Following the merger of Tmobile and Orange in the UK (to Everything Everywhere), from 5th October 2010 you can jump networks when you don't have a signal. Really does maxmimise your network coverage by utilising both networks and it's a free upgrade.

Taken from Tmobile website:
Fancy talking and texting in more places than before

Now you can sign up to pick up a signal from Orange when you don't have a T-Mobile signal, so you can call and text in even more places.

Improved signal on both our phones to full bars (from a very mediocre tmobile signal at home) - calls and txts fine, but my android suffers a tad with 2g on data.

From what I've experienced, you can make this a permanant change rather than the advertised drop signal change.

Hope it all makes sense and is of use to some tmob and orange customers.

so having more network coverage wont cost a penny more, right?
great.

The idea is that if you're on Tmobile for example and your coverage drops completely, it defaults to Orange as an alternative network. However, I have permantley defaulted to the Orange network from within settings and it works fine sitting on the Orange network and I'm a tmobile customer.

Orange apparantley far better between the two as a network "up north!"

The combining of the networks is a free change - see their wbesites for full details from the links above.
cheers

cheers, do you think i could get orange wednesday codes now? as im a t-mobile customer
#5
If this is such a good thing, why is it currently cold?

Are there hidden costs?
Will we be caught out?

(Only wondering, so can't vote either way, but thanks for bringing it to our attention OP.)

Hoping they work - initial thought I had!

Tmobile do their Blockbusters nights in (2 films, bottle of fizzy, popcorn and sweets for a fiver Mon-Thur). My hope is that you can switch networks, do the text and receive the code. It just needs trying I'd guess.

T-mobile customers text "NIGHT IN" to 3000 to get code

Must stop being a "gotta know" type.

No, both companies are the same now ( orange brought t-mobile) well merged, so no hidden costs, no nothing

So should be blistering hot.

Anybody know the code for orange wednesdays? so i can try?
#10
fishwibbler - not sure why cold. There is no cost to this at all - just an overall better network coverage. The only thing to remember is to switch off network roaming when you go abroad (it has to be enabled to make this work).

Perhaps other network customers are voting cold ;-(

text FILM to 241 (I'd presume when on the organge network only). No charge for txt, 35p charge to receive ticket.

Didn't work for me :-(

I doubt marketing offers are shared such as the Orange Wednesdays. Just buy a sim with a fiver on it as the 214 texts are 35p anyway.

Note that if you roam to Orange then you only get 2G data and you need to enable data roaming on your phone or MMS and Browsing may not work when on Orange.
#15
good idea ive signed up (_;)
#16
I have a T mobile dongle and the coverage is rubbish, can I change this to Orange, as I know they have a much stronger network coverage in my area?
#17
This has worked out great for me. Generally I have good signal but live near a park and I would normally only get signal on the back of my couch. Last night it switched signal when I moved it and it lost the orange signal. I now have signal everywhere in my house :D. Even better because its free.

my sister has recently bought a orange phone on PayasGo but has a t-mobile contract sim-how would she get Orange to unlock the phone for free so she can use her t-mobile sim card?
#21
Just a word of warning, and I am not sure if this is just for T-mo Android users, but the site implies if you turn Raoming ON you should be able to get data on 2G, but that simply doesn't seem to work. Perhaps we need new APNs.
SO- your phone might no longer have data in the situation where 2G Orange is stronger than 2G/3G T-mobile. Imagine driving with Google maps navigation This situation will likely occur several times in a long journey.

I advise you hold back on this experiment for now if you are not experiencing any problems at the moment with your T-mobile signal as all it does is introduce new problems.

I have had to get Any Cut put a shortcut to the Phone Info panel, and set my phone to 3G only to get any data at my desk at work...

You can get a data connection when roaming between netwroks. I'm on Orange and have used the T-Mobile data connection. There should be no need for new APN's as you the network you are roaming on will ultimately pass the traffic back to your home networks GGSN. Obviously it does rely on every part of the jigsaw working correctly in the area you are in at the time.

At present the change between networks will only occur when you completly lose signal (and as such would not have a data connection on your home network anyway). I'm sure this will change in future as I've heard the plan is to introduce "seamless integration" so that you will pick up the strongest signal as if it was one network and it is at this point that the 3G integration will happen.
#24
Thanks! Haven't seen any info on this on Orange's website so wouldn't have known!
#25
I just moved and the T-Mobile signal at home is rubbish. Hopefully Orange will be bettter. Thanks for this.
#26
Sounds great but I just have one query regarding roaming. I only use my mobile for calls, texts etc. but when I'm abroad I use a local sim card, only leaving my T-Mobile on for anyone who needs to contact me urgently but doesn't have my overseas number. If I read aquaticmammal's post correctly it looks as if roaming will continue as normal . Would someone please confirm this?
#27
International roaming will not change at all. Each network is still seperate in terms of the roaming agreements with foreign networks.

The answers to most questions are HERE
#28
does anyone know if this will affect virgin mobile customers?
#29
Amazing!!!! Although I shelled out £170 for a repeater 4 months ago to boost my t-mobile reception. Orange is great in my area. Repeater will be going on ebay shortly!

thanks

Not at the moment, the available opposite network available is only for 2g calls, no data / internet usage available until next year for dongles and 3g video calls

I get a rubbish Orange signal at home and work (The 2 places I spend most of my time) and unfortunately the T-Mobile signal is even worse, so off to O2 when the contract runs out, however, this is a good freebie, so voted hot.

"Sorry we had a problem completing your request. We're working on fixing the problem now. Please try again later. Thanks"

On my T-Mobile HTC Hero. :(
