She has unlimited texts on her Orange contract but does anyone know what the fair usage policy is for Orange?

On average she sends 3,000 - 4,000 texts a month and is coming to the end of her contract.

I didn't text much more than 250 texts a month till I met her, now I text about 1000 / month because of her :oops:

thats 177 texts per day!

OMG! The worst bit is they could probabily have that 5500 text in a 1 hour conversation but spent about 100+ hours texting?

I thought fair usage was 3000 text, what was their bill that month if you don't mind us asking?

Get her on HUKD!
I'd love to seee her post count!

I've sent 1000 in a week at one point.

or 11 texts an hour (assuming she sleeps 8 hours a night), I've already worked it out and told her. She says she texts that much because she can! Go figure.

I haven't seen the bill personally but I think she pays in the region of £40 a month (500 minutes and unlimited texts?) I thought 3000 texts was right but then I thought if that was the case she would have been contacted by Orange by now...

Nah, then she'll see find out how much I paid for some gifts I bought her... :roll:

Is she single?............ If she isnt i feel sorry for her fella!!!

[COLOR="Magenta"][SIZE="4"]Hi
My kids are on unlimited texts, orange and o2 say unlimited is roughly 3000 a month

my kids constantly texts and i've never been over the contracts:thumbsup:[/SIZE][/COLOR]

:thumbsup:She must have massive thumbs! :thumbsup:

Hundreds of text messages could be saved if people actually 'SPOKE' to one another.

TXT1: 'Hi what U up to?'
TXT2: 'Watchin TV. U?'
TXT:1 'Nowt much'
TXT1: 'Whats On'
TXT2: 'Same old'
TXT1: 'Oh'
TXT2: 'What U doin later'
TXT1: 'Duno'

etc.. etc.. etc..

I get unlimited texts with 3 which is a 4000 limit & 500 any network mins for £25 pm inc VAT
I send about 2000 per month.

I think I send over 3000 some months but my bills don't tend to vary that much (unless I download games etc!). Don't think I've sent anywhere close to 5500 though!!!

So unlimited isn't unlimited!?!?!?

never is!!!


i think ur gf needs rehab lol i send abou 700 and my oh whines im alwas on it :-D

fair usage is 3000 texts otherwise you are charged 10p exta for each text

If they have gone over 3000 before have they been charged?

:w00t:

i send over 600 texts a month and i thought i was bad!

:w00t:

I thought I was bad!

'Unlimited' in my opinion, should be unlimited! Why should thier be restrictions on 'unlimited' texts? Why not put 3000 texts a month or however many texts you can do.....blooming phone companys :x

Yeah I have this deal with orange and its 3000, I usually send 500-600

I get 300 free texts every time i top up on o2 payg... I occasionally use them all, but not often!!

5500 in one month is madness!! lol

Even 3000 a month is 100 texts a day ffs! lollll

flipping heck-does she do anything else all day?!?!?!?!?

It's complicated but let's keep it on topic.

They haven't, no and they haven't had any phone calls from Orange either.

Totally agree, they should just advertise it as 3000 messages but I guess unlimited sounds better.

Well she has a college and work but that doesn't normally stop her texting.

Orange fair user policy is 3,000 texts.

lol - your network provider must love you!

Get a blackberry and send PIN messages (instant messaging that's free) or emails.

her thumbs are now stumps. What network has the greatest number of texts allowe din the fair use policy?

She has since upgraded her phone but was previously allowed to send up to 9999 messages a month, she'll soon find out if that's still the case...
