iPhones still work on 2G. Perfect for when going to China.

You mean 1 line that's unlimited? Yes, it's $100.

I had unlimited back then with Cingular/AT&T (like 2010), but after monitoring my monthly usage, I noticed I was wasting money on unlimited. I was skating by on 200mb/month, so I decreased my limit to save money

Went to Verizon to try a Galaxy Nexus, ended up being the worst smartphone I've ever had. By the time I went back to AT&T, they already ditched unlimited. Who knew I'd use so much data now, and I don't stream movies or anything.

Sprint looks to be less expensive $ wise during their 1st year promo pricing, but if you factor in taxes and fees, it's probably same price as Tmobile or maybe even a little more.

Plus, Tmobile has a few extra features others don't like free 1 hour of data usage and unlimited texting on flights via GoGo, unlimited 2G data roaming for rest of world, Tmobile Tuesday, and taxes/fees included in their price (what you see is what you pay).
Wow I should have priced shopped. I'm on a family plan, so it's still cheaper for me to be on AT&T, but I will consider T-Mobile in the future

Cheaper than AT&T for 1 line ($100 AT&T vs $80 Verizon) and 3 lines ($180 AT&T vs $162 Verizon), but same for 2 lines and 4 lines.

But Tmobile still least expensive overall, unless I'm missing something.

If you just need 1 line, Sprint (even after adding taxes/fees) might be least expensive or about the same as Tmobile, but Sprint also gives you less features.

My bad, I was thinking out loud and only comparing Verizon and AT&T. I thought about jumping to T-Mo a while back, but noticed my buddies having issues with coverage in certain areas... but that was a while ago.
