    Our family contract is up and I'd like to do a little research on options before renewing. Right now, we have a family plan for 700 minutes and unlimited texting. No one currently has a smartphone so we've not had to add a data plan.

    Anyone use Sprint or T-mobile? I'd appreciate any recommendations.

    following this thread because we want to upgrade our phones to smartphones since we want the data plan also. We currently use T-Mobile and really haven't had any problems with them. I keep hearing Verizon is the better company and to avoid AT&T.

    Of course the next question is what is the best smartphone to have? Samsung Galaxy S3, Iphone, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx,etc

    I've had every cell phone carrier except for T-Moble (currently with AT&T). And I'd say they're all about the same. But I'm also not in your area so I can't comment on reception, just phones and customer service.

    T Mobile is actually pretty good from our experience

    i can tell you sprint has a ton of dead zones in TN.

    In my experience, if you go anywhere out of the way, you will lose service. When I lived in Memphis, my apartment was right beside the 385, I could not get service in my apartment. I had to go out on my patio to get one bar. Which was then made useless, because I could not hear because of the traffic.

    AND THEN
    my dog got ahold of my phone and chewed the mic out. This has nothing to do with Sprint, I just want to blame it on them anyway.

    Sprint has tons of dead spots. I still use it because of the price but find myself wanting to see how far I can throw my phone sometimes.

    I hardly ever have "dead spots", and normally have a good connection. My area doesn't have 4G which sucks. I also get a discount through work because they're corporate partners... that's why I mostly have Sprint. Pretty much everyone I've been in Illinois works. Sitting in my tree stand in the middle of no where Illinois, still got 3 bars. The only time I had dead spots was Lake Cumberland, KY... no phone service for a week.

    I saw recently that Sprint got bought out by some Chinese Corporation. Supposedly they will enhance Sprint and assist with adding more towers for improved service.

    I just switched from att to verizon, and I like verizon much better.

    Oh, two recommendations on smart phones. Do not get the Samsung galaxy stellar (the free one.) It is a pos. I took it back after three days.

    I have the Motorola stood razr m, and it is wonderful. Highly recomended.

    We ended up staying with T-Mobile and upgrade our phones to the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Now to learn all about the phone
