Orange has launched it’s iPhone 4 plans and they’re offering an unlimited browsing capacity of 750Mb per month on both internet and wi-fi through BT. Why don’t they just come clean and say 750Mb per month? This is NOT unlimited in any shape or form. Additionally they also fail to say what the costs will be over 750Mb the terms and conditions state this
“If you go over this limit, we (Orange) may monitor your usage and withdraw the offer from your account. But 750MB is an awful lot to play with. So hopefully it won’t come to that.”
We’re shocked “750MB is an awful lot to play with. So hopefully it won’t come to that” what sort of language is this?
The Business, Monthly and PAYG pricing models are all revealed on the site and it’s as clear as mud, there are so many options that we suspect they may confuse most customers even before they start.
