    I am glad they will add that on, byt 7$! I mean Cingular has 600 (crapload weekend/nite)mins for 50$ a month, and TM will have 600 mins (unlimited both) for 39.99+6.99= 47$. Not really big savings, true TM will be nationwide (Cingular is local), but for the local markets (generally) Cingular would have the better coverage.

    Are you talking about Cingular TDMA or GSM?

    Airb - coverage varies from place to place. T-Mobile has excellent coverage in many many local (metro) areas, which are where these Cingular plans are valid. The difference, as you noted, is that T-Mobiles plans are nationwide. Also, remember there are many people who don't need the night option anyway, and won't sign up for it (like me). That makes T-M even more attractive price-wise.

    I like the $7 price point. $5 or less is not enough - too many people would sign up and the system would get overloaded, at least in the short term. At this level, people will think about whether or not they need the nights.

    Bobo - nights are 9pm - 7am, and unlimited.

    I believe that people who say they don't need something in particular is because they have learned to live without it or have never tried it before. This belief remains until one day they give it a try and start using it. Quickly afterwards, what once was a non-essential item/feature becomes indispensable. Then later on they ask themselves how could they live without it. Just my opinion on common human behavior/psychology.

    Yesterday I walked into the ATT wireless store in the village (Astor Place) and asked one of the customer service guys there when ATT plans on going GSM. Well he told me sometime in October and wouldn't comment on it any further than that. Has anyone else been told this?

    A good example would be cell phones.

    Sorry....I was saying that cell phones on a whole are something that many people now wonder just how they lived without it....just like you were saying about the night and weekend minutes.
