re: iPhone 4S: Which Carrier Is Best?
Hey one SUPER important thing to keep in mind is data speeds. AT&T utilizes the HSPA+ technology, which works with the iPhone 4s, so the AT&T 4s is 2-4 times faster than either of the other carriers. I have personally clocked mine at 5 MBPS. Verizon and sprint might get 1-2

It's also worth mentioning that if you have the unlimited texting plan with AT&T you also get unlimited calls to any mobile phone regardless of carrier.

Thanks for the straight-up comparison, but you got something wrong. Sprint actually does offer the option to use your phone for 3G/4G data, what you call a "tethering plan", for $29.95/mo. It's called Sprint Mobile Hotspot. I know because I add it to my plan when I travel, and remove it when I return. Sprint will pro-rate it so you effectively pay a daily rate. Sweet, and very convenient.
