Went into 2 orange shops in Cambridge, and neither had anything displayed about a special deal, similarly no price change on the web.
I understand a retention deal, but why sell a phone cheaply, if the only way you get the price is by attempting to buy it at 149 ???????
I went into Orange Bury St Edmunds and they had the OMC on display clearly priced up at £119.95. So I got one!
