Carrier Switch and Device Selection
Okay my favorite android enthusiasts, I need your opinions....
I am looking to switch from big red (Verizon) to T-Mobile. Why? Cost and I want to switch to GSM technology because CDMA does not work in the building where I work but GSM has perfect signal. I have been using straight talk to test signal strength everywhere I go for about 20 days now and I have only found some areas where it is lacking. Now... For my questions....
1) I will obviously need to buy a new phone to support GSM. However, I cannot decide between the following devices: Nexus 4, Galaxy S4 Non-Google Play, HTC One (Non-Google Play). What do you guys and gals think? (I do like to hack my devices so CyanogenMod support is a must) (Why Non-Google Play? Because I like to test out the stock software too but have the option to unlock the bootloader and go CyanogenMod)
1.1) If you say HTC One, Which model is the T-Mobile? I see the names HTC One X, HTC One S, etc. However, the T-Mobile site does not specify.
2) How does T-mobile compete in speeds and coverage? I love my Verizon coverage and speed but I could save 100 dollars a month just by switching carriers.
3) Do you think it is worth ditching my unlimited plan on Verizon? The T-mobile coverage map says great things about my area and my co-worker agrees with it since he has t-mobile.
If you can give more info as well that is would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!
