    Default Thinking about At&t

    Why a new phone if I have one that will work on AT&T?

    If I bring my own device (iPhone 5 from Verizon...) to AT&T to try it out, do still have to sign a contract with them or can I just go monthly? I have looked at their website and it seems as if they require a contract even if you already have a phone.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: yes I know the Verizon Five will not pick up AT&Ts LTE signal.

    You can go month to month. No contract needed. However they will still check your credit in order to open a line of service. But you can use an upgrade whenever you would like to.

    The iPhone 5 is factory unlocked. It is capable of using AT&T or T Mobile SIM card. Several Verizon phones can. The Rezound can right out of the box. Last I knew there were data problems and texting difficulties, but you could make and receive phone calls.

    Default Thinking about At&t

    I am a looooong time Verizon customer. Where I work the signal is killing me. I am ten feet from the edge of a building, but cannot get signal. If I walk out the door ten feet away, I jump to four bars of LTE. My friends with AT&T seem to have no problem. So I was thinking of getting AT&T sim for the periods I have to work in that building. Our jobs rotate so I am not always in there. I figure when I have to spend a month or two in there, I can put AT&T sim in the iPhone 5 and re activate my iPhone 4 on my Verizon number.

    More than anything, I am just thinking out loud. I will stay with Verizon as long as my wife and I can keep unlimited data. Once we lose that, I'll go prepaid gsm somewhere.

    Ahhhh, I see. I am in a totally different boat. Im just looking to dump sprint. Cant deal with their abysmall speeds and spotty 3g and non exsistent 4g promises anymore. I am willing to pay more for good service. My contract with sprint ends today and I would rather go gsm than cdma again.

    Yes, any GSM-capable phone can be used on AT&T, and if it's unlocked and you bring your own device, you can go month-to-month with no contract. At least i believe that is still the case.

    If for whatever reason I dont decide to get the gn2 (Size maybe) what other phones would you guys/gals recommend. I plan on spending alot of time with the gn2 once it arrives but size is a small but main concern. I have the gs3 on sprint now but would be open to other phones/manufacters, even international phones that work on att bands. Any ideas?

    If you like Sammy devices then I'd stick with the S3 on att if the GN2 is to big for you.

    Ive had both Sprint and ATT.

    Living in the Bay Area, the only advantage of AT&T is that I didnt have dropped calls. In terms of the DATA, ATT service is just as slow and coverage sucks just as much as Sprint. Just my .02

    Well thats not too encouraging. I heard At&t was pretty good now considering their dropped call problems of years back. Sucks they just changed their try out policy from 30 to 14 days but thats still enough time for me to work the hell out their service to real world test it. I have to make a decision on what I am going to do and make it soon

    You get what you pay for. Before I switched to att, I had Verizon for 5 years. It was expensive but worth it in los Angeles and from what I see with others, worth it in Denver too.

    Before the shared plans I saved over $30/mo with AT&T for the same exact plan which was my main reason for switching. Quality had been just a tad below Verizon but has gotten better. And once I get LTE I'll be happier than ever.

    I have sprint through work and I'm sick of dropping calls on clients. Our branch in los Angeles had the same issues. It's stupid.

    Make the switch.

    Lol. I hear what your saying. I have the gs3 on sprint so I am familiar with samsung devices. I see you have the one x from htc. How do you like it compared to the gs3?

    I was in Oakland, Vallejo, sac and the city in July. My HOX got excellent data all over and LTE in Oakland, bay bridge and the city. Maybe you got a bad handset?

    Well after playing with a note 2 yesterday for about an hr, I have decided its not for me. Awesome device, spen, features and screen but the size is just too big for me for everyday use. So now im back to the drawing board because I still wanna ditch sprint and join att. I mist first sell my sprint gs3 and either buy an att gs3 outright, used or gt another phone all together to avoid signing a two yr agreement. Any ideas? My wife is not happy with me right now. Lol :o

    Get an S3 used or new from att ($550 new I think) or wait until Monday rolls around...The new Nexus will be out by then! (Crossing fingers!) I personally will be sticking with my S3 as I am happy with it.

    Yeah I love the S3, just not sprint. Lol. Im checking all the back channels as well, ebay, craigslist, etc. I forgot about the 29th so I may wait a few days just to see whats in store. Thanx for the reminder. If all else fails once I sell my sprint gs3 that should cover the cost of another s3 on att but I will prolly take a 100-150 dollar hit. Worth it to be done with sprint though

    I agree with you 100%! I left Sprint 6-7 months ago and love att so far. Great speeds on HSPA+ and pretty good coverage.

    I dont care about the "Unlimited data" anymore. I use about 2-4 gigs a month so not a heavy data user. What good is unlimited data when the data speeds are just crap?? I would rather pay for a service I can use. Would you mind if I pm'd u a question?
