Deutsche Telekom sure has an odd way to publicly embrace its problem stepchild.

Well, results of 2014 are in. 55 million customers, making money by balancing profit and growth.

If they can finish rolling out LTE, we will seriously consider moving from AT&T next year.

My experience in major cities is that T-Mobile coverage has gotten a lot better recently.

TMobile is probably fine in major cities and if you don't stray too far from a major interstate. for me it means it's unusable and i'm only on the south side of atlanta. co-worker on Tmobile has no coverage when she's at work. or on the roads to her dad's house nearby.

I've been using T-Mo since September. I live on Long Island, work in NYC, and have traveled for business to Dallas, Atlanta, KC, Indy, Boston and Chicago in the last couple of months.

Is it perfect? No. Does it work? Generally, yes.

Overall, I've been very pleased, and my bill for 5 lines is ~$140/month...

True, WiFi calling has been available off and on since 2007. Nice feature.

We've been on Verizon (never again!), ATT (have two phones still on ATT, no contract), Straight Talk, and TMobile since September with Ethyl's iPhone 5. So far, I think I'm liking TMobile the best. TMo did make ATT better for sure by competition, but I'm thinking we will soon go all TMobile. I still don't get ATT reception in my house! I travel all over southeast, and have rarely not had a signal for phone at least, even if no LTE service. Plus, when we travel to Asia, can use TMobile easier, cheaper.

I've used TMobile postpaid, prepaid, or an MVNO since 2002. Happy enough to keep using them now. I'm always reevaluating, so if a better deal appears, I'd switch.
