We got a T-Mobile antenna booster, when we found out the coverage was poor. When we tried to file an engineering ticket, the T-Mobile customer service rep said "we already... Continue Readinghave 140 engineering complaints for your area, and the system won't let me file another". Hmm.
Unfortunately, the coverage, from the booster is very, very weak. It adds a bubble, between 3 and 5-feet in size, and isn't strong enough to use in the kitchen. We would have better signal coverage if we left the phone upstairs next to the window, and used a Bluetooth headsets. Perhaps T-Mobile could make a bluetooth phone extender, which works like a cordless phone. This way, we could leave the T-Mobile phones upstairs, next to the windows, and use the cordless bluetooth handset around the house. It would be handy if the Bluetooth Cordless also supported callerid, receive text messages and take pictures. Then, the service would work in the living room, kitchen, and basement.
So, we're considering Cricket. With AT&T's verified Coverage, and Cricket's rate, we'd be better off.
I like the idea of the metro tiles, but I think they should be on the desktop, not the start menu. Replacing static icons on your desktop with proper live... Continue Readingtiles would be a really cool feature, and allow the UI to remain seamless, because you would still have your taskbar and window panes available at all times. I feel like switching between the desktop and start menu is very jarring as it is, and this would eliminate that. You lose none of benefits of either system, and it solves a pretty fundamental issue. It seems like a no-brainer to me.
