My monthly plan on T-Mobile is substantially cheaper than the same on Cingular, but more importantly, I travel internationally a lot, and T-Mobile's international rates are MUCH cheaper than Cingular's. Probably about half the price.

I pay $100/mo for 5000 minutes, an old rate plan TMo no longer offers. No way I'll ever give it up. Customer service is top notch, the network is plenty broad for my needs, int'l and data rates are cheaper than the competition too (as data should be given the slower speeds).

I love TMo and am looking forward to swapping my 8700 for an 8320

You are absolutely 100% correct, there is NO substitute for real world testing to see if there is coverage in the areas you need it.

I travel internationally for business and pleasure frequently. What I've enjoyed about Cingular is it always works. I have never been without coverage.

When I pack for a long trip I bring a few of my favorite phones. Then once I've arrived there I have some nice choices of phones to use. I have nothing to worry about, I always have coverage.

Peace of mind, and a good phone..... Priceless.....

My plan is a BIS plan - But yes there are BES 'minutes and mail' plans available.

BES 1000 minutes and mail - $69+taxes
BES 1500 minutes and mail - $89+taxes
Then essentially what I have is cheaper than the BES plan. I broke it down a few posts up.
