      What plan do you have with Sprint?

      • Abe Villa

        I have four iPhone 5’s with unlimited data, texting, and family shared 1500 mins which we barely hit 400 between us all. and i pay 290.00 with verizon i was paying for 2 phones 165.00.. bs

      • HeyNow

        Do you have unlimited data? If you do, did your plan price go up when Chicago got 4G?

      • Abe Villa

        everything is unlimited… 3g & LTE. the 3g has improved a lot. i never hit a spot here in chicago or surrounding suburbs where im 3g. and even then 3g is plenty fast. i travel for meetings alot and i always tether lte to rMBP with no problem.

      • HeyNow

        That’s great, I’ll probably switch to Sprint when my Verizon contract is up. I have a pretty basic plan with only unlimited texting, and I am paying over $100 a month. I’ve been researching Sprint’s plans, and it seems like for like $90/month I’ll get unlimited data, texting, nights/weekends, mobile-to-mobile, and then I’ll get like 400 minutes to landlines during weekdays. That’s actually pretty amazing for $90, because that’s virtually unlimited.

    Maybe I’ll leave Verizon and their slow ass LTE in NYC if Sprint hits the switch on NYC.

    Everyone are iPhone data hoggs over here, so LTE isn’t the greatest sometimes over here.
