Please Login to Remove!

So i am with tmobile and i am pretty happy although there are some spots of low signal. i am debating whether to switch to another carrier or not. Tmobile in 95% of the time i have good signal i pay 59.99 a month 1000 min unl.text unl. internet unl. email. Verizon charges 79.98 fir 450 min ( although everyone i know has VZW) so the in network would cover. What do you guys think?

it really depends on what will benefit you the most. you are the only one that can answer that, noone here can answer it for you. Also, whatever you decide, you can try the network and the device out for between 14 and 30 days for all carriers, so be sure to ask about that when going to test it out.

It's a trade-off. TMo=best pricing. Verizon=excellent network coverage.

There's always the option of the 8320/8820/(and soon the 8120) and wifi/uma for those areas where coverage isn't great. If your home is in a dead spot then the wifi/uma offered by TMo is a great deal.

I have found that all cell companies have their faults, I just stayed with Tmobile bc Sprints CS was not what I wanted. IDK, it takes alot for me to switch though.

Arcangel, I can't see where you are, but the only thing I can add to what has been said is to tell you we had some dead areas here in PC FL that have since been fixed. Also, we gained EDGE in the time I've had TMO here. So depending on the market where you are, network coverage may improve and isn't necessarily static.

Yea I have had t-mobile for a little over 5 years, never had a single problem, get mediocre signal when I go to Mississippi...but its way back in the woods so its not really a problem. T-mobile= best prices and best customer service. My wife works for sprint and even she says the customer service is horrible compared to t-mobile (verizon has the same customer service as sprint almost).
