Galaxy Note 2 with Straight Talk

I'm using boost mobile paying $55 before tax Shrinkage plan... I really want the galaxy note 2 and i've read that you can use att note 2 on straight talk with the compatible sim. My question is I live between Sarasota - Fort Myers Florida and was wondering if I should go with the T-mobile version or att.. I use the internet allot mainly for looking up things not gaming or streaming I also know there will be no 4G only HSPA or edge. So what would be the best network and phone? att or t-mob I've heard allot of bad things about the network speed with the international unlocked version so most likely I wont get that version..

does anyone have the knowledge on how to reset my motorola atrix hg to the correct internet specs?

I recently moved to Italy from the U.S.A., and had my phone unlocked to use over here. It is currently running on 4.1.1 software, I have WIND service, it is unlocked from At&t, and I am not able to access the internet outside of wi-fi, access MMS, or anything else that correlates to using the internet. the huge kicker is that my phone now has a SIM toolkit, which is all in Italian, which I don't speak. When I try and access a MMS, it prompts me to check my MMS APN configuration in mobile network settings, and that messages cannot be received until the data connection is restored. Is there anyone out there who can help! Thanks for any input!

Agonizing over Droid Razr Maxx HD From Droid X

Agonizing over Droid Razr Maxx HD...
I would be going from Droid X. I Read alot and have music downloads too. I sell on eBay, I do alot of emailing and surfing. I run with the kids to and from one event or another and take care of an elderly parent, all this doesn't leave me with time to do much else. Such as try out a new phone....
I Love my DROID X!! But, tis time to go for the upgrade.
I could list all of the pros, and there are quite a few... but let me just say that the Razr has a proven track record and Motorola has surpassed first class in durability.
