hold faith. T-Mo will begin implementing the 700 mhz spectrum which will put its coverage on par with Verizon and ATT.. better building penetration and further coverage. Add to that, the fact that they're switching all their 2G to LTE, you can expect the network to become extremely reliable.

I just made the switch to T-mobile from sprint and I am having a great experience with them more than I ever expected to have.

I hope soon. If so I'll be switching back to T-Mobile. No service inside for me from Tmo.

So you agree that T-Mobile is somewhere behind the big two...I too hope they improve their service. It does me no good if they're not performing well against their competitors. But on one hand, you talk about how bad Verizon is, and on the other, you admit that T-Mobile is behind. Be objective

Behind? No I don't think that's the case. They have extensive coverage, most of which is 2G (which is being converted to LTE). You need to understand how to differentiate Kaintae. Nobody is bashing Verizons network or saying it's behind, rather people are VERY displeased with Verizons unwillingness to listen to customers, all while it charges obscene prices.

Clearly no one is bashing Verizon's network. I was referring to your critique about their phone subscribers being down, even though their net subscribers are up. I'm not saying you're wrong about those numbers. But you're clearly biased. But to address your point about LTE and edge...even in the 3g days, T-Mobiles network wasn't up to their standard in termsbof coverage. T-Mobile wasn't even trying to make that argument. As I mentioned before...I hope they succeed, because competition is good. But the numbers don't suggest that customers are dissatisfied with verizons network and prices.

All I know is I will be going GSM from now on...too many positives to it...and I wish I had done it sooner. I was caught in the Verizon mystic.....but not anymore.
