New Phone Help Me Decide!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
well my parents are willing to switch to any company or stay on current one (sprint) and currently my and my father have evo 4G's and we're in the market for something better my mother has a rumor 2 but its not really for her as she doesnt really care about the most "up to date" things. i was looking at the droids and i heard about the galaxy 2 being a tank. any recommendations? no iphones please really despise them as its way too easy to break plus i personally despise apple suggestions?!smile.gif

Depends on MANY factors whether a carrier switch is right for you

You guys ARE getting the HTC EVO 4G LTE shortly, That thing looks to be one heck of a smartphone and if you stay with sprint, I'd wait for that to come out as opposed to rushing, Theres nothing in Sprints lineup that touches it right now except the Galaxy Nexus... What area are you in? Are you slated to get LTE soon? if you already have 4G on Sprint keep in mind you could be down on the list to get the LTE network in your area, So you might get stuck with Sprint's not-so-fantastic 3G coverage...

The Galaxy S3 is about to be announced, the S2 is a little long in the tooth, though its a good phone, But i would wait the 2 weeks to hear the S3 announcement, what carriers are getting it first, and what it brings to the table before nabbing the S2

Switching comes down to money and what you get for it, Sprint has unlimited data, as does T-Mobile, ATT and Verizon are tiered plans with limits and overage charges, Your parents might not like that idea as much, Although right now Verizon is doing double data for all LTE phones (so you get 4gb for $30) so that might be a consideration

Overall, i wouldnt switch carriers UNLESS ATT or Verizon have 4G LTE in your area NOW, Simply not worth the possible hassles (Unless theres stuff Sprints not doing well for your parents, like poor coverage and that)

our problem with sprint is i do have 4g but ican never pick it up. and we roam .. ALOT while im at school, at my grandmas, or even at home i lose a lot of signal and its always swapping between 5 bars and 1-3bars and our phone bill is a large problem as well as its 255 a month for 3 phones and we were paying a lot lower before.
