Glad you too enjoyed the nostalgia. Bring back the razer flip phones!
Orange is technically still a telecoms company, but yes they dabble with finance. As do all underwhelming companies these days:
Orange has been the company's main brand for mobile, landline, internet and Internet Protocol television
(IPTV) services since 2006.
The Orange brand originated in the United Kingdom in 1994 after Hutchison Whampoa acquired a controlling stake in Microtel Communications: that company became a subsidiary of Mannesmann in 1999 and then was acquired by France Télécom in 2000.
The France Télécom company was rebranded to Orange on 1 July 2013.
It has 266 million customers worldwide and employs 89,000 people in France, and 59,000 elsewhere.
