In the shops now!: Reconditioning the unreconditionable

4 February 2009

So there's been a slump in mobile handset sales, but surely that doesn't mean Orange have to resort to recycling top-up vouchers?  Yes, you too can buy a pre-owned £20 airtime voucher, and it's yours for the bargain price of £20:

Unfortunately the process by which airtime is reconditioned is still in its infancy, so it's unlikely your airtime will be completely clean of previous conversations; you may hear filthy sex talk uttered by the original owners of the voucher, or a discussion had while in Sainsburys about what to cook for tea.

Alternatively, Orange could give someone a slap round the back of the head and ask them to use a design template other than the one for re-conditioned goods. Thanks to Chris Webb letting us know; if you've spotted a deal that only makes sense if you squint at it through a sponge, send it to [email protected]

    £20 for used filthy sex talk is potentially a bargain!
