Getting a iPhone 5 in the US? Which carrier will you be using?
I'll probably switch to Verizon, I can pay my AT&T ETF and buy a fully subsidized iPhone 5 from Verizon cheaper than if I was to stay on AT&T and buy a phone at full retail price.
To top it off, Verizon lets you use your data as you paid for it, however you want! I can FaceTime, use Personal Hotspot, and share my data with any devices I please! AT&T needs to wake up!
Edit: Also, word going around town now is that Verizon is putting up LTE on a few towers here locally, just in time for the new iPhone!
Getting unlocked and trying out T-Mobile if AT&T does anything to mess with my unlimited data.
Sprint, since I'm on a family plan and get to use my little sisters upgrade to get the phone
Though, I plan on unlocking it and using on a GSM carrier (T-Mobile or StraightTalk) sometime next year maybe.
Sprint, my company pays for it and since I am also in college I don't need extra expenses.
I'm still debating.... can't make up my mind. :/
Staying with Big Red. No reason to leave.
Same here. Still have unlimited and will pay full retail to continue to have it. At least I won't be in any contracts anymore.
Unlocked and on Straight Talk or another MVNO.
Not sure if I will be staying; but my wife wants the iPhone 5- she is on AT&T but we don't have LTE here. I am sure they will find a way to jack up the price and give 3G with the 4g icon.
Unlocked - T-Mobile.
While true, I checked out VZW's new shared plans are the only ones available to new customers and they are more expensive for someone who doesn't need unlimited minutes and txt. Thought about changing it for the broder LTE coverage.
Wait... People are still ACTUALLY choosing AT&T? How? Why?
People complain and complain about how much AT&T sucks, then they get ranked incredibly low in customer satisfaction, they get into trouble with the FCC over the whole FaceTime over 3G thing and still manage to screw it up. How are people still choosing this company???
Switching from AT&T to Verizon from an iPhone 4. Sick of the dropped calls with full bars.
GSM AT&T is the one for me.
I live in an area where Sprint does well, AT&T blows chunks, and Verizon is excellent but much more expensive (not even mentioning unlimited data or Sprint's better corporate discounts for me and my husband's employers). Sprint is the best way to go here.
But that's why this poll is kinda silly: service, pricing, popularity all vary from area to area.
At MacRumors, Sprint is definitely the whipping boy around here, very "uncool" or whatever, since AT&T users can brag that they have the fastest or have had the most iPhones, and Verizon lovers can talk up their network or huge LTE footprint. It's just uncool to mention Sprint's unlimited data or more reasonable pricing, so you have to expect people to chime in and say disparaging things. Well, kids, Sprint is great for me, and I don't care what you think of 'em!
Plus, customers have all kinds of crazy stupid reasons to change or keep their cell phone company, like they're mad about billing or a rude CSR or the "principle" of the AT&T FaceTime thing (even though by switching to Verizon they're having to go to the same plan or one slightly more expensive than the plan that AT&T wants them to change to in order to use FaceTime... defeating their entire point of complaint if they'd just go to the FaceTime-inclusive pooled data plan).
you could also just pay the early upgrade device fee and stay on AT&T, I think is just $100 more than regular subsidized price
Rogers... Unlocked version. (Well, all Canadian iPhone's are unlocked when bought at full price)
I am also in college I don't need extra expenses
However, if they try to mess with my unlimited data plan... I'm jumping ship to Verizon again. They have a faster LTE network anyways.
Because AT&T is perfectly fine for some of us?
They offer the best balance of price and coverage in my area.
Plus, I never use FaceTime anyway so I don't really care about that.
Honestly! A carrier? I put mine in my pocket.
I'm coming from T-mobile and for the past 3 years was hoping it would actually come and now I am done waiting!! Was thinking between Verizon vs ATT but what the heck, I'll dish out the extra $20 Verizon and get the good service and LTE here in PHX!
