I had AT&T Wireless for 10 years, ever since it was PacBell. It was very good at the beginning, but then it became very bad in the Los Angeles area after they bought the old AT&T Wireless and they had to sell many cell sites to T-Mobile. Now T-Mobile is great! I just got T-Mobile and got the Nokia 5610 phone. I've had many, many phones and the 5610 is the best I've ever had. Very cool looking and works great. Don't pay attention to the reviews about the talk time on the phone. I never had a problem. I would recommend it to anyone. Well, I'm a happy camper now. Price is much better than all of the other carriers. The only reason to have AT&T Wireless is if you just have to have the iPhone. However, I've heard that if you purchase the iPhone from Europe, it will work with T-Mobile.
UPDATE--11/19/08 I am still very happy with T-Mobile. Very few dropped calls in the Los Angeles area and their Customer Service is very good, friendly and helpful. I would advise anyone who does not want to spend the money for Verizon (even though Verizon gets a signal in more places), to get T-Mobile over any of the other carriers (at least in the Los Angeles area). If you really want the iPhone, you can get a European version or an AT&T one and there is a way of unlocking it for T-Mobile--STAY AWAY FROM AT&T WIRELESS. YOU WILL BE VERY UNHAPPY WITH THEIR SERVICE!
UPDATE--7/20/09 Upgraded to a 3G Phone and have a much better signal than before. My suggestion, if you are having signal problems where you really need a signal (like at home, work, etc.) get a 3G Phone, even if you don't use Data....I don't.
UPDATE--2/25/10 Upgraded recently to the Android platform on one of their HTC phones, and have an even better 3G signal, even at home (which at times has been problematic). I really like the Android platform, and will stay with HTC phones for now....Only problem is that my G1 has poor battery life. But, I guess some issues always exist.
UPDATE 9/30/11 I am now living in Rio Rancho, NM, have switched back to AT&T, and am happy with the service here.
