Network coverage: depends on which phone or sim card kit you purchase. This can be on a CDMA networks like Verizon and Sprint or GSM netowrks like AT&T and T-Mobile's networks. As far a the phone models go the best way to tell if a phone is CDMA or GSM is the the last letter of the phone model. CDMA models end with a 'C' and GSM models a 'G' the only models that don't use this letter at the end are the Nokia phones and they are all GSM.
The phone handsets range in price with the least expensive phones lacking in some modern Internet features, to the Nokia and Samsung, LG and other Android OS phones that have full 3G and application support.
All the phones that have 3G data are able to watch youtube apart from the Samsung T528G which has a block on it so you can't watch Youtube over 3G this model has been restricted to WiFi only youtube.
