At the dawn of automobile mass-production, Henry Ford famously said of his Model T: "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Until recently, the iPhone was in its Model T era. You could customize it with different apps and cases, but any customer could get any iPhone so long as the data provider was AT&T.

No more. Now everyone has a choice -- AT&T, and as of last Thursday, Verizon. But which is the best? To find out, Compare and Contrast studied the phone companies' data plans, assessed their prices and looked at their customer service rankings. All information is current as of Feb. 9. Prices are subject to change.
