I was just wondering...ive been with at&t for 3 or 4 years now...used to have tdma now have gsm. I just bought a s100 to use, and its an awesome phone, but i heard that tmobile is awesome too, and that at&t is bad to most people. in the area i travel, i get great coverage...but today i went to another area i dont go in a lot and get 1 bar...no bar...etc. It kept dropping and had no signal in various areas. I went to a tmobile store today and they have had gsm for a long time, when at&t had told me that att was the first to have it (in april or may 2002 i think is when they got it) Tmobile seems to have much better coverage, but is the service much better? The thing that screws me over <SNIP>
Well, T-Mobile has been good to me and works where I need it to work. Customer service is always good, too. I'm not sure where you are in the country, so I can't say for sure if T-Mobile's coverage would be adequate enough for you in your area.
Keep in mind with the family plan, you do get the roaming & long-distance included and I believe unlimited weekends(??), but the $6.99/mo option for unlimited weeknights cannot be added to the family plans - its not an option.
Since you already have phones, you can just go to the T-Mo store and setup an account, you do have 14 days to try out the service, and if for some reason you don't like it you can cancel and stick with AT&T.
As for AT&T telling you that they were first to have GSM in the country, ha ha ha!! That is definately a good one. Seems like sales people will tell anyone anything these days.
