My brother is thinking of porting over into Orange from O2 to take advantage of the Unlimited texts offer on Panther ?35.
He is after a 6280 handset.
I already have spare 6280 handsets myself, but fancy a look at a Nokia n80.
So he was gonna get one of these, have me pay the cost, and then swap with me for one of my 6280's.
Problem is, from talking to an Orange phone trainer, when I asked how quick he could get a NUK code so I could obviously use the n80 he gets with my O2 sim, I have been told that unlike O2, Vodafone, and T-Mobile, who will give you one after at most three months, for a admin fee, that Orange won't give you one until the entire 18 month contract has been paid up/seen out.
What gives? Is this true and yet another crappy example where Orange are lagging behind the other three Networks, or did the P.T. not know his stuff??
Also, is the unlimted texts offer, truly unlimited without caps or fair use restrictions?
Thanks in advance for any answers - though I suspect it is indeed just another example of Orange being behind the other Network's way of doing things.
