Samsung Galaxy S2- Right outside of Chicago
Trust me I get frustrated with Tmobile, but at the end of the day the price and performance is second to none. Now before everyone thinks I work for TMobile let me say since the merger announcment there customer service has been hot garbage. So for all those people talking about how theyre leaving Tmobile thats fine, it looks like 600,000 more postpaid customers left this past quarter. What is dumb is when people compare Tmobile with Verizon or At&t when the cost is not even similiar. If you like the Iphone then obviously thats understandable, but the reason Tmo doesnt have it is cause of cost, and this may cost them in the end. Everyone has a right to complain, but just dont forget if they had prices like Verizon we would really be complaining. My Ex has a Thunderbolt on LTE and my S2 always beat her's on download, she destroyed me on upload, but who really uploads anything thats not going to dropbox.More importantly her family plan on Verizon(4 lines only 1 a smartphone) was $350 a month. On our plan we have 2 S2's and 2'sensations and our bill is around $195-$200 a month with unlimited talk, text, and 5gb of data on each line. Ive been with TMO 12 years and they do get on my nerves, but when I talk to friends and see how much they pay elsewhere I know Tmo is still the best for the MONEY. So there's nothing wrong with being frustrated or getting upset, trust me I cant stand Carly or whoever theyre ridiculous spokesman is, but when you compare carriers please take into account the cost difference.
Oh and Vegas just released the odds on what will happen first; Galaxy S3 realease or ISC Update for Tmo S2! All I can say is dont hold your breath and lets all hope the Galaxy S3 isnt the first Tmobile LTE phone slated for a December release, delayed till Feburary with a promised timely Jelly Bean update two weeks before Samsung releases the S4!
the way you entered the forum! Bringing facts and links to back it up with support as well. Awesome!
I agree, I am in NYC and have been with TMobile since they merged with Voice Stream (started with them in Jan 2002) and I have no need to switch to Verizon or AT&T. I get the same if not better reception as my friends do with their more expensive plans. I just did a speed test sitting in the middle of my apartment on the second floor of a 3 story building.

I even got my friend to switch from Verizon to TMobile. I have never had issues with any Customer Service Rep. They have always been very helpful. Even the one that slipped and told me about a promotion that I was never invited to, but they had to honor it giving me and my husband brand new GS2 with $0 out of pocket and I was one month away from even getting my full upgrade discount.
Great post! You'd have LOVED the local news broadcast (DFW) when the new iPhone was "all the rage" and AT&T was touting their "4G" performance (how it was faster than T-Mobile)! She started up both phones; started their browsers; and surfed to the news channel's website.... well, she snapped right to the site on the Tmo phone.... but the AT&T phone? Crickets, only crickets... . Serves the reporter right.... imagine, believing her own copy!
