    Does anyone in these forums use T-Mo within the Sarasota, Fl. area( Venice, Nokomis, etc.)? How does it work for you. I want to change from VZW to T-Mo, as i want to go back to GSM, and get away from CDMA. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.:confused:

    I'm not in your area but hopefully someone can chime in ...you might one to consider a prepaid on their network for a few weeks ...then you can really compare

    Good advice. When my VZW contract is up, i can try MetroPCS, which uses the T-Mo network, just to test it out. I will definitely need wifi calling, and unlimited roaming. A trip from Fl. to my family in B'klyn could be expensive with T-Mo. Thanks.

    Or if you can afford it get a phone now before VZW expires and carry both phones to really compare !

    Went to the magenta side on the 9th of April. Totally bought out my phone and my wife's. She's got the iPhone 7 Plus, and i've got the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Great phones, service, customer service, and a great price. Tmo One is unlimited everything for $100.00 including taxes. We couldn't be happier.:p

    Is that price for both you and your wife? That's great..I wish I could switch, but up on the hill that I live on, only Verizon works reliably for phone service...I keep on checking, but unfortunately not yet

    If not for the hole in coverage centered where I work I'd be back on T-Mobile myself. I left Verizon about 4 years ago because I got tired of craptacular reception all over central Virginia , saved a boat load of money each month with T-Mobile but needed better coverage during travels than either provided and switched to AT&T. I pay $45a month for unlimited text/calls and 2GB data with rollover. T-Mobile has filled all the coverage holes I ran into except where I work.

    No holes around here but there are tons where I travel. I could live without reception but why when it's the same price as what I'm getting now?.

    Connecticut has lots of hills and only Verizon gets everywhere. But Verizon still charges more than anyone the last time I checked prices. My husband just paid his phone off, so I guess once he's ready to get a new one, we'll check the prices again and maybe by then T-Mobile will fill in the holes. Now that I'm retired, I sure would like to save a few bucks.
