I used to be an independant contractor for T-Mobile. They gave me a phone to use. At the same time I kept my own phone which was/is an A T & T phone. In the metropositan areas both worked fine and I didn't have any more or any less problems with either. In the rural areas off the beaten path, so to speak, much of the time I had to rely on my A T & T phone. If you were near major highways, both worked about the same. Both had occasional dead spots but usually in different places. I think T-Mobile is installing new sites and upgraded equipemnt at a faster rate than A T & T and that is a good thing. BTW I am talking about the bottom 1/4 of Texas service area. Your service may vary. Different markets are...... uh, different. And for what its worth, T-Mobile issued A T & T phones to their field techs as a back-up phone in the event of a site or system failure.
Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
