Some friends and I are looking at getting a smartphone plan and were debating between carriers. They all want iPhone's I'm planning on getting an HTC One X or EVO 4G LTE (basically the same phone). The question I have is, is Sprint's data as bad as everyone is saying? And if Sprint's data is so terrible and at&t's is so good by comparison (especially for the iPhone compared to other carriers) why are they getting such terrible customer satisfaction reviews? Sprint Benefits: Sprint is significantly cheaper than at&t about 40 bucks a month cheaper (10 bucks per person). Unlimited data No activation fees saves each of us almost 40 bucks Plus we'll have more anytime minutes, though considering free mobile to mobile calling i doubt we'll really need the extra minutes. Sprint Cons: No LTE any time in the near future, really only a con for me but still worth mentioning at&t already claims to have LTE coverage in my area. Sprint isn't even predicting when coverage will reach my area. Then of course the widely talked about data issues... As things stand I'm think I'd be willing to go with at&t if they'll waive the activation fee. But I'd be interested to hear what current user feeling is on the difference between the two companies.
