    Obviously my experience won't be the same for everyone, but I travel all over the country and can say that Verizon is much more consistent in the vast majority of locations versus ATT in my personal experience. I'm not a Verizon fanboy or an ATT hater, I would absolutely love to go back to ATT if they got their coverage in order; I've had similar customer service experiences on both as well, maybe a bit better on Verizon so that's never been an issue for me. The reason I would love to go back to ATT is because I much prefer the GSM standard over CDMA+LTE for many reasons, but not enough to sacrifice on coverage, because ATT simply is very bad in the locations I most frequent in my personal experience.

    I recommend trying it out before you commit, if the places you spend the most time in have good ATT coverage I would recommend them, since when I had good ATT coverage their call quality and data speeds were excellent, but my problem was the bad spots out numbered the good spots too often.

    I have a prepaid ATT sim card that I throw in my Verizon iPhone 5 to test them out for a bit to see if they have improved anything, The signal in my house has seemed to improve a bit, but my data speeds are still less than 1mbps on HSPA+ and no LTE in my area still. When on Verizon LTE I get 12+ on average and on EVDO I get 1.5-2 mbps, which is sad that EVDO beats HSPA+ in my house.
    Where in Illinois and Wisconsin? I am in the Chicago area and Verizon 4g goes to 3g or voice often. Was just in Columbus, WI. and got horrible verizon

    The only real issue I have with AT&T or any other carrier for that matter is all the bloatware they dump on the phone that I the paying customer can't delete unless I want to void their warranty & try rooting the phone.

    I have the SGS2 & it works fine on AT&T's system albeit on 4G. All I really want is all AT&T's bloateware off because I want on the phone only those apps I will use & the one thing Samsung forgot the voice dialing feature.

    Specifically Aurora, Naperville and Rockford in IL, all of which both ATT and Verizon were pretty equal. The only trouble spot in IL for ATT really for me was the drive between Aurora and Rockford, my ATT iPhone would be spotty while Verizon I would at least have stable EVDO.

    In WI I drive up from Chicago along the lake front to the end of the Door County Peninsula where some family of mine has a house, and that drive ATT is only useful up until about Manitowoc and from there forward Verizon is smuch more use-able while ATT sputters down to edge pretty much. When you actually are in Door County, ATT's roaming partners are useless (I believe its bug tussel and airfire mobile), its entirely edge and at my family's house there isn't service for a mile in any direction with a GSM phone. With my Verizon phone, however, I have 3g service all over the peninsula including their house, it isn't the fastest, but it's better than edge.

    This is just my experience so I can totally see a state like WI which seems to have terrible coverage by all the big carriers being a total crap shoot on coverage at any given location. All of my experience in WI is on the lake side almost exclusively up to Green Bay/Door county and down to Milwaukee. Also, Chicago and the burbs is a huge market and any carrier will most likely be at least adequate.

    That just sucks. Sorry to hear lol. Since I moved to Aurora 3 years ago, I haven't had an issue with AT&T service. Little spotty in boulder but fine in Colorado springs. Although when I'm there for business it's on the main streets of the 25. But more people I meet have Verizon out here. LTE lit up today, not officially I guess but it's here in Denver. Even without it I don't get below 3mbps. Not where I frequent at least, all of Aurora, generous village, downtown Denver, north Colorado springs, Westminster and a few other cities. He'll of a lot better reception/data than T-Mobile and Sprint (which I have through work) that's for sure.

    With all the memory and space on newer phones, I'm not sure why this is still am issue. AT&T has like 2 more pre loaded apps than VZW or Sprint lol. I just disable them on my one x.

    I am not happy with the EDGE only coverage. Very slow. Search on Google for AT&T Coverage viewer and see if they offer at least 3G. If they don't and only offer EDGE I wouldn't recomend going to AT&T.

    I was with Sprint for over 7 years and about 9 months ago I made the jump to att. Sense then its been nothing but smooth! Coverage is good and the HSPA+ is awesome IMO. Glad to see you made the jump to some real service as well! Welcome to att!

