Blackberry devices were designed with traveling business men in mind. Cant travel nationwide with a carrier like TM and be confident in your coverage. I know because I had it.
    One thing I learned-everyones experience is different. Some people prefer Target and Some prefer Wal-mart. They both are the same-giant retailers taking every bit of money we earn. It falls under personal preference.I had great service traveling from texas to michagian. Texas to california. Texas to florida. Texas to maine. Nothing but great coverage. I'm a 10y customer. I have seen them transfer from voicestream to tmobile and they have grown! I've never seen second rate anything. Once again-everyone has a preference. You can find people who side for each side and it will probably come out to an egual amount. Now, the area your in probably isn't a tmo mareket but comparing your coverage and assuming that it's nation wide isn't fair nor is assuming that the service you once had is the same
    Second Rate - I don't remember them advertising that one. If that was the case competitors would have a field day with comercials - haven't seen that yet

    They will not be coherent with each other, but as long as the phone supports those frequencies both companies use then you should no issues using the 3G networks.

    I wasn't trying to provoke a debate regarding which carrier is better or worse (AT&T vs. Tmo). I understand that all carriers have their good and bad points. Also it's a matter of preference for some. I was only trying to point out that a carrier such as AT&T is overated when it comes to service and product exclusivity. TMO may seem like a second rate carrier to some but AT&T isn't providing first rate service for a first rate price. Thank God for competition. Can AT&T customers imagine how much more money they would be paying without a second rate carrier such as TMO? I just want the BB Bold to come to TMO so I can enjoy it like everyone else.

    Well if ATT didn't always deliver their products and services across the country better than T-mobile than maybe T-Mobile would get a shot. But it is what it is.

    Just saw ATT tech upgrade the tower by my house to HSUPA

    I get 3G speeds now. Yay!!

    The difference, that is frequently overlooked, between T-Mobile & AT&T is that AT&T is an American Company. T-Mobile is not. Also T-Mobile has been operating in the US for less than 10yrs. Compare that to AT&T's history of many decades in the US.

    Here is an excerpt:

    Founded in December 1999 as a company owned by Deutsche Telecom. Since then T-Mobile became one of the leading companies in mobile communications. It was among the first to operate the GSM (Global Systems for Mobile Communications) which permitted the company to go to the next level of its development. T-Mobile and its affiliates used such technologies like GPRS, UMTS and W-LAN which were focused on the future usage. T-Mobile is concentrating its efforts on the more productive markets in Europe and the United States. The twelve T-Mobile markets serve more than 106 million users. In order to allow its customers to communicate freely while traveling abroad, the company affiliates with Free Move, a company formed of four Europe’s main phone companies – Orange, TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile), Telia Sonera and T-Mobile.

    Source:
    http://www.mobile-t-mobile.com/mobile-network/t-mobile.html
    So one can now see that the US is only "One" of T-Mobiles markets. Thus we do not get full allocation of their resources. While not a bad thing, it does however limit the companies ability to react to changing market dynamics.

    Having this information & knowing it's impact & limitations is the reason I chose them as my secondary carrier, while I use AT&T as my Primary carrier & always will.
