    Thanks for posting this. I am actually deciding if I want to go back to AT&T after trying Sprint. Sprint is just awful but AT&T angered me when they started throttling my data.

    Good read. Im a Verizon hostage. The coverage and 4g is excellent. It is the best. Verizon is damn expensive though, and they took my unlimited data when I got a new phone. I shouldn't have got a new phone. I should have just bought a used one and kept the unlimited plan. I've been thinking about switching to Sprint for their unlimited data, but I don't want to pay Verizon $350 for the contract.

    Thanks. I'll be buying all my phones used now for Verizon, just so I can keep my Unlimited. I get a discount on my service so I can't complain about VZW pricing.

    Sprint here, and loving it so far.

    Unlimited LTE and 3 iPhones and a basic phone for $199 a month exactly. Saved me $40/mo over Verizon.

    Before At&t= Android Samsung, I felt for service I hit a wall.
    After Verizon= Iphone5, Phone and data plans, I'm not locked down for a package, Iphone5 A6 processor is power in my hands. For years people around me were with Verizon, me I muddled with T-Mobile and At&t. I should I have gone to Verizon a very long time ago.

    I also recently jumped the T-Mobile ship and went to Verizon. I was dropping calls at the end with T-Mobile and I had enough with them. I'm happy with Verizon thus far.

    I use Smart Talk, from Wal-Mart. No contract and have been very satisfied. Some of the phones run over the AT&T network, and some run over the Verizon network. I am paying a lot less on Straight Talk, than I was to AT&T, for a lot less in services.

    Same here. Got an iPhone 5 the round about way. I may move to Android due to the way cheaper price for recent devices.

    FWIW: there's rumor Apple may release a cheaper version of the iPhone in the future.

    I'm happy enough with AT&T. But I only use my phone for talking on occassion and texting when a few words are enough to get the point across. I don't need it or want it run my life.
