Check out the carrier forums for each carrier - http://forums.tipb.com/carrier-help-discussion-forum/
And which carrier is right for you always varies depending on the service you get in your area. That should be the main reason to choose a carrier.

Sprint is actually around the same price as AT&T, and if you get AT&T's cheapest options, then it will be much cheaper than Sprint. Sprint is good, but there are a couple sacrifices. On Sprint you cannot talk on the phone and use data at the same time. You may be saying that you'd never do that, but you'd be surprised. Also Sprint is FAAARRRR slower than AT&T. AT&T's iPhone 4S is 4G, Sprint's uses the old CDMA network from the 90's so Sprints download speeds are around .16 when AT&T's are around 3.25 - AT&T is much faster.

I've been with AT&T for the past few years. Prior to getting an iPhone I was with Sprint for almost 10 years. I am much happier with AT&T due to their customer service as Sprint's was positively the worst!! If you go with Sprint and have any kind of problem, good luck getting it resolved. Unless things have changed over there since I left, their reps are complete morons. When I call AT&T customer service, I always feel like I'm speaking with a professional. Just my two cents worth.
