Selling old mobile phone may lead consumers to new super-network

People who are considering selling their old mobile phones may wish to sign up to Orange or T-Mobile when it comes to finding a replacement.

As part of the firms' merger, which sees them form Everything Everywhere, customers with each of the networks will be offered access to the other at no extra cost.

This should mean consumers will be able to make calls and send text messages from more locations than ever before, as their coverage gets wider.

Tom Alexander, chief executive officer at Everything Everywhere, says: "This is the beginning of an ambitious plan to give our customers instant access to whatever they want, wherever they are - instant access to everything everywhere."

It is thought the move will benefit about 30 million mobile users, with those selling used phones perhaps in a position to add to this number.

Orange has recently announced a range of new and updated tariffs for users that are designed to increase rewards for topping up with credit.
