T-mobile is cheaper I guess, but AT&T has the best coverage of any carrier in my area. If you drop you phone a lot like me though, you may have to buy a new phone or get a new 2-year contract every year and a half or so.

Seeing as how I've had first-hand experence with both companies I would have to say T-mobile has the better service, coverage etc. While At&T claims to have all that, their prices are real high, and they end up ripping off your money. I hated every time I needed a new phone, I would have to up my rate plan. Which ment a higher bill every month over all. I would often make phones last as long as possible so I didn't have to deal with that very thing. I also paid for unlimited texting as well, but there was a problem. I kept getting charged with the texts on a so-called unlimited plan. With T-mobile I get what I pay for. I feel like I can talk to them, and I don't have to play 20 questions every time I need to make a change. If I need a new phone, I can upgrade one month after I get a phone. If I want, though the longer I wait the lower the price I have to pay. I just have to agree to re-up my contract for another two years. Which is reasonable. I don't have to change anything. I pay aproxmently 104, plus taxes and fees which are about ten bucks, a month for two lines, unlimited talk anytime day or night. unlimited texting on my line, and I don't think I could ask for anything better then that.

Hi, AT&T ! I would just like to say I had singular and At&t took over. I Thought It was going to change, but, it didn't. I happen to love my at&t. Anytime I have an issue, their customer service is great! always resolved. There are better phone plans meaning cheaper, But, with at&t I know I am a valued customer and I feel safe and secured with my phone service, at all times. I've had them all, thats how I ended up with cingular but, none better than at&t. Any technical problems? fixed right aawy, lose your phone re-placed in a day 2 tops, first thing in the morning by fed-ex. But, thats my experience with them, Been with them for 5 yrs..

That really depends on where you're gonna use the phone. Not every service providers are gonna be the same in every corner of the world. I know your question is about AT&T & T-Mobile but just to give you an idea, a lot of people & 3rd party surveys are talking about how great of coverage that verizon has. My co-worker has to walk all over the place where we walk just to get a marginal signal where I have t-mobile & I have full 3g signal with my blackberry. Two blocks down the road, inside my friend's house, friend of mine can't get any type of service with his AT&T I-Phone until he drives about 1/4 of mile out of his house when I get full 3g service with my t-mobile blackberry inside his house. But then in all fairness, one restaurant that me & my friends hang out once a month, I can't get any signal when another friend of mine gets full signal with his 3 year old Nextel phone. All this is within 5 mile radius. I travel a lot for my work & I've used 5 different services, AT&T, Nextel & Sprint - before & after their merge, verizon, & T-Mobile. All the places I've been to, I haven't noticed too much of a difference from one service provider to another. I'll stick to my t-mobile. Just for the record, I travel to & from NY, bottom half of NJ, both Virginias, & both Carolinas. With T-Mobile, I had coverage with 95% of those places. It's not like I only go around in few blocks of my house.

I don't have any experience with AT&T, as I have never used it, but I have been with T-mobile, for several years, and I had all kinds of problems keeping a connection, as I would get dropped calls, and I just got so frustrated, so I just decided in 2008, to change my service to Verizon, and I don't get dropped calls with them at all. Now, they are expensive at the outset, and I do have to renew my contract every time I upgrade, but they are a good company, and I think for now, I will just stay with them. Now if I can find one that is better than they are, then I might consider switching, but for now, my kids are on Verizon, and by talking to them, it won't use up our minutes. Take care and happy mylotting.
