Breaking news: Orange try to claw some money back with itemised billing charge for all
Interesting post on HotUKDeals earlier this evening from faevilangel. He says…
“Any Orange contract is automatically being signed up to itemised billing at a charge of £1.47 per month from their next bill. Orange say they had lots of requests for this so have made all the bills itemised.
You're automatically signed up to this, to get out of it, you need to text STOP to 1228 before your next bill. I had this letter come with my bill today.
If you cancel the itemised billing you need to get your bill online @ orange.co.uk/youraccount,
You will receive no paper bills if you do not keep the itemised billing.”
Orange have clearly lost a ton of money following the recent contract-changing/mass cancellation debacle and seem keen to recoup some of their losses by any means necessary, namely this nasty little opt-out from itemised billing for everyone.
Has anyone received the letter of which faevilangel speaks and could someone send us a scam, sorry, a scan of it? We’d love to take a closer look. firstname.lastname@example.org is where we’re at.
Christ, who knows - as it’s a new charge that is being introduced outside of the terms and conditions that Orange customers signed up for and is detrimental, it might even constitute another chance for customers to cancel their contracts. Surely not? We’re not sure we’ve got the energy for it all again…
