  • that’s awesome now i gonna go to the store and find out to take it

  • Apples

    Just ordered mine from Orange’s online store. 18 MONTH CONTRACT, keyboard, hd dock, remote control, Orange Care (had a loyalty bonus which i took – 10% on line rental) all in @ £35 a month.. How do you like them apples my fellow Americans?

  • Andrew Threadgold

    Got mine in store today – 24 month contract for 300min / unlimited txt / 750MB Internet + hd dock (with keyboard, mouse and remote) for £30 a month. Should have been £50 for the hd dock as I am moving from O2, but got it for free as they could only enter it into the system as an existing customer. It sometimes does pay to be the first customer!

    So far, very impressed. I’m coming from a HTC Touch HD, so money well spent. Love the fingerprint scanner!

      Internet quick? No call quality issues? (seems to be a bit of a problem in the US). Battery ok? Switching from a HTC Touch Pro 2 (Windows 6.5), I’m expecting aston martins, bikini clad women and vodka martinis from here on out at the very least…

      • Andrew Threadgold

         Internet runs well on it. Call quality is better than my Touch HD, called someone on both phones to compare. Battery lasts 2 days with 3 hours video/music for my commute, few txts, sony liveview bluetooth on all day, mild internet/gaming.

    Ordered mine from Orange upgrades today. 24 month deal with 400 mins, unlimited texts and 1gb of data – for £15 a month! Arrives tomorrow and will be an upgrade from my HTC Hero so will be a massive difference.

    • Apples

      WOW £15 a month. May have to renegotiate! Did you get via the orange website or on the phone? did you have to pay for the phone too? That sounds like a SIM only deal..

      • andyf

        I got it via the phone upgrades on 150. I originally called to get my PAC code as I was going to get an LG O2X, but when they offered me the Atrix on that deal I just couldn’t turn it down. The phone is free too, and comes with a ‘work and play’ pack. I’m not 100% sure what it is, the guy on the phone said a dock – so I’m hoping for the HD dock but won’t now know until tomorrow as its been delayed with the courier. I can’t wait as my Hero is really starting to show its age.
