    Sprint knows it too, which is why they offer things like cheaper plans and unlimited data to attract customers.
    Yeah but Sprint's CDMA network doesn't hold a candle to AT&T's superior GSM/HSPA+ network. I'd take 2GB of data anyday with fast speeds versus spees that cannot even reach 1Mbps down on Sprint. Oh and just to reassure anyone who thinks I'm just making that up for the sake of arguement, I am not. I had Sprint this past summer when the Evo 3D came out and it was aboslutely horrible. Their coverage map says I was in a "Good" coverage area, yet I was always roaming. Getting 1Mbps is pretty good on Sprint but rarely happened. I am not a fan of CDMA technology as you can't do data and voice simultaneously.

    I did successfully get the AT&T $30 unlimited plan today but I'm not gonna discuss how as I already foolsihly did lol. I hope I can keep it for the life of my contract and I won't change anything including phones lol. I know someday it will be gone for good.

    Hmmm.. from your other post you said that you own both AT&T and Verizon money.. no wonder they want a security deposit... just settle your depts with these companies and move on.. or continue to suffer... I guess they just want their money as well.

    No, you just have crappy credit at one of the agencies we checked, there are three. You also may have a very short credit history, not enough to gauge worthiness. I dont have the best credit and I have no deposit with AT&T.

    I've been with Verizon for years and remained 'grand fathered' in with an unlimited data plan.

    That's the main reason I have stayed with them, cause AT&T will not it give it up and if I come back to VWZ, they won't give it back.

    that faster speeds isn't 3G it's HSPA+/4G.....and the only reason I bash AT&T is because I tried getting an iPhone 4S with them recently and my security deposit was $700 with decent credit and it was even $700 even with no credit
    At&t's 3G has still been shown to be faster than Verizon or Sprint.
    Even with the 4 (vs Verizon anyways, i dont know if anyone has done speed tests on Sprint yet)
    Of course Verizon gets more coverage enabling faster data across more of the globe.

    The big companies usually are pretty picky.
    Sorry for your experience.

    The reason I won't go with AT&T is because they want $700 out of me to sign up even though my credit score is 600 and I won't go with Verizon because they wouldn't refund $500 worth of charges someone made on my phone after it was lost because I didn't have insurance

    The fact that AT&T wants a deposit from you based on your credit score in no way makes them a bad carrier. It is simply their way of making sure that they don't get screwed in the process of offering you service. You already said you owe Verizon money. If you felt that strongly about not owing them the money due to fraudulent charges to your account, you really should have fought them on it rather than leaving and not addressing it. As a huge company Verizon has to do something about the $500 that is owed to them, if they don't get paid within a certain period of time, they'll turn your account over to a collection agency, which is what brings your credit score down.

    I'm in the process of switching from unlimited data on T-Mobile to AT&T for the iPhone 4s. I have both services at the moment (trying the iPhone out). I've been hesitant to leave TMo due the unlimited and the $10/month family text messaging plan but my husband desperately wants an iPhone. I had no problem with the credit check - but for some reason, my order was screwed up from day one. I now have all three phones that were ordered.
    I would love to have unlimited data on our iPhones, but I just don't see that happening.

    Your score must have been higher than hers, which could explain why.

    Anything is possible my friend. The plan is STILL IN THEIR SYSTEM after a year and a half later. PM me for details if interested.

    Sorry that you had a bad experience with getting service with AT&T. Unfortunately there are only two wireless carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile) here in the US that don't have stringent security checks with high deposits. Verizon and AT&T can be pricey for those that have a poor security rating.
    Actually, before Verizon got the iPhone, AT&T asked me for a $750 deposit. I was able to sign up with Verizon with no deposit. 6 months later when Verizon did release the iPhone 4 they let me upgrade and get the iPhone. No deposit, unlimited data, early upgrade, service everywhere I go. I don't know why so many people hate on VZW. I'd pick Verizon over AT&T any day. Red is my new favorite color!
