Roaming in the Carolinas is included with any T-Mobile postpaid nationwide plan without extra charges, and the coverage is good since you can roam on both SunCom and Cingular.

I have had Sprint and Verizon, live outside of Charlotte. Hands down, the Verizon coverage is best. Granted, I ditched Sprint 2 years ago, it may be better now.
I rarely drop calls with Verizon.

They said I'll be going off of Cingular's towers. One good thing about T-Mobile not having service there is that if I move there, I'll hopefully be able to get out of my 2-year contract without paying the fees... which would be really great because T-Mobile is the devil!!!!

(Incredibly bad customer service)
Agree about T-Mobile!!

Default T-mobile works in NC

Your T-mobile phone will work just fine here. It will roam on Cingualr and Suncom, but you won't get charged raoming. You'll lose free mobile-to-mobile minutes, but that's about all.

I've been roaming with T-mobile in NC for almost 2 years.

Default cell phone service

Hi Angel, I'm going to say Cingular but I have a good friend who may dispute it I also have several colleagues who use Verizon and find that it also gives good coverage.

Does anyone know about the Cullowhee and Boone areas and cell phones? We will be relocating to Asheville and our oldest son has been accepted to Western Carolina and App. State. He will make up his mind, hopefully, in the next few weeks.
On a visit, I had no trouble in Cullowhee with Cingular. My son's best friend, who was with us, had no coverege with Nextel. I did not have coverage in Boone but he had limited (spotty) with the Nextel.

I had Sprint for a while and hated it. I went back to Alltel. But I probably would recommend Verizon for heavy Cell phone users. I don't even come anywhere near using the 200 minutes a month that I do have.
