    Default HSPA+ & Prepaid & AT&T & T-Mobile

    When my contract is up with Verizon, I am going to switch to a prepaid service. I want to get an Android phone that can support HSPA+ on both T-Mobile and AT&T. Which phones fall into this category?

    Thanks

    Well, if you live in a city where T-mobile has refarmed their 1900mhz frequency to 3G then any Android phone that supports AT&T HSPA frequences will also do the trick.

    As for prepaid service, my best suggestion is the $30 100 min, unlimited text, and 5GB plan from T-mobile...if not then Straight Talk

    I live in a rural area and T-Mobile support isn't that great so I don't see that my city will be getting that for a while but I am going to try that plan first. I keep hearing something about Straight Talk and no streaming support. Is that still the case? I heard that Pandora would not work. Also, is AT&T GoPhone not an option with these unlocked phones? I know their monthly fee is $65 for GoPhone which is considerably more but still better than Verizon prepaid.

    hmmm.. I never heard that about streaming with Straight Talk. I just tested it to make sure and I can verify Pandora works just fine on ATT Straight Talk, so does YouTube, Spotify and Google Music if your wondering.
