Just to clarify for t mobile users. Their data is not really unlimited. My friend has them and the have tiers of throttling of the 4G. They will throttle your speeds down to 3G once you break a certain amount of usage. No different than VZW IMO.

Also, no matter the carrier best phones are Android=S4. apple=iphone 5, Windows=No one cares. biggrin.gif

It's excellent for a phone. Low-light performance is very good aswell, if you use the night-shot mode (I will post a comparison from my S3 soon, it really makes a world of difference).

She loses signal when she walks into her garage, and nothing in the house at all where I have full 4g. I'll never be an AT&T customer again.

I think I'm gonna be looking into the S4. I can still be grandfathered into my old plan at VZW, so I'm pretty happy with it.

Why do I hate Verizon:

#1. If you upgrade with a new phone you will LOSE your unlimited data if you have it...Only way to keep it is by paying full price for the phone...
#2. To much per gb of data cost
#3. The bloatware they install is insane
#4. The bloatware they install is hardly functional
#5. The 2 phones I had (my wife's and I) under unlimited plans ran 150 bucks a month and that was with my 20% discount that I got for being a Caterpillar employee.
#6. Lack of Nexus Devices...(I know now I have a S4..but I upgraded from a Galaxy Nexus and now my wife has a Nexus 4)
#7. Plain refusal to support a modding community with locked bootloaders.

Would you like me to continue??????

Yes tmoble throttles data...for my plan its after 5gb...soooooo thats plenty...for their unlimited everything plan, they dont throttle at all....

I have heard rumours of samsung announcing the Galaxy Note 3 on june 20. Definetly what I am waiting for to upgrade to from my absolutely destroyed Evo 3D. (I may have dropped it off of a catwalk at the top of an auditorium.... rolleyes.gif)

Also, supposedly HTC is making a 'phablet' version of their HTC one to compete with the note 3, not to mention theres also supposedly a google edition htc one with stock android in the works as well. You will have plenty of choices! At this day in age.... you really can't go wrong with any of them thumb.gif

Actually they do......there is no such thing as unlimited data anymore for 4G anyway. Google for a sec and you will find out they got busted throttling their unlimited customers down to 3G speeds.

Also, I agree VZW sucks but canceling your unlimited data, because you gotta buy a phone off of ebay, sounds dumb. I dislike them, but they the only ones that currently have 4G in my area so I went with them. I will probably jump ship if t mobile gets up here, and stops the throttling junk.

ALSO, ABSOLUTELY NO COMPANY OPENLY SUPPORTS MODDING COMMUNITY.

Did they change their policy? AFAIK, if you had unlimited data before they changed everything, you get grandfathered in.

Some more than others though...Also they take FOREVER to get updates rolled out...Tmobile advertises the amount you can use before they throttle...But again I get 5gb before they throttle and that is plenty for me...and the 30 dollars a month price tag is where its at...I have pretty decent 4G coverage in my area so I went for it...Most of the time i am connected to wi-fi anyways...

They sure did...Or I prolly wouldn't have changed...but I use 3-4 gb a month plus what my wife uses...we would have needed to get their 6 or 8gb plan to be safe and out plan would have went to around 180-200 a month...

But you are right...they used to...but then they took that away and now its if you buy under a new 2 year agreement to get the discount...then you have to sign up for a new share everything plan...Pay full price and you can keep your unlimited data...
