    It's pretty simple, on which carrier is your iPhone 5s running? I'm curious as it seems that since Verizon and at&t have put the kibosh on unlimited data that more and more people are migrating to Sprint, T-Mobile, Prepaid, and regional carriers.

    I'm on Verizon, but with grandfathered unlimited data on all of our lines (thankfully).

    T-mobile. They're LTE and 4G is pretty fast and reliable in all of my area but their in-building penetration could use a little work and I pay $80/mo for unlimited internet, talk & text with a 5GB hotspot.

    Oh the things I would do to have that plan on Verizon. I pay just over $200 per month for four lines, two are smartphones with unlimited data and two are dumb phones. We also have unlimited text messaging but I don't even know how many minutes because we never come close to the limit, I think it's like 800 or 900, though. Generally, we'll use about a fifth of that.

    That's a lot. If I were to add my brother, mom, and sister on my account (3 smartphones) my bill would be about $150 or less.

    AT&T. In my opinion they're the best carrier right now. The coverage and speed is excellent

    Had AT&T for 18 years through all the name changes etc... Switch to straight talk and haven't looked back. Still using AT&T towers but for $46 unlimited everything albeit throttled data after 2.5GB opposed to AT&T 5GB which I never come close to. So I figured why pay close to $100 for the same thing.

    I've been with AT&T through all the name changes also. I've had a mobile phone since 1995. Currently I have my iPhone 5s and iPad Air with 10GB shared, unlimited talk and text. I had unlimited data on the phone only up until March. Because I've never been a fan of the small screen, I rarely used more than 2GB a month. On the iPad I easily would exceed 3GB which I was paying $30.00 a month billed separately.
    This is only my second month on this plan. I am saving about $50.00 a month between the out of contract discount and my employer discount. Currently I have less than two weeks in this billing cycle and have used about 60% of the allotted plan. I guess I have about 12 days of ensuring I am using WiFi more frequently.

    It is, unfortunately, but I'm used to it now. Plus, I don't think I could move to a newer plan and retain unlimited data.

    T-Mobile. In city it is really great LTE speeds and good call quality. My only qualm is that if you leave it, you'll get practically nothing and calls drop like flies. I have to substitute this with my 5c on Boost Mobile.

    Tmobile from voice stream days until 2009 when I got the iPhone 3GS on AT&T switched back to tmobile for the HTC hd7 and then switched again for the Titan 2 on AT&T then Lumia 920.


    Finally I came home to tmobile again due to price and jump since I like to change devices. I have the 5s and get faster LTE then on AT&T in the Seattle area

    Won't the two biggest company's get the most votes? Kinda useless poll (Please no offense) just how it is. Wouldn't it be more thorough to ask who switched from the 2 biggies, and why? Just saying ...

    They will likely get the most votes, but that doesn't render it useless. Verizon and at&t drawing the most votes doesn't negate the other carrier's results, which is what I was most curious about (Sprint and T-Mobile in particular). And yes, it's nice to know who's switched, but knowing only who switched from the largest two carriers is only half the story as it's nice to know who's switched from the smaller carriers as well. But in case you didn't notice, many people before you gave explanations regarding their switches, so I guess the message was received.

    Verizon since it was air touch ..
    Bill is like 360
    5 lines 4 iPhones
    Edge on one line and ipad payment on account also
    It is split between people so it's not that bad

    Sprint has no LTE In my area and tmobile does have LTE but coverage is hit and miss

    I do have the free 200mb sim in my ipad so that comes in handy

    I thought about switching to tmobile since they will pay etf but buying new phones would be such a pain and one is on edge so prob not a good move.

    I still have one line with unlimited on my account I fought as much as I could to keep them but every all I just caved

    I would never go to sprint .. In fact I would prob go to straight talk before anyone else

    Your message is confusing to say the least. Maybe one should reiterate the true purpose of the poll ...

    I understand why it's confusing because you're right, the original purpose is slightly different from my curiosity now. I originally was mostly thinking of the unlimited data issue and where it has lead people, but after reading all the replies I'm more interested in the smaller carriers, though that's not a huge departure from the original message because if people leave the big two, then they obviously have to go with a smaller carrier. But I do understand that the message got somewhat jumbled.
