    If you read the article, it specifically says Sprint ranks last in Chicago...It's about halfway through.

    Specifically: "But your satisfaction can depend on where you live. The Consumer Reports survey looked at 23 metropolitan areas. It found the quality of cell service can vary from place to place. For example, Sprint is virtually tied with Verizon in St. Louis, but in last place (significantly below AT&T) in Chicago."

    That tells me that whichever carrier Mellimel is on at the current time, is always "the bestest"....

    As I've said repeatedly, I'm not a fanboy of any of the big 4, and would go prepaid if the right phone was available on their networks. I think they will be in a few years. Well, I think you'll be able to get the newest phones about 6 months after they come out in a few years. They're getting in the game more and more, an inch at a time. However, why would someone who has "no dog in this fight" be on this particular thread anyhow other than to stir the pot? Mellimel has a Samsung Epic 4G Touch, not a Galaxy S3, and is on Sprint, while this is a Verizon forum about the Verizon Galaxy S3. Not to mention, Mellimel claims that he/she? uses Wimax on a post dated 20 November and claims to have gotten a Galaxy Nexus that day...Then says he/she would have bought an S3 on Thursday or Friday (22 or 23 November) but is in arrears on his/her account so he/she can't get a second line. That said, just like the other guy said on another thread Mellimel, your posts are a joke. I'm surprised the Mods haven't intervened and shooed you back to the corner.

    Ok, you're a dude. Try being a man sometime and grow up. You didn't say you were planning on upgrading. You said " I get 1.5 on 3g which is enough and 10mb on wimax I'll report my lte speeds once my galaxy nexus gets here today" which implies you were waiting for UPS or FEDEX to arrive, or that your mom or girlfriend was bringing you one. AT&T is third in voice calls in Chicago...you got that right. Sprint is fourth and "Significantly behind AT&T". Have a wonderful day. I'm done replying (or pointing out your delusions) to you, so feel free to flame away.

    P.S. Back in September or October you claimed to have used "All 5 carriers this year". Get your lies straight. Better yet, try telling the truth instead.

    The only reason I'll leave Verizon (right now, unless they make me mad prior) when my contract is up, is if someone else has better coverage and lower prices with the newest phones. If that happens, I'm all in. I left Sprint in late September because my phone broke and they refused to let me upgrade early after being with them since 1998 and never asking for anything. My upgrade would have been November 3rd, so 6 weeks is all I needed for a bump. Sprint isn't much cheaper in reality. For me, it's $6.00 a month more for Verizon. I can afford $.05 a day for LTE when I want it.

    Back to the thread though, I couldn't really care about JB as TW is going over the top of it on the S3. If my phone ROM was an AOSP (which I used to run exclusively) I'd care. But, the phone works very well with TW, even though I use Nova Launcher instead.

    to derail you again

    I swapped out Verizon for Sprint because of your first two things. The covergae is not necessarily better, but it is pretty close (I have LTE everywhere I need to go except my house) but the savings is pretty high for me and my 5 lines. I have yet to test out the customer service, but I have to call them tonight...

    I don't understand why this "debate" is even occuring. You guys do realize that cell phone carriers are only in business because every single one of us overpay for the services right? The only reason we put up with it, is because in some areas we have no other options if we want to be connected and "plugged in" to the world around us.

    Verizon freaking sucks! That's why they plaster their stupid logo branding all over the place (Note 2 button), they screwed the vast majority of their customers with the new "Share Everything" plans, and they are by far the most expensive. I understand their service is the best in most places, but it still is morbidly overpriced. As far as Sprint goes, I consider Sprint to be the "punchline" of the carriers. Their horrid network and general atrocious phone selection is more of a joke than a service. Regardless, why sit and debate over which carrier is raping you better? Neither of them are in it for your benefit. I am on Verizon currently because I am saving up for the ETF's so I can go to Straight Talk.

    Right worst phones ever. Note 2, sgs3, the opt. G, evo (one series), they are just terrible.

    I am not a fanboi for sprint since I have been with them for all of 6 days now but let's sprinkle in some truth with your venom. Sprint messed up going with wimax but with the huge influx of cash they just got, you are going to see the network explode this up coming year

    ... And they are cheaper than Verizon to the tune of close to 1000 this year for me.

