It will be because the name T-Mobile like its predecessor One2One is going in to history, the companies new name is "Everything Everywhere" EE
[Edit]
Geee the name T-Mobile only lasted 11 years from wen One2One was rebranded see

I think One2One used to be Mercury before that.

I remember their theme music.  It came from Spacehog's "In the meantime" Smiley

My first personal (as opposed to business) mobile phone was on One2one and I still have all the guff from October 1996 when I bought it.
Still on the same network and number (with a 7 inserted) nearly 17 years later.  Crazy

Yep, 16 years from One2One through to T-Mobile (EE) and, like HP, still the same original number all this time!

My first phone was also on one2one and I was shot of it a long time ago lol. I've been through about a million of the pesky things since then lol. I think the most I got out of a phone was about 2 or 3 years.
Mind you, my current one from Tesco is a cheap old £15 don't_cry_if_you_loose_it type. Believe it or not I bought it 2 or 3 years ago, I've thrown it, hit it, dropped it, walloped it, even threw it along a railway track with all my might (yeah it bounced a lot on the sleepers lol) and it STILL works better than all the predecessors. It's indestructible. My neighbour even ran over it with his works van a few months back and it survived that too  Shocked

all the other things you did with it I can understand but I'm trying to picture how chucking it along a railway line came about  Undecided

Re: T-Mobile have some interesting error pages...

I used to be a volunteer on a heritage line. I got talking to another volunteer one day about mobiles and how easily they break etc. I ended up proving a point that higher priced phones don't mean they're any more robust than a cheap phone lol. He didn't want to believe me until I proved it and as I released the phone from my hand he was saying "No don't do that.." lol. Several sleepers after hitting the first one it was still working as normal. I don't get much trouble with reception either unlike a lot of expensive phones.
Gotta hand it to this little phone, it's taken a lot of punishment but weirdly that makes me respect it even more!

A friend of mine used to have one that bounced.  We tested it many, many times.  It never really got old!

lol
The back cover sometimes comes off and if I'm really unlucky the battery will fall out but you put it back together and it carries on like normal. It's dented and scratched on the back but books and covers eh?
