My exact thoughts...If I could I'd sell my gnex on verizon and buy nexus4 on Tmobil.Being this is my communication life line I can't chance the poor coverage in my area.

Don't have a problem with Tmobile voice or text features, data, now that's a whole different animal. Inconsistent speeds and coverage in the same geographical area, are the norm.

They have terrible coverage in my area or I might look at them.. Sham too, that's pretty enticing considering my AT&T bill is 180.00 per month between my wife and I and we have unlimited talk and text but 6 gigs between us both.

Here in the UK it's great, I'm paying £25 for unlimited data with throttle and tethering and minutes.

Meh. $30 for 5GB and 100 min is still better for most...on Tmob prepaid.

Thats the plan I have my son on for his first smartphone. Coupled with the Nexus4, it can't be beat.

Their coverage sucks in my area. I always liked gsm networks more than CDMA and Ive managed to stick with Att, though their customer service sucks, their coverage and speeds is to my liking and thats good enough for me.

It's nice to see non contract users on tmobile get the opportunity to enjoy the unlimited data on tmobile. They will get to enjoy the use of their devices with worry or being slowed down. People better get use to hearing plenty from t-mobile and me in 2013....

I think there a study shows that the money american pay for their phone bills and the service they get is very expensive compare to the rest of the world. europe have faster speed and asia has cheaper plans, most ppl have off contract phones. in the us we have high phone bills

I don't understand why anyone goes for phone subsidies and 2 year contracts these days. Prepaid is the way to go. It's simple math.
