T-Mobile sees its highest activations yield ever thanks to its Father's Day promotion?
As we're confident that T-Mobile stores across the country are reeling over the massive one day sale from its Father's Day promotion that they managed to survive through, it seems unanimous that it was a huge success for them. There are reports already floating around indicating that yesterday's blow out sale set s new record yesterday for the number four wireless carrier in the country – it's estimated that their retail channel managed to dish up 110,000 customers with 99,000 of them being postpaid. Apparently there was non-stop business boiling over in the Western region of the country where they seemed to out pace others. We'd imagine that the final tally may look a bit more promising when you consider that both Amazon and RadioShack also offered their own promotions for their T-Mobile phones. Big Magenta surely managed to stir up things this week already as we head anticipate one busy schedule ahead of us.

Sorry, Replika, everything you say may be true for your area or in your experience, but to make such a blanket remark is ridiculous! I've had T-Mo since 2003 and not only do I have great reception, but their customer service is second to none. I've had AT&T and Verizon as previous carriers , any they were both the pits, especially their customer service if you had a problem! Everyone I know with Sprint says their reception is awful, as well as their CS. While I really wanted an iPhone, nothing could persuade me to join the disgruntled masses who use AT&T.

I mean yeah... Replika...just because you had a bad experience with T-Mobile doesn't mean that T-Mobile sucks everywhere. I mean, think about it... although you're being an asshat right now, none of us think you're an asshat ALL the time...

Sorry to hear TMO sucks in your area, I have Verizon and AT&T personally, but quite a few of my friends have TMO without any problems. I traveled with one of them and he actually has had coverage in a few places that I didn't. You would think AT&T would have had coverage in all the same places, but they didn't. I stick with Verizon due to their coverage in some small towns I travel through that TMO doesn't cover. I would rank coverage as follows.... 1. Verizon 2. Sprint (due to roaming agreements, they're closest to Verizon's coverage, but not there...) 3. TMO 4. AT&T

thats a pretty accurate listing of coverage. The sad fact is pricing doesnt follow coverage and people dont realize that.

Sprints' 3G? HAHAHA Their network is a joke I think you meant 40x slower then t-mo and AT&T. LOL T-Mobile's 3G is faster then sprints 4G so what the hell are you talking about bitch? http://technews.am/conversations/pocketnow.com/phonescoop_agrees_t_mobiles_3g_is_better_than_sprint s_4g

coverage yea, VZW and Sprint have the best 3g coverage of the carriers. CDMA covers a wider area per tower. The fastest belongs to Tmobile. So, if your in the boondocks, suure, ur prob better off w sprint and VZW. But if your in a populated area or a city, your not gonna notice too much of a difference between carriers. But you will notice a speed difference if your in a top city. Tmobiles fastest 21mbit Sprints Wimaxx 12mbit sprints 3g 3.0mbit ATT fastest 7.2mbit VZW fastest 3.0mb

I could be wrong, but I'm thinking T-Mobile can't be that bad compared to Sprint. If it was, it would of bled customers over the last several years like Sprint has. Even band aids like the EVO hasn't stopped the bleeding.

Sprint bleeding customers is the biggest misconception in the wireless industry the customers that left were the the customers that were acquired in the nextel/nextel partners acquisition which they highly overpaid for considering their customer base was giving anybody over 18 with 0 or awful credit history the i850 camera phone free out the door with only a $100 deposit and 12.99 per month asl fee or the type who had a 32.99 800 min talk plan nationwide free ptt that wanted to upgrade from their antique device and keep their plan which was impossible. When you sell someone with awful credit history a phone out the door for $100 flat and they dont pay their bill one month (why they have awful credit) and then have to pay 2 bills or more together in their mind its cheaper to let it go to collection and buy a new one in someone elses name this is the true reason why sprint was not retaining customers vzw only sells to people with good credit and att has the iphone which all fanboys will buy no matter the retail cost or monthly cost.
