T-Mobile vs. Verizon

*I've moved, and my posts have come with me! Check out my new blog at www.jeffrey-davis.net/blog/*

[UPDATE: Hey you people who landed here from Googling "T-Mobile vs. Verizon" or something like it, check out my post regarding my extreme satisfaction with T-Mobile after being a customer for two weeks. I hope it helps.]

Ok, I posted on my wireless phone service provider dilemma about two months ago, but the battle continues still. I've narrowed it down to T-Mobile and Verizon. I would really love some feeback from current or recent T-Mobile and Verizon customers. If you've recently been with one or the other, but aren't anymore, then why did you switch?

I've done extensive reviewing of all the wireless big boys in the area and, again, have narrowed it down to these two carriers in considering coverage, consumer reviews, rate plans, financial value, and phone value. J.D. Power Consumer Reviews put T-Mobile as the carrier of choice in the southeast region of the country. ConsumerSearch.com says that T-Mobile and Verizon come in "neck and neck". However, they go on to say that T-Mobile's phones are compatible for international use, should the need ever arise, and Verizon's are currently not.

So there's the info. Please let me know what yall think.

UPDATE: Well, thanks to a trip to the T-Mobile store in Opry Mills Mall and the feedback from Brittney and the Nashville blogosphere, the wife and I will be T-Mobile's newest customers soon. We found out in the store this afternoon that T-Mobile rolled out some new features earlier today that sealed the deal. They introduced plans with "my Faves" where you can choose any five numbers to call for free, all the time. This is a feature offered by Alltel Wireless (who advertises, but doesn't provide service here in Nashville) that I've wished were made available by a carrier here--wish granted. You can even change one or all of your "Faves" every month, sweet!.

I am not sure to whom I am leaving this post as the questions seems to be almost 2 years old. I too have been debating on switching from Verizon to T-Mobile. It is now almost March of 2008 and I am still with Verizon. They cost bit more minute wise than T-Mobile, but I travel a lot in weird areas on my motorcycle or in my motor home, so for now Verizon is the only way to go. I see that T-Mobile is updating their service and coverage area, but for now, I know that Verizon pretty much works across country. NO cell will work perfectly in all areas, so you have to pick what you need. If you aren't moving around and have good coverage, pick the lowest price with the best customer service. Thanks, Bob.

I'm too am trying to choose between Verizon and T-Mobile. I'm currently a Verizon user and I wish I couls say I thinking of switching due to service but really its because of equipment. I use a Blackberry and T-Mobile offers a wider selection than Verizon. Still Verizon has top-notch customer service and can't complain on their coverage but beware. Word is the feds are trying to force Verizon to shut down their analog towers. Considering they haven't made as much inroads with their High band and 3G network expansion as has T-Mobile, you may want to go the T-Mobile route to stay on the safe side.
