My T-Mobile #TestDrive took us into the Poconos last weekend, and I’m sorry to report that the carrier has a great deal of work to do north of Bethlehem, even along the major highways. Streaming music became impossible along I-78 and up I-33 into Stroudsburg while my AT&T service remained pretty robust.
Also, keep in mind that if you do this, you’ll spend the first of your seven days just setting up the phone. T-Mobile sends you text message with links to guide you along, but for me, these didn’t come along until three or four days into the test.
I do like the iPhone 5s, but it really isn’t significantly faster than my iPhone 5. The camera has some nifty features, and I think the image quality is better, but you can decide for yourself.
