    Since the iPhone 4S is now available on more carriers than any other iPhone, I'm curious as to find out what carriers everyone else uses?

    I'm on Verizon. Always have been, probably always will be.

    Since I have an unlocked iphone 4S, when in U.S, I use AT&T, when I'm in South Korea, I use Olleh (KTF) (pre-paid as I don't have a Korean ID and they won't open a line of service if you don't have one).

    iPhone 4S on 3 (UK's) One Plan.

    £25 ($40?) for:

    • 2000 any network, anytime minutes.
    • Truly Unlimited Data (with Tethering included).
    • Unlimited Texts.
    • 5000 3 to 3 minutes.

    Unbeatable deal IMO.

    T-Mobile USA, I have been with them since I was 14 years old, and I am now 22. Coverage hasn't ever been an issue for me, but EDGE is getting really long in the tooth (thankfully TMO is fixing that by the end of this year). I always buy my phones outright anyway (Just like my iP4 I am using now), so whether T-Mobile "officially" carrying the iPhone is meh to me. I plan to buy the iP5 outright as soon as it comes out to continue using it on T-Mobile.

    The reason? Nobody has yet to beat my plan:

    -Unlimited Minutes
    -Unlimited Data
    -Unlimited Text Messages
    -On 4 iPhones for a price of $162

    I have had official iPhones on AT&T and VZW as well, as secondary lines (because I was craving 3G) but it was not worth me spending the money. Nothing wrong with either AT&T or VZW, just didn't want to keep spending money I didn't need to spend. Also didn't notice any coverage gains with either of those carriers, then again, I don't travel to rural areas quite often enough.

    Never tried Sprint yet however.

    I'm on 3 (UK):
    - 500 anytime, any network minutes
    - 5000 texts
    - 5000 3 to 3 minutes
    - 1GB data

    Sounds great.. except their reception is very poor in my area and it costs £35 a month and I had to pay £240 upfront (I have the 32GB iPhone 4). Now I am broke ;)

    Same.

    Was on Tesco before, signal was better but 3 offer more bang for your buck I.e unlimited data + tethering!

    Amaysim in Australia.

    Not an official iPhone carrier but it works and is the cheapest in Australia.

    I currently use Sprint and I love it. I used to have a 3GS unlocked on T-Mobile and just couldn't stand it anymore. Not only because I couldn't get 3G speeds but also because the support wasn't a great seeing as I didn't have a "supported" phone through T-Mobile.

    I have a great plan too: 450 anytime minutes including unlimited nights/weekends plus Sprint-to-Sprint, unlimited text, and unlimited data for $60.

    I've been a Verizon customer since before the merger in 4/2000 that formed the company now known as Verizon. The part I was with was Bell Atlantic Mobile.

    I had always had good service and a good experience. Coverage remains fantastic. Within the past few years, however, their customer service has really taken a nosedive. At least in my experiences.

    One of their old tag lines when you were on hold used to be something like - if you have a problem, it's now our problem and we'll do everything we can to fix it.

    It used to actually feel that way too. Now it feels like - if you have a problem, tough sh*@

    As of now it looks like a lot of people have stuck with AT&T.

    I'm strongly curious as to who on this site uses the Regional US carriers that support the iPhone and how well that's working out for them!

    With Alaska Communications aka ACS. AT&T & GCI suck up here. And we don't have Verizon here yet. Verizon is coming to Alaska, rumor is by the end of this year. ACS is the way to go for state wide.

    Little detail. It is "Alaska Communications", not "Alaskan Communications" as listed.:)

    Sorry about the typo.

    I didn't realize Verizon isn't in Alaska. Also, is Alaska Communications CDMA or GSM?
