    So when my contract is up in Feb I'm considering going to a prepaid plan. I'm fond of the newest phones so I'm not sure this will really work for me... Right now I have the epic touch. The bigger the screen the better. Size does matter.... :D

    I want something that has nationwide coverage (I occasionally travel for work) unlimited data and some cell phone minutes since I don't have a house phone. What's my best bet? Should I check out the large carriers for unlimited prepaid plans? I think I would want to test out the prepaid coverage before I cancel the current plan.

    Is there any way to use the newest fun phones on the prepaid plans? I also go through a lot of data each month. 7Gigs was on my monthly bill from a few months ago.

    Should I just stick with sprint? I probably would only save $20-$40 a month...

    Tmobile has a 50 a month plan that's supposedly unlimited.. BUT.. they limit your bandwidth after the first 200 a month.

    :( I bet I'll be going well over that 200 a month too...

    Your better off sticking with Sprint if you use that much data. I've been with several prepaid carriers and I'm currently with Straight Talk. T-Mobile, Straight Talk, and Simple Mobile will start throttling you after 1-2 gbs and with Straight Talk they will completely cancel your monthly plan if you use more than they like.

    Oh wow! Maybe I should just stay with Sprint! Always on the lookout for a better deal though ;) Maybe I can stay with them and not renew my contract?

    well depending on how much you pay T-mo has a $70 plan for unlimited everything and you get 5gb of 4g after that it is 2g, but if you can stay within the 5gb of 4g you should have fast speeds.
