Which Cell Carrier Do You Use?

Obviously, I use AT&T to power my iPhone. I'm not saying that it's the best network out there (hello, dropped calls!), but it's the one I prefer to stay at in order to enjoy the Apple smartphone. What network would I prefer to be on? Probably Verizon — they really do have the best coverage and largest network on the market.

I recently read a story on Wired that reiterated this fact, and also pointed out that they may be the best network around, but they are at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to top-of-the-line mobile devices. T-Mobile is quickly moving up the ranks with their selection of Android phones, and Sprint is still in the game with the Palm Pre. This made me wonder — which cell carrier do you use?

Sprint, been with them since 2000, we've gotten free phones many times and have a plan that they don't offer to regular customers.

I use Sprint. I have been with them for five years. They have a number of economical unlimited data plans and they allow you to tailor the plan to your needs. In my area, they have the best coverage of any of the providers. I also have wireless Sprint mobile broadband for my laptop. Their customer service is excellent. When my Blackberry Pearl stopped working last year, they sent me a replacement immediately.

Sprint, I like it, doesn't drop a call ('cept in my provider gets service, something with the building itself) and Sprint has always been good for me.

AT&T. My brother used to work for them long ago, and I've never switched. I haven't had any issue with dropped calls in a year or two though. *knock on wood*

I have AT&T. I experience dropped calls too. But I noticed that happens when I'm on the 3G network then transfers to E network because of low 3G signal. When I disable 3G, I don't usually get dropped calls. My old phone that is not 3G rarely gets dropped calls too.

AT&T even before my iPhone. The only carrier with coverage at my house. I was told over the phone that I couldn't upgrade without paying a penalty but that person told me to go to the store and in the store, I could upgrade with no problem.

AT&T, only for the iPhone. Otherwise I'd still be with Verizon. I'd prefer to be with Verizon, but my iPhone is my baby. :)

Sprint. I don't have the Pre, but I love my Centro and I'm about to upgrade to the Treo Pro.

I have AT&T and I have the Lg Vu. It's not too bad but I drop multiple phone calls a day which is a seriously pain!! Ugh!

Verizon does offer the EnVTouch, which is a very nice phone. I'd just prefer an iPhone because I'm an Apple snob. :)

i have ATT. i've been with them since 1999 and they've been good to me all along the way. any issues have been handled professionally, quickly, and to my satisfaction. they have stellar phones, and i'm not bound to the same phone like my parents were with Verizon. i rarely have signal strength issues.

Verizon does have good handsets (hello htc touch pro2!) they just don't do the best advertising for them. I have a samsung schi-i760 that has been amazing for me, and has received lots of compliments. The problem with verizon is that they (like I said before) don't advertise their better handsets, and they also don't like to keep phones very long in there rotation. The iphone has been around for a few years now, and verizon has gone through numerous "iphone killers". I think they must have some kind of stronghold put on them by LG, even though their phones lack.

AT&T--and I'm super annoyed. I was waiting until after law school to get myself the iphone. This summer when the new versions came out at those wonderful prices I was unable to get one at that price because I was already a customer and was not eligible for an upgrade. So I either have to wait until June 2010 or (they suggested) break my contract, get a new phone number, and then get that price. UGHH! So, I am still without an iphone---just waiting and seeing if it changes carriers this winter.
