Did a search and surprised I didn't see anything show up on this, but does anyone have recommendations between the different cell phone carriers and plans?
I know Verizon just changed all their plans to a share all and prices all look pretty high if you want data and all the plans aren't unlimited anymore.
Wife wanted to use an iPhone and I was thinking of jumping to a data plan as well to use wi-fi around the house (on the can, etc). It's hard to say how much data you use if the device can do wi-fi, but it's nice to not have to worry about going over and having an insane bill.
I read up a bit was planning to do Sprint since they have unlimited wireless, but noticed Sprint doesn't really have 4G LTE yet and no quick plans for San Diego initially. Also, the main concern is their financial viability of them with the punishing 15 mil/year iPhone contract they just signed with Apple.
Verizon looks good since they seem to be the furthest along with 4G LTE, but prices are very high.
That leaves AT&T which we use now, but I assume prices are the same.
They all look bad in the end, but was curious what other folks are using and ways to minimize cost.
We can choose one of the small local carriers with no plan, etc, but those don't tend to have good coverage outside the local area.
