    Default If T-Mobile announces plan to pay your ETF to switch, will you?

    I've been considering it for a while now. My wife and I are on a family plan with the in-laws on AT&T, so we only pay $100 for 2 lines on a 10 GB shared plan (5 lines on plan, but two use almost no data). I love the price, have no problem's with AT&T, but don't really like being on a plan with my inlaws. So, depending on the details of them paying your ETF, I'll seriously consider switching. My biggest sticking point will whether they let me keep my AT&T phones (which I would like to use on their network) or if I have to trade them in and get two new T-Mobile phones.

    Switch to T-Mobile and have them pay your AT&T ETF.

    Keep your phones from AT&T to use on T-Mobile.

    End your contract with T-Mobile, take your AT&T phones and go to Straight Talk with their $45 unlimited plan.

    As it turns out, you do have to trade in your AT&T device for TMo to pay your ETF.

    Nope! No Tmo towers here in VT and att just offers much better coverage IMO. Worth the extra $10 in my book.

    I wonder how many people this promotion will draw. Could be wrong but I'd guess not many.

    If you're on one of those family plans where leaving wouldn't save you a lot of $ monthly then you're probably not leaving.

    If otoh you're getting raped on an individual verizon plan as I was, well then just educating myself about T-Mo's coverage locally & the $30 prepaid plan was enough for me to switch without the EFT incentive.
    "Oh no I gotta pay $170 for the EFT!?"...
    Except it actually saved me $130 because if I had honored the last 6mo's of the contract, I'd have paid $300 more over those 6 months (($80-30)*6) with a crappy plan of limited text/data & minutes I never use to boot.
    I mean I'll still take the $170 if someone wants to give it to me but whatever.

    From what I've read, you can just port your number so you can keep it.

    Before I could even consider a switch I need to see that they'd be able to provide the same type of coverage I have with Verizon. So far from my experience Verizon still provides the best coverage where I live and work and travel. When traveling, I've always had coverage even LTE in remote areas I didn't expect it. To me that's invaluable!

    Not to mention I still have grandfathered unlimited data and get a good discount (20%) from my employer. Switching would be a cut my nose to spite my face kind of thing. Makes no sense for me.
