    Sprint has unlimited data, Verizon does too. But..., you have to pay the FULL price of the phone, I have an iPhone 5 I paid about $800 for it just to get unlimited data. Anyways, sprint is slow in 3G and a little bit fast in LTE, but in my opinion Verizon is faster in 3G and LTE, on my iPhone I get speeds on 3G the highest ive ever gotten was 29mbps, and on LTE about 45Mbps, and on sprint on my iPhone 4S on 3G the highest 2mbps. So you should go with Verizon

    Verizon is a good network, but I would stick with Sprint if I was you. You'd be saving yourself money by not switching to Verizon.

    Saving money won't mean a thing if the service sucks, but if Sprint service is great in the OP's area then I agree with you. Verizon works best for me and have been in all areas I've been associated with so I'm sticking with it.

    Sprint is not the logical choice. Been there done that.

    While the infamous unlimited data on Sprint remains a hot topic of this debate, they do in fact slow you down after 2GB. With Verizon, you can pick a data package to accommodate your usage. I used to always tell my customers, "we will be the first to say, Verizon is not the cheapest, but we take care of our customers and you certainly get what you pay for." I would say that because it's true, Verizon has it all from customer service (from what I've experienced, even outside of working for them), to cellular service, to products, technical support, etc. Everything the other providers lack, Verizon makes up for it indefinitely.

    Verizon has unlimited data IF and only IF you've had unlimited data. There is nothing you can do as a new customer to get unlimited data, unless you happen to know Mr. Mead himself lol. But yes if you are an existing customer and you have unlimited then you must either purchase the device retail, or use another lines upgrade that does not have unlimited.

    No way, Verizon has unlimited data, how when where? "Do you have proof of that?"

    I'm an existing customer, over 10 years. I purchased my iPhone 5 for over$800 just to keep my unlimited data.

    I am a VZ customer who gave up unltd data in September. My options were to go share everything or pay retail price for my phones. With a 20gb plan and discounts, we have no overage issues.

    Whichever best suits YOUR needs, is the phone that you should buy. Keep all receipts, boxes, etc and resell privately at market rate if you change your mind later. I have done it for years. Matter of fact my (at the time) 6mth old blackberry bold paid for my first iPhone, the 4s. It can be done. Much luck to you. And let us know what you decide.

    Just the one unless you need another for a tablet. That way, if something goes wring with your phone (or you want a newer new one), you can add the line at contract rate and swap the upgrades back and forth without affecting your plan.

    Haven't even held the Z10. My guess is different virtual keyboards, ecosystems, and app availability/access. Honestly I jumped from a bb with a keyboard straight onto an apple device. It wasn't so hard as I thought it would be. Def do your research and spend some time playing with both.

    I would get the i5 on vz. Here's why: if you get it and don't like it as much, then you can resell it for at least 500.00 on ebay/cl, which will cover the off contract price of the z10. If you do that in reverse, you may take a hit trying to resell the bb.
