U.S. carrier customer service report card

A recent study by Tom's Guide examined the online, social media, and phone support of the major carriers in the U.S. and ranked them based on their performance. AT&T came out on top overall, followed by Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile.

Boost Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T tied their social media support scores, while AT&T edged in the top spot for online support. T-Mobile and AT&T tied phone support scores, though metroPCS boasts the shortest average support call time at 3:40.

The study was conducted by asking "how do I get photos off my smartphone?" and "how do I change my data plan?" through a variety of channels and times of day. If these rankings do anything to convince you to switch, here you can find plans from Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T
