Wink Whens T-mobile gonna get better coverage

Please Login to Remove!

when will tmobile get better coverage? i live in new hampshire and theres so many places i cant go but others can like sprint, nextel, and verizon can. i understand verizon works everywere but come on sprints service is better? i really am thinking of going to sprint/nextel and paying the $99.99 a month for unlimited bb plan, 300 out going minutes, unlimited incomeing. i pay $79.99 now with tmobile for 1500 whenever minutes, unlimited text and unlimited blackberry data. so a $20 difference isnt that much. plus i get direct connect and better coverage. does anyone know about coverage in the new england area getting better?

thanks

From press reports DT, the parent company of T-Mobile, it looking at options ranging from selling T-Mobile USA to upgrades costing up to $10bUSD. So I doubt you're going to see any improvement in service for another year at best.

There is a reason T-Mobile is the low cost leader, they have least national coverage of the other four players. I think Verizon has a Blackberry data and minutes bundle for unlimited data and 1350 minutes for $99; check the web site.

I have T-Mobile in NJ/NYC. Recently I tried Cingular but decided to stick with T-Mobile. The service with T-Mobile is better, I get 1000 more minutes (but no long distance and a regional plan), and save about $35/month. If I had problems with coverage I'd switch in a minute.

I recently switched from T-Mobile to Verizon. I have to say, I really had a great experience with T-Mobile but I did need better national coverage for travelling. However, if you are in a T-Mobile area, mostlikely you'll have some of best service around. In my experience, where T-Mobile has service it's great but they just don't have a lot of coverage. Here in Chicago, T-Mobile is outstanding. If you need a lot of national coverage, I'd say don't go with T-Mobile. But, if you just need great service, and T-Mobile is in your area, go with TMO. Great pricing, great CS, great service.
