    Well where ever you decide to go, make sure the other service works well. You could always get a new line to test out and if it does, then port your number over.

    Default Should I stay with Sprint or Switch with Verizon Wireless

    I had sprint it was ok ( work phone ) personally I have Verizon .. I hate droids just personal preference I have had a iphone on Verizon since they got them .. No issues with Verizon service in years ( customer of 10 plus years )

    Look where you live make sure Verizon has LTE or look into att

    I personally had bad service issues with att and never any issue with Verizon that's why I won't change

    Att LTE seems to be faster than Verizon but honestly both are faster than most home wifi connections so you really can't go wrong

    Look at coverage where you live but more than likely Verizon has you covered but check LTE coverage also

    Verizon does have a trade-in program. Verizon only has the Share Everything Plan-check it out before you make any choices. good luck.....

    You will also have the 14 day period that you can stop using the service. Also a friend of mine went to the note 2 and loves it. He use to use a iPhone 4 before. I can tell you LTE is nice if its in your area. Make sure Verizon has good service where you live AT&T might be better? For me Verizon is the best not because of the phones they have but because of the service. I have ranged from 14 all the way to 50 MBPS down in my area with Verizon.

    The majority of the time, Verizon is going to provide better coverage and speeds than Sprint. Verizon has more spectrum. And Verizon has more customers, which means they have more money to spend on the network. I've been on Sprint's LTE and it is nothing to get excited about. I consistently get over 25Mbps on Verizon LTE. I travel a lot for work, and I see these speeds all over the country.

    And for your phone, get whatever feels better to you. Personally I have an iPhone 5 and a HTC Droid DNA. I can't pick between Android and iOS, so I have both

    Why do you say Verizon is better than Sprint? It's all based on location location location. I don't have LTE where I live now on Sprint, but other than that, Sprint is very comparable to Verizon in my area. Where I used to live, Sprint and even T-Mobile got better reception than Verizon and AT&T. I say stick with Sprint and save the $$$. But that's just me.

    Tbh T-Mobile does not have 4G LTE and Sprint sucks because I don't like the service and I believe Verizon is good for me.

    Although I am with AT&T I would suggest going to big red. The coverage is the best however you will pay a pretty penny for their service and lose your unlimited data. I am in jersey and my coverage with Sprint was spotty where I live so I had to switch. I would suggest a trial run with Verizon before cutting ties with Sprint, check out the coverage in your area and see if the plans they have available will fit your budget.

    Eh, depends on how you use the phone and which Android phone you are talking about. I can kill a battery pretty quick on either of my devices if I use them a lot. If you go with a Note II they have a pretty big capacity battery and will last a couple days under normal use.

    Eh, I disagree that Sprint is cheaper. If its trully unlimited data. But in my case their network was so poor that the most data I could pull from them in a given month was 200MB. Considering with Verizon I have used almost 6GB this month with 4 days left on my billing cycle, AND my bill is roughly about the same dollar amount, I'd say I'm getting much better value from Verizon.

    I agree with you Jason, Verizon is better than Sprint even tho I've been with Sprint since 2006

    It all depends but I don't have to share data with my fam and I pay $130 month for 4 lines at one point when I thinking of considering Verizon but for 4 lines they wanted almost $200 month and I have to share data

    Verizon has an awesome referral program. I'd be happy to refer you and we'd both make some $$. Send me a PM if you want me to refer you

    When I was with Sprint I could never trust my bill to be correct. Especially after I upgraded to a new phone. The first bill was never what I was told it would be. After that it was all over the map. Got to the point I would only communicate with CS via email so I would have a trail of the communications.

    Since switching to VZ my first bill and all that have followed have always been within pennies of what I was told when I bought my iPhones.

    But others have no problem with Sprint.

    Good Luck
