Re: switching carriers People on forums like this are not the typical consumer, the typical consumer has Verizon in NJ, most users also don't think about changing carriers. the different between Verizon and Sprint or T-mobile coverage was night and day in NJ, 5 years ago, now any of them is good enough.
The fact that you couldn't get a subsidized handset and hold onto unlimited day, lost them quite a few of the users here, but not so much among the average users. Also GSM handsets are so much easier to swap and often cheaper at second hand places like ebay.
