Orange Customer Service Issues

Orange Customer Service receives large volumes of customer inquiries daily and is often very busy. When calling, be prepared to be put into a queue before your call is dealt with. During very busy periods, waiting times can be long and it may be easier to call later. If you are paying for the call, it may also be cheaper.

Preparing to call Orange Customer Service

Before Orange assistants deal with your inquiry, they need to verify your identity to make sure no-one tries to fraudulently access your account. To make this process quicker, have ready all the relevant details they may ask for, including; your telephone number, address, postcode, Orange account and contract numbers,  telephone password or secret question answers you have given to identify yourself.

Getting through to the right person

When calling large companies, like EE or Orange, you may need to use your telephone keypad to choose from a range of caller options so that you are connected to the correct department. Pay attention to the recorded message so that you understand the various choices. If the options are not suitable for your problem, choose the most  likely matches or press no key at all. Not pressing an option may divert you to general inquiries where an operator can help put you through to the best department.

Dealing with Orange Customer Service on the phone

When calling Orange Customer Service, discuss your concerns as clearly as possible so members of the team dealing with your inquiry can fully help you. If you intend to make a complaint, remain calm and remember that the assistant you are talking to is only doing their job.

If you get an unsatisfactory response from your customer service inquiry or you aren’t happy with their service, take the assistant’s name and ask to speak to the manager.  If this fails to solve your problems, ask for the manager’s name. You should then write to raise your concerns with a more senior manager. Mention the names of the people you have spoken to when writing.

Information about Orange

The video below gives information about how Orange and T-Mobile have become part of the EE brand.


Orange UK was launched in 1993 and quickly became one of the UK’s major mobile network operators, as well as being an internet service provider. At their height, they had over 300 UK high street stores and offered a range of Pay monthly and pay as you go services.

However, Orange UK has now merged with T-Mobile UK to form a new company called EE (Everything Everywhere). Initially, EE maintained both Orange and T-Mobile Brands whilst launching products under its own name. However, this was ended in early 2015.  Whilst Orange still has existing customers, once their contracts come to an end they will need to renew or upgrade to the EE brand. Alternatively, if they choose not to upgrade or renew they can stay with their current Orange tariff without the need to renew. In order to encourage users to move to EE, Orange mobile users can no longer call premium rate or directory numbers.

The company is famous for two things. Firstly its catchy slogan, “The future’s bright – the future’s Orange” and secondly for offering its customers cheap cinema tickets on what became known as Orange Wednesdays. It also sponsored various creative and sporting projects, most notably, a 2 year flirtation in F1 with the F1 Orange Arrows team and the BAFTA awards.
