Another Verizon convert here.

Only one that gives me signal to receive my wife's "check-ups" all the way between Conroe and College Station (SH National Forest).

My ATT phone and GF's Sprint phone both worked through there. I know this because she listened to her garbage music through headphones while I listened to beautiful, sonorous music at the same time.

Sprint worked the first two months we had it...and after that it never worked in the car during commute to school, and hardly ever worked even at our house on Lake Conroe.

Granted we left them about 1.5yrs ago.

I've never used ATT...found the contracts unappealing.


With Verizon I can use Pandora in bumfuck Richards, TX, and my brother and I can actually hold a conversation through our helmet mics while flying up 149.

I dropped sprint 4 years ago when they overcharged me 750 dollars 3 months in a row. I paid the contract break and everything. They would over charge me and my phone would shut off which I needed for work. Never did get an explanation as to why it was happening.

I had a very similar situation with a replacement phone when they failed to provide a return box and every storefront told me we couldn't return the phone in person. It went on for 3mos.

The other thing Sprint likes to do with their continually changing product lines is to send you a different phone (with less options) when you make an insurance claim.

I'm in the business. Sprint is an awful joke. Verizon and ATT are legit and T-M is sold.

I've keep seeing sprint's ads for unlimited data. "We don't slow down like t-mobile! We don't charge more if you go over 2gb!"

Yes, for 80 ******* DOLLARS a month. I pay $40 on ATT's old unlimited plan, no slowing, no extra charges.

I've never had a problem with AT&T, and I got my iPhone before the restricted data plans went into effect. Then again, I don't do a whole lot of audio streaming on the road - that's why I have an iPod and Sirius/XM. My folks switched to Sprint a while back and their service sucks unless you're in a big city or close to a big highway.

Those that have ATT and an iPhone...

Any of you stream pandora in high amounts? How much data does it really go through?

I stream it for about 5-hours per day at work and I was using 4GB/month. When I got the modern phone I realized that I'm going to use a lot more data now because the hardware can handle smodern internetting.

I stream Netflix and Pandora constantly, almost 40 hours a week, at work. But I still have their unlimited plan for $40. They don't offer that anymore.

Does you phone have 4g? I think the first month that I had 4g on my new phone I used something like 12gb of data. Watching netflix while bored at work on your phone is awesome.
