    Unfortunately it's time for me to say goodbye to Verizon. I'm jumping ship to go to a carrier that has a less tenuous relationship with Google. After the whole tablet fiasco coupled with VZW's decision not to carry the Nexus 5, I've decided that this is probably a good decision. But where do I go? I've been super pleased with VZW's 4G coverage...who is the most comparable with speed and sheer coverage area?

    Depends on where you live and it depends on your usage to answer this. AT&T generally has comparable coverage to verizon though.

    AT&T is the only one that's close in terms of size. Where you live though maybe its bad, no carrier is perfect everywhere. You'll have to check coverage maps of your area and where you travel to see which network is the best.

    I am also leaving Verizon but where I live T-Mobile is great. As a matter of fact all of the big carriers are good in phoenix except sprint.

    Seattle looks to have great coverage with all the big carriers. I've personally used Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Verizon has been the best speed and coverage wise. But most importantly the best in my workplace.

    Sprint has the worst coverage in Seattle. T-Mobile has LTE now and their backup HSPA+ network is pretty fast. 10mbps down on hspa+ and 30 down on LTE.

    Going to be on AT&T. I will just walk in the store with a sign on my chest reading "Dont take away my unlimited". They always ask to remove it and change whenever I walk in the place. Looking forward to tethering LTE!!!

    I'll try T-Mobile again. I still have my $30 plan SIM. If I can call my wife and friends without having to stand next to a window then I'll drop VZ.

    I'm gonna have to look into this tomorrow ... I currently have tmo 100min 5gb hspa+ and satisfied but did not know they had an actual LTE now. Not sure how much more it would cost to get LTE

    I did the same thing! Had the Verizon GNex (LOL) for almost 2 years now. Going to AT&T share plan for 4 GB with my Nexus 5 32 GB in black when it arrives Tuesday night

    Okay, so if I use AT&T do I need to setup a 2 year contract or can I do it prepaid?

    You can use Aio Wireless or Straight Talk (AT&T's Prepaid offerings). Only downside is you don't get roaming when outside of their network, at least on Aio Wireless

    Interesting. So straight talk gives me ATT's coverage including LTE and all I need to do is buy a sim from them?

    I'm on AT&T. I've been a long time customer, and was with Cingular prior to them. I'm generally satisfied with their service. I just popped my SIM into my N5 and got some good speeds (LTE).

    All data is the same price on that plan.

    Just tell them if AT&T gives you any trouble " I will go to AIO Wireless that AT&T owns 100% of AIO and uses the same AT&T network for a lot cheaper.

    GoPhone is AT&T no Contract services using their AT&T Network service. AIO is AT&T's No Contract discount service that uses AT&T that is like T-Mobile's Metro PCS network.

    Straight Talk Wireless is owned by TracFone Wireless, Inc. is a prepaid wireless service provider in the United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. TracFone Wireless offers its wireless products and services under various brands that include TracFone, NET10 Wireless, Straight Talk, SafeLink Wireless, Telcel América, and Simple Mobile. TracFone Wireless is subsidiary of Mexico's largest telecommunications company América Móvil and operates as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) having multiple agreements to provide service utilizing the networks of the United States largest wireless carriers including AT&T Mobility, Sprint Corporation, T-Mobile US, and Verizon Wireless.

    I went with Straight Talk & their at&t sim. So far the call quality is good and the data is fast. I was going to try Aio but when I heard they throttle your data speeds I chose ST.

    If you're going AT&T... definitely GoPhone over Aio or any MVNO. You don't want LTE throttling.
    Interested to hear about what the coverage in Seattle is like; will be visiting family & friends there soon.
