    We made the jump from VZ to T-Mo. I didn't have any issues with Verizon except for their price. We have two lines of unlimited data for the same price as the small plan thanks to their military discount. We both ended up getting a Thin Q. So far I like it but now comes the task of setting the phone up. I will miss Moto's voice actions but that's life.

    Thanks, they are nice looking. Really shiny but also MAJOR fingerprint magnets. I'm actually thinking about a clear case. They look they good.

    Congrats on making the switch. Unless you live in the sticks or reliability is crucial for business I don't see how Verizon is feasible. Corporate discounts help bring it within manageable but then Verizon slaps on a different fee every month it seems to where the costs are out of control. Especially now when all the other carriers have caught up to Verizon with LTE coverage.

    With all that I just said att is trying to see if they can outdo Verizon at being the most hated carrier.

    I ordered a clear Ringke Fusion case for both my phone (gun metal gray) and my wife's (rose). It looks like a nice one. Good balance between protection and thickness. I didn't want a real bulky case.

    Also at first I was disappointed because I didn't have Moto voice anymore when I drove but Android Auto does just about the same thing as long as I have data on. Now that I have unlimited data, I will. It's a really nice app.

    One thing that caught me off guard is just how bad signal building penetration is with GSM phones. I could be anywhere in Wal-Mart with my Droid and make a call or text without a problem. Today I lost the signal 10' past the front door.

    That could be T-Mobile. I was hoping it would be different in your area so I did not say anything about it.

    Yeah that could be both T-Mobile. With att I do fine in buildings. In fact pretty close to the same as when I was in Verizon. Now it could have been because Verizon was throttling people early in their LTE life as I switched to att at the time I bought the note 2. But unless things changed with Verizon since then my signal has been close to the same. Where it differs is when I get deep into the rural areas. That's where Verizon outperforms the rest. But I'm in a deep rural area like hardly ever.

    I guess it's something that I'll have to live with. Wal-Mart is only a mile down the road and my signal at home is really good. Better than VZ. My 4g speeds are much faster than my Wi-Fi. At work I'm good to. Overall other than Wal-Mart the service is great. I'm happy with the move.
