New mobile service: AT&T or Verizon?

While I’ve had Sprint since forever, I’m in the process of reviewing other options.   Sure I’ve got “unlimited” data, but I’ve been paying the $10 extra for WiMax, but I’ve only used it a handful of times at best.  I have to pay more money to enable Wi-Fi tethering on my HTC Evo.

I don’t have strong (Sprint) cell service where I live; I was shocked to see how much better AT&T was. 

And then there’s the weird software roaming glitch I encountered when I went downtown to DC.  The EVO up and died in 3G, giving “Network error” but 4G worked fine when it was available.   To clear the error, I had to cold boot my phone.

However, both AT&T and Verizon have the whole data cap thing – which seems to defeat the purpose of having LTE in the first place.   And Verizon has had considerable hiccups with the operation of its LTE network.

Soo…I don’t know. I’ve been pleased with the AT&T 3G data service on my Apple iPad and it was a treat to be able to swap out SIM cards (see www.dougontech.com) in Iceland to enable 3G service out of the U.S. Going to LTE is likely to cause all kinds of weirdness should I have to travel overseas.
