Personal Coverage Check
If you're a current or potential subscriber to T-Mobile, this is handy: Personal Coverage Check. You can check by a city or specific address to see the quality of signal you'll get when using your cellphone. The results may also indicate where T-Mobile HotSpots are located. Checking my old office address in New York generated a map with dark green, indicating great signal, and many pink dots, indicating HotSpots.
Currently a fan of this service. Recently I called them to consolidate our phone accounts into one plan. The customer rep looked up our records and recommended the best one for us, actually saving us money. The rep was really nice, didn't push anything else, and it was all quite painless.
