    9 months into a contract, I would doubt anyone will buy you out. Just not worth it for them.

    ring them up and see what they say? What line rental are you paying at the moment? They might just make you pay the remaining line rental fopr the 9 months upfront then you cacn leave. i.e. if your line rental is 25 if you pay 9 that? I guess the only way to find out is to ringthem

    Doubt it, they usually only do buyouts of three/four months or less. And I don't know if they're offering them at the moment.

Ill post tomorroe to let u know how i get on. But to be fair if i have to pay towards buying out the remining time on my contract myself i think i will as i need to get away from ORANGE as there signel is PANTS .

    They will probably see what price plan you are currently on and see if it is possible for you to drop down a tarriff level (depends on your network provider), which will subsequently make cancelling the contract cheaper. They may suggest you give/trade in your old handset to help bridge the cost.

    I just rang orange and they have told me i would have have to pay 201 to buy out the remaning months on contract. im off to town in a bit and ill see what they say

    Dehidie - might be an idea to read the orange price changes thread as you may not need a buy out.
  • Dehidie
    Just got back and im really happy with what i found out and i hope others can use this advise aswell, Yesterday i recived a text from orange saying this
    Hi from orange. from 14th september we will be changing the cost of some calls that are not included in your service plan see Website
    What this means is this i got to cancel my contract with orange today for free, Let me explain how, because i use over my free mins i get with my service plan and that orange have changed there service agrement they have breached there terms and conditions which allows you to cancel your contract from the day u call them like i did today...... The lady i spoke to today explained this also offcom are also dealing with this, But here is the bad news, If you dont go over your free mins there is nothing that u can do to cancel your contract as these changes will not affect you. I really hope this helps some people im not sure if there is a cut of date you can do this,

    Im now on a 18month contract with Vodafone and i got a nokia 5800 a headset and they even brought my old phone off me for 50 (Happy Days)

    Why dont people then go over the limit for 1 month and then ask to cancel?
    I am NOT a mortgage & insurance adviser - or anything to do with finance, that was put on by the new system I dont know why?!
  • Garym85
    Trevorcoleman- It doesnt matter whether you go over the minutes or not at present.
    Orange are just trying to use that card just now as probably most people dont go over their minutes etc...

    The reply is simple- what if you do go over the minutes at some point in the future.

    I Know countless people who have cancelled their contracts by using that line.
  • Dehidie
    I dont know all the answers but i cancelled my contract yesterday with orange and it was so easy. There is a web address that was with the text i recived but because im a new user on this website i cant post it.

    Just curious. If you was to go ahead with p4u buying out your contract, are you to take another out through them or are you able to go where-ever?

    when you say ... go over your minutes .... how does this get you out of your contract ?? .. is it like mis-selling or something ?

    i have about a year left on an O2 contract that i would like to be out of ... would the same apply or is this just Orange ???
