I'm not sure I understand the question completely, but I am very happy with my AT&T service, so it has no affect on me whatsoever

Edit: Ah, now there is a poll, so I understand better what you are wanting to know

An iPhone in Tmobile supporting their AWS bands is what I've been waiting for years for. I have a 5 with Verizon considering paying the ETF and leaving. I miss simultaneous talk and data too. Tmobile has that.

That was my next research... Assuming they're both GSM, tmobile will allow talk n text like the AT&T ip5 right? Did they confirm this?

I'm a happy camper with AT&T. I don't have any problems with them like many people do.

I bought an unlocked iPhone 5 to use on t-mobile's network a few months ago so I am going to be hating life every time I venture out of the 3G coverage areas here in so. Cal. But hey, there is always free wifi to jump on at work and home.

Staying with AT&T never switched never will.

Going to stay with Verizon, been a long time customer which they give out some free perks.

Also T-Mobiles...LTE needs a lot of work.

As much as I like the new plans, I looked up coverage where I live. I'm surrounded by 2G with spots of 3G. That means all the fancy-pants crap is worthless to me most of the time. I also wouldn't have any savings for another two years. By then maybe this will have forced Verizon to change its pricing.

As with always, I've got to stick with Verizon for the network quality. But there's no reason the other carriers shouldn't switch to this instead of pocketing the extra money after I complete my two years.

I know people who took unlocked iPhones and switched to T-Mobile. They're happy for the most part, but some aren't happy that the refarm is taking so long in some places. The fact that T-Mobile is coming out with an iPhone for their own network is terrific. I might switch myself here.

That's more on apple's part though since all of their other lte devices can do that simultaneously. and some lte devices can even do it on 3g.

I'm on Tmobile, and I can tell you, expect very poor service when you're even remotely inside a building.

Brace yourselves.

I'm attracted with the plan pricing and I've had tmobile before and coverage where I live is spot on. The reason why I transferred to AT&T was because of the iPhone and since tmobile is carrying it now I'm seriously considering. Unlimited data is attractive too.

But the OP didn't put in any option to stay with at&t. Like you, I am happy with at&t's service. So I voted, I love turtles.

I love my AT&T service, it has been solid since I have been on their service with the iPhone 3G, T-Mobile just doesn't have the range of service I need for traveling all over.

I would switch to T-Mobile before ever going back to Verizon though, I can not live without my ability to use Data/Voice at the same time, it works perfectly for my job so I can use WiFi hotspot and be on a conference call at the same time.

I have been on TMO for the last seven years and was going to look at switching to get the iPhone. Now I will stay. Great speeds and no in building issues.
