Yeah new York always had good service , other than subway of course Lol. I visited twice in 09 and in summer of 2010 and both trips I hsd good service throughout the city. From upper east side to the statue of library. And from jersey city to Queens.

I'll probably stick with Sprint. Where I live their reception is better than the other major carriers and the unlimited data is nice to have.

Unfortunately, Sprint has seriously degraded their coverage Wisconsin. Up until last June, even if you didn't have Sprint service, you would at least have roaming service to make phone calls.

Now, outside of actual Sprint coverage areas, it's a 70-80% likelihood that you get No Service. And that's not just with my GS3. People with the Evo who got great roaming coverage before are getting no service in northern Wisconsin.

I just switched my main line to US Cellular, and have yet to experience No Service. I could brag about getting 10-15Mb 4g speeds, too, but I know that's not quite fair since 4g is not here from Sprint yet.

However, I have unlimited data for only $7 more than the equivalent Sprint plan.

Im choosing to stay. Sprint started rolling out lte in most of brooklyn, New York and finally my area. I called customer service to see when the speeds will be better (right now lte speeds are the same as 3g but thats because they started rolling out). Customer service didnt even know that there was lte in brooklyn ny lol. He said the system only showed lte for the bronx and some of manhattan and queens. Good thing im being patient. I cant beat unlimited data. I download/stream/hotspot and a whole bunch of stuff. I use more than 25gb a month in data. Once lte is fully set in my area I will disconnect my wifi (optimum).

show me something worth my attention

I already disconnected my Optimum WiFi b4 I joined sprint. But it ended up that 4G doesn't reach my house.

Same here. No more road runner. My friends gs3 on tmobile got 1.12mbs downloading a torrent off the hotspot. Rooted of course. Just waiting there working on McAllen, TX as we speak! Finally 4g. Almost jumped ship but I can't find good roms for tmobile gs3 that would convince me to switch. But you best believe I will have the gs7,8,9,10,11,12,.... If they keep on supporting Odin and making it so easy to recover a bricked phone! But they could update the build with some damn aluminum framework or something.
