ok I dont know if this a problem in Chicago but in Texas it sometimes matters what service provider you know because of coverage issues. Some are better in certain areas of the state.

Right now we are using sprint but I have really strong feelings of disdain towards Sprint so I would really like to switch providers when my contract runs out this Summer.

Any suggestions on service providers I should go with?

I like AT&T phones.

Well you know what? I already have written my thoughts on the subject in at least one of those threads I linked.
Maybe you should look at those threads.

If you are going to be so lazy that you cannot search the forum;I am going to be lazy when I write my responses to your posts.

I thought the links that were provided above are the best info your going to get.

I have sprint and am very happy with it. My gf has AT&T and in our last apartment she couldnt get service at all. A friend of mine has Verizon and has trouble with service as well. I think it really depends though.

Unfortunately, it all really depends. First off, if you have an apartment in the basement of a large building, you will probably have problems with whatever kind of service you get. My friend can't even use his cell phone in his apartment.

I have had Verizon, which was awesome. I changed my service to T Mobile because my girlfriend could talk to me for free with it. It is also very good. Either one I have no complaints about.

I cannot say much about AT&T though.

Really? Like the President who at least mentions the hard work we all have ahead of us and that we all should pitch in and help out?

Socialism looks good on paper but it doesnt work.
