Do Orange and T-Mobile still exist?

Do Orange and T-Mobile still exist or are they both Everything Everywhere now?

Yes they still exist. But they are also part of Everything Everywhere as well. There are essentially 3 brands now.

Orange
T-Mobile
EE (4G only)

From what i've heard from T-Mobile head office employees is that EE will probably be the final brand and Orange & T-Mobile will be merged into EE in the future. Not for a while though.

Judging by EE pricing expect to see the worst of each networks tariffs to survive into EE. And expect to see half their shops close over next year too.

Half the shops will almost definitely close, there's just no economic sense in every town/city having 2+ EE shops. As for the tariffs, of course they'll keep the crap ones, most people seem to be so shocking incapable for performing even the most simple maths that they have no idea how much their contract is actually costing them.

Knowing how packed Hull is with numerous city centre shopping centres and from what I recall seemingly phone shops in each and on the high street... Guessing there's about 7 EE stores in Hull city centre atm.
As long as some decent tariffs survive somewhere...

I haven't looked in Hull, but Nottingham has 2 EE shops within a 2 min walk of each other.

I just was looking after mentioning it, and there might be only 5, only :)
Must be said that EE's website* is horribly slow and convoluted and couldn't find anything on there, orange website must have a link to store locations somewhere but I couldn't find it, I think t-mobiles site store search shows them all though. (albeit in an awkward way)

*found it on mobile and yep same 5

Yeh a lot of the stores will be closing down next year some time apparently.

And i do agree about the EE website, i mean who designed that crap! Seriously i could have done a better job and i haven't used html in ages.

Is that 5 in Hull, 5 in Notts or 5 in both? That's not even mentioning the P4U and CPW shops that all towns and cities have which also sell EE, T-Mob and Orange products.

As for the EE site, I think they employed a blind, technophobic chimp to write it.

5 in Hull. Yep no shortage of p4u or cpw when I last went there either.

The site reminds me of the broadly unusable stores that started and died around the original web boom. Epitomised by boo.com...
