Orange is just days away from revamping its pay-monthly packages, Reg Hardware has learned. On 31 March, Orange will "refresh" its Panther, Racoon and Dolphin packages, and bring back Canary. The mobile phone company would not comment on the changes, but detailed documents seen by Reg Hardware reveal all the imminent …
Nice exclusive, Tony
...and the sentence "Canary is replacing the current version of Dolphin" demonstrates perfectly the lunacy of Orange's tariff naming scheme.

Sorry, I will start again...
I received a text message from TMobile this afternoon. It is now cheaper for me to call just about anywhere in the world EXCEPT THE UK on my mobile.
Hang out the flags! How great is that?
Switched from Orange last week, after they told that that despite being a pay monthly customer with them for over 5 years, the plan i was on on "did not acrue any loyalty".
I promply showed then what loyalty was....
I picked up a HTC Hero from T-Mobile for £62 for the phone, on a £10 a month plan that includes unlimited internet (3GB fair usage), and one bolt-on of your choice (unlimited landline calls, unlimited texts, unlimited calls to other T-Mob) and comes with 100texts and 100minutes a month.
You can of course get a HTC Desire on the same £10 plan for £160 for the phone, and still enjoy unlimited internet and the unlimited texts or calls.
Basically Orange charge £25 a month for this, and have a dumb 500MB data limit.
My only fear of course, is that when Orange and T-Mobile merge, they don't become a decent T-Mobile, but a crappy Orange...
Marketing and BS
'digital tribe customers'
Oh for the love of god......
'digital tribe customers'
More like digital tripe customers
500mb of data
Wow, steady on Orange. Dont go overboard, I mean however will I use all that quota each month?
Good job I'm not giddy for numbers. Everyone else is offering Gb's of data - T-mobile 4gb/month!
You know I've been dithering over whether to jump from Orange after 11 years as a customer after their constant fobbing off and bullshitting me about when the Desire was going to be released, and constant 3g outages lately due to 'network upgrades'. Either go SIM free and pay my costs up front or go to t-mobile with some very tasty tariffs...
Decision made after having this confirmed by a friend who works for Orange. See you and I shall be taking all three contracts in my household with me too.
Just copy the T-M tariffs
Why can't they just copy the T-M tariffs? No animals just minutes, texts and data in various combinations with add-on special usage.
If the T-Orange monster ends up with Orange style tariffs I can see it becoming the 3rd largest UK carrier in 18 months.
