    Couple of questiosn to Orange users

    Hi HUKDers

    Looks like I managed to bag the great Orange Blackberry 9700 £20 deal yesterday and now thinking of puttung my elderly Parents on Orange as well, but as they have a very strange useage patern I would like to know the following from real customers - not what Orange will tell me to try and sell two new contracts......

    Do Orange bill by the second or round up to the nearest minute?

    I know that O2 bill by the second with no minimum call charge (i.e. first minute) and I also know that Three (3) round up to the nearest minute with a one minute minimum.

    Also can you completely turn off Orange answerphone - so that if thre is no answer it just rings out?

    TIA

    Billed by the second. Don't know about the answerphone, but you probably can't turn it off.

    of course you can turn off the answer phone through phone settings

    Oh okay sorry, thought it would be a network thing, never seen the option before.

    thanks generaloneill - thats good news - do you know if there is a one minute minimum - eg if you call someone and voicemail kicks in and you just hang up is this charged as one minute

    many thanks

    I have been with orange for 5 years and think they are great. If you have a contract with them you get a 5% discount on your monthly contract price every year you stay with them and also got an upgrade on free minutes when they upgraded their deals

    O2's Minimum Call Charge:
    Please note, the standard minimum call charge of 5p for Pay Monthly or 10p for Pay & Go applies unless otherwise stated.
    † 1 minute minimum call charge applies.

    I guess that is if you are out of allowance

    all my O2 bill just show the duration and 0.00 cost if in allowance and then are all totalled up

    when I was with three if you hit a voicemail and hung up you got 1 full minute taken from your allowance!
