Wednesday Poll: Who is Your Current Wireless Carrier?

It’s that time of year again, where we check-in to see which wireless carrier you are all currently signed up with.

When we asked this same question almost a year ago, 60% of you were still with Verizon, while T-Mobile had managed to attract almost 20% of the community. AT&T, Sprint, and various prepaid options made up the other 20% or so. With T-Mobile still making Uncarrier moves, AT&T attempting to copy match them offer-by-offer, and a variety of prepaid options posting insanely good monthly deals, we want to know if Verizon is still holding onto your business.

After voting, be sure to tell us why you are where you are. Is it all about coverage? Pricing? What?

So what’s new? The only “new” feature is Google’s anti-theft protection for Android, which forces users to login to their Google’s accounts even after factory resetting.
