    Assuming all of this isn't pure utter speculation, I'll still stick with AT&T.

    Then again, I'm happy with my iPhone 4.

    I'll probably just stick with AT&T. Too many cancellation fees to deal with to by trying to switch to be honest.

    Verizon. Without a doubt. I've had them all and get the best service in my area with vzw

    No matter who you choose. Isn't it great to have a choice.

    I would prefer T-Mobile due to their better and more down-to-Earth Plans, but their 3G service is not compatible with the iPhone 5 (different frequency); only EDGE works with the current iPhones. (Apple, please support T-Mobile's 3G!!!).

    I would only choose AT&T because they are the only ones carrying it in GSM. But their plans are ripoffs.

    Wouldn't choose Verizon because they only support CDMA, and never Sprint as their customer service is terrible.

    I'll stick with AT&T. Service and support hasn't been bad and signal strength is no better or worse then their competitors.

    I prefer GSM as the sim card gives me flexibility, so I'd avoid going back to vzw for that reason

    Sadly, I'm stuck with AT&T, mostly due to the unlimited data plan I have. If they have better cell reception in Orange County, I'd be happy to stay with them. In SF, where I'm going to college, their cell reception is great.

    Do you work for Apple? How do you know what frequencies are supported by iPhone 5?

    Despite no one knowing for sure, its already been basically confirmed that the iphone 5 cell chip will support Tmobile 3G frequencies. It was rumored as recently as 20 minutes ago on the Macrumors front page.

    At&t

    AT&T. I have been with them for close to 7 years now. Decent coverage. Unlimited Data. 20% off my bill through my workplace. No incentive to jump ship.

    Sticking with AT&T since I have the unlimited data plan, it has better coverage for the places that I go/frequent.

    I'm taking a 'wait and see' attitude.

    I'm currently with AT&T (originally with CellularOne -> Cingular -> AT&T), using a non-smartphone, have unlimited data, and manage to use more then 2GB a month (I'm rarely around WiFi). I've been exploring my options between AT&T and Verizon and hope to get an iPhone5 when they're released, but with these new developments, I couldn't be happier.

    Yesterday's Sprint news (and their current low-cost unlimited plans) definitely had me leaning that way, but if the T-Mobile news turns out to be true, I'd expect big changes with all 4 carriers.... hopefully with them bringing down their prices/ offering unlimited data to be competitive instead of the usual- all raising their prices/ limiting services to match one another.

    ATT is superb where I live, so I'm going to stay with the dark side.:cool:
    Edit: I travel throughout Texas and other states, and I've had great reception as well.

    Sticking with AT&T. I don't want to lose my unlimited data plan. And the fact that I can get 2 year pricing everytime a new iPhone comes out is nice. We have 3 lines on this family plan, 2 of the 3 are ready for upgrades and my sister doesn't even care about getting a new phone so win-win for me.

    I just signed a two year contract with Verizon after ditching AT&T, so I will be sticking with them since I have no real reason to switch at this point.
