Who you got? Anyone to avoid? We have T-Mobile and are looking to change.

Why are you considering changing?! I thought you LOVED T-Mobile in the cities. What cons do you have?

I've been on Verizon for years and don't have any compliants. Why did you switch from Verizon?

That is a very good point. I haven't had a problem with Verizon in the past*, but I should not be using them out of principle

I actually lied and am not switching but wanted to start the conversation.

I would consider MetroPCS since it is basically the same as TMobile but cheaper but I don't know anyone with it so I'm not sure about it.

The only thing in Maine I would consider is Google fi. My coverage seems to keep getting worse and worse. At work Sarah has to text me to call her since I can't seem to receive calls

Thing is no cell phones work regardless of carrier at my work. Doesn't help or WiFi is so bad I can't consistently use wifi calling

Honestly I have 2 routers sitting at home better than what we use now. I've already done more than enough for free at work so I'm just letting myself suffer until our owner fixes it

I am trying out project fi with a new cell phone #. My service at work is unacceptable and wifi calling with Verizon is useless. I will be using two phones for the month to see how it goes

After 6 hours testing is say no. Data speed is super slow also. I'm also trying to decide if the issue is my pixel. Carrying my turbo with my Verizon sim in it also.

MetroPCS is nationwide owned by T-mobile. Metro is good for what I need.
