Comment on "Mobile Phone Buying Experience"
by Ted — Jul 28
I had T-Mobile until 2003, when I switched to AT&T, which quickly became Cingular. I didn't switch because T-Mobile was bad, but because AT&T had the better deal. Well, I quickly found out how bad Cingular was shortly after the merger. More bars? Puhlease. I don't think so. Obviously, it totally depends upon your area, but my wife and I just spent $120 to break out Cingular contract and go back to T-Mobile. Areas where we would always without a doubt drop a call now are rock solid.

I talked to alot of people before we made the switch back, and it seems most everyone who had Cingular had some sort of problems with consistency in calling quality. Everyone I know who switched to Verizon is happy with the service, but complains about the high price. Verizon has the best network, knows it, and charges accordingly. T-Mobile is a good middle ground - better network than Sprint/Cingular, but not as good as Verizon. Of course, you get 2x the minutes for the same price with T-Mobile over Verizon, so it all comes down to what's important to you.
