    Orange Wednesdays

    We are going to the pictures tonight - and its about two years since we went...

    Do Orange Wednesdays still work?

    Do credits on Orange phones expire/what is the minimum credit you can buy (as I will never use it for calls)?

    All I need to do is find the sim to shove in the phone or add credit to it if the thing still runs.

    You used to text them 241 (two for one) and the second person got in free on Wednesdays. Well - for the cost of the text - which was 12p or thereabouts.

    yeah you can do that but it costs 35p for the text. Free if you call 241 then press option 1 :thumbsup:

    Thanks everyone.

    I have found an Orange sim - but its not my old one - and is one I got with a phone I use on Blyk.

    It only has 1p credit - but the call worked - but no text has arrived yet.

    Is there a minimum balance you need to receive texts, or perhaps would you also need to have registered or used the sim previously.

    I guess it could also be there is just a delay in replying - as I am sure in the past it took quite a while one time for the text to arrive.

    If you're on orange broadband you can register any non-orange phone too

    The text never appeared with the 2 for 1 offer

    Any chance of someone calling as its free and sending me a message here with the number which I can text to myself?

    (Rep waiting).

    Alternately - what is the minimum top up you can put on an Orange PAYG phone?

    Original Poster

    Got a £5 top up.

    Anyone wanting a voucher in the future send me a message and I will call them for you, and forward their text to you - but as advised above you will need to name my number "241" so if they are checking the sender.
