Orange sim.
T-Mobile doesn't work.
They share the same network, nothing else.

WRONG.

I have a iPhone 4 locked to T-Mobile (haven't got round to unlocking it yet), it works both with T-Mobile and Orange (I have both SIMS). Doesn't work with anything else though as the phone is definitely locked.

It is possible iPhones locked to Orange or T-Mobile prior to the merger may not work, I can;t say for sure; but I don't see why this should be the case as Apple only to update its database on the server.

Some people talk some rubbish. Orange and T-Mobile share more than the network; they are the same company (Everything Everywhere) and they have been integrating a lot of their systems although they are keeping both Brand identities for now. Why do you think they have both been shedding so many staff recently?

recent iPhones locked to orange or t mobile seem to work ok on T mobile,Orange, Virgin. I have tried this three times but can't guarantee it.

All phones sold before the merger will NOT work with each other's network, definitely. However, at some point after the merger, they decided that phones should work across both networks. I know all T-Mobile phones now sold does work with Orange (thus one assumes the reverse is also true).

They cannot get old phones to work across both networks, without they being individually unlocked and/or they use the same Network ID.

You're missing the point
Orange and T-mobile phones will work across both network masts for increased coverage however putting a sim for one of them in a handset locked to the other is still highly iffy and a different merger issue entirely.

I just took out an upgrade with t mobile and they have helpfully sent me a new Samsung S3 which is locked to Orange and has a T mobile microSim card and PIN.....hence I now have to wait another "up to 5 days" for them to resolve the problem by getting someone to call me back with a PIN that will work......why this should take 5 days I don't know - the call centre is based in the Philippines and I think tmobile rely on carrier pigeons for inhouse comms as it usually takes them at least 30mins to pick up a call on 150!!!!

Luckily, new microsim works fine with my existing HTC phone using the normal sim adaptor.

And yes, I can use either Orange or T mobile networks on old phone, but clearly all systems are not integrated as I can't use t mob sim in orange locked phone.
