I don't know why everyone is having such problems, we've had comcast for 4 years and not one issue. We have the x1 for free, free hbo, all the channels, and we bundle it with 50meg internet, all for 79 bucks a month, and anytime I have had a problem, like the net going out, they have someone out that same day to fix it. Sad that we're moving and have to change providers!
I have had tMobile for 13 years, back when it was voice stream, and never had a problem with it. I have unlimited EVERYTHING, for 70 bucks. Best deal in town, and the 4g is the fastest. I'll put my phone up against anyone's. And they are great at getting you the phone you want for a good price!
I just switched from 7 to 8 2 days ago, and so far, no problems. I didn't like the apps, so I put it into desktop mode and bam, just like windows 7 but smoothr. I use the programs (like skype and facebook) instead of the apps, and I love it!
My friends and I are stationed all over the globe, from the US to Australia, this help us keep in touch SO MUCH! EVERY weekend we all hop on. I pay for premium, so 10 of us can video chat at one time! It's fantastic!
