There's a new offer today on the Orange Monte Carlo / ZTE Skate, if you buy it online from the Orange website.

Add the phone to your basket then select the pay as you go plan you want to use, and they'll add £100 free credit to your basket.

I don't know how the free credit thing works, sometimes they do this by giving you £10 a month rather than the whole lot at the start.

I now wish I'd waited instead of buying it when it first came out.

Like you said there are lots of strings attached to the free credit....personaly I use GiffGaff, they're unbeatable....
I wonder if they'd accept the free credit in exchange for the sim unlock code...:D

Their prices are about 3 times more than giffgaff so works out to around a £33 saving, for free, vs immediately switching to someone cheaper? Better than a kick in the teeth.

My finger was poised on the "buy" button until i read that......in fact i might just not buy any new mobile in disgust now. (i wanted to swap out the sim from my SF put that in the skate and swap the news sim to the SF for my son... )

Im mightily confused by Orange, their shops seems clueless and thier web site confusing. I just want a skate, cheap as possible as a Customer (sim only) surely they can entice me in some way!

I was a bit upset to read about this offer when I had literally just walked through the door with my brand new San Fran. Didn't particularly want the Monte (bigger screen but no higher resolution so just a battery drain), processor speed not that important for what I need etc but thought £100 would be nice.

That said, Orange were never going to be handing out £100 top up vouchers to be slapped on ebay were they! That said this is a bit of a piss take even by their extraordinary standards (although the advert is entirely correct and accurate unfortunately) and I suppose if you were a PAYG customer this might be a reasonable way to go.




Cheers
