I am from north central Florida - been living here my whole life. While usually not traveling farther south than Orlando, and no further north than Jacksonville - I stay within what I would consider north central Florida (Jacksonville, DeLand, Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Seminole County, Leesburg, Clermont, Apopka - and everywhere in between).
I've had my T-Mobile account since 2000 - and been happy with it through the years. In north central Florida; especially inland, the network has grow very strong, and covers both the urban and rural inland areas. The coastal areas have always been covered due to Interestate 95 running through that area. As I've been with T-Mobile they have become an increasingly better value for both myself and my whole immediate family (as you can see in my signature). The cost breaks down to $24.99 per line (that gives me [per line]: Unlimited MyFaves, Unlimited Mobile-to-Mobile, Unlimited 9PM N/Ws, Unlimited SMS/MMS, Unlimited Dumbphone Data, and a 1500 anytime minute bucket to share between the five lines [plus the normal 500 call forwarding per line, voicemail, 3-way calling, call waiting, and caller ID]).
While the T-Mobile network has made vast improvements over the years, there are still some more rural areas that either have no service, or do not have adequate signal to establish reliable service - this is where the beauty of having Starbucks and Paneras dot almost everytown - cause I can use the UMA to make/recieve calls!
While with T-Mobile through these nine years; I've also used at&t and Sprint (both of which have been disconnected). While at&t beats T-Mobile in the size of their network; T-Mobile's quality trumps that of at&t (at least in my personal opinion). Sprint... Sprint's network is one of the best in the area! I just wanted to pull all my lines into one family plan to make it easier for everyone - so we choose T-Mobile; because for the whole family (of 5) they gave use the best bang for our buck!
T-Mobile. Connecting you when you need it most... disconnecting you when you need to connect with God's beautiful creation! Service is great in cities and highways, but in rural areas they leave you with just your surroundings. I encourage you to get T-Mobile, disconnect for a while!
I am glad that God is not like cell phone coverage. He does not hide behind mountains or loose us down long windy roads. The Lord levels mountains, and He makes our paths straight!
