Thank you TMO, your waffling got me on a REAL network!

10 years of loyalty to T-Mobile. After I heard about the merger earlier this year I left and tried out Straight Talk, Boost & Simple Mobile. Straight Talk's Nokia E5 (ATT) was OK & service with AT&T was much better than T-Mobile (not saying much) specifically the 3G data coverage. Alas though, being used to Android I didn't stay with ST and switched to Boost. I found Sprint's 3G network to be abysmally slow and very non-existent around here in New Mexico so I though maybe Simple Mobile (usings TMO's towers) might be a deal for $40 for unlimited everything and Android. WRONG! 119kbps download speeds for their "3G" service! PATHETIC. Finally, I said "forget it" I'm going to pay up for a REAL carrier and took over 2 Verizon Accounts that still had unlimited data in November & am now enjoying a fantastic phone in the LG Revolution & 4G LTE speeds between 8-30MB here in Albuquerque & 3G service everywhere else. I literally just took a trip from ABQ to Denver, over to San Franscisco & down to Los Angeles & with Verizon I had service EVERYWHERE. A lot of 4G areas and what wasn't 4G was at least 3G. I ADORE VERIZON, worth every penny!
