Re: What a waste.
said by yyzlhr:A great "un-carrier" move, huh?
T-Mobile should really spend their money accelerating their network improvements instead of wasting it on this type of silly litigation.

Its Happening This plan is already in progress, I am seeing less and less EDGE, and more HSDPA on my ex-AT&T iPhone 4 and Motorola Atrix.
If T-Mobile is really serious about replacing every single EDGE tower with more modern equipment, this really takes care of a lot of their issues. No more dial-up speed towers, and father signal range.
I can see how some people will immediately comment and state how terrible T-Mobile is. Well, if it doesn't work for you, in your specific locality,your free to continue paying AT&T or VZ. Hey, the lower prices T-Mobile introduced may actually help you out and lower your T or VZ bill!
Hey, once they start turning a profit, perhaps they will begin network expansion into new territories.
As for T-Mobile being "late to the game" this is true, but D-Telekom was putting TMUS on its deathbed for a quick sale that never happened, holding back progress by a good 7 years. The next 7 years are looking good.
Around here, rural coverage is passable. EDGE along major highways and roads. Sometimes random LTE/HSDPA on towers where the EDGE equipment died.
So, when will we get covered? I love T-Mobile, had them for almost four years with a gap between sign ups. I have excellent coverage at work, friends, up and down I-66, but for some reason, not in my neighborhood. We sort of get coverage on the third floor, sometimes.
Sad thing is that I'm less then a mile from a major DC area mall with a T-Mobile store in it. That store is the only place in the mall with coverage.
I keep thinking I should switch back to AT&T and wait it out, but we spend about $60 a month less with T-Mobile then we would with At&T, and I have voip at home.
I voted for Snoopy!
Re: So, when will we get covered? Why not just use WiFi calling at home? or just get a cell-fi from T-Mobile?
Where I live in Phoenix, T-Mobile is the only thing that actually works in here, as VZ is one bar of EvDO, AT&T has to go outside, and Sprint is roaming on that one bar of VZW signal at 1x.
It's all about location, location, location. I've had T-Mobile since 2006 in several different cities and i've personally never had any issues with them, even driving across country my phone works reasonably well, especially for what i pay on my old grandfathered GetMore plan.
