Most Def agree. I've used cingular/AT&T, tmobile, and nextell and the service just isn't as good.

I am looking to jump ship also. A lack of customer support, along with failed calls, sporadic signal, and phone issues have looking to go somewhere as soon as I can (probably next year or March 2010 as my current contract is up in May 2010).
I am up in between AT&T and Sprint as they are the cheapest next to TMobile for the phone, minutes, data and texting I want.
Hopefully I will be able to do something soon or the service gets better.
I agree about Tmo having all of the above. IMO sprint and US cellular has the best coverage. I never used att or verison so i cant comment on it.
phatman the phat stacker!
I would say go with verizon for the having the best coverage. With the go ahead from the FCC with the altell merger verizon is going to stand to be the largest carrier in the usa. Also having a blackberry you want to consider the data coverage. Verizon has 3g in a lot of places and with gaining altell they will have it in a lot more. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I'm on AT&T now in the midwest, they seem pretty good in the south, midwest, and east. They seem a bit weak in the southwest, west, and northwest. I mostly have full bats but have had situations when I drop calls. My old Verizon phone worked just about everywhere and didn't drop a call. Not up to speed on tmo, but from I hear it's good in most places. See which carrier is the best for your location. No sense getting the best price if you can't make calls.

If you want to do a comparison. Here is a chart that parallels Canadian Providers
Rogers - AT&T
Fido - T-Mobile
Bell Mobility - Verizon
Tellus - Sprint
I agree, CDMA is not a consideration. So you only really have to decide between AT&T and T-Mobile
From what I have read, AT&T is the one you want. Regardless of price.
The above is my opinion and only my opinion. I have not used any of the US Providers listed.
Why are so many people saying to stear clear of CDMA?
I had Tmobile for 7 years and just swtiched to ATT a few months ago. I was having horrible signal at home and family members homes and they just kept telling me it was my phone. Wrong... Also I think that their customer service has gone down hill. I love ATT. Never have had any problems and think they have great customer service.
That's just my 2 cents though
I would imagine becouse GSM is more of a global standerd. CDMA is just big in the US. On GSM you have the ability to unlock your phone and use it on another carrier. But with more world phones coming out and companies like Verizon moving to LTE networks before long it will not matter who your on. CDMA will make some sort of transition sooner or later.
