Do Orange and T-Mobile effectively have combined network coverage now? Do you end up on whichever signal is strongest??

By defauilt, if you are with Orange you will default to Orange until such a time as you lose signal, and then, if it's available, you switch to 'Orange-Tmobile'. The reverse is true for Tmobile customers. Of course you can select which provider of the two is strongest. In one part of my building, TMobile has better 3g speeds than Orange, so I manually swap. They are far from being a single network, but you won't notice it switch.

Also, stupidly your primary network (the one written on your SIM card) prioritise their own 2G network over the other network's 3G network, which is pretty useless from a consumer viewpoint.
Say you're on T-Mobile your networks will go:
1) T-Mobile 3G
2) T-Mobile 2G
3) Orange 3G
4) Orange 2G
So you end up with a slow T-Mobile connection being prioritised over a fast Orange connection. Stupid, eh?

Yes indeed., it sticks with your primary network for as long as possible, without considering the 3g aspect.