    I don't know if your response is to my post, but my post wasn't venom. That's why it threw me off as to whether or not you meant me or someone else. But if you were talking to me, I am not saying Sprint blows compared to anyone else, because ALL the carriers blow. They all screw their customers as often as they possibly can because that is where the cheap profits come in. And as far as phone quality, I said GENERAL atrocious phones. Up until this past summer, their phone selection was HORRIBLE. Basically they offered the high end HTC devices and that was it. You had pretty much no other option. (LG is only recently becoming impressive). So unless HTC hit one clean out of the park, your choices were subpar compared to AT&T and Verizon. Your fun little mentions of GS3 and Note 2 are recent. And that is Samsung's doing, not Sprint's. Samsung wants to reach everyone like Apple and therefore they make huge efforts to get their devices on all carriers. Sprint doesn't get full credit because it's not like they had to beg Samsung. And the HTC Evo line has never raised any ounce of interest in me, and like I said before, LG has only recently stepped their game up. So if you want truth, I can't give it to you since this whole market and ecosystem is based on personal taste and opinion.

    You are very correct that they are cheaper than Verizon and so that's why I said the argument is just you guys saying who rapes you better. Because Sprint is still expensive for the wimax. If they charged 1000.00 less for LTE, it would be a great deal. This is the exact reason I am looking into Simple Mobile or preferrably Straight Talk. I get great service in my area from them, and they are cheaper than Sprint would be for me. Cell Phone Carriers have done nothing to earn any of your trusts. We all have our preferences, but I would caution against arguing over who is best. They all suck in their own way.

    Yeah I completely agree that Sprint is way cheaper. If I didn't find Straight Talk, I would be headed to Sprint no question. I just think that even they are overpriced for the coverage that they have (or don't have) in comparison to AT&T or VZW. But even that is completely based on location. I know some people get fantastic Sprint coverage. I just have grown to despise each carrier. Verizon has pushed me too far with the Share Everything Plan and little annoyances like with the branded home button on the Note. They just have zero respect or compassion for their customers.

    I do agree with you that Verizon is out of control with just about everything. Straight talk is not the answer to the issue though. The TOS say they can pretty much cut you off if they deem any of your usage excessive. Be it talk, text or web. With Sprint I am only paying 25$ more than I would be with straight talk with no chance of a cut off.

    THis is from their TOS:

    Straight Talk may discontinue providing Service to you, discontinue your account, discontinue providing connections to particular telephone numbers or types of Services used or called by you, terminate data connections and/or reduce data throughput speeds for customers whose usage, in the sole judgment of Straight Talk: (1) appear likely to generate abnormally high call volumes or Mobile Web Access and data usage and/or abnormally long average call lengths or Mobile Web Access and data usage as compared to the usage of other Straight Talk customers; (2) may be harmful, disruptive, or interfere with the Carrier’s network or Straight Talk or the Carrier’s ability to provide service to other customers; or (3) for any other reason in Straight Talk’s sole discretion. For detailed description of activities that could result in service interruption or termination, see paragraph 7 and the section entitled “Straight Talk Features: Intended Use” under the Mobile Web Services Section below. By initiating Service and placing or receiving calls, you acknowledge and agree to Straight Talk’s right to terminate your Service under these circumstances.

    Straight Talk may modify or cancel any Service or take corrective action at any time without prior notice and for any reason, including but not limited to your violation of this agreement.

    My younger brother lives in Chicago and loves Sprint. He actually just switched from Verizon and has not had any complaints. I'm actually going to miss having Verizon and Unlimited LTE. I wanted to try out Prepaid for the longest time. What pushed me was losing my Unlimited Data because I added usage controls to my plan (had to block some numbers, long story). But, I couldn't be happier on T-Mobile Prepaid. I personally don't see the need (or want) for carrier fights. Each carrier brings something unique to the market; and it's always nice to have choice.

    Back on topic: What is sad is when you get wasted and proceed to spend the next hour or 2 trying to pull an update as a past time. I remember doing that one night when my Droid Pro was due to update to Gingerbread. The girlfriend wasn't too happy when she found out that I canceled romantic comedy night for a phone update

    Okay, the girl I work with got her JB update yesterday before coming to work on a Sprint S3. There are a couple of system settings that are cool like Cloud, but that's it. With TW over the top of it, even the icons are the same. No major differences, and "Project Butter" doesn't seem to show itself to be any smoother than my Nova Launcher. She crashed twice, so she's going to do a factory reset and start from scratch on it. I for one will be rooting this weekend so I can decline updates. Newer isn't always better unless it's factory installed...Kinda' like an aftermarket sunroof. Anyway, good luck to all who are waiting with bated breath for this update. My S2 was useless after the ICS update, and my Evo slowed down after the GB update. OTA's also work differently on every phone, just like a rooted ROM works differently even though the phones are identical in theory, and my phone is PERFECT right now.

    So go ahead and leave. Choice is great. I would not leave vzw and their superior coverage just because my latest device doesn't have an update for a phone that is already amazing. And an update that we will most likely have by end of year anyhow.
