Leave it to a guy that writes in all caps to put together the best post I've yet to read on the state of the world, the internet, and That-Hashtag-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. He crystallizes a lot of the thoughts I've been having regarding all of this. It's amazing and well worth reading.

I realize I am tempting fate by making this post public instead of to my usual groups, but this is just too damned good not to share. The all-caps presentation is not an error. Just roll with it, everyone.

With the announcement of T-Mobile paying ETF fees, my last barrier to leaving Big Red crumbled, so this weekend +Janice Glisson and I took a trip to the store and plunked down all of 25 bucks (because we bought cases) for new phones. She got an S4, and I picked up a Nexus 5. I've only had it a weekend, but here are some quick impressions:

T-Mobile store experience: Awesome. Sales guy Mark (GulfView Square location) was knowledgeable, friendly, and moved everything right along. Good guy, A+, would buy from again.

Nexus 5: I like it. Feels solid, looks good, and the camera is not nearly the mess it has been made out to be (I updated to 4.4.2 immediately after getting it home).

T-Mobile service: This I am not nearly as happy about. If I'm at a point of interest like a store or travelling on a highway or major road, service is good to great. But at my house, in order to even hope I get service I have to either be upstairs or in my kitchen downstairs. I realize I live outside of a major urban area, but I'm not exactly far from civilization. The Nex 5 does not support Wifi calling, unfortunately, so that option is out. And things are not much better at the office. I can get some signal outside the building; HSPA or 3G, depending on which way the wind is blowing. But inside it's zero bars. And I need this phone to work, my job depends on being able to make and receive phone calls, even in 2014.

T-Mobile, I want to love you guys. I really, really want to love you guys. You have no idea how much. Everything you have been doing for wireless is awesome. But the service thing is killing me right now. I don't want to have to switch to a different phone so I can get Wifi calling, which is at best a cheat, and doesn't solve signal problems if I am somewhere wifi is not available. But if it's a choice to going back to a contract or staying with you, for now, I'm staying. You're saving me money. I just don't want the service problem to become a liability.

I had to say goodbye to the Nexus 5 today. I loved pretty much everything about it - battery life left a bit to be desired, but otherwise it was a great phone and a lovely piece of hardware to hold.

Unfortunately, my house seems to be nigh-impervious to T-Mobile's cellular reception. Despite the fact that I live in an area labeled as "Very Strong" by their coverage map, I only get signal in one room of the house. So, I dropped by the store today, and traded in. My new baby is the Xperia Z1s. It's a bit bigger than I'm used to, but not terribly so. Very quick impressions: I like. The UI isn't bloated, and the enhancements they do have don't feel like they get in the way, like they did on the GS4.

And bonus points for the dedicated camera button.

Let me know how that phone works out for you. I have the iPhone 4s and pretty much hate it. I'm still with Sprint, however, and trying to decide what'll work best for us. We do very little on our phones - text, email and a few games...hardly ever actually use it as a phone....so battery life is important :D

Room was clean, employees were nice and efficient. However, my room was not serviced after the first day until I left, and the elevator is, at best, unreliable, and you cannot. use the stairs going up without an employee to open the door.
