Sprint. We're on a family plan with the rest of my husband's family. It's really well-priced if you're doing a group package like we are, and the unlimited data is lovely. Also, the Evo phones are nice.

I have T-mobile, and their customer service is the best I know of.


(I have also used a local provider which later was bought up by AT&T which had reasonable customer service. I moved and got a new number with Verizon, who had miserable service and caused me to end my contract early. Whatever you do, don't choose Verizon.)

T-Mobile is definitely the best bet if you have signal with them. They also have pretty good signal-sharing in places where they don't have their own towers, *except* in the state I've been living in for the last two years (apparently there was some kind of anti-trust non-monopoly lawsuit and they're not allowed to share here.) Even with poor signal indoors, though, I've still happily stuck with them because their customer service is so good. And in the other two states I spend large amounts of time in, I have either perfect signal, or better signal than most people.

I'm with Verizon, don't really know if I love it or hate it...it's expensive but the only provider in my area that gets decent service, so I'm torn lol

I live in the middle of nowhere so I have a company called cellcom. They are OKAY. When my contract is up I am going with verizon though. My internet is verizon broadband and I think the cell service would be better than what I currently have.

Internet through Verizon is AMAZING. We switched to Comcast (not by choice) and although it's OKAY...it's not the same

I've never heard of Cellcom!

I use Verizon. I like it because they had the best "blanket coverage" when I first got a cell phone (many years ago), and I need that for whenever I have to travel. They also used to have a wonderful program where you would get $100 credit every 2 years (I think it was every 2 years, when you renewed your contract) to get a new phone. They don't have that program anymore (probably lost too much money that way, but damn it was nice!) and I would think that other companies are probably able to offer pretty good blanket coverage now too. But I stay with Verizon because it works well for me, I'm pleased with it and it seems like a hassle to change. LOL

There are cheaper options available, but I'm not sure if coverage, minutes, etc. suffer with the cheaper prices or not.

I like the service. It is better than the other ones we were getting, at least I have service in most areas around where I live now.

I use O2. The quality of reception is quite remarkable. Often, I see my friends or family wandering around in a building, or even just at home, trying to get a reception, but mine works almost anywhere. Even managed to make a phone call in a cave, once.

We have had Verizon now for about 5 years after being with AT&T and getting tired of their constant dropped calls. Since being with Verizon we cannot recall ever having a dropped call on our end.

We use Sprint because my other half gets a 30% discount from where he works. I have no complaints over the service, but the styles and types of phones they carry chaps me every now and then.

When we switched, I got a Palm Pre (an original) and I really liked the Palm phones, when it came time to upgrade, the Pre2 had just come out, but Sprint decided to NOT carry it! So, I stayed with my original phone until last year, a few weeks before Christmas. I had a minor graphics flaw that they fixed in store, but in doing so, destroyed the earpiece! The replacement that was sent (a factory refurb) had the touch screen not working and the replacement for that one had a non-working keyboard. A fourth (or fifth, I forget at this point) had about half the keyboard sticking and not working a portion of the time, but it got me through Christmas.

We went in February (January was a busy time for us) and I upgraded to a Windows phone. I like the HTC Arrive, but it is a lot bulkier than other company's versions of Windows phones...if I had waited another month, I could have gotten an Android that is much thinner!

I have Verizon because they have the most reliable service around here.
They are more expensive but with the feature of free calling to other Verizon customers it works out as Verizon seems to be the dominant player.

I've had AT&T, Verizon, and am now with T-Mobile. There were ups and downs to each of those providers, but I'm really happy with T-Mobile because while they get service just about everywhere that AT&T does, the customer service has been a lot better. I'm super bummed that AT&T bought them out, because I'm worried that I'm going to lose my unlimited data package and have to go right back to having the crappy customer service that came with AT&T.

Verizon - it's the only thing that consistently works well here. I'm 'meh' on it otherwise.

I have NET10 service. I used to have T-Mobile prepaid, but NET10's prepaid service is much cheaper.

We have a really small local company that's a T-Mobile affiliate and I love their service. I pay $140 for 4 lines, unlimited internet on my phone, and text plans on 2 of the phones. The only thing that sucks is no 3g in our area (at least from our provider). I'm typically around wi-fi so it's not too big of a deal though.

Sprint. Have been with them for 6 years with my personal phone, and 9 years with the work phone. Have not had one problem with them in all those years.

I've been with Sprint for 11 years. They have been really good to me, and frankly are one of the cheaper companies out there, which is a big plus as far as I'm concerned.

I have Straight talk, which is track phone. It is the phone you go to walmart and buy the card to re-up every month. I get unlimited talk, text, and internet for 49.50 every month that is with tax here $45 card. I have had it for 2 years now. I love it, I have no contracts and no bills. So if I do not have the money for my phone that month, I do not get charged for that month. I just do not have a phone. If I want to have my phone shut off then it is done. No 200 early shut off charge. All I have to do is the the card and get on the computer punch in some numbers and it is done. I also have a place to re-up on the phone. I recommend this service for everyone it really is awesome. If you have the $500 all at once you can get a yearly card for unlimited everything and that is it. They also have cards broken down into every 6months. I never have had an issue with my phone either. I love it, also is a 24hr costumer service line, but you have to bare with them. Yes, you get India when you call. I have only had call once in 2 years. I think that was before they added the function on the phone to re-up and I my internet was out.

I have ATT but I'm switching to Verizon as soon as my contract is up.

At work, most people on my team have android phones. We're working on developing android apps and when we're together trying out different apps and sites on our phones, pages fly in for people with Verizon. Sprint is fast, but not quite as fast as Verizon and me, with my sucky ATT service, sometimes can't even load the page.

I'm not a big fan of any of them. Sprint was actually the worst. Every time I changed something about my plan, they re-upped me for 2 years. I liked the roll-over minutes of ATT/Cingular.
