In Stanford, California for a conference and wifi tether with T-Mobile 4G works amazing!!!
Ok, I live in Suburban Chicago. I connect via a T-Mobile G2. I get HSPA+ most of the time. if not that then it reverts to EDGE. 95-99% reliable outside. about 75% reliability indoors. I have an unlimited data plan with 400 sms/mms messages. 600 minutes Family Plan for voice.
I go through about 2-3gb per month in data and thats mostly just on the handset. it can be even more if i tether.
very straightforward ordering process, i walked in told them what I wanted and they explained everything pretty throughly for me. anytime I have had a problem customer support is very helpful in getting it solved.
My family is from rural Iowa so I lose service when traveling to see them occasionally. it will go from 0 bars to 1 bar but I'm fine with that b/c I get to visit more and I don't talk on the phone hardly as it is.
Rural TMO never offered service to the Rural areas. Their network was ALL BOUGHT and merged together when it became TMO. They focus still on the metro areas or the areas that always had service. That is noted on many websites.
