Sprint or T- Mobile

Recommended Posts

Well another 2 years has gone by and its time to re-up with Sprint. I was interested in T-Mobile though because of the five favorites plan. I guess what I would like some feedback on is how is the T-Mobile network in the Mid Atlantic region?

I've been with Sprint for almost 5 years (maybe more) and it sure wasnt by choice. I hate sprint. The only reason I would stay with them is if you use your phone for a lot of stuff and want to get the $100 everything plan. Otherwise, if you get good reception with T Mobile (they should have  a chart on their website if I remember correctly) SWITCH!

Word.

I'm a 3rd party rep for Sprint/ATT and I think Verizon is probably the most solid company out there.

T-Mobile's coverage is just as good as, or better, than Verizon and ATT.  Plus they've won the J.D. Power's award for customer service 7 times in a row.

Class act.  :)

Glenn thanks for that info, I may have to investigate once my verizon plan expires.

I've had T-mobile for about a year now.  I can't think of anywhere I've been that I was unable to make a call from.

Here's the thing about cell phone providers: you need to find the one that fits you. What fits you may not fit someone else. It's like making an argument about what's the best auto manufacturer, everyone's view is different.

T-mobile here in Wichita is a joke. You can drive down the main highway in town and drop calls. AT&T is almost as bad. How it is where you live might be 100% different. I wouldn't suggest T-mobile to someone in Western KS, just the same as I wouldn't suggest Alltel to someone in KC, MO. Depending where you're at and what you need your cell phone to do, you'll need a company tailored to your needs.

I'm unsure of Verizon, T-mobile, and other companies practices but Sprint and AT&T both have a 30-day risk free policy. Use those 30 days to your advantage and try the phone and service to it's fullest extent. That's the best advice I can give you.  8-)

T-mobile has a 30-day return policy as well.  In addition, they're the ONLY company that tells you exactly what kind of coverage is in your area before you buy.  No fluffy marketing map that shows one big colored map - the truth!  They show the different signal strengths and gaps in your area.

I have att, Im about to switch to T-mobile. Sprint is crap, but its all relative to where you live. Most companies can pull up a detailed service coverage map on the computer in the store and it will show you where the signal is strongest. I know t-mobile an att do, not sure about sprint (if service isn't strong in particular area, they may be hesitant to show you).

EDIT: sorry didn't see your post Glenn.

I had nextel before sprint bought it and when they bought it they sent me a thing saying how they where going to make service better and this and that.  Nextel sucked rear before sprint as far as the phone part and sometimes the direct connect sucked too.   Any ways sprint hasn't really done anything that I can tell to make it better actually it's starting to get worse.    

My brother had nextel/sprint and he got tired of it and shipped them down the road and signed on with verizion.   In our area they are worse than sprint.   I use to cuss sprint alot but everytime I call my brother or he calls me verizon drops the call.    

My freind bought a criket phone and I thought it would be crap too but it works very well.   You might check them out.

I just checked their website - T-Mobile has all their Samsung phones for free, free shipping, and free activation (no activation fee).  Looks like it just this weekend though.

Cricket works off of ATT's GSM network.
