    I would go with AT&T in Santa Barbara. They are likely to be the best there.

    If you wasn't happy with Cingular's coverage area in the past chances are you won't be happy with VoiceStream as they are going to be using Cingular's tower in California. For right now Cingular/VoiceStream are going to give you the same coverage.

    When your phone says "No Signal" all those anytime minutes aren't going to do you a bit of damn good.

    yup, free phone with unlimited minutes are useless if you get busy signal. i got this before with cingular.

    i didn't realize that voicestream will be sharing with cingular. but why do they even bother if the network can't handle the current problems. this sharing deal doesn't make sense.

    You will be happy with Voicestream (T-Mobile)'s coverage over Cingular, yes they are using the same infrastructure, but millions and millions of dollars, $450 million by Cingular alone, not to mention what Voicestream has put into it, for the network to be optimized, spectrum added, added towers, and more. You will not see the Voicestream name, you will only see the T-Mobile name out there, because the name is changing from Voicestream to T-Mobile, and the first launch of T-Mobile was in fact today in California and Nevada.
    Yes, one of the rate plans is:
    Nationwide Plan:
    1000 anytime minutes
    UNLIMITED Weekends
    I think UNLIMITED nights too
    Free Long Distance & Free Roaming

    Nobody, and I mean nobody beats that.

    Aiwapro I know which plan you are talking about it's 1,000 anytime minutes plus free weekends for $39.99 a month. Unlimited Nights are NOT included.

    Still its a good deal not everybody needs night minutes. I think their might be a option to add nights to that plan for a additional fee but I'm not sure.

    FYI the unlimited nights is only offered on the 3000 minute regional plan with CA and NV as the calling area nights begin at 7pm and go to 6am this feature will cost you an additional 2.99/mo

    I cant picture Voicestream's service being better than Cingular. Probably not even better than At&t's supposed gsm network. Voicestream would have to get the 'ok' and take care of 'red tape' before it can have an independant network. At least one of Cingular's size. Let's face it: Gsm companies in california NEED Cingular in order to function.

    I saw the unlimited nights option on the new T-Mobile website although it didn't say how much it was and which plans you could add it to.

    [​IMG] I too am considering signing up on T-Mobile in Santa Barbara but worry also about them being too similar to cingular (bad coverage etc.). It would be good to hear from others in SB or So. Cal. who have taken the T-Mobile plunge.

    I just wanted to second the first question on this thread as it seems it hasn't been answered directly.
