AT&T or T-Mobile
Hey everyone! I have an unlocked jailbroken iPhone 2g and I'm using it on T-Mobile's network. The question is should I switch to AT&T? AT&T has all the newest phones and they have pretty nice coverage in my area. I get 0-1 bars in my house from T-Mobile

AT&T all the way. I don't know what it is about AT&T that people hate. I was with Tmobile for 7 years on my parents family plan before getting my iPhone (which came out right after I finished school and got a job so I could afford it myself). Tmobile may have the highest customer service but their coverage is extremely poor, it is just no comparison to AT&T's. I was almost kicked off several times because I was buying unlocked phones from ebay and roaming onto AT&T's network so much that Tmobile almost dropped me.
I've not had any issues with coverage or poor 3G service either. It's been a world difference for me.
Total after taxes=$78.70
I'm really looking into switching to AT&T since they have bigger 3g network and show they have service in my area. What area do you reside in?

But in your original post, you say you have a 2G iPhone. I am on AT&T, have been for oooohhhhhh, let's see......12 years or so. I, too, have not had the problems that I have read on numerous forums.
AT&T coverage is just like other carrier's coverage, sometimes it is hit and miss. You may get more bars from T-Mobile in your house that AT&T, who knows.
Try someone's AT&T phone in your house to see if there is enough signal to warrant the change. Switching carriers to get the newest phones don't matter if you can't use them.
