As to whether you should switch FM verizon, it depends on whether you had a good experience with them and if you can live with a slower data network. T mobile is cheaper but their edge network is much slower than Verizon's evdo network. T mobile is supposed to get a 3g network on line but that may not happen for a few months and who knows how long it'll take for their whole net to be upgraded. If speed is what you like and you can live with a locked down phone and a higher priced data plan and you like verizon, then stick with them. If cost is more of a factor and you're willing to wait for tmo to get their 3g network up and tweaked, then by all means go with them. Then again both networks have wifi, so speed is off the table unless you're not in an area with a wifi hotspot.
