Each company has their perks.

Verizon: Best in the US, largest 3G network, & 5/10 favs.

AT&T: Best Worldwide, fastest 3G network, roll over mins, iPhone, & Blackberry Bold.

Sprint: Best in places larger companies don't have coverage, Simply Everything plan, cheaper price plans, & Palm Pre.

T-Mobile: Not worth talking about.

My only problem with verizon is their lack of phones. And the way they feel cheap in my hand.

Regardless who you go with one thing to consider is if you can get a discount for your personal phone based on who you are employed by. Even though I was getting a personal phone I was able to get a discount on goods and services based on the complany that I was employed by. I think I get a 15 or 16 percent discount from Verizon. I work for a larger company so if you work for a small company you might not get a discount.

Personally I would think about AT&T for the IPhone if the mobil service was better in my area.

My wife & I both have Sprint as company phones so I have my son on a personal Sprint account.

Sprint around here sucks. Your phone won't ring but all the sudden you get a voice mail alert. Sometimes it takes texts/picture mail hours to go through. If it wasn't free I wouldn't use them.

I have VZW. I have been with them for 4 years. In the woods of N. AZ, I always had cell phone phone service whereas my friends (w/ others carriers) had none.

Currently, I get free mobile to mobile w/ current Alltel customers.

I have been with verizon for almost 5 years and have never had a problem. If you are military they will give you a 15% discount so that helps make the competitive with the cheaper brands. I travel pretty extesively within the US and I have never pulled out my phone and not been able to make a call, and have never had a call drop. Just my $0.02...

i started with Suncom...then went to alltell...then switched to sprint...and then to verizon...had verizon for 4-5 years...switched to at&t and ive been with them for 3 years now

alltell didnt have the coverage i needed...sprint was ok...but i lost coverage at school (i went to school in a very small town)

verizon had coverage there and overall was a good SP...but their CS sucked balls...im not hard on phones...but anytime i had a problem then it was a major PITA to get it dealt with

AT&T so far has been awesome...its had a handful of dropped calls but nothing that the other carriers havent had for me

oh and i also have nextel currently too...and im happy with that as well...

i get a discount on both of my plans because of my employer
