I'm moving to the San Jose area soon and I was looking for personal experiences with T-Mobile. I read a thread from two years ago that said T-Mobile wasn't too good, so I was wondering if it is sufficient now?

tmo is alright, not good not bad. it's average, i drive around the valley (sunnyvale, mtn view, san jose, etc.) and I find there are some dead spots (like at my house so I use the WLAN option) and some weak spots, but overall I get reception when I need it.

No problems with T-Mobile. I drive from Los Gatos to Santa Clara and once in long awhile, I'll hit a dead spot but most of the time, the signal is fine.

Thanks for everyone's comments . I was getting really worried and was considering switching carriers....but I love Tmobile so much. T Mobile customer service has been amazing...it seems everytime I call for help they're really sorry and end up giving me free minutes.

My area around Aborn/White in San Jose is a well known cell phone dead zone, particularly with AT&T. T-Mobile still reaches there. However, I was in downtown San Francisco a week ago around Market/Fell and was unable to connect to the network. I had to wait until I got to Daly City to make my call.

I have T Mobile (Santa Clara) and I have no problems. I get a few call failed (dropped calls) but I am use to that with other cell phone companies.

T-Mobile is pretty decent in the Rivermark area of Santa Clara. I lived there for seven years and didn't have any issues with mobile phone coverage. My experience is that the T-Mobile coverage is decent within the Bay Area, though there are definitely dead zones sprinkled about.
