The future's bright...

... or not, as the case may be. I was supposed to be getting a shiny new phone as my birthday present from my parents, and had decided to go for the gorgeous all-singing all-dancing Sony Ericsson P800. I phoned Orange to sort this out, and they said, rather hesitantly, "Well, it's very expensive"; almost as if they knew I was about to join the ranks of the jobless. Anyway, I said that was fine, my parents were paying for it as a birthday present. They then told me that because I'd already had an upgrade earlier this year, if I wanted to upgrade again now I'd have to pay an extra £250.00 upgrade fee on top of the £279.99 I was expecting the phone to cost. This is clearly just ridiculous. I don't want to change the contract, why do I have to pay such a ridiculous sum of money just to use a nicer phone?
