I had the same experience back when I had the HTC Hero. The newer phones (Samsung Galaxy S3) are faster on 3G, and LTE much faster too.

The coverage was great (better than T-Mobile in some instances) but it was only good for voice/text since data was so slow.

I wonder if this phone will get OTA updates. The ST GS2 is still on GB I believe. Most carriers now have the GS3 on 4.1.2. My GS3 that I had on TM just got the OTA update to 4.1.2 even though I ported it over to net10 a month ago.
