So how do you make sure you get the best plan - and the most savings - possible? You check back here often, of course!

But that doesn't change an essential fact: T-Mobile's coverage can be dismal unless you're in a city.

Every few weeks, T-Mobile USA tries to shake the cage for attention with its "Uncarrier" announcements.
