    I left Sprint in 2011 for the same exact reasons regarding their slow data speeds. I didn't care if they were finally getting the iPhone the same day my contract was up. I fled to AT&T and haven't looked back.
    I was a blackberry addict. Once Sprint announced they would get the 4S I was excited. As soon as the first week with the 4S and sprints slow speed I realized how bad it was. I decided and waited and waited...then got the 5...excited since it was LTE...but again another let down. So I waited and waited again...I then went out and got the 5S at launch day...hoping this new LTE radio would pick up better sprint LTE...again another disappointment. This past weekend I said "enough!!!" took the 5S back to sprint...paid the $35 restocking fee. My wife's contract had ended so I didn't get hit with any EFT's. On my line I had 1 more year left so I paid a prorated EFT of $220. I can say for sure I'm looking forward in using the 5S on a carrier that's really good and awesome LTE speeds. I believe this will be the first iPhone I'm gonna enjoy to the fullest. Finally!!!

    Ported 2 sprint numbers to AT&T 9-30-13 (in store order) silver 32bg/gold 32gb. At first waiting for silver was 7-14 weeks and gold 28-40 days. Today I received both phone via USPS. Went back to store to finish new activation. Done deal! BTW AT&T LTE over sprint is like 40 times faster. Only regret is spending 12 years with sprint. I can now officially enjoy my iphone.

    Isn't it amazing? What a big change. It's like night and day. I never understood why all my friends bragged about AT&T. Now I understand. Here in Miami I have LTE everywhere. It's constant and fast. I'm here to stay. And the myatt app is a great tool. Enjoy. Thanx

    The only thing that kept me with sprint was the $$ and the unlimited but overall I'm not spending much more and the data I don't come close to our shared limit. Plus I prefer a GSM network over CDMA.

    I have always tried to go back to Sprint because if the unlimited data. But every time I do, I find out quickly why I keep leaving. The data speeds can be good if you are in a strong signal area. However, they drop significantly when the signal gets weak and renders the device unusable in some cases. I would love to have unlimited data, but being in Sprint's network isn't worth it.

    GSM is better. GSM phones have better resale value. I would only do 2-3gb a month with my wife and I on sprint. Wifi at office and home. We got a 4gb with Att. We have a good monthly discount. No activation fees. Only paying $21 more a month. No headaches. No stress.

    Yeah I'm on the 10gb plan with 5 iPhone users. I get 25% off my bill a month and 50% off accessories through my employer. I agree gsm phones have better resale value. I just sold my i5 for 400.00. Didn't take long at all.
