    I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    On one hand, reception would generally improve across the country for T-Mobile customers, and it would mean we effectively had a Vodaphone signal in our offices (currently only T-Mobile works inside).

    On the other hand.... I've never really likes Vodafone. don't know why, just haven't

    as long as they don't brand everything & lock it down like they currently do on their own phones.

    Always had better service from Vodafone business, moved there from T-Mobile. Can't say I'd be too disappointed if T-mobile did disappear.

    T-mobile and 3 are the only uk operators to offer anything reasonable for mobile data communication.. This will be a disaster if it goes ahead. Prices will rise anywhere between 10 and 80x for data transfer..

    I really hope not, t-mobiles customer service is beyond good from my experience and i can only imagine it going downhill with Vodaphone!

    Really? I have contracts with Vodafone for mobile broadband, they offered me something that wasn't widely available at the time I signed up (7.2mbps and a modem to support it) for the same price as others.

    Bonus is that coverage in Northern Scotland is great, something T-mobile and 3 sorely lack (it's non-existant in many places above Fort William).

    I believe Vodaphone have the most up to date 3.5g packages and technology. T-Mobile do have some of the best price plans on mobiles though but people do say their coverage is second worse to Orange. VodaPhone, O2 and Three are more than enough to choose from.
