Who's left Orange for T-Mobile?

43 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

OK, so how many people here have actually left Orange to go to T-Mobile (or other networks) because of the new tariffs?

(same poll running on Modaco - please only vote in one!)

I haven't left yet, but only because T-Mob don't currently have a phone I want. As soon as one appears I am gone, gone, gone.

Myself and the husband left Vodafone in January and February respectively. Both of us went to T-Mobile. Gotta love those data allowances!

Unlimited data for ?7.50 is what attracted me then I saw how good their Flext plans were - then they give 25% off! Then they gave me a phone and CoPilot which I sold for over ?270.

Orange, on the other hand, wouldn't even give me a 3G USIM - I had to take out another contract to get one.

No regrets leaving O for T especially after seeing their new "animal" tariffs!

not been paid under the new scheme mate, dont think it's gonna be much cop though :)

no one senior will take any notice of the everyone's general consensus - the new tarriffs SUCK!

anyone comes in and says "flext 35 - what can you offer against that?....a magic number" sure we'll lure them into 18 months with that...

The unlimited data is what's swinging most people on here and modaco I think - especially with DirectPush Mail nuts like myself :)

More power to T mobile I say

BNow on Fext 25 + webn walk unlimited - ?32.50 a month!

Orange tried to "upgrade" me from an N70 to a w810i when I said I wanted to leave to "thank me for my custom".

I then explained that I don't want to be thanked at ?75 a month, thanks VERY much!

left orange (early) 3-4 weeks ago after, AGAIN, a screw up in their bill and shocking offers.

left 2 months early before the contract ended - didnt tell them just cancelled my DD. They were meant to take the payment last week but obviously its been cancelled so they cant but the wierd thing is - the orange sim is not deactivated...yet!

wayhay - free calls/txts/mms without me paying lol

Oh dear, how poor is the battery life? I've not heard this complaint before. This can't bode well for the Hermes / Vario II - faster processor + WiFi etc must mean higher power use & even worse battery performance. I thought I'd seen the last of use-it-charge-it inconvenience when I dumped my E200.

Until Orange send round the debt collectors, and destroy your credit rating for life.

YAY! CLEVER!

As for power consumption, I'm getting at least 2 full days (48 hours) with:

Hourly email collection from 3 accounts,

Push between 7am and 6pm (calendar updates at least every 30 mins),

RSS feed downloads every 4 hours,

Weather updates every 2 hours

PDA use (writing emails etc)

Hell, I even made a phone call the other day!

I don't use BT or WiFi much these days, that sounds like the killer on the Prophets so I would expect the same here.

Just got my PAC code from Orange yesterday (with some problems - see other new post) - they made no attempts to keep me on. Their loss. :)

Now will need to contact T Mobile to transfer my number over.

You've spent 3 days without making or receiving any calls on your phone?

I can buy you some friends if you want..... :)
