A Pay as you go sim card from Orange?
I recently swapped my contract phone for a Pay as U GO sim card from Orange, simply because I was out of my contract and had changed jobs - my old phone was also used as a work phone so I cancelled and opted for a "SIM Only" package.
I've got a new sim card, new number etc -
I topped up my new sim at the start of July with £30.00 - I was told this was how much i needed to top up to get "unlimited texts" (dolphin?) or £10 for 300 texts. Anyway, £30 seems fine, i get unlimited texts and so many minutes, im not sure exactly how many.
I got a text at 11pm saying I have 0.88p remaining on my account and to text back with the last 4 digits of my card etc. .
I cannot contact customer services, when I ring Orange they tell me to call back in the morning.
Its the first time I have been on "pay as you go" but I assumed that if I topped up £30, and got the benefit of unlimited texts, and 300/600 minutes whatever it is? then my balance would be £30?
or do I top up for £30 ( same as paying a contract ) then that £30 turns to £0 and I get the same?
I assumed that the £30 would go towards calls, and be used as credit? - I cant ring the helpline as its shut, is it just easier to stay on contract?? - seemed like a good deal if it is what i thought it was? pls help a fellow MT
