    Just make sure your phone subsidy doesn't go away....
    If you stay under contract, you keep the phone subsidy.... For now...

    Again, you said "ALL carriers responded". Does not one carrier make that claim as wrong as two or three? If you wanted to say TMo has had a big impact on Sprint, and to lesser extent AT&T, then your contention would have been much more accurate.

    And there's no proof VZW responding to an AT&T move is an indirect response to TMo. AT&T also does plenty of their own moves to compete with VZW that have nothing to do with TMo. Data prices (or at least bandwidth) are and were going to come down, just as it did with cell minutes, regardless of what TMo was doing.

    VZW has never targeted the value/bargain hunter, so TMo going after the bottom feeders has very little, if any, influence on VZW.

    All I know is that if T-Mobile had really good coverage I would be long gone. Just their upgrade policies alone are worth the change.

    Didn't verizon launch a campaign to get their customers back who went to Tmobile? They are very much paying attention to them.

    They also raised their Gigabytes per dollar in defense of Tmobile as well.

    Tmo might only be the third largest now, but AT&T and Verizon can't rest on their laurels. Tmobile is getting stronger at their expense everyday.

    I wouldn't call T-Mo customers bottom feeders.....they're simply customers looking to save a buck and get the most for their money....I can appreciate that. John certainly tries to capitalize on this market but really, it's more laughable than anything because all he ever does take cheap shots at AT&T & Verizon every chance he gets. But hey, if that's all you have to work with, more power to ya.
    Those of us who are happy with Verizon certainly don't think T-Mo has a leg to stand on in terms of making any type of significant impact on Verizon as a whole, whether it's coverage or customer service.

    I agree. I am willing to bet money that everyone on Verizon would jump ship to Tmobile if Tmobile had the same network coverage.

    I definitely wouldn't call tmobile customers bottom feeders :(. For any customer that has good tmobile coverage, it's literally the obvious choice.

    It works great for me. I didn't come over from Verizon though. I came over from AT&T. They had awesome coverage and great customer service, but it came down to money. Tmobile works just as well, but saves me over $100 a month.

    I guess I'm lucky T-mobile has good coverage where I live and travel. Switched from Verizon two years ago and it's been amazing ever since. :p

    TMO has good service in town but in the country, not so much. I'm a trail runner and I need connectivity for 911, just in case.

    Verizon is the only real option in the northwest part of the country. Nobody else even comes close.

    I got tired of Verizon's ways. Got tired of their locked down phones. I had them for over 15 years and switched over to T-Mobile last year and have been really happy with the coverage and customer service.

    I guess it helps that I'm in the Bay Area / Silicon Valley. And I use WiFi calling/texting whenever necessary.
