Not motorcycle, more on cell phones?

I am severing my ties with AT&T after 22 years. I am looking at T-Mobile and Verizon as the bigger carriers around here, the smaller companies don't have much coverage here. Any comments about the dealings with these two companies are what I'm looking for. The service wasn't the issue here, it was some underhanded dealing they did that I will not tolerate. Any recommendations?

Hey Ronnie,

My nephew is an IT guy, and he turned us onto Mint Mobile. If you purchase it by the year, it's $15 a month. When we ordered the phones, we mentioned that ATT was the best cell tower coverage at my nephew's suggestion, and when they sent the SIM Chip, it was set up to ping ATT first. We all use Samsung phones and in the settings you can actually select which towers to ping first. When we traveled to California from Pennsylvania, I adjusted the phone in the settings for the best coverage while traveling across certain states, and it worked like a charm. The service is straightforward, no hidden fees, you get 4 GIG of data every month, but if you need more, you can double it for $10. This has been better by far than ANY Senior Plan offered even by the government for seniors. We had ATT and Verizon over the years, and the pricing and service were just awful. Being the skeptic I am, I tried the "One Month FREE" plan they offered at the time, beat all of the bugs out of my phone, (They even let us carry our "new" old phones over to the new plan, and keep our numbers) and when I was all warm and fuzzy about it, I purchased the 1 year plan, and have never looked back! Three years and running, still not a single issue. They even offer deals on new phones to go with the plans. NO CONTRACTS! If you don't like it, switch to something else at the end of the month. The way things are today, this is pretty much the FAIREST deal I have been able to find on cell phone packages. 

I hope this helps you Ronnie, It sure made my life easier.

I left ATT for pretty much the same reason, underhanded stuff. I went with Verizon and I have not regretted it no more house phone but everyone here has there own cell phone and we are in the country

We live in the out in the sticks so I’m still trying to test coverage, there is no fiber optic or internet offered here so cellphones are our only connection to the world. Verizon has signal here but T Mobile is cheaper, just gotta find out about signal. Thanks y’all.

Hey Ron, like you we live in the sticks, infact 0-1 bars on cell phone.  Put up old TV tower, 50 ohm wiring with directional signal antenna, with Cel-fi Go X signal booster & interior wide band panel antenna. Now pointing to a Verizon or subsidiaries tower we get 2-full bars, which works the best around here.
