So that begs the question why do Orange let it happen? Oh yes, because they get to make extra money from contracts people don't need and then pass the blame onto a third party. How convenient.

Not exactly on topic but it is service related, kind of...


There email service is CRAP!!!!

The online service through the web browser works 50% of the time and the POP service is the same.

It used to be very reliable but now.......you know the rest!! :) :D :P

The online account service is also hit and miss. Call me paranoid but I remember a year or so ago Orange did a survey about the email service asking if people would miss it if it were discontinued. I think it's an expense they DON'T want. Make it CRAP, nobody will want to use it. Trouble is they are doing this with the network too. Make the network crap.....................bloody french, they've always hated us!! :D

I must admit, I've never had any trouble using half of their email server :)

I only ever interrogate my Tiscali a/c via POP3, which is fine because that's direct from Tiscali's servers. Sending via the POP3 needs to go through smtp.orange, which, if I'm honest, I've never had a problem with.

I can hardly believe I've said something nearly-nice about poor old O :D

Although i work for the 'nasty' Orange lol (i do like my job), please beware the cold call dealer i work in data Support and i even have to field calls from customers who have been mi-sold contracts and need to get out of them.


I would agree "beware the cold call dealer" and we have. It has taken them two visits and a lot of confirmation phone calls before we decided to go with them. I work in IT, so I'm used to cold calls from distributers who promise the earth but only have plant pots :)

If I'm in a 'told you so' situation in 12 months I will come back and tell you

O business deals still seem OK and they seem to want to keep higher spenders.

You have an M5000 and only 25Mb of data? Keep an eye on your usage, I was using 50-70Mb before push email which is one of the reasonsI went to T-Mob.

Hopefully you have the deal you want and it will be fine - at least you got the M5000 :)

25Mb I aggree is not a lot, but looking through our bills (we had the Orange World ulimited WAP access for ?4 a month) we rearly went over 10Mb a month with two M2000 on the account. I realise with a 3G phone you might be more tempted to use it more but I shall control my self... well after the first few days anyway.

As for push mail... I may set it up demo purposes to clients but as a rule I will collect email when I want it as I do now. Also not syncing all your folders and leaving your desktop machine in Outlook to filter the junk all helps. The other thing will be to continue to use the WAP pages of sites , TfL and national rail, BBC news and even modaco, all saves band width.
