I never upgraded my phone
and now we are 30 short days from being done with our contract with AT&T. I'm mulling over a switch to T-Mobile but from what I've heard on the tubes, reception and coverage is not a strong point. I'd like to know what your experiences have been and how any reception/coverage issues have affected your usage. I trust the opinions of my fellow Mefites much more than random people on the internet.
I realize that my specific location will have bearing on the reception quality that I experience, but I'd like to get a general idea of what T-Mobile is capable of. For example, I was a little put-off when I visited a local store that was on a major street but wasn't getting 3G reception. (If you're interested, we live in the far west suburbs of Chicago and I work at a certain university out among the corn fields. If we do switch, I'd be getting a Nexus One.)
If you don't mind, I'd love it if you could rate your T-Mobile experience from 0 (horrible reception/coverage) to 5 (super duper reception/coverage). Thanks!
