Straight talk is a great value for someone who doesn't use a lot of data, quite a savings in comparison to a post-paid AT&T plan, and you still get the same network. I'd definitely recommend them over Sprint.

said by gballer :I was on Sprint for 2 years, and couldn't wait to leave their dial-up speeds. In order to make a comparison, this is what I tell people: Imagine having a river of water (unlimited data from Sprint) that you have to suck through a straw. It's going to be impossible and unpleasant to suck that river dry through a straw, and you're probably going to give up. Now, imagine a 55 gal. drum (a normal network from anybody BUT Sprint), and trying to suck the water through a 2" PVC pipe. It's not going to take long to suck that drum dry, is it?
Yeah I said the same thing when I was on AT&T..
2 years of dial up speeds on Sprint and I'm now back on AT&T but through Straight Talk..
Offering unlimited on dialup probably isnt very hard.
My cousin recently came over to my house with his Sprint iPhone. I asked him to download the Speedtest app. Well, on Sprint's network he waited several minutes and it wouldn't complete the download. Finally, when he hooked up to my wi-fi, it downloaded almost instantly. He finally got to do his speed test. After a long server response, he finally got 160kbps download. For comparison, I tested USCC's 3G on my Android. I got an instant server response, and 1200kbps. Then he asked me if I knew how he could get out of his Sprint contract. I just laughed!!
I will never trust Sprint again, 4G or no 4G!!
