I use access numbers to dial international numbers via my mobile - now in the past these use to use my inclusive min's so in effect they were like free calls.
Well that is now no longer the case so a recent call to South Africa set me back just over £5 for 30 mins ( glad it was not more - but it could have been ! )
Seems like Orange has changed there T&C's
Tariff Terms and Conditions changes
In line with other operators, Orange have updated our terms and conditions for a number of our offers and promotions. Calls to 07744 and 07755 numbers are not included in bundle and will be charged at a flat rate of 20p/min. These changes are applicable to ALL existing Orange tariffs, both the animal range of tariffs that is currently available and all tariffs that are now removed from sale.
For specific updates to the current tariff terms and conditions please click on one of the links below:
* Offers and Promotions - PAYM Animal Packages - clause 5
* Offers and Promotions - SIM only Animal Packages - clause 7
* Offers and Promotions - Unlimited Bundles - clause 6
The changes will come into effect from 8 June 2007.
I have phone Orange up as I am a bit miffed to say the least especially as calls made at the beginning of the month were not charged but the last few have been. They will credit my bill for the total of the call charges to the 07755 number I have used.
Would have been nice to have been told.
