Sure, Verizon is "evil"... but T-mobile is pretty much dead - DT 
(T-mobile's parent company) is selling to AT&T (which is just as "evil" 
as Verizon).  Sprint is just barely getting better in Customer Service 
than it was 5 years ago.

In my opinion between AT&T, Verizon, Sprint...  it isn't much of a 
choice.  Pick your which you don't like the least.  The regional 
carriers may have some Android phones.  They will not be as powerful as 
the prime carrier's selection, but at least they may not burn through 
your wallet as quickly.
