    Haven't looked at the numbers, but I have a feeling TMobile is a very very distant 3rd in the profit race.

    Yes, but this is a newer one (first one being with Verizon).

    I chuckled at the pun that is brought up in this commercial. However, lets be serious, nobody uses T-Mobile and it is definitely not better than the iPhone on AT&T or Verizon.

    They're like the North Korea of phone service. No one likes them and they always got something to say.

    If Tmobile had better service in my area and the iPhone with 3G or better, It would be a no brainer. When the gave me a quote, it was half of Verizon. Then when I told them that, they offered a additional $5 off a month for a year.

    T-Mobile really doesn't save you any money. Their plans are just about as much as AT&T but with lesser coverage. However, when I dealt with T-Mobile customer service, they are certainly better than what you would get from AT&T or especially Verizon!

    T-Mobile, calls don't come in, even with service.
    AT&T, Calls come in, but then drop, GSM
    Verizon, Horrid customer service that doesn't help you at all. Also CDMA
    Sprint, Worse customer service than Verizon!

    Theres always lowend carriers like Cricket, which has no smartphones worthwhile.

    Take your pick! I am with AT&T, and I am just going to stay with them.

    Honestly, I think the T-Mobile ads are actually pretty clever.

    I think that if I were choosing cellphone companies, didn't know much about them, and wasn't dead set on an iPhone, they would make a persuasive argument. The commercials would have me at least considering them (and that's the point of the commercial, to get you aware of them and thinking of them when you want the product they are selling).

    Funny how you guys are all upset about them mocking Verizon but on an Apple forum no one is noticing they are also mocking Apple as well (Hi, I'm a PC! And I'm a Mac!) ;).

    What I also notice though is despite the parady of Apple's ads, they only aim their mocking at the networks (Making fun of iPhone for network flaws, not cause of its flaws).

    Yup been there done that, if u really compares rate plans, tmobile is not that much cheaper, 5-10 bucks give or take a month and their coverage is garbage, those ppl who are saying they got the beat rate must have been on a grandfather plans, last time I looked unlimited Internet was 30 bucks just like verizon and AT&T. But to each their own, if tmobile works for u and if u can deal w them and save money at the same time, more power to ya.

    T mobile is even worse than AT&T. My company blackberry is t mobile (no choice but at least I don't pay for it) and its terrible. AT&T is amazing in comparison.

    T-Mobile is garbage unless you live in a big city and don't ever plan on leaving it.

    I haven't watched the link, but usually this is called "advertising," not "basing."
