    Maybe I'm late to this, but i was just reading an article on 9to5mac that Verizon will require anyone with a grandfathered data plan to pay FULL Price for the iPhone 5. At&T is still offering the same subsidized rate with 2yr contract but Verizon is not. WTF???

    Looks like they're about to lose a customer.

    Lose a customer to go where? Sprint, because that is the only way your getting unlimited data. AT&T throttles LTE at 5gb whereas VZW does not throttle LTE yet.

    Happens to the best of us! I'm on AT&T so I'm good for another year but I kind of feel like AT&T will eventually follow suit.

    But only the 4 and 4s is compatible with t-mobile towards the end of the year according to a t-mobile rep that talked to cnet.

    I wouldn't leave vzw's unlimited LTE for unlimited 3g+

    Will TMO have nano sims right away? My understanding is the nano sim can't (easily) be cut "fabricated" from a micro sim like a micro sim could from a standard sim.

    According to reports on the interwebs, yes. They'll have a sizeable batch in October, and that's when I'll be taking my AT&T money to them.