    In Arkansas AT&T is the best of the worst. No one in this area has good signals or service. I have used iPhones for the last 6 or 7 years and the updates were coming and coming . Always an update to a better OS on the iPhone. Now have an HTC and just after getting it and too late to exchange they come out with a X+ with the Jelly Bean update. Still stuck with the HTC and no updates and none in the forecast. Have 3 lines on the plan. One on unlimited data , one on limited data, and one plain jane phone no data. A bit pricey. but still the best of the worst.

It made me appreciate what I had with AT&T and as soon as my contract is up I'm going back to AT&T and pay for the phone myself.
    That's pretty much my experience with Verizon.

    I made the move from 7 years of Sprint to ATT in November.
    Ive found ATT to have better coverage , Data speeds , CS , Corps stores etc well worth the extra 20.00 a month.

    ATT LTE arrived in my area - VA Beach a couple weeks ago providing 40.00Mbps/29.00Mbps data speeds which is faster then my cox cable internet.
    I ran a speed test on my buddy's Sprint Galaxy Note 2 last night finding very sketchy LTE performance with speeds 1.50Mbps/1.00Mbps.

    I have been with att now for all most 9 months. I had Sprint for about 7-8 years. Att has offered me MUCH better coverage, CS and support over all. With my discount I save about 20% off my total bill. Making att a whole $10 more a month. BUT I have switched to Google for my texting needs and phone call needs and saved another $25 a month. Making att $10 less! (About $65 a month for 450 minutes, ZERO texts but I have Google voice and 3 gigs of data that I don't even come close to using fully.)

    So here is some advice...USE GOOGLE VOICE! save more and just let people use that number instead. I like att so far! Plus I'm glad I ditched the later network. (Sprint)

    I checked the plans. Right now I have 2 phones on T-Mobile with 2GB of 4G service and unlimited voice/text/data for $60 each. The same same plan on T-Mobile for shared 4GB is $150. ($70 + $40 for each phone.) I just cannot get the math to work.

    I was with Sprint for 9 years. I switched to Att Feb 2nd and love it. They even waved the activation for both lines. It's nice to see that 4g and 4g lte symbol which I never saw on my Sprint phones.

    Chea depends on your area. Glad your happy though . I can't blame anyone for leaving if your area didn't get NV... The 3g without it is awful.

    I too recently switched from sprint to ATT and love ATT compared to sprint I live in phoenix and Las Vegas both have great LTE for ATT while sprint sucked in Phoenix and Las Vegas I am glad I made the switch. My dad has sprint and his s3 drops calls and takes 3min to load a web page. I have the galaxy note 2 on ATT takes me 2sec to load something. And I get no more dropped calls inside my dorm room. Yes I pay more but the service is worth it. Could not be happier.

    Well the HTC one is coming soon and the galaxy s4 will be announced later this month. If you could wait that will be the newest and best but if you can't wait note 2 is awesome and should get the next big android update. I love the note 2

I told them both that, that is pretty much the only reason why I'm still with them.

    Anyway, I got my phone upgraded at a non ATT store, they made a note on my account, and I called right before signing the new contract to confirm. I got someone who knew what they were talking about, and I was able to keep my Unlimited plan.

    I was mostly annoyed that ATT on the phone at first, nor the store reps knoew anything about the Unlimited Plan carrying over.
    That has happened to me before, so I just let the rep know that I can keep my data plan so that there is no confusion. Before my GN2 I would switch phones every few months by just calling to give the imei # before I put my sim card in it. It works! Let them know that you are aware of what you are entitled to as an At&t customer. ;-)

    I just switched to AT&T from Verizon about three months ago. I really wanted to be able to buy the unlocked Nexus devices. So far, I have no complaints. Life has been sweet. HSPA+ Dope's have been good and I haven't really had any dropped calls. AT&T seems to be a lot better this time around than before.
