On Friday I started the switch from Cincinnati Bell Wireless to T-Mobile. I can't complain about CBW's service or coverage but I was tired of having to pay full price whenever I wanted to upgrade my phone and how, because they're not a national provider, the only place I could get ringtones and the like was right from CBW. Plus the plan I had (their cheapest) was much more than I needed. Last month was an unusually heavy month for me cell-minute-usage-wise and still the total of all my minutes was less than a quarter of my available peak minutes. T-Mobile had a plan that fit my needs much better so that once I've added on several features that I didn't have with CBW (like internet access on my phone) I'll still be paying less per month.
Plus I couldn't pass up their deal on what I consider to be a pretty cool little camera phone. In the store the Samsung e315 is $199.99, online it's free. At CBW they've only got one phone under $99.99 and a mere 2 flip phones.
I'm probably giving up some coverage area in switching away from CBW but the other advantages were just irresistible. The phone's supposed to arrive by FedEx Wednesday and the number port's scheduled for Thursday.
