Tmobile never stops redefining the mobile industry that proves why they're the uncarrier compared to AT&T. I stopped having the blue striped Death Star after a few months. Thank god I switched to tmobile and been with them since uncarrier 4.

Yeah me too, even though I've got unlimited data with at&t, it's still a better deal for me to switch to cricket and save the money and subsidize the phones myself that way
