okay, i know this has been asked before, but i don't really feel like searching through months of entries. it's not a hard question to answer, anyway. i was just wondering how t-mobile works throughout the u-district. i have cingular right now & i'm completely satisfied with it, but i have to upgrade to a more expensive plan. t-mobile offers more minutes for that same plan, so it'd make sense to switch IF it's decent... and that's where you fine people come in.

so tell me, have you had good experiences with t-mobile? or is it absolutely horrible? thanks in advance.
