    I don't know. I've been with them for 6 years, it's not been actively
    advertised in that time in the retail channel. Maybe it has elsewhere.

    With the amount of minutes and texts available in todays marketplace,
    and the abolition of peak and off peak and cross network minutes, I
    doubt it would sell.

    Slightly o/t but you can't divert to an 'international' number whilst
    roaming with Orange can you (forgetting the line 1/2 issue)?

    There's 2 places you can't divert line 2 to:

    1) International Destinations
    2) Your line 1 number without the help of Everyphone which not everyone can
    get!

    Bit of a pain when your roaming and want to receive your line 2 calls

    Had an interesting bonus this week. Ported two phones from Orange to
    Three, in the local Three shop.

    "Oh, you're doing two at once. You get a bonus"

    (this is on Mix & Match 300)

    "What's that?"

    "2000 extra 3-to-3 minutes each month on both phones".

    Yes that's what i took last month, a pair of Three Nokia 6120
    on M&M 300 for 6 months with 2000 extra 3to3 mins.

    Ideal for me and the GF, that's all her calls to me covered
    for the next 6 months. ;-)

    ED50 still off-peak and weekends, but it includes 50mins a day off-peak
    0845 and 0870 and then 1p per min.

    Which can be used for 0870 international callthroughs.
    So an ideal tariff for heavy off peak land line or international caller,
    or if there are any left, 0870 chatlines.

    Although these days VOIP has taken over very cheap international calls.

    Thanks Steve, I might as well get shot of the ED50 then as off-peak is only
    fairly lightly used here.

    Ta!

    You could sell it for transfer, some heavy 0870 users could want one badly?

    Unless it's on Line2 then you can't transfer it's ownership,
    unless you can find a friendly Orange Tubbie to switch L2 to L1 first?
    (Not likely theses days)

    Is that another simplification? I'm sure I've done L2 transfers in the past.

    Actually it is on Line 2 - are you saying it could have some value?
