tmobile is garbage and will continue to be. anyone who actually drives outside the city limits can attest to this.

dea john i appreciate your enthusiasm and competitive nature, but anyone who has used tmobile and has switched to at&t or verizon knows the truth. your company has a long way to go before talking crap about at&t or verizon

I call T-Mobile bulls**t myself. I just went on there an see what their cost on service and phone. So this who it works out. 1st S3 $69.99 the next 2 S3 $218.00 for both. So it's $287.99 plus tax so far right. Family plan $80.00 for 2 line plus $10.00 for each additional line o total $90.00 plus. Not bad right? WAIT not finish...It's $20 per line for unlimited 4G, so it's $150.00 right? STILL not finish it's additional $20.00 per phone for 24 months. That's a total of $210.00 per month plus tax. $210.00 times 24 months=$5,040 plus tax. Each phone will cost you $549.99 for the first one than another $589.99 for each additional phones after 2 years. So how is this compare to Sprint's unlimited package. So they claim their unlimited package is a better deal.

The bulls**tter is bulls**tting the people that only sees the value at time of sign up only....this is why I left T-Mobile a long time ago. They haven't been living up to their expectations!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this plan makes no sense for a family. I have ATT with 4 lines all smartphones on a share everything 10 gig plan and pay monthly after my company discount $210. Same plan on TMO is $160. GREAT DEAL you say but WAIT I don't have any phones! Personally I have 2 gs3's and 2 iphones. so to get these 4 phones on TMO's plan would run me roughly $2300 outright. At $100 down and $20 a month for each phone thats an extra $80 to my $160 and voila now I'am paying $240. So John, I guess its you that must stop the Bull$#!t. What this is really about is TMO getting paid upfront which I have no problem with but lets just call it what it is and lets stop the unnecessary grandstanding.

Can they still offer subsidized prices without two year contracts?

Too bad he didn't back it up with any worthwhile plans that I would actually want. I've been off contract with a grandfathered family plan for years now. And T-mobile is the worst network for any sort of phone compatibility with their terrible exclusive AWS spectrum. He sure spouts a lot of bulls**t himself.
