They are expensive but i think your paying for both better service & customer service. Maybe i just lucked out but thats my two cents. I can say tmobile would be my 2nd choice.

Well i see this thread went well! Eric i know you like tmobile but you dont have to be soo vocal about it. Everybodies tastes are different.
@fixxxer2008 u also don't have to be so vocal about Verizon but that's just me, all I did was make a suggestion to save someone from a potential disaster

@Tinkerbell u can use the coverage check tool and u can also use a prepaid plan for a month or two then goto a classic or value plan that's what I did after I found I was pleased with the speeds and coverage,also prepay coverage may be slightly smaller than postpaid coverage so if there's prepay coverage the postpay coverage will be the same if not better.

@gullzway all carriers do that with their coverage maps. Shoulda looked that up before making that post.

Verizon shows the whole US 3g coverage. Click on data, hit zoom once, then zoom back out!
Coverage Locator - Verizon Wireless
Same with AT&T
AT&T Coverage Viewer

US Cellular does as well
U.S. Cellular Voice And Data Maps | Cell Phone Coverage | U.S. Cellular

On Sprints you have to hit zoom once to see 3g coverage.

On T-Mobile you have to Zoom in "10" times, practically street view, before it shows you whether it's 2g or 3g. They're probably hoping you don't go to that much trouble, as my brother didn't, before signing a contract and realizing you're in 2G Coverage!!

same thing,still have to zoom,AT&T color codes 2G and 3G alike so it's hard to tell the difference. Quit hating because this network is faster.

Oh and carriers have this tool where u can enter your address or zip code and then it will zoom into the area so u can see all the coverage in the area. Your bro should've done this and he didn't so this is the consequence of it and as a result he should be blaming himself and not t-mobile.

Ok, I need to retake math class then. Last time I checked 3000-5000 wasn't faster than 6000-9000!

my max speed trumps yours easily, I get that when I have full signal. 3000-5000 is way more than enough and impressive at my signal level I must say. HSPA in nature is much faster than EvDO so your comparisons are useless.
