Orange UK carrier billing now available

My Kind of Phone, one of Microsoft’s official Windows Phone 7 blogs in UK, is now reporting that carrier billing has been enabled for Orange UK.

If you have purchased your Windows Phone from Orange directly you can now choose whether to charge your Marketplace purchases directly to your Orange bill, or to a credit card.

Carrier billing is so far not a common smartphone feature, especially for Windows phone 7, but is set to expand dramatically when Microsoft joins resources with Nokia, who has extensive agreements with carriers in place already. The ease of use is apparently known to drive purchases at significantly higher rates than using a credit card.
