Looking for a great 4G phone (open to any OS) with a good battery life

Also, should I pre pay, part pay (monthly installments) or enter a contract?

Preferences between ATT and T-mobile?

It's a bit hard to answer, as you have left it pretty wide open.

First, you need to decide your budget, as that makes the most difference. Do you want to spend $500? $200?

There are a lot of good phones in the $250-$400 range, but again it depends on how much you want to spend and whether you are comfortable with used vs new.

As for AT&T vs. T-Mobile, again it depends. Where are you located? If you are in a major city and do not go out into the boonies much, I'd say T-Mobile (I am on TMO). Their plans cannot be beat, their Customer Service is awesome, and they have pretty much any phone you want. AT&T will give you better coverage generally, but they are also more expensive, especially for data.

Here are a few examples of T-Mobile phones, from most expensive to least:

1. iPhone6 or 6S - Anywhere from $526 to $800+ dpeending on configuration. There are some good installment plans going on right now, including the $15/month deal.

2. Samsung Galaxy S6 - 128GB version can be had for as little as $580, plus Samsung will reimburse for installment payments for the rest of this year, up to $120. Again, a good deal.

3. LG G4 - $480 - Solid phone for a good price.

4. Used Lg G2 - $130 - People swear by this phone. It's not the latest and greatest, but it's been a favorote of lots on these forums. It's a good phone at a good price.

There's lots others, but it depends on what is important to you. Larger screen? High memory? Best battery? Again, it all depends.

Hope this helps!

I'm considering porting my line from sprint to at&t and doing the NEXT program and purchase an iphone. Right now, ATT gives you $300 credit for porting a number, buying a new device on NEXT and then trading in a device that has at least a $10 value. i believe once you get your credits (might be 3 months) you can just pay off the NEXT phone if you want.
