    5 free SMS texts a day for life sim card. Doesn't require topping up. Worth anything?

    Okay, so i've got one of those Orange 'Out here' sims - the one from c.2001 with 5 free texts a day for life and it doesn't ever require topping up. (I haven't topped up in about 5 years - it's had 6p on it all that time - lots and lots of texts have been sent though!)

    So, is it worth anything?

    I would put it in the sales/trade section but I don't know what to ask for it or if it's worth it. Could be worth, £1, could be worth £100. Got no clue. Any ideas?

    Well i have no idea either to be honest mate. but you can send free texts via the net ect... someone might be willing to pay a few quid. but not a 100 lol

    5 texts is pointless, I send that in a few mins.

    Well, 5 isn't pointless if it's for a spare phone kept in the car for emergencies, or given to someone who barely uses a phone (like a parent or grandparent), or a kid to show them how to use phones without them being lttle sh*ts and using all their credit on ringtones and porn!

    I send a thousand or more a month - so it's clearly not going to be of use to me - hence the reasoning behind thinking of getting rid of it!

    i think you would probably get about £5 if your lucky

    its only 5 tts so only good for a emergency backup

    I'm not out to make millions (or even a hundred. lol), I was just sifting through my drawer and found it at the bottom. (along with a faux leather crocodile leather southern comfort hip flask! lol) It might work with the 241 orange wednesday thing - so I might keep it anyway as i'm on 02 and it'll save a few quid.

    Just remembered - it also works with phones abroad. (BIG MONEY SAVINGS! lol)

    I know you was joking

    I used all the five texts sending them to my other phone just to see if it was the right sim. lol - got 5 sims here and i'll be damned if i remember which one does what.

    i'll check tomorrow if it does the orange wednesday thing - but if it does then i'll prob keep it to be honest.

    he he, I am feeling a bit sleepy after embarrassing myself like this.

    Conclusion of enquiry: worthless. unless it has some worth. then it is less worthless.

    Night y'all!
