Don’t Leave Us!

Hmm, Orange are making it a little difficult to downgrade from a pay monthly mobile account, to pay as you go (weirdly enough 🙂 ). When we first returned to Kazakhstan, I wanted to have a functioning UK mobile number as well as my usual Kazakh one, in case there were problems in the first few weeks with communicating back with Britain. However, now that all seems well, I want to save money by changing back to pay as you go. (If I cancel the account completely, I’ll obviously lose my number. Orange PAYG accounts don’t work over here in Kazakhstan, as they apparently have no contracts with any of the Kazakh mobile networks. Pay monthly does however. So when Orange reminded me that I owed them some money, I went to my account on their site, and looked for a way to swap to PAYG. None to be found. I’ll now need to call them up (can only find a UK mobile number to call, that is going to be a bit expensive, even if I use Skype…) to downgrade again to PAYG.
