Each service and provider has there own unique thing about them. Do they have a device you want and can afford? Do they offer the features you are looking for? Are you signing a contract, or month to month? All of the things come into play, just like if your picking out a new or used car. Does it have everything you want for the price you are willing or can pay? AT&T provides usually unlimited possibilities. From the phones they offer, to the plans you can choose. But how much does all that cost? I'm not by any means bashing them, just saying are they trying to offer everything can to everyone? Same thing with Verizon which is CDMA. One thing I have found that has been blowing up is Straight Talk. They offer GSM and CDMA. They offer $45 unlimited talk, text, and data. Too good to be true, I know I thought so. I have been using Straight talk for about 4 months now. I can say I have been nothing but impressed. Straight Talk offers options, from the phone you want to a few choices on which plan you want to pay. And any one who has ever used AT&T and Verizon will be familiar with their coverage. The one and huge thing I like about Straight Talk is the option to choose my phone. I am currently using their GSM sim card capability. I just went to their website www.straighttalk.com and order what best works for you from the plan to the sim card. If you chose to go with the straight talk sim card, make sure you have a GSM device to put the sim card into. Any AT&T, T-Mobile, or GSM unlocked phone. I am currently using an AT&T iPhone 5. Now i had to cut down my sim card, which I don't suggest doing unless you know what you need on your sim card. They do offer a micro sim, but not the nano sim yet for the iPhone 5. Cell Phone Repair in Fort Smith Arkansas Now if your going to choose the AT&T compatible sim card through Straight Talk, there are a couple of additional things you will need to know and do. One is if you choose a Android phone, all you have to do is change the APN settings. I will tell you how to do that little later. Second is you are going to use an iPhone you might want to jailbreak it. This way you can use the iPhone's full functionality. When you jailbreak it you are allowing third party features that you will not get without jailbreaking. And that will allow you to change the APN settings. Changing APN settings is not hard, but it can be confusing. Android phones are the easiest to change and modify the APN settings. About 90% of Android phones you go into settings, Wireless and network, mobile networks, APN settings. Then you hit the menu button and select add new APN. Then it depends on which provider you are using, the best website I have found that covers every provider out there ishttp://www.unlockit.co.nz/
