Default netwok switching Orange/T-mobile

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I've switched my network selection mode to manual, selected scan and selected Orange. Seconds later it switches back to T-mobile, how do I stop this happening?
My provider is Orange.

Thank u

Wayne

Does Orange have roaming agreements with TMo? Maybe you are in an area that the Orange signal is too weak?

Orange and T-Mobile are now the same company in the UK, so the device and SIM card are picking the strongest signal, no matter your choice. The issue is that they have not changed the alpha tags to show the Everything Everywhere brand.

The name of the network that is shown on your screen. It's a alphanumeric translation of the officially assigned Mobile Country Code - Mobile Network Code (MCC-MNC).
