Orange Unique Phone - Best of fixed & mobile

Unique phone combines the best of fixed and mobile within a single handset: one phone number, one address book, one answer phone and one bill.

  • At home, the mobile handset connects in WiFi mode to the Orange Livebox and calls are routed via the Internet, offering enhanced coverage inside the house.
  • Outside, Unique phone works just like a standard mobile, with calls routed via the mobile network.

Orange Unique Phone - Mobile & Home network

Unique phone allows customers to move freely between the mobile and home networks without interrupting their conversation. A call made at home automatically switches over to the Orange mobile network when you leave the house. Furthermore, a call initiated at home remains covered by the unlimited offer even when you leave your home. A symbol on the phone's screen constantly informs customers of the network they are connected to.

Orange Livebox for faster access to Orange World

Each home can have up to six Unique phones, with three people able to make calls or surf the net at the same time. Because it uses the Orange Livebox to route calls at home, Unique phone also offers customers enhanced coverage and faster access to Orange mobile data services including Orange World, picture and video messaging, mobile email and the mobile internet.

Orange Unique phone - Availability

Unique phone customers will receive a single bill from Orange for all of the home's communications needs. They will also benefit from a dedicated customer helpline for registration and in-life queries. If a customer wishes, they can also book a visit from an engineer who will install Unique phone for them at minimal cost. The first units will be available in November. Initially, there are three handsets to choose from - the Motorola A910, Nokia 6136 and the Samsung P200 - with more due to launch in 2007.


Orange telephone - Unifying fixed and mobile worlds

Didier Lombard, President and Director General of the France Télécom group, said: "The commercial launch of Unique phone announces the advent of a new generation of telephones. Today, people use the phone in a different way. With broadband, the use of Internet, mobiles, Voice over IP, and high definition technologies for sound and vision, our communication habits are changing very rapidly. Unique phone re-invents the telephone, by unifying fixed and mobile worlds. This is the first real convergence offer, dreamed up, developed and commercialised by the group under the Orange brand, and the result of the work of our Technocentre. Unique phone will allow our customers in France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain and Poland, to experience this new telecommunications experience in their daily lives".


Orange mobile network

Sanjiv Ahuja, CEO of Orange, said: "With Unique phone you can now enjoy the freedom of the Orange mobile network and get even better value when you're at home. With one phone, one number, one address book and one bill, we're making it simpler, more convenient and more cost effective for our customers to communicate." With new Orange, France Télécom consolidates its integrated operator strategy and marks a fundamental stage in its promise of simplicity and convergence making life easier for customers in mobility, at home or in the office.
