Which cell phone carriers have good service this year? Is T-Mobile any better than it's been in the past?

I will be in the Swan Lake/Liberty/Ferndale area.

I've been very happy with AT&T.

In most areas, but not if you go far away from the main roads.

Verizon is always the best up there.

Last summer, a lot of people found it spotty in my area.

I did better with Boost on the Sprint network.

YMMV. My experience with Boost has been very good.

I had them last summer. AT&T definitely is better, especially away from the main roads.

Try at&t there.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I got a free T-Mobile sim, activated it with no money, ported the number to cricket, got a bill credit for porting from T-Mobile and for activating a new line to cover $140 worth of service, and activated for 2 months on the $70 unlimited plan (you have to pay for 2 months to get port in bill credit). I didn't find it too hard.

Where did you get the T-Mobile sim? Does Cricket still have that promotion?
