"Please wait, while the NEXTEL subscriber you are trying to reach is located".

Maybe it's time for a similar message for T-Mobile?

There's also more to it than just the fake rings, they also got busted not connecting phone calls to customers served by 3 rural carriers.

There are rural carriers in Iowa (and maybe also Wisconsin) that are permitted to charge higher interconnection fees. They use this to set up "free" virtual "chat" or "conference" rooms. You call into the conference room and they make about 5/min for everyone there.

I dunno, based on the report TMobile was warned about it, said they fixed it and then when more complaints came in was found to have not fixed it. I'm not sure what TMobiles excuse for not connecting them are.

You beat me to that but I remember that when I had Nextel from 2001 thru 2005 time frame and that would help for ALL carriers cause I have a few friends that use T-Mobile & MetroPCS and I notice that I had a few times when calling my friends that there was a delay or so.

I remember a long-ago discussion about AT&T (or Cingular) vs Verizon, and how the CDMA carrier generated ringing tones that did not necessarily match the ringing of the receiving phone (like landlines would). Supposedly, GSM carriers passed-through the same rings from the receiving phone and of course, did match.

But, technology advances and phone calls are much more digitally manipulated, now.
