Update May 2014
Network speed indoors has improved, also better network in my travels in California (urban areas). Modify my VoIP codec and got better VoIP quality.
Basically my original cons have diminished or disappeared. T-mobile works great for my location.
I upgraded my phone to a Nexus 4, pop in the SIM and done. I love unlocked phones and no contract plans.
I urge people to buy a T mobile SIM and checkout coverage where you are. No need to activate the SIM just checkout home and work coverage. If that looks reasonable then activate and try a month of prepaid.
Original Aug 2012
I got an unsubsidized phone and got the 5 GB data, unlimited text and 100 min for $30 prepaid plan.
Lot of data for a good price.
No contract and unlimited text if you use that.
VoIP over wifi work great
Few voice minutes if VoIP does not work.
Data speed indoors is not good the UMTS 1700/2100 MHZ does not penetrate walls well.
The Data speed is uneven so VoIP does not always work well.
I have Google voice as the main number so with no contract I can switch to straight talk or other MVNO.
