My con­tract with Verizon Wireless is al­most up, and since I’ve had con­sis­tent­ly bad ex­pe­ri­ences with them when I got my con­tract two years ago I switched to T-Mobile. Not on­ly did Verizon not send me the re­bate for my phone, they fudged up my num­ber trans­fer and had ridicu­lous­ly crap­py cus­tomer ser­vice. Oh yeah, they al­so turned over my call records to the NSA, which was in di­rect vi­o­la­tion of my con­tract. T-Mobile hooked me up with a new phone, and more min­utes at the same price that Verizon was charg­ing and re­fused the NSA’s de­mand. Activation was a cinch, and I even got a prompt email re­spon­se from an ac­tu­al hu­man to a sug­ges­tion I had. Go T-Mobile, even if you need short­er con­tracts and a plan with low any­time min­utes but un­lim­it­ed nights and week­ends. [Yeah right, no one has that.]

Oh yeah, if you get a new cell phone re­mem­ber to re­cy­cle the old one. If you live in Cleveland there are three dif­fer­ent places I found that will take your old phone:

1. League of Women Voters
2. Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
3. Cleveland Museum of Natural History

The League of Women Voters will be get­ting mine.

  1. Does your new plan al­low to get text mes­sages with­out cost­ing you your first born?

  2. I am so sick of all cell phone plans. It gross­es me out that you have to pay ex­tra for text mes­sages, first and fore­most. It doesn’t cost them a dine- it’s just a way for them to squeeze ex­tra mon­ey out of you. I al­so hate that none of the plans re­al­ly make any sense. I ALSO HATE that NY phone tax­es add an ex­tra $10 – 15 a mon­th to my bill. If it weren’t nec­es­sary, I’d ditch my phone com­plete­ly. I HATE CELL PHONE COMPANIES.

  3. Yeah, all I want is a plan that gives me 100 any­time min­utes and un­lim­it­ed nights and week­ends, for like 25 bucks a mon­th.

  4. How’s T-Mobile re­cep­tion in Tremont? I’ve been think­ing about ditch­ing Verizon as well, for a num­ber of rea­sons (es­pe­cial­ly blue­tooth crip­pling).

    Also, does T-Mobile crip­ple their blue­tooth at all, and if so, to what ex­tent?
