Baton Rouge OTers: Make your case for either AT&T or Verizon



I'm getting on my own plan this summer and I'm getting so sick of being on Sprint. They are terrible and make my blood pressure go up too high sometimes...

Anyone have Verizon or AT&T and can recommend one over the other?

Some points I'm looking at:
-COVERAGE
-Speed of Internet
-Speed of texting/MMS
-Price/Contract Options
-And lastly, phone selection

TIA

I have both a Blackberry on Verizon and an Android on ATT.

ATT sucks balls

AT&T is garbage in Baton Rouge. No Service pops up on the top left of my iphone all the time.

Ooh... My lady is wanting to stick with AT&T... but she might not know better. Isn't Verizon less expensive too?

Where to begin... Next to no service in my house, takes days to send media messages, calls drop daily, text messages get stuck in sending purgatory and people end up getting pissed at me, and I'm the only white guy I know on Sprint. It's the worst.

ETA: And don't say it's just my phone because this has been the case on almost 5 phones.

AT&T never works for me in or near the stadium on game days. That's reason enough to drop them right there! If I wasn't in a family plan, I would have already switched.

Is Verizon prepaid on the same towers as regular Verizon? Is the only difference not being to have the latest phone?

Geez... a lot of bad news from AT&T customers... any critiques of Verizon? Or is it all a beautiful walk in the park?

My Sister lives on Toledo Bend. She switched to Verizon and has been happy with it. AT&T's signal on the north end of the lake where she lives in virtually non-existent. I live in B. R. so it usually works for me.

iPhone I'm guessing? I had the same issue on AT&T. Now that I have a Lumia 920, I can call, text, and surf the web at games.

That has nothing to do with iPhone vs lumia. More likely you had an iPhone of a generation before the 5... Which means no LTE. Now that you can connect to LTE you can utilize that network. I was at the Alabama game this year sending pictures texts and videos from the stadium over ATT LTE with my iPhone.
