If you're thinking about buying T-Mobile phone service as a Christmas gift, get it only for your mother-in-law.
In other words: here's a gift for someone you want to torture on a regular basis.
In the last week, the telephone provider has crashed its internet, phone and email services FIVE TIMES for blackout periods as long as 14 HOURS here in Southern California.
T-Mobile's explanation for their crappy service? All they'll say is, "We're experiencing service interruptions in your area." Enlightening. Is Verizon or Sprint service this pathetic?
