Calls firm 'put girls in danger'.
The friends - aged 11 and 12 - got stuck in mud while walking at Hamstead Ledge, near Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.
Stacey Bennett, 12, from Yarmouth had to call 999 for firefighters and coastguards to rescue them after an Orange operator refused to reverse the charges on a call home.
Stacey says the operator replied: "That's not our problem, try 999".
The girls were all taken to hospital with mild hypothermia. An Orange spokesman said: "We are investigating as a matter of urgency."
