    ok so i have been with tmobile for quiet a few years now and im ending my contract soon. i am not sure if i should re-sign the contract and stay with them or should i switch to att. The prices of the plans i want are pretty much the same. Im not too happy with Tmobile's network issues and call drops. I am looking into getting 2 phones not sure which one i want.

    Iphone 4s Vs Galaxy s3 ... ATT carries both and will only be 200 per phone where tmobile only carries galaxy s3 and wants 250 for the phone. I need some help and feedback from you guys

    I'd take a Galaxy S3 over an iphone 4s. Much faster.

    AT&T's LTE network is supposed to be very fast but make sure it's in your area before deciding. If you can wait, I'd wait for the iPhone 5 to come out. It'll be a more fair comparison. It's expected to be out in September.

    I've read that Verizon has 4G LTE in your area so don't overlook them as well.

    Use anyone but AT&T. Worst carrier I've ever had.

    And don't take my word for it:

    They also split it up by 20 or so different metropolitan areas, and AT&T was last in every single one. I can take a picture of the page from consumer report when I get home if folks like.

    It's really an incredible feat to be that horrible of a company.

    That's what I used to say (emphasis on "here") before I moved a few times. I've come to realize that they have the worst coverage just about anywhere you go.

    At my last house I didn't get any signal at all. And at my new house, I get service at least, but the 3g is about half as slow as my wife's verizon. Hell, at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, you can't even make a phone call with AT&T.

    I have this recurring nightmare where I drive 5 miles outside of town here and need to call an ambulance, and I die instead, because of AT&T. :laugh:

    That one is actually old. There's a newer one on Consumer Reports' site and even that one dates back almost a year (sept 2011). They still rank last but there's not as much black. I've been with them for almost 2 years now and haven't had any issues with them.

    My wife works for the company as a service/sales rep.

    Wasn't sure if that was the old one or new one. It's the only one I could find in a google image search.
