Orange is a French telecommunications group, founded in 1988 and formerly known as France Télécom. Orange is the tenth largest telecommunications company in the world and the 4th in Europe. Currently, the company counts over 260 million subscribers worldwide and more than 150,000  employees.

Orange’s main products are fixed line telephone, mobile phone (subscription plans or sim only deals), broadband, Internet, Banking and Mobile Money. 

In the sections below, you will learn everything you need to know about the Orange Sim card deals. 

Activate your Orange card 

Whether you’ve opted for a Pay Monthly plan or a Pay as You Go deal, you have to activate your Orange sim card before you can use it. There are three ways in which you can do so: online, by phone or directly in one of the Orange shops available in your area. 

Activate your Orange sim card online: 

  • Connect to your Orange account using your phone number or email address. You can do so directly from your browser or by using the Orange mobile app (available on Google Play and the App Store) 
  • Click on the “Activate my Sim Card” tab
  • Enter the 13-digit activation number that you can find on the back of your new Orange Sim card 
  • Your new Orange card will be activated once the signal bars appear on your phone screen. The process can take up to 24h although it usually is much faster. 

Activate your Orange card by phone: 

  • If you are located in France, you can contact the customer service in order to activate your Sim card
  • Call 0 800 100 740 from any mobile phone, all week long, from 8am to 10pm. 
  • Your 10-digit customer number received by email will be required by the operator to activate your Sim card 

If you don’t feel comfortable using any of these options, you can choose to go directly to an Orange shop and ask one of the assistants to activate your sim card directly. You should be able to find a location close to you as Orange has many shops and partner boutiques. 

Recharge your Orange card 

If you have chosen an annual subscription plan then you do not need to worry about recharging your card. For the Pay as you Go clients, however, recharges come in handy. 

There are plenty of recharge options and deals available for Orange sim card users. First, we will take a look at some of the plans, and then at all the options to purchase a top-up. 

Top-up plans for an Orange sim card start at 5€ and can go as high as 100€, depending on your needs. The validity of a top-up also varies depending on the sum. A recharge can last between 5 days and a maximum of a year. 

Also note that without a recharge, Orange mobiles expire after one or six months, depending on your last top-up, so you want to make sure you won’t need to purchase another sim card. Nonetheless, there are so many ways in which you can do a recharge, it’s almost impossible to miss it. 

You can recharge your Orange sim card directly from your Orange account, by phone, from an official selling point etc. 

Recharge your mobile online, 7 days out of 7, directly from your browser or mobile app. Just connect to your account, choose the deal you want to top-up and pay with your credit card. Your mobile will be recharged instantly.  

If you want to be guided for a top up, all you need to do is dial #123# from your Orange mobile and an operator will help you every step of the way. The same number can be dialed from your mobile if you want to do a top-up whilst being abroad. 

You can also buy a recharge voucher from one of the 50,000 Orange partners available worldwide. All the steps to complete the top-up are detailed on the voucher.

Contact the Orange card help service

For more information or any question regarding the Orange sim card deals, you can contact the Customer Service. 

You can reach customer care either online, by phone, or by making an appointment in one of the Orange Shops. 

If you want to reach the Customer Service in writing, all you have to do is go on the Orange page and click on the Help icon. An assistant will respond to you from Monday to Saturday between 8am and 8pm. 

From France, you can reach the Customer Service by dialling 3900 from any Orange mobile. However, if you’re calling from abroad, you will need to dial +33 969 39 3900 for the same service.
