T-Mobile network sounds way better

TK-421Wireless

Many times using ATT I get garbled sounding conversations to the point that its useless, but with Tmobile the call clarity is great. What is the deal is it just that ATT is still just a train wreck with piss poor cs and network implementation? I'm in the Seattle area and Tmobile blows ATT out of the water!

that is great for you then i guess. seriously, even though i am an indirect for at&t, i do agree that tmo has better call quality and cs. if they had more coverage i would worry.

I know they have better call clarity, but why? What is the answer- is it simply that ATT has its head in the sand and is a disorganized mess????

No, I think it depends on what device you are using and the fact that t-mo only uses 1900 mhz and we use 1900 and 850 mhz and 3g. I used to sell t-mo for 2 years and now at&t for 2. I notice that most garbled calls are on lg and samsung phones.

I think the reason for this is that T-Mobile has a 100% GSM network while ATT has a GSM/TDMA and AMPS network.... I do believe -even though I have no proof whatsoever- that the network is somehow overloaded. I had T-Mobile more that 2 years ago and I never experience the hiccups I experience with ATT.
I guess we will have to wait for TDMA and AMPS to finally go away in other to have the same quality as TMobile....

Remember that Stan S. has always said that he was going to have "the most highly regarded wireless company in the world" by the end of 2007 and this clearly coincides with the shutting down of TDMA

Okay that sounds like a reasonable answer, im not hacking on ATT...I was just very curious why they haven't achieved the call clarity of little ol tmobile. Thanks

I can tell from experience not just with TMobile, but with other GSM carries outside the US. I hope it is not a network issue (bad network), but a "TDMA&S" issue...

t-mo is on 1900mhz. Higher frequencies do generally yeild better voice quality... However, the lower band in the US (850mhz) is capable of going further distances. at&t has much better coverage, it seems.

I've noticed that whenever I've been overseas on an 1800mhz network, the call quality has been a little better. It's pretty amazing calling from overseas and feeling like you're right down the block.

If you didn't try every phone in at&t's line-up, you need to say which phone you had and not make a statement about at&t's network in general. Thanks! =D

Also if you can say which phones you tried on T-Mobile that will be great too.

I'm happy T-mobile works for you but I find at&t to be quite fine here in NYC and when I had T- mobile it didn't work in my house to well at all but being fair that issue could've be fixed by now since I left them a while back . Making a generalization about a carrier really weakens your argument especially when there are plenty of people out there who had different experiences with that carrier it almost sounds like you have an ax to grind against at&t and if thats the case more power to ya , but if you really wanted an answer to your question you could have let us know about the equipment your using to which in my opinion makes a world of difference. ๐Ÿ˜‰
