Looks like T-mobile is starting to feel the sting of the big boys.

Over what period? And don't they still have less than a quarter of the customers that AT&T and Verizon have combined? Oh yeah they are surely making waves. Its sad that Verizon and AT&T are losing customers to them...oh wait they are still adding more customers every quarter. oops.

.....they can keep it. T-Mobile is a joke with their LTE and 4G coverage. If I had a dollar every time one of my friends left a major city or town and their phone right away went to 2G or EDGE I could buy T-Mobile.

For those of us who use modern air transportation and go overseas a lot, T-Mobile works perfectly.

You better hope the cows are paying those car-payment verizon bills, because i sure will not be.

I use ~30GB of data on T-Mobile every month no problem, and have a $20 5GB hotspot to use on my Mac and never have any issues using it.

Q1 2014, T-Mobile adds 2.4 million. Verizon adds 539K but loses 95K handsets...oops. AT&T adds 625K. Sprint loses 220K.

Q2 2014 T-Mobile adds 1.5 million. Verizon adds 1.4 million of which 1.15 million are lower profit tablets. AT&T adds 700K Sprint loses 542K.

Put down the pipe. AT&T and Verizon are certainly NOT adding more customers than T-Mobile.

Damn, Sprint was doing the free galaxy tab 3 offer and that still lost them 542K in subs. Laughing

My carrier's still better than yours. TMO doesn't have towers in Podunk, Nowheresville, and that's worth the extra moolah I pay - to roam there, that is. ;)

These clowns dismissing Sprint and T-Mobile irk me. The typical consumer, even someone like me who travels extensively between major cities doesn't need to spend the extra cash on the big 2. Rates would drop like a rock if more people voted with their feet and didn't sign contracts. Rates are only so high because we as consumers allow it.

I luckily have a discount with AT&T and pay around $75 a month so it's about $30 less than what they were wanting to charge me for a mobile shared plan. T-Mobile was about the same after my discount with them even though it's only 10% compared to 23% I get with AT&T. Just wish T-Mobiles reception was stronger and had better penetration or I'd be all over it.

I've got a total of 4 lines and I'm thrilled to have T-Mobile. When the plan went from 1GB to 2.5GB per line, all I had to do was make a phone call. Now my line doesn't have the $10 bolt on for added data.

Sounds like the AT&T plan works out alright for you. Hopefully the 700 mhz spectrum T-Mobile acquired will change the coverage enough for you to jump ship.

Yeah I was happy with T-Mobile until I got into a building. If it gets resolved and they manage to help with the building penetration, I'm all in and would love to do it because their data speeds were damn impressive, especially fully unlimited. T-Mobile is the only carry I see actually making changes that we benefit from.

I wouldn't count Sprint out just yet. I'm gonna stick with them at least until my contract is up. Then we'll see.
