T-Mobile’s latest “Uncarrier” move means that it may be cheaper than ever to try the carrier out. If you decide to switch from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, they will pay your early termination fee, up to $350. This is in addition to the maximum of $300 that T-Mobile will offer you for trading in a Verizon, T-Mobile, or AT&T device.
Ultimately, this makes it easier than ever to try T-Mobile out. This is important, as T-Mobile’s network isn’t fantastic. In some areas, it’s more than acceptable. In others — rural areas, I mean you — the infrastructure is severely lacking, especially compared to Verizon and, to a slightly lesser extent, AT&T. Still, T-Mobile certainly offers some of the best prices on plans, and they’ve put an emphasis on providing excellent service. I’m a T-Mobile prepaid customer, and I love the company — now if only they’d add some more towers and really kick their LTE rollout into overdrive.
