I tried t-mobile, but the coverage just wasn't good enough for me. I need my phone to have at least 3g data all the time, and I didn't have that on T-Mobile. Verizon is actually the only carrier that has coverage at one place I travel to.

I'd love to go with T-Mobile, but they need to invest in their network more first.

They were profitable though.......they were bleeding postpaid customers, but gaining prepaid customers.

That's really odd, I'm down in Columbus and pretty much anywhere in the city I get HSPA+

How long ago did you try it? I hear the Tmobile from 4-5 years ago is not the same one that's around today, as in they've basically turned the company around.

You need to travel and go out some more. There are other continents in this world besides North America.
So Asia and Europe and heck even the midde east, are all guinea pigs to serve the American people? Oh I see. There's a reason they're the guinea pigs, think about it for a second. (money)

It's funny some people think America is still the greatest and most powerful nation on the Earth.
We actually fall short in a lot of important areas.

Back on topic....
I've had no complaints for T-Mobile so far. Decent service, cheap (compared to others), and no lying reps.

We ordered a contract from ATT and they told us over the phone it was unlimited service for like $120 a month. Which insane price to me for only 1 single phone.

But that's not even enough, they marked it down as limited plan without telling us and charged us $100 in overages in the first month.

Talk about a rough phone call to ATT.

Its funny how some people on this Forum hop on this train of "Murica' ain't the greatest anymore." Guess what, we kinda are, we kinda will be, and for the the last 60 years we've had the largest number of technological patents out of any other nation on Earth.

I love my country but we really need to drop this line of thinking. Contrary to popular belief the rest of the world aren't just cavemen waiting for us to make them civilized lol

I love you but you really need to stop reading hipster doomsday magazines. Stop spouting the same nonsense that the media spoon feeds you. America is by far, the leader in modern technology.

Yep.

Right, so because someone gets a product before us, they're ahead technologically? Tell yah what, just because americans don't get Porsches due to Emission laws, is our auto technology eons behind?

You need to stop traveling and look around America. As for me, I've been to 5, lived on 5, and seen all 5.

OT: This is a great thing done by T-Mobile for those who simply can't afford a smartphone otherwise. I for one, sit on a 55$ plan, I'd hope on this in a heartbeat if I didn't have my trusty Lumia 710.

EDIT: Edited to be less confrontational.

So technological patents determines how great a nation is now?

Didn't realize this.

Just for giggles, can you provide me with evidence supporting this conjecture?

BTW, I live in America.

Not disputing the criterion for which makes a country the "greatest", but when it comes to peer-reviewed research papers and spending(R&D), we far outnumber any other nation. Where we are falling short is per capita spending and research but we're still competitive in that area as well ranking 6th in the world.

why are you people comparing prices from at&t with t-mobile, obviously youll pay less for tmobile seeing as how their coverage is complete crap while at&t is really good.
