Take the Talk Mobile Carriers survey for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy Gift Card!

With carrier week of Talk Mobile done, it's time for another survey, because darnit, we love numbers here. The survey will let us pull together the numbers to put together more awesome infographics like the ones we've done for gaming and keyboards. Carriers week was full of awesome, including lots of sage and common sense advice on how to make the carriers into organizations that don't come across as so consumer-hostile.

So here is the carriers week survey - it's a few dozen questions so it shouldn't take too long. They're all multiple choice, and there's no right answer to any of them, so we don't want you to feel like you should be stressing out on whether or not you're going to pass. To sweeten the pot a bit, we're also throwing in a $100 Best Buy gift card to one lucky survey-taker. We've got your attention now, eh?

Click here to take the Talk Mobile State of Mobile Carriers Survey!
