OK, looking for a US carrier...
1.) Must Run GSM, because, you know, we'd like to sell this in countries other than the US without creating billions of versions of the hardware.
I pick... AT&T and... T-Mobile....
2.) Must have a strong nationwide presence.
3.) Must have data capacity that is compatible with world standards.
That leaves.. AT&T, sorry T-Mobile (to small, and wrong data spectrum).
So, we get... AT&T. Which really sucks.
