    Take a read of the above, you can cancel your contract if it was issued prior to 31st of May, as they are putting up their prices come september. Great way to back out of a lengthy contract and keep your phone if you ask me!:p:

    Worked, just canceled my mothers phone now she'll get a simplicity sim only deal for £10 a month, and keep her Sony C905 Winner.

    Going to do the same for my sister when she turns up ... She only got her 5800xpress music in March on a 24 month contract - What a saving!

    EDIT: Much appreciated in regards to the Rep I've recieved lately, wasn't for this but a nice extra, thanks alot to those who have given it out

    LOL quick question buddy, we won't have to pay any cancellation fee will we at all? And no buy out amount at all right? - I forgot to ask, as I assumed this, but obviously not if its caused such an issue! - 2 million people are expected to cancel!

    It should, but check dialaphones T&C's too, because you may have to return the phone or pay the actual cost of the phone if you want to keep it (as the contract for the handset is with them, its the airtime contract that is with orange).

    Terminating your Contract because Orange has changed its terms

    4.3 You may also terminate your Contract if we vary its terms, resulting in an excessive increase in the Charges or changes that alter your rights under this Contract to your detriment. In such cases you would need to give us at least 14 days written notice prior to your Billing Date (and within one month of us telling you about the changes). However this option does not apply if:

    4.3.1 we have increased the Charges by an amount equal to or less than the percentage increase in the All Items Index of Retail Prices published by the Central Statistical Office in the Monthly Digest of Statistics in any 12 month period;"

    what is all the fuss about, its only small changes:
    they're going to be replacing the £1 per day maximum with a 60p flat charge in any day you use it, for as much as you use it (25MB fair use daily).
    I also believe the minimum charge for calls not included in your plan (i.e. 0870 numbers, calls made after your free minutes) goes up from 5p to 15p.
