    Orange registrations were also broken this week

    Is this connected at all with the fact that Orange SIM registration seems to have been broken all week.

    At the beginning of the week I registered my SIM on the website, was told it was successfully completed, given my phone number and told to expect an SMS activation within 24 hours. I am still waiting now. Yesterday I called Orange and was told their system was down all week and they couldn't register anyone.

    Today Orange registrations are apparantly working again, but they have no record of my SIM or phone number. They are telling me they don't exist, and expect me to just throw away a perfectly good SIM, number and all my printed stationary as well as re-inform everyone I know of a new number! This is quite ridiculous, and I'd invite any Orange employees reading this for their comments.

    THat explains a lot...

    I'd been receiving calls from contract re-sellers for the last two months, which i thought was odd as this is my first 18 month contract, so it's not as if they've stuck 12 months on my last renewal date - but i just thought it was orange selling the customer list.....
