    How spotty is the data connection on net10?

    I have two iPhone 4's that I am about to switch from ST(T-Mobile) to Net10(AT&T) because T-Mobile hasn't refarmed enough towers in my area and I'm sick of EDGE/2G data.

    But... I have started seeing reports on here of Net10 customers having really bad data connections on their phones. (data cutting in and out, slow download speeds, etc)

    Is this a widespread problem? If so, I think I'll just bite the bullet and go with a more expensive carrier with consistent data.

    Thanks again in advance!

    I have an Incredible on ST and got excellent data speeds in NC, SC, & FL. Don't think twice.

    Getting your data reduced or cut off is a huge problem. There are people who can walk on Glass. They are unpredictable. GoPhone all your services will work and with the %10 savings in many places its only about $6 more a month

    That's exactly what I ended up doing, and I'm so glad I did. Data, MMS, and everything else work perfectly.

    What 10% discount are you referring to?

    FWIW, I haven't had any issues with throttling nor coverage nor speeds in any of the states I've been in, as long as I have good signal.

    I saw an (unverified) post that said that Net10 was dropping the hard 1.5GB cap, as well.
