Orange bulks up SIM-only deals for people who text like a canary

And talk for Britain

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Orange has tweaked its SIM only price plans with three "Canary" tariffs for people who "love to chat". And texting too from the look of it.

The three new options are:

  • 30 day £10 SIM only – 100 minutes and unlimited texts
  • 12 month £10 SIM only – 300 minutes and unlimited texts
  • 12 month £15 SIM only – 600 minutes and unlimited texts

The 12 month contract is a SIM only first for Orange.

Customers who want mobile data and like texting and are unfussed about talking - which is just about every teenage iPhone user - should check out Orange Dolphin pay monthly contracts Want to call abroad? Have a look at Orange Camel. Landlines? Orange Racoon.

Orange is known for its marketing genius, but this animal magic leaves us baffled.
