I plan on moving to Ridgeland in the next few months and currently use T-Mobile. Would it be better to stay with T-Mobile or switch to AT&T? Or are they both bad in the Ridgeland, Jackson, Clinton area? Thanks

If you're going to ALWAYS stick to the city and interstate areas, T-Mobile can be the cheapest. But their coverage out in the rural areas is horrible.

The biggest local carrier in Mississippi is Cspire (formerly Cellular South), and they are based in Ridgeland. They use the same CDMA network as Verizon, so they share antenna. They have the best rural coverage in Mississippi by far. I've never dealt with Cspire, but reports from friends and relatives says they have (or used to have) horrible customer service. I use Verizon and very rarely lose cell signal. Data signal is much worse than voice, but still Verizon/Cspire's network is better than any other in the state.

Good sources for coverage:
RootMetrics - Good maps. Some carriers use these maps instead of making their own.
CellReception - Can be used to locate specific towers.
