Guernsey Tel Uk Is Here - Use Your Orange Card

Recommended Posts

Had visitors from across this weekend and they were surprised to find there phones ringing with an Orange sim card (pay as you go).

Look on the screen and you are connected to "Guernsey Tel UK".

Just what I was thinking - will it be cheaper to ring an Orange phone in the UK via Guernsey Tel UK or via Pronto (Manx Telecom). I may get chance to work it out later unless someone out there has the time now (both phones using pay as you talk rather than contract!)

Can you actually connect to that network to make or receive a call ? You can receive them but they would not be able to receive you and therefore make a connection. Would they ?

A reply to my own post -- I don't really believe what I am saying here, but here we go!

MT pay as you go to a UK Mobile 42p/min.

Orange pay as you go mobile from IOM to UK mobile 80p/min.

That means using MT mobile is about half the cost.

I thought I would never say that, but please correct me and wake me up if I am wrong!!!

Well you're 'roaming' on the Orange one aren't you? With current mobi roaming charges, what did you expect?
