    So I have a really good hookup with T-mobile. I can basically get any phone that they offer. So if you had this option what would you get? Only t-mobile phones, and I dont think im gonna go with a blackberry/pda phone...

    hell no.

    I used to live in socal, and verizon coverage was CRAP compared to AT&T/Cingular.

    Now I live in Southern Oregon and verizon coverage is STILL crap. AT&T/Cingular has uber-good coverage, tho...

    So if I had to pick the best coverage, I'd have to say the New Cingular :)

    Whoa, I didn't even notice the 5%....Actually its more like 35-40% of the world uses CDMA and/or a variation of it. Man, someone needs to get their figures straight haha. Like I said, verizon has the most solid coverage in the U.S. Cingular on the other hand has the larget footprint even before merging with at&t

    i currently have cingular and it sucks. I will be on the phone and it will just lose all service and im sitting in my rooom. or if i try calling it wont ring but says it is sending the call and it just sits there till i hang up. Why get verizon when my brother in law works for tmobile and can hook it up with a free new badass phone and a great plan?

    no actually im not high

    if you think paying lots of money for a phone and service is better than getting a good one for free and paying hardly nothing for service, then you sir are high....


    back on topic...im trying to find a phone the service is already chosen, which tmobile phones do you guys have do you like it? im seriously leaning towards the v600

    the v600 is crap, theres a reason Cingular discontinued it after only a few months on the market

    Cingular had a contractual disagreement with Motorola. If you really think something wrong was with it, let me know exactly what it was. I even asked all the Cingular reps and they said nothing made the phone malfunction. If the phone was so bad then At&t (at the time) nor T-Mobile would carry it now.

    As for T-Mobile's service....I can only speak for Texas/Oklahoma/Colorado/Kansas/Louisiana/New Mexico coverage and its been fine in the cities and majority of the highways.
