    I'm starting to get really pished off with marketing calls from
    companies who claim to be "calling on behalf of orange". Do Orange
    actually subcontract or are these companies all just chancers?

    I'm signed up to the telephone preference service, and have asked
    Orange not to pass on my details. Is there anything more i can do?

    The most recent one was offering a 'loyalty bonus' which i presume is
    actually a contract extension.

    I had someone call me up from Orange. Was going to offer me an N70 for
    being such a good customer. But I said, no, I have a 6680 which is
    basically the same beast in a different skin... gimme an N80 or N92.
    They said they don't have those yet, so offered six months at half price.

    Fair enough I thought.

    Then I realised I didn't actually remember if they said they were really
    from Orange.

    Must be genuine though?

    It would appear that these are not working on behalf of Orange but on
    the other hand Orange do stand to gain if these people get you to extend
    your contract even if you don't realise that is what is actually
    happening.

    You presume correctly, you get nothing without an extension to the
    contract if you accept their offer.

    Chancers.

    Not really.

    Only Orange Direct (I.e. Customer Services, Telesales and Orange Retail
    shops) could have offered 6-month at half price, so that particular call
    was genuinely from Orange.

    Had people claiming to be working on behalf of O2 saying they knew my
    contract was about to expire, would I like a new phone? I told them to piss
    off as I'd just renewed 2 months ago.

    It's quite funny though. I had one guy ring up and ask how many minutes
    I get from Orange. 500, I said. And how many texts? 500. And how much
    does that cost you? 25.

    He seemed quite deflated, said 'That *is* a good deal'. To which I
    replied 'yep' and he hung up.

    One company had the cheek to ask for my new address details and seemed
    quite taken aback when I suggested that I didn't want to give them out
    to random sales companies.

    I've had 3rd party companies offering me second lines with t-mobile, I
    told them I couldn't afford it due to buying a new car, and he said
    enjoy your car and that was that
