I'm not trying to fight at all. I think that may be a source of confusion

T-Mobile. We just switched from AT&T a few weeks ago because our bottoms were hurting from all the gouging. We got a stupidly good deal and decided to go for it. Obviously, being in a well populated area close to a major US city, our coverage is fine, but I realise that elsewhere one of the 'big two' is going to be more of a necessity. It works for us though
We stick with T-Mobile because we have international service that costs next to nothing compared to some others. Tried AT&T, but they screwed up so bad, particularly on the international service, they let us cancel our contract and waived the $350.00 cancellation fee! They don't "drop" calls either.

We have our international service through our home phone - but now that my ma has discovered Skype we'll probably be forced to have to stare at her bake on the computer now (actually, my daughter grabbed my wife's DS and was looking for 'grandma on the pooter' yesterday )

I really was just making conversation with PA earlier and didn't want to actually discuss phones , but AT&T were just too expensive. We decided to go with the best deal we could find and I decided to get a cool phone to spoil myself. Not that interesting, really.
