I haven't experienced your exact problem, but when roaming, I
occassional have up to a 20 second delay before the call goes
through. This is probably because of interchange between systems.
If the call doesn't go, the phone will "beep" a couple of times.

Try checking your firmware by selecting *#837#. It should read
250.nep or higher. I've heard its 450 in Australia. If not, go to
your Orange dealer and have it updated.

Also check to see that you have atleast half the bars and a "D" on
your signal indicator. You may be on the fringe of you cell area.
Here's a link to your coverage map: ... »

The 6385 has a field test section, but its very limited compared to
GSM. Screen 3101 will show your cell channel and signal strength
(example: Idle 384 SC, -82 -72) and 3106 will show the channel, Sid,
and Home or Roaming. This is an example of Verizon USA, so your
screen may be different.
The -82 is what your signal indicator represents. Best is -50 and
worst is -105.

Lastly, make sure your phone is actually making a call. The screen
should switch and say "Calling xxx 555-1212". If it doesn't, you
may just have a bad or intermittent send button.
