Best US iPhone 6 contract

I'm getting an iPhone 6 as my next phone. Currently on Sprint but they've just come bottom in another survey lol! So what's the best US carrier for the iPhone 6 in terms of value for money, reliability, customer service?

There is no best US carrier. Every single carrier has their advantages and disadvantages. US carriers are all rated differently with different charges for cellular access. iPhone is the same price on all carriers - the only difference is how you would like to pay for it. 12/24/30 month, 1-year, 2-year agreement. Are you buying or are you leasing? Leasing is the same as car lease, you need to return phone at the end of your leasing agreement in acceptable condition (no cracked screens).

T-Mobile -> Sprint -> ATT -> Verizon
T-Mobile being the worst and offering lowest access monthly fee for their service. Sprint is slightly better and more expensive. Verizon and ATT are usually same price. Keep in mind that iPhone will cost the same on either one of them. iPhone doesn't get discounts.

If you are happy with Sprint and their $50/month all you can use plan I see no reason changing to something else. ATT and Verizon will charge you more for same usage access. If you are unhappy with Spring customer service you can choose either of the three remaining. If you are unhappy with Sprint coverage or data speeds you must go with ATT or Verizon.

Figure out how would you like to pay for your iPhone. Do you want to get a new phone every 12 month, 24 month or you would like to keep your phone at the end of the contract?

Note: There is also Boost mobile that uses Sprint network. I never used them and don't know how good they are. They are cheaper than Sprint.

[EDIT] No contract, but get iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the never-never: for $0 down starting at $25 per month with AT&T. But wait, oops - that deal is over 30 month. That means the iPhone 8 will be old news when you're still paying for the iPhone 6. http://www.att.com/wireless/iphone/ <= 24 months options available, also.
And AT&T did fairly well in PCMag's study in June regarding 4G/LTE coverage etc...
