    That depends on which has the best coverage in your area. As far as pricing almost all are similar. Sprint is currently the only one still offering unlimited data. Next year supposedly tmobile might get the iphone5 and they offer unlimited now as well.

    You probably should decide that for yourself. Everyone has different priorities when it comes to service. Have to consider price, coverage, network speed IN YOUR AREA and determine what's important to you. I've had all 4 of the major carriers and didn't have any real problems but they were all strong in different areas. The choice is yours. You can always take a test drive for them.

    What carrier are you currently with, if any? If you do currently have a carrier ad it is not T-mobile, are you not satisfied with your current service? Also, as others have stated, who provides the best coverage in your area especially at your home and place of business? These are things you need to consider before making your purchase. Each carrier has its pros and cons so which is best will come down to coverage in your area.

    I hate a Sprint iPhone 5. Couldn't enjoy the LTE since it wasn't in my area. Ending up getting the iPhone with Verizon. Although I don't have unlimited anymore, I do get great data speeds with LTE in my area. Unlimited data really didn't matter to me with Sprint anymore as I never used anywhere near a gig of data in any given month.

    A friend has the iPhone 5 with AT&T. The one thing I envy is that he can talk and surf simultaneously.

    Dude, if you're already questioning whether or not 10 GBs will be enough, I'd have to guess that it will not be. Seriously, 10 gigs on a single plan should be way more than enough especially if you spend any time connected to Wi-Fi.

    Well I'm new to all this. I had sprint about four years ago when they had the unlimted plan . But what I'm getting at is I never had a lint plan before. Right now I have metro which really sucks.

    I understand. Before LTE, many people found the 2 gig plan sufficient, especially if you're on Wi-Fi while at home. Now that the iPhone 5 has LTE capabilities AND the fact that LTE is faster than Wi-Fi, people tend to want to use it all the time and forgo Wi-Fi when at home which leads to more data consumption. If you're disciplined enough, a 4 gig plan *should* suffice, but I don't know you or your smartphone usage habits. You can also go over your old bills and see what your average monthly usage was/is to help you determine which data plan is practical and economical for you.

    Thank you justme for the help even though I don't have widow at the moment. Like I said before all I will be doing is surfing the web playing games and YouTube. I don't really download music plus I have wiring at work so that's a plus. I think 10 gigs will be enough
