Been with AT&T since the 3GS, and don't have any real reason to switch. LTE speeds are terrific, the coverage is spotty in certain areas sometimes, but nothing that makes me feel like I have to switch to Verizon.

Still undecided between staying with Sprint or switching to T-Mobile. Both should have nice LTE coverage here by the Fall, Sprint will have the LTE 800/2500 advantage, but will the 5S even support it?

I voted for Verizon because in a perfect world that's what I'd choose, but I'll probably continue to be stuck with AT&T.

sorry to be political -

I'll never use Sprint given it has or will be acquired by China.

AT&T all the way because it has by far the greatest coverage along major Interstate highways!

Having tested out T-Mobile its not fund being on the road with "E" or "o" - not that i travel daily, however I do every couple of months

This transaction is a major concern to some of our Senators as well as it gives a very "inside" the USA ability for cyber attacks. So yes, China will gain control and access in a buy up of Sprint and yes, given the last several years of cyber attack and hacking done by China it should be a concern.

Though I'm not getting the 5s, I'm sticking with Straight Talk until they get me for breaking their policies or until another carrier is cheaper and has decent data limits with a fair price.

Nope. SoftBank has already pledged to not use Chinese equipment for the Sprint network in the United States
