Right so im due an upgrade on my mobile, im with Orange at the mo, rang them and they wouldnt do me any sort of deal at all, even though ive been with them for nearly 15years!!
All they said was that they only look at the last 18mths as this was the term of my last contract, and as my line rental was so low, they couldnt do anything for me.
I was after the HTC Desire and they were just saying Ł150 for the handset and Ł30pm, just as any other customer.
So i rang around a few companies and ended up opting for dial-a-phone, even though I had a bad feeling about them!!
So they said we can do the same tarriff etc, but we can do the handset for free, so I said ok lets go with it, so the person I spoke to said, ive put one aside for you, will be with you in a couple of days!!
Happy days, so i thought, so i take a day off on day of delivery after getting an email to confirm its all good, so i ring them to confirm what sort of time if that can be set, and i just had to check if they had any in stock and to my amazement!!! Im told no we dont have any, havent had any for a few days and not likely to get any for at least another week or two!!!
So i lost it, told them to cancel my order and that i dont like being lied to, considering I havent even taken a contract or done a deal with them and they are lying already!!!
So thats it really, im not really fussed about upgrading, as im happy with my current old skool, but perfectly working phone, just got all excited, so Orange have now offered the phone for Ł100 but with cheaper line rental, but im still thinking of giving up as ive given them Ł1000s!!!!! and they cant give me a measly little phone.
Have a nice day
