    A smartphone is not so smart if you can not reach your data. I moved to at&t and now have a good to great signal strength just about everywhere. They have a great balance between price and performance — I went with GoPlan and a Nexus4 phone. No charge to start service and no charge for the SIM card. They set it up at the company store. Before getting a carrier, ask other people how good their service is in the same area you will be using the phone. So far, at&t has provided a good experience in places I travel. T-Mobile – sorry :(
    Yes, I know it varies where you live, but I am on the coast of California and should have had more signal from T-Mobile — Calif. is very techie ya know.
