I need to replace my phone. I decided to pay upfront for my Galaxy S4 and do a prepaid service with T-mobile. Loved it! Never had to call for a minute to argue one or 2 things on my bill. Too bad I broke my phone and it'll cost too much to fix. I need to be able get insurance on my next phone cus I got butter fingers. Embarrassed
I'm looking at that Note 3 (Note 2 will do too).Geek
I can't fcuk with t-mobile and contracts. They have a track record of up my bill. 
I hate having to worry about overages and whatever.
Which carrier's bills are consistent and have good deals? I had sprint before but they have sh*tty service and don't even have the Everything plans anymore. 

PS: I'll be able to apply employee discounts to all but tmobile (unless I use a "different" employer). 

They girl at the store talked me into going with Verizon over Att cus they a lil cheaper cus of taxes. I feel like I'm signing a contract with the devil.

My signal with Sprint seems to suck balls in stores which is annoying. I don't get a lot of dropped calls, but if I'm trying to look up product reviews...so annoying

Other than that they're cool

I don't know how much this matters but on ATT you can be on the phone and at the web at the same time wheras on Verizon and Sprint you can't. It sounds obscure but you'd be surprised how much that comes in handy. It's not the end of the world if you don't have it but it makes things that little bit more convenient.

Ohh, see I research products a LOT on my phone when I'm shopping. I had Sprint right before. Their network was just OK. I wasn't sure if they had improved.

I thought it was just for their iPhones. That could definitely be good for me since I multi-task a lot.

Ranked #1 for sh*tty customer service, At&t will fug up your bills too. I left them (for tmobile actually) after 7 years due to their store's shady practices and no accountability.Thumbs Down

my family has at&t. The service is good, i also look up hair product reviews while im in the store. It works so long as im not in the woody boondocks area in florida. No dropped calls. But they will screw with your bills. My dad is constantly complaining about them over charging and hidden fees.
We had verizon in NY, expensive as hell. I didnt have a smartphone back then so i dont know how their internet was.

My brother said t-mobile is horrible

I don't think that's true...cause I can def tether while I'm on the phone.

Go to Verizon.

The LG G3 is the next big boy in phones but it won't be released until summer.
It's a beauty

Walmart Talk plan with all the new phones .
Net 10 if you can spend 40 minutes repeating you question to a woman in India  .
 
I can't stand ATT /Sprint mafia mentality . I need to switch . I want the new samsung . Hubby told me to join the one in the ARRP commerical . I only use the phone for business/work  . I am not a senior citizen .Cry
 
 Check HSN /QVC . The popular companes like sprint offer better deals . HSN can sell 200 plans in 3 minutes . You have 2 hours left to order any phone on QVC for 5 easy payments . I need to stop watching .

I hate to know so many of us have issue with sprint but I'm glad I'm not alone.
I really hate them and need to make a change.

We live near mountains and I have bad service at home so I called Sprint and they said a new tower will be in my area next month, That was in January. They lied. SMH

Sprint is good where I live.
I can use up to 11 gbs of data cause I stream movies at work.
I need that unlimited.

Yep, it's location because I had no problems with Sprint until I moved.

I want to go with ATT because my building at work is wired by them. My Verizon service wont work unless I'm by a window or outside. All of my coworkers with ATT can get service just fine.

Sprint is full of $hit. I've had the same unlimited data plan with them for my wireless aircard since 2008 and now that I want to upgrade my aircard since it's so old they're telling me that their new aircards are no longer compatible with my unlimited data plan. Sprint can suck it. I refuse to give up my unlimited data plan!Angry

I have AT&T.  I'm not sure how much my bill is a month, but I seldom have problems with my service. 

I've stuck with AT&T because I'm grandfathered in (I still have unlimited text and internet - no paying per usage).  I think that's ridiculous, but I believe that all companies do it.
