Who's left Orange for T-Mobile?

41 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.

yer telling me... I noticed towards the last few weeks of my time there that things were getting really slow. No customers, and getting harder to meet targets.

As soon as my contract is done with Orange, I'm joining Tmob.

10 years, if you include my PAYG years.

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

I now have a MDA Vario :) good schtuff - means I can develop bigger/cooler apps for you guys - battery life is poor tho :D

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..... :)
