    Sprint will get you the best deal but depends of how is their service in your area.

    Sprint isn't bad in my area...so price-wise if Sprint were to get the iPhone that would make more sense..gotcha...but if they don't get it by chance....ATT/Verizon??

    I'm also rocking the TMO 3GS...not particularly satisfied with the data speeds or poor coverage, but...the pricing makes up for it! XD

    AT&T is considerably cheaper than Verizon, though definitely make sure you get service in your area.

    Very true about the 3Gs on TMO...it could be a better experience but paying what I'm paying I'm not complaining ;)

    I think he's talking about price of calling plans. I have VZW but I get a 10% discount from my work which not everyone knows about. Depending where you work (government or big company) you may be able to get a discount.

    If that's the case, then a forum is the worst place to ask. Do research because the best we can do is give the OP tips for the FAN discounts.

    Boy those are expensive!

    I pay A$69 a month for pretty much the same and the 32GB iPhone 4 was free with the contract. My carrier also unlocked it for free.

    We use iPhones on both carriers in my family. I'm lucky to live in an area where both supply great coverage. There's very little difference between the two, and other than being fashionable to hate AT&T, I've always enjoyed terrific service & support from them.

    Pricing is where Verizon it at a disadvantage. They follow the Apple model of charging premium prices. Verizon's are somewhat hidden by breaking them down into many different categories on the bill. Thus confusing their customers.

    That said I digress. The very best choice is to pick the carrier with the strongest coverage in your area. That's a rule that applies no matter what brand of phone you prefer.
