operators in Central and Eastern Europe. Globally, T-Mobile has some 150 million
subscribers, making it the world's tenth largest mobile phone service

Kingdom's Vodafone and Spain's Telefónica. T-Mobile UK has recently become part of a joint venture with France

in Bonn, Germany, T-Mobile is present in ten other European countries

In late 2005, Deutsche Telekom
attempted to acquire rival mobile network operator O2, but was beaten by Spain's Telefónica.
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.
In Germany, its home market,
T-Mobile is the largest mobile phone operator with almost 16 million subscribers (As of January
2008[update]), closely followed by its primary
rival, Vodafone. The highly profitable GSM network in Germany is scheduled to be
supplemented and ultimately replaced by UMTS, for which T-Mobile spent EUR 8.2 billion in August 2000 to acquire one of the six licenses for
On July 1, 1989, West Germany's
state-owned postal monopoly, Deutsche Bundespost (DBP) was reorganized, with telecommunications consolidated in a
new Deutsche Bundespost
Telekom unit; this was renamed Deutsche
Telekom in 1995, and began to be privatized in 1996.
The analog first-generation C-Netz ("C
Network", marketed as C-Tel) was Germany's first true mobile phone network (the A
and B networks, also owned by the post office, had been previous radiotelephone systems), and was introduced in 1985.
Following German reunification in 1990, it was extended to the
former East Germany.
On July 1, 1992, the Deutsche Bundespost Telekom began to operate Germany's first GSM network, along with the C-Netz, as its DeTeMobil subsidiary. The GSM 900 MHz frequency
band was referred to as the "D-Netz", and Telekom named its service D1; the private
consortium awarded the second license (formerly Mannesmann, now Vodafone) chose
the equally imaginative name D2. In 1996, as Deutsche Telekom began to brand its
subsidiaries with the T- prefix, the network was
renamed T-D1 and DeTeMobil became T-Mobil; the C-Netz, in the process of being wound down,
was not rebranded, and was shut down in 2000. In 2002, as Deutsche Telekom consolidated
its international operations, it anglicized the T-Mobil name as T-Mobile, although sometimes also using the
name T-D1 within Germany. It is still common for Germans to refer to T-Mobile and Vodafone
as D1 and D2.
introduced short message service (SMS) services in 1994 and began
a prepaid service, Xtra, in 1997.
On April 1, 2010, after the T-Home and T-Mobile German
operations merged to form Telekom
Deutschland GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, the T-Mobile
brand was discontinued in Germany and replaced with the Telekom brand.
The T-Mobile ring tone was
composed by Lance Massey.
