Just be sure whatever you switch too works well in your area. I live in a rural area and tmobile is horrible. Most of the time it is on edge not even 4g and LTE is sparse. I just did a speed test on my straight talk att LTE. Results were 20.47 download and 5.51.

I lfet Verizon for T-Mobile. Pretty good service, they also give you free wifi calling, free international roaming, and are pretty good prices.

On Verizon myself, because the other carrier's coverage around here is so-so at best, and right now, at least I know where my service works. I have 3 smartphones on the line, I pay about 250ish a month, grandfathered unlimited data on mine, 2gb plans on the other two. I also have roadside assistance on them, insurance on two, and visual voice mail on mine. I've gone on trips with people with T-mobile, and they have nothing where I'm at, and as soon as they left their hometown city-ish place, they never got it back until getting home. For me, I don't care how cheap it is, if it isn't going to work when I need it.

Obviously there are better options for a lot of people. But for where I am, I stick with what I know works.

I've been with AT&T a long time and got the unlimited data when I got my first iPhone. They let you keep it when you upgrade.

i keep seeing super cheap alternatives but all i can think is the service must suck

the one walmart promotes in particular

then the t-mobile commercial during the superbowl

what you guys have, what do you pay and how is the coverage?
This is why the limited plans are Wack. I paid around that for unlimited. And I have 50 more talk minutes.

Sure you might not need more gb but it's insane to pay the same as someone who does.

Hope you find a good alternative.

Maybe don't threaten but sound disheartened. Worked for a friend of mine.


Like darn this is just to pricey and can't afford it... This carrier has this for this price and offer this.... Can't you help me at all? I'd rather stay but the price is really a deterrent...

Remember prepaid has no roaming...

This was something that wasn't a big deal for us. But, before we switch to any company, we test their towers by finding the prepaid service that uses their towers. We try it for a month. If we (the wife) like(s) it, we switch.
Prepaid is worth it if you can get by with it. Just remember, no roaming. And with post paid you would get that.

I used t have verizon so I disconnected it so that I can go to Straightalk and I havent looked back ever since.

$45.00 unlimited everything and ever since I've been paying it monthly I havent seen a stupid dent in my pocket.
