T-Mobile offers tips to those in the path of Hurricane Irene
The carrier also has some tips for customers who might be affected by the Hurricane. The other day, we showed you a video from the Weather Channel with some tips for cell phone use during and after a hurricane, and similar to what Verizon's spokesman said, T-Mobile suggests texting instead of making voice calls as the odds of a text message getting through are better during periods of high-usage. If you do make a voice call, T-Mobile suggests that you make it a short one. If your phone has Wi-Fi connectivity, use it because you will be able to make calls with your in-home data connection in case the carrier's network is out or heavily congested. Finally, T-Mobile suggests that you charge your phone's battery fully prior to the approach of the storm. The carrier adds that you should obtain a vehicle charger so that you can keep your handset working even if the power is out.

T-Mobile, T-Mobile, T-Mobile... If someone would have let me read this article without me knowing anything about cell phone providers and then told me that T-Mobile is number four in the nation I wouldn't believe it. I wonder if other cell phone proviers are doing the same thing as T-Mobile.

T-Mobile and Sprint are the only character that have emotions

2 things I have decided about with T-Mobile:
1) I really, really wish that T-Mo was offered in our area. Much like Sprint, they do not have the largest selection of devices, but they have GREAT selection of devices. Their speeds are very good, and where they have reception it seems to be fairly reliable. They have good customer service, and take an interest in creating good P.R. where they can. I really do like companies that try to get ahead of problems, and at least T-Mobile gives it a shot. If I could, I would be a T-Mobile customer as long as it was an option.
2) I cannot believe they are on the verge of going belly up considering everything in item #1. Just seems unfair.

Plus, T-Mobile has the hot Canadian model as their spokesperson!
