The iPhone accounted for more than three-quarters of all cell phone sales made by Orange over the holiday season, according to a new report. Speaking in an interview with French-language Les Echos (Translated Link), Didier Lombard, CEO of Orange parent company France Telecom, said that the iPhone accounted for 77% of phones sold in a bundle, and called the momentum behind the iPhone “a phenomenon.” Although the machine-based Google translation of the article is far from perfect, Lombard does appear to be wary of the “monopoly” the iPhone has on sales, pointing out that the company has started its own “Orange Shop Application.” [via MDN]

Since i had my first iphone i could listen to the radio on de EDGE band. After a year orange started offering 3G but now i can only listen for about 5 minutes until the sound starts to hickup. I think ORANGE has changed the condition without asking us.
Can they do that?
