Does their cellular/data service still suck or no?
There clearly isn't some sort of a generic answer to something like that. When it comes to something like that much of it really depends on where you generally use the service, which is certainly different for different people at different times.
After 20 years with Sprint, I switched to T-Moble because of their 65+, 2 phones for $60 a month plan. I’ve not regretted it in the Houston area. I’m still waiting for them to offer their 2 iPhones for the price of 1 for existing subscribers.
Service depends on where you live or work. Check cells towers nearby. Ads are a problem though from T-Mobile

It varies by location but I have pretty good experience with them in terms of service and customer support. T-Mobile does have 30-days risk free trial so I would suggest to give it a try before actually switching over.
I've had it just over a year and it's been awesome. Network isn't (in most, but not all) cases as good as ATT, but great customer service and 3 lines unlimited for $80/month after I ran the two lines for 100$ promo and then somehow stumbled upon another promo at the same time that let me port in a third number and get 20% off my bill at the same time! Definitely keep an eye out for their promotions.
I also had an iPhone 7 not working with VoIP and they gave me a new one with very few questions asked almost a year later. Kind of blew my mind a little. Reminds me of my experiences with apple in the early to mid 2000's.
T-Mobile service is very good in most mid-sized cities or larger. In more rural areas, they seem to still get decent phone coverage by roaming on other networks. The one thing to look into is "Domestic Data Roaming." You have a hard limit of (i think) 200mb of roaming data within the US (international data, however, is unlimited). The minute you exceed the limit you are cut off from any and all data with no warning.
I can't get it at my house, only wi fi calling so I have to go with $$$ Verizon
Hopefully good things to come
I really love T-Mobiles service in my area. I started with T-Mobile back when they first announced support for the iPhone 3GS and have been with them ever since.
T-Mobile and Sprint have been the only two carriers to be able to get me reliable service while I am home. Verizon and AT&T have not been able to do that in all these years of iPhones.
I did port out 1 of my 3 T-Mobile lines to AT&T last month just to have a line open on their network in case I don't like what happens with T-Mobile. Even though I don't get AT&T service good enough to use at home, it's excellent everywhere else with a few holes just like any carrier will have. I have to use WiFi calling on AT&T while at home but even that fails half the time due to weak signals.
The better question is how is the cell service in a specific area ?
All carriers have areas where they don't work as well.
I haven't had T-Mobile for 1 1/2 years (i.e. not recent) but when I did, I only got good coverage towards the southern portions of NH. I ended up switching to AT&T since they had much better coverage where I use my phone.
I keep reading that AT&T and Verizon phone call quality is much better than T-Mobile.
You mean voice quality? I’ve had T-Mobile and voices sound good to me or are you speaking of phone reception? I’ve got one bar rapt my noise, but no issues with callsmthat I know of, and I had the same when I was with Sprint.
What are you on now please?
T- Mobile. I just bought two iPhone XRs, and will be activating them today. Will try to remember to post how the voice quality sounds.
Btw, setting up these new phones were incredibly easy. Set your old phone next to the new one, and initial settings are transferred, then via WiFi, you can transfer all data via cloud backup, if I am understanding what just happened correctly. No more fingerprint ID, now it’s facial recognition to unlock the phone.
My concern is when I’m kidnapped and the bad guys will just hold the phone up to my face to steal all of my secrets!
Voice quality sounds good to me on the new iPhone.
I am on T-Mobile in NYC. I have had no problems at all, not an issue in buildings either. Their customer service and plans are excellent for me.
Still not sure if I am keeping T-Mobile and staying with AT&T or not.
it so totally really depends where you live or work etc. My house has really bad signal strength but walk a block north and all is good.
The cell phone provider's maps are too low resolution.
good or bad i would not rush to find a new mobile provider as 5G is coming to an urban area where you live work, if 5g is not already there. This will change your local signal strength values as all the providers update their infrastructure. If you are in a less populated area a 2G flip phone may your best tool
T-Mobile LTE tops list of US carriers for fastest data speeds
I noticed this.
It seems like one block speed and coverage is great the next not so much.
Where AT&T it is more stable from block to block.
