    Can someone tell me the leading cell phone providers (in order) around the LA area? I'm sure the top companies are Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc...but I'm looking for them in order of usage. (I'm moving to the area soon and want to make sure I make the right choice!)

    If you have that info, please send it my way.

    Thanks. :)

    Most cell carriers, like T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon will have great coverage around the LA area. There are some areas, however, where one carrier definitely beats the other, so it would be wise to sign up with a new carrier once you move into the area, because in some neighborhod's one carrier's signal might be almost zero, where a different carrier has full service.
    Most carriers will, though, overall give you great coverage in the LA area.
