So,, after reading all of this we don't appear to be any wiser as to what exactly Orange are offering, seems to be a case of how they feel at the time you phone.
But what I wanna know is I'm not due an upgrade for months yet, so has anyone managed to get the Orange World Unlimted added to their account WITHOUT doing an upgrade.
I tried this about a week ago and could have had it added (without an upgrade) except that I am technically not a 3G customer - which you have to be.
They wouldn't make me a 3G customer as I don't have a 3G handset, even though I said I could get one. You have to _become_ a 3G customer via their system issuing you a 3G handset. I only recently had an upgrade so wasn't going to pay silly money to get another one right now.
So in summary, although I didn't quite manage it, yes I'm sure you can have this added on without upgrading as long as you are on a qualifying tariff.
