I'm seriously considering switching from AT&T because they suck and I hate them, but I have a few questions:

1) I get lovely cell signals at my house. We have a Microcell from AT&T, is there some sort of similar thing for T-Mobile? I googled (granted, quickly) and couldn't find any mention of a cell booster or anything. We'd almost certainly need one.

2) Is there any sort of requirement that the phone you trade in be a smartphone? The phone I regularly use has a busted screen, so its a no go from what I read above, however I have an older lovely dumb phone that has no such issues. Could I trade that in?

3) I have to trade in something to get the ETF reimbursement, right?

4) I don't live anywhere near a physical T-Mobile store. Will I have to go into a store to do this, or is there some way I can ship the phones in or whatever?

5) I have a corporate discount through my employer (15% I think), I'm assuming that only applies to the service itself, not to the monthly payment on the phone, right?

Sorry, that's a lot more questions than I thought.

1) No but some/most models offer wifi calling

2) No it can be a featurephone/dumbphone

3) Yes

4) I can't answer this but I'd assume you can do it over the phone/internet somehow

5) I would assume you're correct

thanks!

A couple follow up questions if you don't mind:

How good is the wifi calling? Am I going to notice a difference between wifi calling and standard calling?

Also, no wifi calling for iphone? I don't give a poo poo because gently caress Apple, but that may be a killer for the wife. Is that something that is coming at all, or is it just a non-starter?
