A bank of seven ‘sending’ phones are used to text messages to seven ‘receiving’ mobile handsets. There is a pair of phones for each network (MNO) and two mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs).

The mobile networks being tested are:

  • Orange UK (now part of Everything Everywhere)
  • O2 UK
  • Three UK
  • T-Mobile (now part of Everything Everywhere)
  • Vodafone UK

The mobile virtual networks being tested are:

  • Virgin Mobile (hosted on Everything Everywhere)
  • Tesco (hosted on O2 UK)

To replicate normal usage, the receiving phones are switched-off prior to the texts being sent, and are then switched on again after an appropriate period has lapsed.
