    I’m on the fence, I get fine service with AT&T and Verizon is offering nothing too different. What’s the advantage to use either? For me this will come down to price unless there some is significant feature on one side or the other. I like the idea of Wireless Hotspot directly from iPhone, that may sway me if anything.
