  2. my issue is with ”Recharging and managing your data plan via the Internet everywhere 3G+ portal
    Go to

    I am unable to access my account. keeps on saying either my pin is not correct (and I am sure it is) or the code is not correct. my nr is 0208187673. I am using onother modem to access internet portal since the above has stopped working abruptly. If oranage wishes to call me, you can reach me on 0720009172 or 0731435156. Have called customer care with the orange nr above but he could not understand me due to noise and dropped the line asking me to call later, Thanks

  3. I want to load bundles but i cant remember the uim no. Am away from home and my laptop usually just writes it without me writing it.What do I do?

  4. Haven’t they slashed their prices by half? Browsing based on bundles is rather expensive. If you are constantly on the internet, 300mb may not last a week, especially with downloads as part of your plan…
    i think the bamba unlimited offer is what we’ve been waiting for. Orange should do the same.
