On Orange or T-Mobile? Are you sure? Technically, you’re on Everything Everywhere, which is now EE. Only, you’re still on Orange or T-Mobile really Unless you get 4G when it’s switched on tomorrow (Oct 30th). Confused? That’s understandable…  Read more

It’s probably a tough job, coming up with endless inspiring marketing imagery. Once you’ve done a few, it must be easy to give up and lose your momentum. We don’t know quite what’s happened at EE HQ, but the UK’s first 4G service has just served up a slice of horrendously depressing gold on its press page.

The Orange Monte Carlo – also known as the ZTE Skate – has been on our radar ever since Mobile World Congress in February. As the follow up to the spectacular Orange San Francisco, 2010′s bargain bin phone of the year, we were expecting great things at next to no cost: it’s the same size as the HTC Sensation or the Samsung Galaxy S 2 – but it costs a mere third of the price of either.

Orange has expanded its mission to own your week’s entertainment with a new service called Film To Go offering customers a free iTunes movie rental each week. As with its popular Orange Wednesdays cinema deal, customers just have to text to nab a promotional code.

While the text (FILMTOGO to 85060) costs 35p, the iTunes movie rental itself is free and can be watched on a computer, iOS device or Apple TV. As with standard iTunes movie rentals, your free flick remains valid for 30 days but once you start watching you’ve got 48 hours to finish it. The first film on offer is My Blueberry Nights with The Wrestler following it next week.
