T-Mobile is a German provider, owned by Deutsche Telekom. It operates several GSM networks in Europe and the United States. T-Mobile also has financial stakes in mobile operators in Central and Eastern Europe. Globally, T-Mobile has some 150 million subscribers,[1] making it the world's eighth largest mobile phone service provider by subscribers and the third largest multinational after the United Kingdom's Vodafone and Spain's Telefónica. T-Mobile UK has recently become part of a joint venture with France Telecom's mobile network provider, Orange U.K.; together they make the UK's largest mobile operator, called Everything Everywhere.

Based in Germany, T-Mobile is present in ten other European countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia and the United Kingdom) as well as the United States.

In late 2005, Deutsche Telekom attempted to acquire rival mobile network operator O2, but was beaten by Spain's Telefónica.[2]

In March 2008, the company announced its plan to acquire Siemens Wireless Modules (now known as Cinterion Wireless Modules) as part of the JOMA consortium. The Siemens Wireless Modules spin off to Cinterion Wireless Modules was concluded on 1 May 2008.
