    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!
    Can we get back on topic please? Thanks

    I thought the topic was solved! Anyways, back on Topic, if you threaten to cancel your service enough, most carriers will give you what you want to stay. Just ask to speak to account services because you aren't happy with their service. May take a few tries, but it is possible.

    I can see them doing that if you'd been a loyal customer for half way through your contract but not for new customers. Especially ones still within their 30 days.

    And yes, my original topic was resolved. The AT&T $30/mo unlimited plan IS STILL AVAILABLE.

    But HOW is it available? It's not on the site unless you mean the iPhone, the original one, trick.

    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.
    I will. I'm only 3 more posts away from being able to PM :P I definitely will.

    I did the "original iPhone" loophole trick. That was about 9 months ago and they haven't taken it away. Its a legitimate loophole. Until they do away with the unlimited plan for the original iPhone, I believe it will be a viable way for people to get unlimited plans (or get it back after giving it up, like I did). I don't think there is anything dishonest or sneaky about using a loophole they have left open. I just borrowed one from a friend, put my sim card in (via sim adapter from amazon), and activated it in iTunes. Then I chose the $20 unlimited plan. I left my sim card in the phone overnight and the next day switched my sim back into my iPhone 4. I received a text a few hours later saying the $20 unlimited plan was incompatible with my device so they were switching me to the $30 unlimited plan. I had my friends original iPhone returned to him within 24 hours.

    the problem with Verizon and Sprint being the top 2 networks is even if you had. an unlimited data plan after 2GB the speeds go slower and it's unfortunately due to all the people using their smartphones on 3G and 4G and also they forget to free up their bandwidth.......that's why I love Sprint cuz I could be in the middle of nowhere and have 3G speeds at 3.1 mbps always sometimes higher(I sometimes roam on EVDO Rev. B)

    actually sprint isn't horrible.....why do people stuffff about them and have never tried their service? and no you won't need an iPhone 2G.....actually most of the time Sprint 3G is faster than Verizon's especially in California and New York and with EVDO Advanced coming out next year with Sprint the speeds will be 14.4 mbps way faster than Verizon

    Yea, but that won't help iPhone 4 or 4s users on Sprint since the 4 and 4s only support EVDO Rev A. Once again, CDMA technology is inferior to GSM technology. Like simultaneous voice and data, and HSPA+ and LTE working together.

    Why are you still arguing that your Sprint iPhone is better? Sprint sucks. It is for people with bad credit, like yourself, that can't qualify for service at a higher quality carrier.

    Exactly. Which is the why the technology is superior to AT&T's. Verizon's CDMA is much better because its fully optimized and managed correctly. This renders higher costs but notice how people aren't complaining of the 3G speeds on Verizon. Yes, they have unlimited data but as I said before, what's the point if its slow crappy speeds <1Mbps?

    Verizon's iPhone 4&4S speeds are the same as Sprint's because EVDO Rev. A has a maximum speed of 3.1 mbps but Sprint is stepping up and about to have faster 3G than Verizon with EVDO Advanced @ 14.4 mbps and Sprint' LTE @ 100mbps will be faster than anyones and faster than any broadband connection ....anywho think what you want but not everyone is rich and can afford to pay $150-200/mo for AT&T and Verizon on single line.....I have always had coverage issues, customer service idiots, and dropped calls or calls that just sit there and apparently I should have excellent coverage in my area with them but I don't I know cuz my family has it....Sprint has better coverage in my area y family says when they have their phone on automatic it roams on Sprint a lot

    AT&T would be about $100 a month with tax. Yet another reason you're on Sprint........inability to objectivly compare real world scenarios.

    you are wrong there AT&T: $69.99(Unlimited Calling)+$20 Unlimited Messaging+$30 2 GB Data+$8 Apple Care=$127.99 before taxes, $140.78 after taxes and Sprint: $79.99 450 landline mins, unlimited messaging, unlimited any mobile any time, unlimited data+$8 Apple Care=$87.99 before taxes and $96.78 after taxes.....almost $50 saved with Sprint....I am not trying bash AT&T or Verizon I am just stating the price comparison plus CDMA has a better output thru buildings and needs less towers plus it can operate from a farther distance and still get great coverage......Sprint is not for people with bad credit either

    What confuses me is that you posted somewhere else that you tried to get AT&T before you went to sprint, but they wanted $700 from you do you didnt get service thru them. So if sprint is better, why did you try to get service thru AT&T?

    Found the quote

    well I owe Verizon money and AT&T charges a $700 deposit for new customers I tried already
