Verizon, AT&T, Sprint iPhone 4S speed comparison

If you have been waiting on news of the best network speeds to help you decide which operator to switch to, iDownload Blog has done the work for you, although your geographical location needs to be considered too. Amongst the three, Sprint seems to be disappointing its users, while AT&T and Verizon are doing much better.

iPhone 5 on Sprint?

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Sprint customers, it’s time to raise a glass! Bloomberg reports that you can officially get iPhone 5 on Sprint (yes, no more jail breaking) Sprint is planning to offer Apple’s iPhone 5 next month with unlimited data at a flat fee. If you are a heavy Netflix or a Pandora user like me, then this is going to be a sweet deal. Since Sprint is trying to differentiate itself from its arch enemies AT&T and Verizon, I’m pretty sure the flat fee will be a competitive price! 

AT&T and Verizon charge $69.99 for unlimited voice plans. AT&T charges $15 for 200 megabytes, $25 for 2 gigabytes and $45 for 4 gigabytes of data while Verizon’s rates are $30 for 2 gigabytes and $80 for 10 gigabytes of data. 

Sprint’s arrival into the iPhone world is a welcome change for us customers. We may stop paying through our noses for surfing on our phones.

Wow, 5 years later and the iPhone finally makes it to 3 out of the 4 major US carriers 😉

Unlimited data on 4G would even be sweeter but I doubt that will happen with the iPhone 5. Would you really buy a new phone, something that you’ll use for at least 1-2 years and still surf on 3G? There are quite number of powerful Android devices on Sprint such as the Nexus S and EVO (4G & 3D) that allows for you to surf at 4G speeds. 

There are also rumors that T-Mobile will be getting the iPhone 5 as well, but it’s all speculation at this point. Who knows, hopefully the iPhone will be available across all carriers soon. That way when Android still dominates, Apple Girl can’t use the it’s not a fair playing field excuse 😉
