    Hi... new here. Not too sure how to understand that coverage map. In an area where i vacation a lot, the coverage says "850MHz Roaming coverage". I have a nationwide free long distance plan... will i be able to get service there? And, will it cost me extra? Can anyone help?

    Thanx

    What phone model do you have? The phone will determine if it will work on the 850 network.

    compass.t-mobile.com can't find my street address, and the nearest major intersection is a T-Mobile Not Spot, although I get 5 bars at home, even in the garage level. Go figure. One place I work has 5 bar signal (according to the map), but only Cingular phones can be used where we sit, in the basement...and I can't get the :censored: phone to latch on to that Cingular cell.

    On a side note, what I learned on my spring break when I visited friends in Seattle is how TMO and other carriers keep tabs on one another. One has a side job working for a company that monitors all the mobile carriers in the area and keeps stats on the various voice and data services they offer. One device flaked out and needed to be reset, and I happened to be along for the ride. Quite informative. Think of it as a "carrier hotel" for cellphones and you'll get the picture. This company is a data broker to the carriers--here's how you stack up against them for dropped calls, etc.

    I was aware of the personal coverage check... but I never knew how dead on it is in my area. I have three bars (fair) on the map, meaning that service is good outdoors, but phone may not work indoors. This is what I have... I tried 4 phones, the Nokia 6010, 6030, MotoRIZR Z3, and the V195. The Nokias did better than the Motos though inside my place... the Z3 was the worst in the reception department.

    Nice job TMobile with the maps.... if only Verizon would get off the all red mapping LOL

    G1 might be the next great thing but Apple isn’t shaking in their boots speeds.
