Default Going from iphone 4s + Sprint to Note 2 + AT&T

Any reason not to?

I'm still new to the world of smartphones, plans, who has what features etc. All I know is I'm paying Sprint for a service that doesn't allow me to use certain features because I'm trapped in 3G world (my location anyway) while everyone else is on 4G and streaming whatever they please.

On the phone switch, I used my buddies Note 2 the other day and my 4s doesn't hold a candle to it. I think I could even dump my ipad with a screen that size and clarity.

Thoughts guys? TIA...

Everday I carry a 4s on sprint, a verizon note 2, and a verizon LTE ipad. I don't touch my ipad no need to have note.

Went from an avid Sprint supporter since the Epic 4G. To the Note II with AT&T, don't miss a day of it, or their slow network speeds.

I'm kind of surprised to hear that - their network must be in better shape here. My buddies note 2 on AT&T flew where Sprint is just meh at best.

Verizon is a mixed bag for me. Great service/best discount through company yet highest cost on data charges.

AT&T = a little more money, great service in my area, but lower overall data costs.

I guess note 2 is perfect if you want a big phone. Else there is the Droid DNA (slightly smaller phone with a 1080p display):

Either is great i believe.

Thanks for that comparison vid Danny! That DNA...I'm going to have to look into that. I never thought 1080p would be a feature I would want in a phone.

Oh, never heard the term "phablet" before either

I believe the high end phones of this year will all come with 1080p screens, which is why i mentioned the DNA (which would mean you have a feature that all the "super" phones also will have).

But tbh i know NOTHING of the price on the DNA and how it compares to the note2 (cheaper? more expensive?) since there is no such thing as the DNA in sweden

DNA is verizon's name tag for the variant. If you wanted the butterfly which is the gsm variant as ATT doesn't have one you will have to buy the gsm version. You could also buy a verizon dna and use it on ATT but you will not get ATT LTE.
