I'm getting the new iphone when it comes out and I'm not sure which of the phone service providers I should get, ATT, Sprint or Verizon. THeir prices for the plan I would get are very close but I don't know which has the best service. Thanks.

The 3G and 4G coverage and speeds are pretty decent, but it's going to depend a lot on where you are.

Me too. This is a good question, because I'm currently on T-Mobile, and my plan will run out soon. I used to have Verizon, and I get pretty good coverage where I live. I'll probably go with that, because I can't really stand AT&T, and I get crappy coverage here with Sprint.

Verizon. I currently have AT&T; but my sister's boyfriend always have service when we go camping or elsewhere. Where my iPhone does not.

AT&T treats you like you have no shirt or shoes.

I can't edit my post on mobilesite.

To say a bit more, having LTE on my Nexus has been amazing. When I get bumped back to 3g, I wonder how I ever was able to get anything done on my phone before LTE. If your in an area that has it, go for the iPhone on Verizon.

How about the get the phone that doesn't make innocent Chinese people kill themselves.

Yeah, it'll really just depend on where you are. I live in Austin (Houston in the summer) and I haven't had a single problem with AT&T, either in their customer service or in their coverage, in the 10 years that I've had a cell phone with them. 
 
 
 
Obviously a lot of people like to shit on AT&T, but like I said, I've never had any problems with them, so I'd take any carrier recommendations/horror stories with a grain of salt.

I don't think such a phone exists.

Fuck the iPhone. Signup for Sprint and get an Android. It's not that I hate Apple, I just hate AT&T and Verizon.
