The iPhone 4S's are our only phones. We don't have a landline in the house. So this is it. We have unlimited everything so it works out for us.
We have a VOIP landline that costs $54/year.

I have an iPhone 4S with AT&T. Here are the reasons I stuck with AT&T even though their coverage isn't as good as Verizon's in my area:

1. Rollover minutes. I've accrued nearly 4,000 in the past 3 years.
2. Fastest data speeds.
3. The upgrade eligibility dates are sooner.
4. Simultaneous voice and 3G data.
5. This reason no longer applies since I have a 4S, but it was another valid reason why I stuck with AT&T and didn't switch to Verizon when they came out with the iPhone 4 last February: worldwide coverage.

Carrier wise it just depends on where you live. I had Sprint 9 years before switching to AT&T. After having the iPhone 4 since last September 2010, I live in or near the Kansas City area and way too many drop calls with AT&T. Been told Verizon is better but speed is slower and cost more. Just have to check all the plan options and decide what's best. Decisions-Decisions... I have the family plan 1400 minutes, 2gb data on 2 iPhone 4's and the 200mg on another and a slider phone (wife's). Plan + taxes $242.00

AT&T's 3G is fasts but their plan selection sucks, it's not even more like a plan because they don't come as bundle.
Only thing I don't like is no unlimited data and you have to pick your limit for text . Too expensive for that.

I'm happy with my 79.99, I have 450 + 300 bonus minutes,unlimited to any cell carrier and unlimited text & data
Even though the 3G is not fast as the others I get great reception and I rather pay less for something that goes slightly slower .

2 iPhone 4S's, white 32GB and black 64GB w/Sprint $129 1400 minute/unlimited data Family plan. With 30% corporate discount comes out to130ish after taxes and add ons.
Many Sprint users are reporting unusable data speeds (basement seems to be 50 Mbps.
Sprint advertises between 600 to 1.4.
I have been fortunate that I average around the minimum of 600 at work and around town.
I was able to parlay the low spectrum results into them waving my $10 dollar per line "premium data service" fee from my bills for the immediate future.
Very happy so far with the new iPhones and Sprint service.
A quantum leap from my experience with tMobile and my JB'd/unlocked 3GS's.

I'm with Vodafone UK with an iPhone 4. At home, without wifi I hardly get 3G connection. Won't be renewing with them next year, I'm coming back to O2.

My college campus is within town centre and even there the speeds aren't reliable. -_-

I would like to see what carrier are people using for their iPhone ? Which iPhone you have ?

Also how is your service ?

I have sprint, 4s and I get great service but Internet can be faster though.
I have the AT&T 4S 64GB black. I am not the biggest fan of AT&T, as with my 3GS it dropped tons of calls in the DC metro area. But I find the reception much better with the 4S and it's new antenna algorithms. I do data much more than talk, though, so I wanted the 14.4 HSPA+, vice EV-DO Rev. A, so I avoided Verizon or Sprint, although I'm a big Sprint fan. My girlfriend has the Sprint 4S and her data is painfully slow.

You know, I'm 100% with you on this...these are the EXACT reasons I stuck with AT&T, begrudgingly, even though I wanted to change carriers and dump them.

How does it compare to the upgrade eligibility in the U.S.? The total value of the low-end model is $650. We get a $450 discount on the device and pay $200. We are eligible for full subsidization every 17 months (single plan) with AT&T. It's every 12 months for the primary account holder on a family plan.
Erm. I'll look into it and give you a more correct answer. o2 occasionally allow cheaper upgrade options, but you still have to pay a lot of money. The UK, since the recession has become extremely expensive. The cost of living has skyrocketed.

Read somewhere that the UK is generally 20% more expensive vs mainland Europe and that was before the recession. Like the price of cars. Course, especially with cars, the net price of houses, food and gas, the same can be said of Canada compared to the US. But then we make it up with health care :)

I have the iPhone 4 with Verizon. Service is great. Internet could be faster but I'm getting used to it. I was with AT&T previously. Our plan is 1400 minutes with 2 grandfathered in unlimited data plans at $30 each and phone insurance on both phone lines. Husband has an Android phone. Our bill with taxes is about $179/month. We get a 20% discount on parts of our service so that helps some with our monthly bill.

My Coworker has Rogers. His data is clearly slower but can really only tell when tethering our laptops.

We have no extra charge to tether. Built into the 6 gig for $30.

Been with AT&T since iPhone 3GS launched then upgrade to iPhone 4.

I only paid no more than $55 because I'm on unlimited TAP. I've no problem with their service ever since. :)

I have sprint. Just switched to iPhone 4s. How do I know what size it is? There were no options. I know it's gotta be like 16gb cause it only had like 14gb free when I first got it. I have 3 lines all unlimited everything for the last year and a half. I've had all co.s and while sprints data is a touch slow, they are the best I've dealt with. IMHO
