AT&T worked great everywhere...except at my house despite AT&T's claim that I should get full coverage. Whenever I got within a ~300 yards, my signal would drop to zero and stay there.

    It's like the old Verizon slogan, "a phone is only as good as the network it's on" [paraphrased]. I'm not totally sold on T-Mobile, but at least it works where I live
    WHat about the sound quality? Can you compare att sound quality vs t-mobile? Also were you on a contracted att plan or pre-paid one?

    Thanks.

    P.S. Btw. my att reception would go down to no service or 1 bar at best as soon as i entered my building. Strangely, as soon as i dock my iphone, i'd get 4 bars. On t-mobile my reception is excellent.

    I purchased the iPhone when it first came out and used it on ATT for a couple of weeks. I found the call quality mediocre. Data speeds were slow and made browsing with Safari pretty painful. I blamed it on EDGE, and the fact that the iPhone had such a data intensive browser ("the full internet not he mobile internet"). You tube was a complete loss, if you were trying to watch over EDGE and not WiFi. I was coming from a blackberry pearl on T-mobile. I returned the iPHone and happily went back to the pearl. Fastfoward several months. The iPhone is now unlocked, two hundred dollars cheaper, and alot of other hacks are available. My unlocked iPhone on T-mobile, now holds calls beautifully, call quality is great, best of all -- browsing is pretty good. I can even watch You Tube on an edge connection with out an issue. You just have to wait about 5-10 sec for it to load the video, once it starts playing it if very fluid. In my experience the service is far superior with T-mobile.
    Furthermore, in my opinion, I think the iPhone is a much better fit with T-mobile over ATT. For several reasons mostly related to WiFi.
    1. Apple wants you to use Wifi, so does T-mobile. In fact they now include access to all of their hotspots and EDGE data for $20
    2. Apple has a Deal with Starbucks for users using the new upcoming WiFi iTunes Store. Guess what? All starbucks have T-mobile Hot Spot WiFi.
    3. It would be fantastic if the iPhone had UMA to be used on wifi spots. For some reason, I don't think Apple would have a problem with putting UMA technology in their phones if 'their' network supported it.

    If you can't tell, I am a big fan of T-mobile. I think they have great services and great service. If they can just get their rear end moving with 3G we would be all set.

    my 0.02 or maybe 0.04

    To be quite honest, I didn't really notice too much of a difference in sound quality. I was on a contracted plan but was able to get out under AT&T's 30-day trial (aka buyer's remorse) period. Since I waited more than 72hours, though, I had/have to eat the activation charge. T-Mobile, however, was more than happy to get me back and waived the re-activation charge.

    I lost my job a couple of weeks ago, went nuts using my phone while interviewing/job searching. I realized that I might be over my minutes, so I called T-Mobile customer service to see if I had and what my overage rate was. The guy told me, asked why my usage had gone up, I told him, he said "Ok, I'm gonna give you 200 bonus minutes to hold you over until your month starts over". Their customer service is great, their reps know what they are talking about, and they actually treat their customers like human beings. I'm sure every so often there is a bad one, but in my dealings, T-Mobile is awesome. I used to work for Cingular a couple of years ago, and frankly their customer service went to crap after the AT&T merger. Just my $0.02.
