    Sharing Signal - Orange & T-Mobile

    I've just had an email from Orange saying that you can now use the signal from both Orange and T-Mobile. All you got to do is register with the network and they will get it done.

    Any idea if Virgin (who use the T-Mobile network) customers will get access via the Orange network?

    Ahhh yes I knew this was on the cards as we've had major network outages locally that apparently were to do with Orange updating their technology and making the necessary changes for this to happen.

    Joy, as my G1 is using android 1.6, enabling this will cause issues - ie. i wouldn't be able to use data on the orange network at the moment.

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

    Set mine up and changed to Orange T-Mobile and it works great, where I work and at home its fairly similar signal but just round the corner from where I work it is rather intermittent with Orange but T-Mobile works great so fingers crossed this solved that problem

    As soon as this is enabled for 3g (it's currently only 2g) I'll leave o2's third world 3G network and jump ship :P

    It took around 30 minutes from emailing the request to getting a text to say it was done. Can't grumble at that.

    It works fine on 3g if you enable data roaming. (well it's working for me anyway as a TMobile user over on Orange land with a htc desire)

    Well it's working for me, my orange phone now has a T-Mobile signal in this building as that is stronger than the normal orange signal round here. I'm happy with that!

    Are you sure? T-Mobile and Orange customers can now share networks | Crave | CNET UK
