    thumbs up if you were tired of getting .1mbps down and .05 up and you were tired of crappy coverage and fake 4g and crappy android phones that glitches and never worked and would never get data and burned ur legs (talking eve 4g)

    then decided that u wanted iPhones for ur family members so they had phones that worked and had data that wouldn't be data off (taking epic 4g)

    but they wouldn't give it to premier customers that had been there for over 17 years and now they are taking that away for good, iPhones that u trust will work because they are apple because they won't give upgrades

    so i switched to att and love my ultra fast data compared to sprint and i am noit at 25% of data and my data cap ends on wedsnesday and starts over

    and am never looking back (y)

    Fake 4G instead of the real actual 4G? Nobody in the US has real 4G.

    I have no data issues here. infact, being this is an iPhone forum, I could care less about what android does or does not do on Sprint as far as 4G. I have had the evo4g in the past, was a nice phone, very fast in my area, but android is too buggy for me.

    Sprint has failed to let me down. I have 3 lines that include unlimited data and messaging. I pay an average of $42.00 a line. No where else comes close to that. That includes sharing 1500 mins and unlimited calls to any mobile any carrier. Plus, where I am, service is awesome.

    To each their own though.

    Excuse the ignorance, but isn't the Verizon LTE 4G "real" 4G?

    No.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3GPP_Long_Term_Evolution

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4g#LTE_Advanced

    The current 4G that Verizon and the others advertise get you 100Mb/s down, 50Mb up. True LTE is 1Gb down, 500Mb up... What everyone is falling for is the marketing buzz around LTE and the telcos pressuring the consortiums to accept their current speeds as 4G. But they truly aren't.

    Wow, I would be more than happy with 10-15Mb/s down and 5 Up:D
    Never mind 1GB down for a phone.

    Be careful with your data usage, assuming you're not an unlimited plan because you just switched to AT&T. Either AT&T or some setting on the iPhone iOS 5 on GSM is creating some major data issues. There's about a hundred threads about how people with typical usage of 200 MB for the month going through that in a day's time. Something's not stirring the kool-aid here.

    Agreed, I think I'm getting old or I'm out of touch because I have no idea what (y) or (n) mean

    I don't know either, but judging by the thread title I'll take a shot in the dark and guess its the thumbs up (y) and thumbs down (n) emoticons.

    (y) = thumbs up
    (n) = thumbs down

    on MSN messenger. It turns into a picture of a thumbs up/down as with other smileys.

    I have at&t and I pay an average of $40 per cell phone. 1400 mins, unlimited cell to cell, unlimited text messages, unlimited data and faster data also than Sprint (on the iPhone, not 4G). So yes, someone can come close to $42 a line.

    Very nice. That's not offered in my area. In my area Sprint and Verizon are the big dogs as far as quality of calls, and Verizon costs triple what Sprint does. At&t has bad service by me (and is ranked as slower on the 4s by testing done, i think it was by cnet, but could be wrong). Good you have the best deal for your area. Can I ask how many lines you have?

    I actually left AT&T for Sprint, because there was no AT&T service in my house. Here is what I got on a speedtest right now:

    That's great and all, but useless if I can't get any service where I live or work.
