The iPhone 5s and 5c launch in less than 24 hours from now, which means you are likely thinking long and hard about buying your next iPhone. Besides which iPhone model you want to buy, the next most important question you need to ask yourself is which carrier should I choose. Some of you are not going to switch as you have too many friends and family on the same network.

You’d think that with Samsung launching their brand new flagship handset, the Galaxy S4, that it would eat into Apple’s U.S. market share, right? Well, you’d be wrong. According to the bean counters at comScore, roughly 39.2% of all smartphone owners in the United States owned an iPhone in April. That’s up from 37.8% in January.
