Call and text in even more places

Now you can pick up a signal from both the Orange and T-Mobile networks in the UK which means that you can call and text in even more places.

* Your phone will use T-Mobile signal if it doesn't pick up an Orange signal
* Your charges stay the same when you use T-Mobile signal
* Nothing else will change, you'll just get more network coverage

Does it work the other way round
* Your phone will use an Orange signal if it doesn't pick up a T mobile signal?

The signals switch automatically, but they are weak signals eg. if you are on Orange and there is no signal you might get a Tmobile signal , maybe a bar, but if you are Tmobile you get full bars. I think they still have teeting problems sorting the signals out...

Yes, each networks customers can now roam on the others network. You need to register on the website of which ever network you're on.

welcome to 2 weeks ago!

If you're on Orange the address is orange.co.uk/share and I suppose it'll be a similar address for T-Mobile.

I've had it a couple of weeks now.

Think this is only for 2g is it not?

No, because 3g isn't covered. It's only voice and 2g.

Both Orange and T are still as is, and the agreement with 3 is with T not the new company. . .

Yay, another thread about this

Set this up last week on a trip to Portsmouth as I was getting lots of dropped signals on T Mobile. Orange never kicked in.
