE, 15% if you stay with Orange. You can also get some money back by recycling your old phone.

Not bad if you want to go for an 4G phone!

Terms and Conditions

If you are a SIM Only customer on an 12 or 18 month contract or a pay monthly customer on any other type of plan, and are more than 6 months into your contract with more than 45 days to go before the end of your minimum term, we will let you upgrade onto a new pay monthly price plan with new phone if you pay your Early Upgrade Fee. You can't upgrade to a SIM Only plan. Your new price plan will have a new minimum term and you might have to pay to get the phone you want. This offer is not available for mobile broadband customers.

You are effectively throwing money away by paying off your contract at a slightly discounted rate. Worst thing is, your upgrade tends to be (not always) the standard prices that are seen online. so you miss out on any loyalty discount if you were to see out your contract entirely.if i have misunderstood the offer, please let me know. thanks



I did this last week actually, was a good deal for me.

Worth pointing out that you do not pay VAT on outstanding Orange payments. So my £36 pm contract meant I paid about £19 pm to pay off contract (for me was £187 for about 9/10 months). So the amount payable before Vat is £28.80 (the 33% comes off this).

I went for iphone 5 on 36pm EE contract (unlimted mins and text, 750mb data). Handset should of been £50 but offered me it for £20 with no haggling (offered over phone and instore).

So for me it cost me £207 to start a new 4g contract with an iphone 5 and can sell my HTC one X to cover most of that cost. So for some people its not a bad deal, although prob depends on your willingness to sell your old handset to offset cost.

I would also say, go instore, takes bout 30 mins and you are all setup, get handset straight away, and took a few hours for number to port over to new contract. Pretty effortless tbh.

OP I would update the title to mention the 33% is on top of VAT saving - will generate more heat I imagine

As in the post description, you can still haggle for good offers... I got 33%+ off my contract, a free iphone 5, unlimited calls and texts and access to 4G network with 1Gb of data on top of the usual orange weds, EE films, BT wifi... all for £31 a month. Worked out cheaper for me to upgrade early than keep it on the £47 one I was on (less mins, text and data)

Agree def worth haggling, you were a high paying customer though (£47 is def top end) and possibly with them for a while? I was only with orange 14 months or so, not really gonna get much of a deal. I think the £30 off the handset was pretty much my "loyalty" offer lol. personally 750mb is plenty, I used between 200-400mb averaged under 300mb almost every month. 4g is nice btw, really fast!

Upgrade ??????

You must be having a larf

Voted cold because there the worst company I've ever dealt with.

Moved from orange to an EE 4g contract a month ago and had nothing but trouble since with the signal, infact im at the stage now where I'm complaining to ofcom and the telecoms ombudsmen service to try and get the contract null and void.

Are you having a laugh it's the same service same masts same network. Different name and different call centres. Surely it's just a SIM card or phone problem?

Why would I be having a laugh? We have 2x iPhone 5's here, one with Orange one with EE, side by side at home the EE phone displays no service, I had no issues when I was with Orange, I've had a replacement sim and now I'm waiting on a replacement phone.

I have notice minor drops in signal at times in Edinburgh since moving to EE. But I think it's more a case of it changing bandwidths from 4g to 3g to edge etc. 95% of the time the signal is great and 4g is really fast tbh. it's still a new service, so will only get better with time. Utter pain though that you get no signal in your house, that's totally unacceptable.

Just been into EE and replaced my sim card, got home, same issue!

I don't see why a sim card would potentially fix that issue? Surely it would be phone or the network?

Exactly, I'm just jumping through there hoops until they reach a dead end and release me from the god awful company.
