said by linicx: Been there done that. I was able to return my 2 handsets before it was to late. The service was so bad I could have it in the bathroom but not the kitchen.
When I had At&T pre-paid, it did not roam and was useless unless there was a tower very nearby. It was a secret that cost me $40. The retailer who sold it to me thought it was funny, and I quickly shed my At&T home services, too.
Services are only as good as the capability of the phone.
I know. Mine was so bad I could call from outside my house and and it would not ring inside,.In the middle of a 100.000 pop town where AT&T pretends to offer service, there are 2 Walmart stores and 1 Sam's Club, I couldn't call across the street with AT&T; I could with my daughter's T-Mobile.
Having said this, I would bet on T-Mobile and Walmart in any Walmart market; I would also bet on Sprint/Verizon in Rural America because they roam together. In the meantime you find AT&T's biggest presence in governemen sites; state, state offices; state departements - which is why I don't get an IPhone or IPad; I'm too far away from an AT&T tower to have dependable signal. .
