    Virgin run on T-Mobile's backbone
    And my Desire has the same (poor..ish) reception in my livingroom as did my previous Nokia and Sony Ericsson units.

    I get a really poor signal at home, have to stand up in the bedroom to get even a weak signal. Hoping that Tmob is better in my area when the networks share transmitters from next month...
