    those pesky automated messages and their inconsiderate sense of time! [/tongue in cheek]

    I've made the change on my Desire, all seems to be working fine for me, the real test will be when I make it home, wonder if I'll get signal anywhere but the arm of my chair now...

    Nope I'm wrong turns out the g isn't 3g but goes to show I've never had any 3g signal anyway! (god bless wifi in the house)

    Sorry for dashing any hopes.

    Nice find, took me 5 minutes start to finish this morning.

    Have let our mobile working project manager know and they actually have TMobile in today with regards to this.

    Actually it took a couple of hours for the "update SIM" SMS to come through, and i still can't connect to T-Mobile because they only offer 3G where i am currently sat. Still, can't wait to see it in acion

    Been enjoying the Orange T-Mobile network today, it changes from Orange to Orange T-Mobile depending on where I am in the building at work, downside is I now seem to have 100% coverage at work No more hiding

    No I haven't but I don't tend to get harrased too much really.
    One annoyance I've had is I dont seem to be able to send texts when on Orange T-Mobile for some reason, receiving them is fine and calls are fine but texts seem a no go which is not good!

    So, no use yet for me, until they release a new software update anyway.

    No option for Data Roaming on 1.6?

    I got my changed as soon as I was able, but as soon as I was getting Dual Signal(by this I mean the Network Operator on the home screen changed from Orange to Orange T-Mobile) I lost 3 G signal everywhere :-(

    Phoned Orange and argued with the nice lady who said this hasn't happened (even though she can't she my phone!) and got her to change it back.

    But was also told that come january I will not have a choice because it will roll out to everyone as standard.

    It is currently on 2G signal that you can use on the T-Mobile Network if you are an Orange customer. I think they are releasing the 3G signal sharing in the new year
