Orange Hands Out Useless Phone Numbers

Oops. Orange UK seems to have screwed up a bit with the latest batch of phone numbers they’ve been giving out to new mobile phone customers. They apparently forgot to register the numbers so that most other carriers don’t recognize the phone numbers. Right now, only calls from BT landlines or other Orange customers will get through. This seems like a fairly major gaffe, but Orange barely seems to acknowledge it.
