    Default Questions about Prepaid Carriers

    So I'm still on T-Mobile and about sick of their crap. Data coverage flat out sucks and I'm willing to pay more to get anything over 0.05Mbps on Edge. So my two choices for now is Cricket and Straight Talk (Will take suggestions!) Looking for people who have used and had experience with the carrier. Such as, how bad is the throttling on Straight Talk (speeds)?

    Stay away from ST. Company has a lot of issues. I'd look into Cricket Wireless. They are owned by att and the speeds are ok. What phone do you have? I thought it was super easy to stick my girlfriends parents onto Cricket Wireless. Speeds are even good too.

    I have the Tmo iPhone 5. But I'm going to buy an iPhone 6 on launch. I probably won't switch til then. The choice is really hard tho. I'm on 2.5GB on Tmo but I use about 1GB a day on Spotify. And music doesn't count towards your data bucket on Tmo.
    An option I'm looking into is getting an Unlimited 4GLTE plan on Verizon.

    As in you will buy the plan off of someone else?

    Yeah, buying the plan off of someone else is what I was thinking.

    I have been on Cricket for about 3 months now and am very happy. Not for sure if it is feasible if you are using a GB per day however. I am on the 3GB plan. Speeds are throttled but still good enough for me. 8Mbps on LTE and 4 on HSPA.

    Apologies for the necrobump didn't pay attention to the age of the thread.

    I'm on straight talks at&t sim, have been since February, my girlfriend is the one that turned me on to them and she's been with them for years, even have my son on them now.. no issues with their service, actually have better signal and reception than when I was on Verizon..

    Cricket is another mvno to look into, but they throttle your download speed to like 8 MBS like aio wireless does. not sure how there service is though, haven't used them..

    Cricket is not an mvno, it's actually a part of the ma-bell family (At&T)
