Nutshell Mobile folds


MVNO fronted by former Three and Orange executives Gordon Webber and Gareth Jones goes under after a year in operation, Mobile News understands

London based MVNO Nutshell Mobile has ceased trading just over a year after it was launched, Mobile News understands.

The company which ran off the Three’s network launched on March 15 last year and pitched itself to disenfranchised customers who were unable to secure a contract on larger operators.

It was started by by former Orange and Three sales chief Gareth Jones and former Three commercial and business development director Gordon Webber.

Webber (pictured) was also head of sales at Orange between 1994-2003. He fronted the company as its chief executive and was unavailable for comment when contacted by Mobile News.

Industry sources have confirmed the closure with one saying all customers had been refunded for the products they held with the company at its time of closure.

Nutshell Mobile’s website has also been removed for the internet.


  1. I was also the user of Nutshell Mobile, and I have not been refunded by the company. Can any one tell how can I be refunded from the company that it has been already closed???

  2. As a customer of Nutshell Mobile I can actually state that I had no idea what was happening. I tried to contact them when my monthly minutes weren't renewed, but there was no response. I cannot speak for all clients, however they did not notify me in anyway that they had ceased operation, and have not reimbursed my money. It seems they just stopped answering the phones, closed the website and ran away leaving customers out of pocket.
