Coverage in Arkansas & N. Calif?

Looking at the coverage map, I now see the area from Little Rock south to Texarkana has coverage albeit noted as roaming coverage. I am particularly interested in coverage in the Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village, Arkansas area. Also, I travel to the Bay Area of Northern California a great deal... specifically the San Jose and Fremont areas. I would like to know what people's experience is with T-Mobile coverage in these areas has been.

I am currently with SprintPCS and have been very satisfied with the coverage I have found as I have traveled around the country. HOWEVER, I have grown increasing frustrated with Sprint's attitude toward data usage where a phone handset is involved and their "luddite" stance toward Bluetooth. The custom...

Is Number portability within T-Mobile Allowed?

Can I do the following

  1. purchase a new T-Mobile line.
  2. Move my current number to my new line
  3. Cancel my current line

Or am I trying to be too smart for my own good?

This way one can buy a new phone at new customer rates AND keep their number!

Why can't Tmobile prepaid costumer access T-zones

I bought a tmobile prepaid phone. I thought that prepaid costumers could use tzone. I have a Tmobile post paid account also. I like the ringtones and other thing tmobile offer on tzone. But when I bought a prepaid phone, I was unable to access Tzones. Customer Service told me it was only available to postpaid customers. To me thats stupid. Basically I just wanted to download ringtones, games, and graphics. Other prepaid companies allow their customers to download ringtones and etc. Why don't tmobile offer that to its costumers. Tmobile do have a bad reputation of disdaining or treating its prepaid customers like their aren't important. When you even go to their website to find info about their prepaid plans -- It's like they don't even care....

How Can I Get A Phone

OK now that I have decided to stay with T-Mobile I want a new phone. I upgraded my service plan yet had only been a customer 2 months and didn't qualify for a free phone or a discount on one.

I dson't understand why ALL of the celluar companies won't sell their phones at a reasonable discount. I don't mind paying 150. for a new Nokia 6610 but I do mind paying the 230. list price they want.

How can I purchase a phone at a reasonable price without waiting for my 12 months (which just began again because of the upgrade) to be completed? There must be a way to buy a phone at a reasonable price, no... yes?
