It might be that very reason

Imagine the horror - every celeb 'hacked' by News International turns out to have been on *other* networks.

@Ally

Actually, that'd be a bit of a coup wouldn't it? It might imply that the other networks were fundamentally less secure than EE's...

Unlikely, though. Just saying.

WTF?

Less secure?

The phones have been hacked by guessing the voice mail PIN numbers....

As far as I'm aware, all of the mainstream mobile phone providers use a PIN for security and publish the default.

Any suggestions on how they can be "more" secure?

How about...

... by forcing PIN change on first use?

OT but

"Everything Everywhere" is the worst company name I have ever heard of. It is truly awful and cringe-worthy.

That has to be a contender too. More Than what? When it comes to insurance it should be called How Much?

In my case it meant (considerably) "More Than" Admiral ultimately charged me for my car insurance. By about £900. For third party only vs fully comp. WT, and furthermore, F?

Personal reasons.

What, as in; "Personally I can't stand working for these tossers any longer."?

I love this

"Swantee currently runs France Telecom's European operations, excluding France."

Hmmm... so he's going to be in charge of Everything Everywhere, excluding everywhere or is it excluding everything??

I'll be following him out the door as soon as I can

As a customer or Orange they should call themselves Nothing, Anywhere.

Even within London its coverage is cack. Between N5 and N1 I go through three holes in the network where there is no coverage at all.

Why they bother having the different networks is ridiculous and whilst you can use both networks non 3g networks, orange customers can't use T-mobiles 3G nework due to some technical issue that they don't know how to fix or how long it will take. but they do offer to find out, but then never ring you back with the answer...

Then there are the ever so great hold queues for customer services where you eventually end up talkign to ploite but ineffective agents in Asia.

Don't think I will be renewing
