    I am thinking of changing our service. Leaning towards Straight Talk, $45/month 3 gigs on ATT towers. Also looking at T-Mobile. Tired of contracts. I think in a few years nobody will have contracts.

    Anything but Sprint! Their data network is freaking terrible.

    T-Mobile is good in certain cities (e.g. NY Metro).

    I think StraightTalk uses multiple carriers; AT&T should be fine.

    Verizon (CDMA) of course is the gold standard nationwide but their pricing is atrocious. I'm leaning heavily towards GSM going forward (I've been on a Sprint reseller/MVNO with CDMA and it just sucks), which basically means either AT&T or T-Mobile, which basically means T-Mobile. :) But I will do it through either MetroPCS (owned by T-Mobile) or Ting, who will support both Sprint and T-Mobile networks in a month or two...

    I think we are all looking into this one way or the other. I am so sick of hidden charges and bill raises and charges for shit i have no clue what they are. My bill keeps going up yet my plan never changes.

    ATT&T

    I have t-mobile. But their coverage is spotty in rural areas. Fine if you stay in big cities

    T-Mobile is non-existent round here. Straight Talk is probably the best option.

    I have used Verizon for years since ATT sucked here. But next time I will go no-contract and a cheapo service as I don't use the thing that much anyway.
