The nice thing about tier 1 carriers (I have Verizon) is they have a thing called customer service (and they answer their phones stateside) is they can easily address network and device issues. Try getting that from an MVNO.
I had a problem with the 3G connection on my iPhone 4. A quick call to CS determined that it was damage to their network from Sandy (even though our area did not get hit that bad) and not my device.
A quick call to customer service? I suppose with every storm of the millennium we can expect an automatic message placing blame on it for service disruptions.

Generally in my experience, an MVNO works very well or doesn't work at all. And any outages affecting MVNOs are probably also affecting the so-called Tier 1 carrier as well.
To each their own I suppose. The savings with using an MVNO are substantial, the quality just as great, and I personally don't need any hand-holding or pampering from customer service.

To be honest, I often wonder if just going to a site is a threat to my legal safety and has nothing to do with downloading anything at all.
I like anime for instance, and do on occasion wonder, 'is just watching some of these totally ordinary totally legal, aired over the TV in some cases shows' a danger to me?
To look at the attitude of some out there, I'd be less at risk being caught jacking off to outrageous porn than I would be getting caught watching publicly aired anime.
Society has simply become too full of crap for it's own good.
I have come to a point where I have just decided to tune out a lot of the hysterical rantings of those that seem only dedicated to futile efforts based on 20th century thinking.
