TMobile Coverage

by tussin / July 22, 2004 6:48 AM PDT

i was looking at the t-mobile coverage map on this site, and it seems to be a bit spotty in my area (Wilkes-Barre, PA). Do u guys think the coverage will be fine or am i taking a major risk? Will other carriers provide much better coverage? Thanks

If you havelocal coverage, you may run the risk of roaming. If you have nationwide service, you should be fine providing AT&T and Cingular have GSM coverage around your area. T-Mobile has spotty coverage in my area too, which is why I didn't sign up for their service, and at the time I looked at T-Mobile, when it was Voicestream, I didn't like their plans because at the time, it was unlimited weekends rather than unlimited nights and weekends, nor did they offer no roaming and long-distance charges on nationwide service. But beware, Cingular and AT&T don't always have good reception in many parts of the country. Those services also have lots of complaints, so you shouldn't rely on their networks for good reception. That's why I don't have them. I live in Gary, IN and I have Verizon Wireless and work great here.

T-Mobile's coverage stinks.

Plus their Customer Service is HORRIBLE. I've been trying to solve an issue (area code from wrong state) for a month. They have been unresponsive, rude, and incompetent. (I'm being nice.)

Do yourself a favor: go with anyone OTHER THAN T-mobile.

That's really hard to say, some companies cover very well in areas with less mountain coverage. T-mobile, for me, worked out really well when I took a trip to Madisonville, KY from Minneapolis, MN. The only problem I had was entering in Indiana. There were coverages that rendered my phone with the message, "No Service". However, when I entered into the cities and towns everything worked well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
