Good to see them recovering. When it comes to carriers, Verizon is the best if you want coverage, and T-Mobile is the best if you want value. Luckily for me, I live in an area where I T-Mobile has 4G and Verizon is stuck on 3G, so I get to enjoy both value and coverage. :)

T-Mobile's definitely a favorite of mine because of what they've accomplished in moving from a strict 2G value play a few years ago to a national player.
But they're definitely not the value they once were with the new plans. The subsidy transparency's a great thing for the consumer -- especially if the others adopt it -- but where a family might save $30-$50 on T-Mobile once, it's now closer to parity (under $20) with Verizon and AT&T. That'll mean it'll have to rely that much more on network performance and less on dollars and cents.
I'm not so sure that's a good thing for the budget-minded

Well, now that they have the iPhone, get ready for those margins to crunch tighter.
