against T-Mobile. According to the ruling T-Mobile UK must allow Truphone application to be used on cell phones operating on T-Mobile contracts.

Truphone’s ability to get an injunction against T-Mobile in this case must be showing as a five bar signal on other wireless phone providers. Those must be in drawing rooms with their lawyers rethinking how to deal with these industry disruptors, perhaps forcing them to aadapt and provide their own mobile VoIP. The Truphone case is the first of it's kind that interim relief was granted against a mobile network operator under the Competition Act in UK.
