To stick around, my buddy recently got a TMO Mytouch 3G.

And his data speeds continually trump mine with VZW. Also it may be I’ve never had an Android phone and he’s always showing me some new cool app that cost next to nothing or was free.
Not to mention the Mytouch 3g, for it’s size is a pretty sweet device and it’s touch screen is really nice better than any of the LG’s I’ve owned.
I know, I know TMO doesn’t have nearly the coverage as VZW but I’d say there just as reliable and their data package is $5 cheaper.

What is so hard? What is making you stay? Just ask yourself what is important to you for your phone, then make a decision.

I wouldn't even boather. When you leave the 3G area you will be stucked with there EDGE or GPRS. They still have lots of areas with GPRS data only... I would just wait and choose from one of Verizon 4 Android phones.

This shows how much you know Tmobile. Tmobile's network is all EDGE/UMTS. If a tower is not 3G, it is at least EDGE...

Right... because where I live, my friends with T-Mo can only pick up GPRS in our town until they get into the city. Then they will pick up on EDGE. Then if they go to Huntsville they get 3G.

Woah, I'd simmer down with that sucking 6 months from now stuff. I just might be BLAZING along with a LTE 4G USB modem from Verizon in 6 months. You never know. I live in Las Vegas, this city just might be among the first 25-30 cities to get 4G.

Verizon Cellular rulez and you know it!

It beats out AT&T Cellular, Sprint Cellular, and T-Mobile Cellular because Verizon Cellular's 3G cellular network is the nation's largest cellular network. So there you go!

If your so verizon, why dont you change your name to verizon instead of ATnT?

Verizon is large in CDMA, but AT&T has the largest GSM in the U.S. GSM is where ill be staying.

I've never understood the reason for these types of posts. They do nothing but start people bickering back and forth about which carrier is better and why. Don't like Verizon? Just go to TMobile. They're probably fine. Why do you have to come here and state your intention like it matters to someone? No one cares.

Android coming to VZW! Shocked

Google and Verizon Wireless plan to hold a joint press conference Tuesday morning on the eve of the CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment Show, they announced late Monday night.

Details were scarce, and a Google representative declined to comment on the nature of the conference. But given the timing and participants--Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam--it seems the companies are ready to talk about plans for Google's Android mobile operating system.
