    If you exclude at&t's MVNOs and the cumbersome task of unlocking 2 Windows Phones, 1 iPhone, and a feature phone, and moving them to a MVNO - our best bet is AT&T. Unfortunately, no one else has 3g where I live.
    My Focus Flash is not unlocked and I am on Straight Talk. I can do everything including MMS with my phone. The iPhone would need to be jailbroken but not unlocked to be on StraightTalk.

    you don't have to unlock your phones for Straight Talk. You just buy the ATT compatible SIMs and go.

    I've been dodging through hoops with prepaid for a year now. It was very nice at first but got tired of the hassle. Boyfriend wanted an iPhone and H2O wireless went from 2 GB to 1 GB within 2 months of his service for data caps. He didn't know about Straight Talk so we just went to AT&T with his iPhone 4. Perk for him: He gets to upgrade to the 5 when it's released this year for the new customer price

    I have my wireless bill combined with my U-verse bill. Wireless is 400 minutes 5gb data Unlimited text and mobile to mobile. U-verse I got U450, Max Turbo DSL and Voice Unlimited. On top of the combined discount I get 19% off my wireless portion through my employer. I pay around $350 a month.

    Yeah, H2O wireless went downhill. After what they did, they lost a lot of customers to Red Pocket.

    Its mainly because their a smaller carrier, therefore care for customers more than the likes of T-Mobile UK or Vodafone. Their growing, though.

    And, due to our GSM networks making more sense than US counterparts, we can get a cheap unlocked phone and give the carriers the finger if they p*ss off the customers. Its quite funny. I was on Tmobile before, and I was limited to GPRS service, plus 500mb of data. Then I joined Three and brought a Radar to replace my BlackBerry and I get 3 bar HSPA+ with Unlimited Data. Ah, the advantages of better tariffs.

    no, actually it is more like you have real competition there. We live in a duopoly for all intents and purposes. Straight Talk is making a stab at real competition though. Still, what would be about $25 US is just stellar.

    Yeah, they actually have choices there--not just in regards to carriers--but service plans too. Like I've noticed some of their plans have 1000 text messages, others have 3000 or 5000.

    Here, let's use AT&T as an example. You get two choices, pay-per-use at $0.20 a message, or unlimited for $20. That's it. No in between. And for data? 300MB or 3GB. For some people, 300MB is too little, but 3GB is too much. So really, a lot of people are overpaying for services because carriers like AT&T give us a poor selection of plans and packages.

    This. But why are plans so expensive? For the plan I get here, over there I would have to pay up the best part of 30 a month. The American consumer have let the carriers out of control... Like the corporations, but we only have yourselves to blame for not cutting them down or stunting them when there was a chance to in the late 90's & early 00's.

    Edit: sorry, I signed into my old account. I'm BBR.

    Well I think part of the higher cost is because devices are subsidized and networks have to cover a much larger area, but other than that, I think it's just because people don't know any better. Americans are just not aware of how much more they're paying for service compared to Europeans.
