I'm on AT&T, and it's just the worst. But I'm still on it because my dad's job gives out a 20% discount on our bill and well...we can't leave that behind. lmao

I'm with EE. I'm quite content with it. It's a fairly new company created via a merge between T-Mobile and Orange. Also the first company to offer 4G.

I'm on Vodafone on my private Phone, and on T-Mobile on my work Phone, so all I don't have is KPN, but I hate them, anyway.

Since Metro PCS is one of those more-known providers in the USA, I've decided to add it. Also, if I see more results for international carriers (such as Virgin (US/UK), Vodaphone, or Rogers (Canada)), I'll add those as well.

For me, I use AT&T's GoPhone service since I don't know a whole lot of people where I would communicate with them by phone.

Happy Halloween!

It's bad because its Sprint honey.

I currently use Verizon, because thats what my family is on, and what we get discounts on because of my dads job. I love their 4G and coverage, much greater than AT&T. I get 4G out in nowhere, where AT&T hardly gets 2G.
Though I might switch once I start my own life, and move to GSM because of slightly more freedom. Or stick with Verizon until they change, give it 2 years.

What is Metro PCS? I have never ever heard of it nor have I seen a single commercial about it. I have never seen a Metro PCS store or any phones/plans for sale by them in any major retail/electronic store such as Wal-Mart or Best Buy. I also don't personally know anyone that has them as their carrier. I'm just saying, I don't know how more-known Metro PCS really is in the USA...
However I do know some people that have Virgin Mobile. Virgin Mobile is one of the two prepaid carriers that are part of Sprint, which is contract only. The other prepaid carrier is Boost Mobile, which a few people I know have as well. I have seen commercials for both and they are for sale in major retail/electronic stores all over the country so I think VM and BM are more known compared to Metro PCS.
I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

I'm on Verizon. I've been on Verizon for a long time but in June 2012 I switched to Sprint and they cancelled my contract in January 2013 due to lack of coverage.

Verizon has amazing coverage but they're expensive. I get a 15% discount with work but... meh. Also, I don't like how they lock down the bootloaders of their phones but meh.

T-Mobile. I've always been pretty happy with them, so I don't think I'll be changing anytime soon.

I'm surprised Virgin Mobile isn't on there. It's who I go with, because their prepaid plans are rather reasonable.

I usually use Telkomsel as my cell provider because it has wide coverage, and I have been using that service for years.

I have Verizon Wireless. Where I live in northern Wisconsin there are only 3 cell phone providers that work. The first one is Cellcom, which is only offered in Wisconsin, but uses other major carrier towers. However the service is still not as good and they don't have the best selection of phones. AT&T also works, but not as good as Verizon and the customer service is HORRIBLE. With Verizon I'm able to contact staff by email, phone, and even instant message through the website. The service is absolutely amazing and like I said even works where I am which is a few hours from the Canadian border. I have a contract, but even if I wanted prepay Verizon it does not work up here. Some people don't realize that prepay services offered by contract companies don't always have the exact same service and if there are busy days the contract users have priority over the prepay phones and those will be slowed down first. The price is not the best, but it's not a rip off for today, depending on what you want.

I have Verizon and I can easily say that it is by far the best cell provider that I have ever had. With the others, I cannot get any service at my house at all, but I have nearly max bars at all time with Verizon. The biggest downside is the expense as Verizon tends to be a bit more, but I guess that you get what you pay for so it is totally worth it.

I have T-Mobile, although It's actually really a part of EE with Orange. I used to be part of 3 but they didn't carry the phone I wanted (Huawei Y300). They seem to be better value than 3 so far.

T-Mobile here! It's okay but I don't really care for my cell phone much.. it's dead a lot of the time. Pretty sure we had Verizon before but switched over for reasons I can't recall.

I use Rogers for my phone. It's a decent provider. It's fun to argue with them to get them to give us a better deal. xD

I've been on AT&T before it was even called AT&T! I think it was previously known as Cingular Wireless... Oh well. I've been on AT&T for a while and I haven't thought once about switching. Hopefully AT&T doesn't do anything that'll tick me off, though.

My cell phone service provider is Virgin Mobile, which is a subsidiary of Bell Canada. Although, admittedly, I don't use it all that often. I really don't have much use for phones. I regard them as a necessary inconvenience.

I haven't even heard of half of these. Where I live AT&T pretty much dominates the market. It's either AT&T or Verizon or some ****** Tracfone. I just follow the crowd.

I have AT&T for my cell service, but I rarely use my cell phone for anything these days, but for emergency calls when I'm not at home or anywhere with internet.
