Im planing to buy a prepaid phone with a good coverage in data and texting and preferibly unlimited calls... i want a touchscreen and I was considering to stay with ATT (no need for haters.. I have att since 2004 and never had problems with it) and buy a samsung PRIME or move to virgin mobile and buy a Rumor Touch.I already have an ipod touch so I dont need much in a phone other than the ability to use facebook and stuff... im looking for good reception, good phone, quality texting (not like metro PCS)

Me:
Im a text psycho
I surf on the internet a lot
I talk a lot but i can control it a bit


Pros virgin:
50 monthly
unlimited text, data and 1,200 mins

pros att
60 monthly
unlimited calling
have to add 20 dollars more for dat...

the text is good. no delayed text like boost. the data is decent. its not the greatest but its worth the price. from what i have seen and i could be wrong but the data speed all depends on the device. i know some of the devices are 2g and some are 3g.

The biggest thing I always think of with a phone is if it gets reception, you know att works. If you want to, I would test drive Virgin.

Its the -LG- Prime, not samsung. Just saying in case your basing it on your experience with samsung.
