    I plan on sticking with Sprint, because I already have unlimited data plan and I live in Philadelphia which is expecting to get LTE probably before the end of the year.

    I give your decision a grade of: WTF?!?!
    I agree sprint sucks. If a customer service unlimited data and some of the best phone but their data speeds sucks. That's what you're paying for is too use their network. I paid 10 dollars additional a month to use their 4g speeds and didn't even ever get it. I'm off to t mobile too. My friend has an S2 on t mobile and he gets 10mbps.

    I cant endorse any other carrier but when I order my next phone it wont be with Sprint. I live in a part of the country that never even got WiMax and my 3G speeds are consistently horrible. I might go back to Sprint in a few years when they have that network rolled out but I can't live with it anymore. Now I just need to find the most affordable / reasonable solution. Pricing them all out it looks like I'm headed for $160 on two lines no matter who I go with.

    HSPA isnt 4g, LTE isnt real 4g either

    If you're in Houston, you do realize that city will get LTE from Sprint by the end of the month, right?

    Check Sprint 4G Rollout Updates, they might even help you out with launch dates.

    If you want to leave, nothing is stopping you, but you'll never get LTE either. HSPA+ is OK, it's just not the show stopper LTE is.



    Sorry but AT&T and Verizon are going to outgun T-Mo bad for a long time. Sprint will be in the same ballpark when they flip on LTE. What about T-Mo? Negatron on LTE until 2013.

    T-Mobile also has the highest drop call rate in RootMetrics testing in the Houston area.

    Define 4g? Really nothing will ever be 4G, I mean I get average 8mb on HSPA and that is more than fast enough for me.

I downloaded an album from at site with 17 tracks in under 40 seconds. Does it have to be that fast? No, but it's nice to know it's available
    Thats great..but I'll be paying 89.99 as opposed to 130..Don't mind a little slower download speeds. But with Sprint its a no go for me at this point.

    Sorry, but Sprint is way behind in it's deployment..Houston?? thats laughable too me they have to do better..Hey Tmobile's contract termination is only 200 bucks so thats nothing. If I don't like Tmobile ill just sale the gs3 then go back to Sprint IF they have gotten their act together.

    By the time you get the GS3 from T-Mo in your hands you will have some real world comparisons to make as I'm pretty sure Missouri City is part of the launch area for LTE from Sprint.

    Fortunately you have the 14 days for T-Mobile.

    I will truly take a test if LTE is turned on for Sprint within the next 20 days. Im going to think about it overnight and may call Tmobile to cancel my pre-order. Sprint will allow me to get out of my contract by paying them 165 bucks and then I can get the gs3 for 199. I'll just sale the gs2 on CS and make up the difference. However, if I don't see anything deployed from Sprint within this 20 day window i'm gone. Check out the Sprint forums and its littered with complaints about network performance all over the country. Its shameful that they havn't come out and made a public apology or at least offered us loyal customers an additional 50 bucks off the gs3 or at least allow us to upgrade without buying out our current contract. This is a very poor display of customer service. I feel very sorry for those that purchased the iphone 4 because it doesn't even have a lte radio.

    I don't care if HSPA+ if 4G or not, it can be 0G for all I care as long as I get 7-9Mbps around town.

    I ditched Sprint last for T-Mobile last month and don't regret it a bit

    real 4g is 100mbps

    Either way i am sticking with sprint. I can wait for network vision.

    And for those complaining about the OP going to tmobile. It is his choice, sprint sucks in his area so why should he stay where he isnt happy. I am sure Tmobile will be good for him, and should be fine with the 5gb cap, since he prob has wifi at home and could use that there.

    It will take alot to beat my the download speed from my home ISP my average download speed is 25-30 mbps(funny thing is i only pay for 15mbps)

    Considering you are in a launch market for sprint LTE, you are crazy for leaving them.

    Of course Sprint isn't going to dump money into old technology when they are about to deploy all new fiber/microwave backhaul, all new base stations, all new remote mounted radio units, and all new antennas.

    Early Sprint 4G LTE speedtests are showing peak speeds over 30mbit. On a loaded network, that will be faster than anything T-Mobile has until T-Mobile launches LTE in Houston.

    You just downgraded.

    I understand you are frustrated with the data speeds but they aren't going to add legacy T-1's to sites that are a few months away from deploying all new hardware.

    Anyway, if you are covered with T-Mobile, that's great and I am sure you will be happy with the speeds... but considering Sprint will have active LTE in Houston before T-Mobile... again you are downgrading.

    I was ticked earlier this year with data speeds, but things are getting better here... much better. So I re-upped.

    Priced Verizon, and even with my corporate discount, it's $84.60 before tax and with no insurance. I now pay $63 with TEP on Sprint including tax and all. Can't see spending $40 more when I add Verizon insurance and tax.

    T-Mobile is maybe $10-12 cheaper than that, but still way more than with Sprint. And T-Mobile coverage is terrible especially when traveling. Been there, and won't go back. I went from T-Mobile TO Sprint. They've done nothing to win me back.

    That's what I'm on. Sero Premium. Isn't $58 the cost before tax? It's $40 for Sero Premium, $10 for premium data, and $8 for TEP. Comes to about $63 after tax.
