For visitors in Denmark with a 900/1800 Dual Band phone.

The Mayday/Just Go card is the fourth PrePaid GSM card in Denmark, but the second for GSM1800. It was introduced on the market in October 1998. Orange is a subsidary of the French state owned telecom company France Telecom.

For many foreign visitors it is better economy to buy a Mayday/Just Go card when they want to make calls within Denmark. Check the coverage at www.orange.dk. Orange has now also got a contract with the Danish GSM900 operator Sonofon, which means that you can also use Mayday/Just Go in Sonofon's net. You can call Customer Service at 80404080 (free when in Denmark) or from outside Denmark +4580404080 (normal fee), send an email to info@orange.dk or write to:
