Why are you yelling?

Honestly pretty much all services work well nowadays. I use to have tmobile and it was awful but it was also 7 years ago.
I use Verizon and love the service but hate the limited phone selection and how locked down all devices are on Verizon

I have used T-Mobile for 2+ years now and the service/signal has degraded significantly - which is starting to drive me mad. Hard to beat their pricing and plans though and they did tell me they are working as fast as they can on upgrading their network. We use 2 phones in every car - and my other phone is Verizon, which I dont reckon is that much better. I will tell you that T-Mobile has some very good coverage at the ski resorts (better than AT&T and Verizon)

If you loose service while doing a ride it does nothing . I took a ride a month or so ago deep in to evergreen , dirt roads etc... I lost service the last 3 miles , so I had to drop the customer off then drive back and end the ride once I had service . I explained it to the passenger and he didn't care about the extra $5 or so bucks

Now if you loose service while waiting for pings you're not gonna get any pings , it can also be a pain when you loose service while trying to call a passenger etc... I know in Denver Tmobile really struggles during any large event , Verizon data slows down to a crawl but the voice still works perfectly during those time.

I do agree that I sometimes think Tmobile actually has better mountain coverage then Verizon but Verizon is much better in the city . We go to a cabin in the mountains regularly and my Verizon really doesn't work there , a friend of ours with Tmobile can at least get some service

I think it also matters a lot on what type of phone you have

I've noticed that Motorola phones tend to work the best signal wise and Apple tend to be some of the worst , also I haven't had great luck with Samsung as far as signal strength .

I currently use two phones a Nexus 6 on and an Iphone 6 both on Verizon . The nexus is a motorola phone and blows away the Iphone in signal strength as well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 that I recently gave to my wife when she broke her S6 , and the old Iphone 6 came out of the dresser drawer to replace it

I have TMobile and had no issues. I got their 6 gig plan and if you go over, they just slow down your internet speed. They don't charge. I did go over a few times but that's because I didn't have WIFI at home. So I was constantly using data between work and home. I will say. I had Verizon and where I live, you do NOT get service (Univ and Hampden area) More so back in the gated communities and the apartment communities to the west of King Soopers. Out on the main streets service was better. I have talked to several people who said the same thing. They had to switch carriers when they moved to this area, as well as my new roommate. Also, another dead area for Verizon, was From I25 to 6th and from Lincoln to Downing. Just something to consider
