only 3 short calls from £10 top up????
English

bought a cheap nokia mobile phone for calling and texting i have an orange sim card and my concern is that i seem to be getting only around 3 or 4 short calls (to orange mobiles) from putting in a £10 top up. is this about right? i prefer pay as you go rather than contract but it's more like rip off as you go. :shame:

Exactly how many minutes is each short call? Is internet enabled? Data can seriously drain your balance. Ask customer service.

Check giffgaff if you want an alternative network provider. Owned by O2, it's great value for money, and the network has won many ethical awards.

around 3 to 5 mins max. well that could be a possibility, my last phone was a nokia lumia and that was internet enabled, i haqve since rplaced that with a non smartphone no internet enabled just for use with calls and texts, i havn't tested a £10 voucher with this phone yet so if there is a difference it may be have been the data on the smartphone, i never knew that. thanks for the advice.

At a guess the SIM is charged £1 a day for internet access, even though you're not using it. Check your account online.
