So I'm getting married in less than 3 months. My fiance has Sprint and I'm thinking of joining her plan to save money and to only have 1 phone bill as opposed to 2. I currently have ATT and I have the iphone 3GS (I know, ancient) but I like sprint better mainly because of the unlimited data plan. So my dilemma is should I get the iphone 4s or the samsung galaxy s2 epic? I've been reading a lot about these phones and quite frankly most of these tech language sounds foreign to me so baby tech talk would be appreciated. lol. Thanks guys.

Get the Iphone if you want your phone dumbed down. Get an Android if you want to get the most out of your phone. I've had both and that's the best way I can explain it.

No question, iPhone easily. Look at the customer satisfaction for iPhones compared to Andrioids which always have problems. iPhone always wins... Amazing phone, zero problems.

If your going to Sprint, get the Galaxy.

If it was ATT, I'd say the iphone (I switched from tmobile to ATT and in the process went from android to the iPhone and its the best decision i've made with phones).


The one thing I hear about sprint and its iphones, is that even with the unlimited data, the phone doesn't run nearly as fast as on carriers.

^ Yep, after you reach 2GB, they start throttling your data.


FYI, new iPhone should be announced around summer. I am waiting for that..

AT&T runs the iPhone fastest cuz it uses hspa+ unlike the sprint and Verizon versions. Sprint is true unlimited and doesn't throttle it's actually AT&T that throttles the few still with unlimited plans.

I prefer AT&T because of the boost in speed since I never use more than 2GB a month. I always have a wifi connection around me anyways.
