TMobile was great in South Florida but we get spotty service in the house here in Palo Alto as well.Great service outside.

I could have written that.

My wife has it & personally I think it works better than Verizon. With Verizon we had to go outside & stand on the driveway, so did our neighbors. Maybe it was because the area we lived in. I had Consumer Cellular & never got a dropped call or lost a call. There’s NO contract & my bill after 4 years was only $35. but it could be a little higher by now. Personally I would check out Consumer Cellular. Since we moved to Texas I have T-Mobil & don’t have any issues, but when we go up north to Ohio it’s TERRIBLE. GO WITH CONSUMER CELLULAR!

Not sure how the "boosters" would work. T-Mobile offers a free cell spot, but they require an internet connection to work. The cell spot is simply doing voice over IP for it's connection.

We switched from Verizon to T-Mobile about 3 months ago. I do notice that there are dead spots here and there that we didn't see with Verizon, but the service overall works well. My bill dropped from $80/month to $55/month.

Default T Mobile in Pine Ridge

Moved in July. Only 1 bar on the iPhones. Took out a contract with ‘Ting’, which uses the T Mobile infrastructure. Same problem, however, Ting has wi-fi calling, so the level of service in our house doesn’t matter.

When I was there in September it worked great always had 3 or 4 bars.

It is weak in the when you get out in remote areas but works great on and around the villages.

Default T mobile

Due to dense population meager investment by all mobile carriers into cell towers in Florida TMobile, ATT Sprint have very iffy service especially inside your home and in certain pockets I have Verizon and questioned other neighbors and dropped calls are common in Florida the entire state.

When I owned a home in Ft Myers everyone used to stand outside their homes to get reception.

Never sign a contract they raise your rates anyway.

I've used T-Mobile since 2003. Service has greatly improved in The Villages in the last few years. I don't recall having lost service or any dropped calls in the past 3 or 4 years here.
It works beautifully internationally.

I switched from Cricket (AT&T) to Metro(T-Mobile) 6 months ago and find many more places without signal than with Cricket(AT&T). I have no issue at home in Collier but I have no signal in a lot of other areas and stores where I never noticed a problem before, that I can remember. Not very scientific and BTW I could use your help, if you're available in the mornings, with my PickleBall scores.
