Orange is a GSM cellular provider based in the United Kingdom. In addition to traditional postpaid plans, Orange also offers pay-as-you-go wireless options and sends out free SIM cards to those who bring their own unlocked mobile phone to the service. If you choose to order a free SIM card, you have to activate it with Orange before your phone can use the cellular network. Luckily, Orange has made SIM card activation a very simple process.
