    So I'm debating on weather or not to switch to T-Mobile. Everything I'm seeing is pretty decent. I do have a couple of questions (and life is too crazy right now to go to the store to ask, besides i like your honest opinions).
    1. On there text messaging they're making it sound like you can only send it to other T-Mobile people, it was all in how it was worded. Does anyone know about this?
    2. I'm thinking about also getting the t-zones pro so I can get my work e-mail and ineternet e-mail. Does the internet usage use my anytime minutes or is that totally seperate.

    I'm just wondering the overall opinion of it.

    They have the least amount of coverage of all the US providers and their coverage map hasnt increase at all since i worked for them in 2000.

    1. no, you can send text messages to any carrier as long as they can receive them
    2. internet does not use voice minutes. it runs off a seperate data plan

    Well, the coverage is not a major issue with me. I spend the majority of my time in chicago or its suburbs. I do go to Rockford occasionally, and then if i travel and i incur any expenses from roaming or minute overages, my company reimburses me. Just from what i've been looking at, i get a better selection on phones (my biggest complaint about Verizon) and more stuff for my money.

    The other thing i'm liking about it, Our sales force had trouble getting signals inside our building, they've switched over to tmobile and have had full signal strenght in the building.
