    So I was at work bragging to the cell phone guy how metro is getting the s3 and talked about maybe swapping to straight talk sim and getting a good phone for it. I was curious about speeds on the networks though and had him install and run the speed test app. I'm currently getting on a good day about 4down,5 up.

    ...He got 9 down, almost 12 up. Consistently. If straight talk sim has the same speeds, making the swap would almost be a no brainer. Thoughts?

    ST's restrictions make their data useless.

    Let me ask you what notices you noticed I stream netflix plus music all day long no issues and all I get is 3-4 sometimes 4-5 and don't worry about caps or restrictions

    Yup exactly as he said. Damn I dont know what example or analogy to make up lol. But its like having a pedal bike that could be rode as long as you can, compared to bringing a motor cycle that is almost like multiple time faster but your told by the company oh it will blow up if you go beyond 2 miles a day. So I know chazz is promoiting Straighttalk for good, but in my opinion that is a bs company just as Att.
