    Greetings y'all.

    I am having a current dilemma with my Sprint phone/service on Long Island New York. They are giving me trouble about replacing the 4 month old phone I have that is dropping calls, overheating, and giving me "Radio Interference." messages.

    In addition, I need to get a family plan with my GF who is moving with me on Long Island in a month.

    I'm looking for advice:

    Option 1: try to fight for a replacement of HTC EVO and get her a droid on Sprint

    Option 2: Cancel Sprint, pay the fee and get two iPhone 4's on AT&T

    Option 3: Cancel Sprint, pay the fee and get two iPhone 4's on Verizon

    Option 4: Wait for iPhone 4S and go to Verizon or AT&T (if it even comes out)

    AT&T has had known issues with network but is cheaper, Verizon is around 20 to 30 more a month but has superior network...

    Thoughts? Opinions? Advice?

    Best,

    AS

    Wait 4 months, and get the 4S or 5.

    I'd recommend Verizon, I've never dropped a call before. There are many, many, many, many, many threads on the Verizon vs AT&T thing, just search around.

    Same can be said for me in the dropped calls aspect. I'm with AT&T and don't drop calls. Plus, I have faster internet connection than any Verizon iPhone.

    I wasn't bashing AT&T. Both service providers have their ups and downs.

    Verizon has extremely low pings (webpages load faster)
    AT&T usually has high pings (webpages load slower)

    Verizon does better in heavily populated areas (better service)
    AT&T does worse (worse service)

    Verizon has slower 3G speeds (slower to load youtube and video apps)
    AT&T can have faster 3G speeds (faster to load youtube and video apps)

    It all depends on where you live
