said by ejg1:First, talk to people where you work & live and see how their coverage is (with any device) on AT&T, Sprint, and VZ. I've had AT&T & Sprint, and both have different coverage issues in the bay area.
I am looking to buy a 4S and I would of course have to choose a service provider.
Next, assume the cost is going to be roughly the same for all three carriers - ballpark $100/mo for some package of minutes/2GB or "unlimited" data/unlimited SMS. They will all vary slightly, but they'll price out to within a few $ of that for a single user plan once all fees and taxes are added.
Check to see if you get a discount from your employer - 15-25% off makes a huge difference.
