Orange UK top up: the best offers

Orange mobile was a telecommunications operator in the UK. Orange sim had been available under this brand for users in the UK from 2000 to 2010. However, in 2010, Orange UK merged with T-Mobile UK (owned at the time by Deutsche Telekom) and formed the joint venture EE Mobile. 

Orange UK top-up plans have been available for EE users until 2015. However, after that, EE withdrew connections and upgrades on existing Orange tariffs. Orange customers had to switch fully to EE in 2019. 

How can I activate my Orange SIM? 

If you have purchased an Orange sim card, you will first have to activate it 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.
