    They're pretty competitive now, Verizon being not anywhere near as much higher ($54 per line) than the others at this point if you do 3 lines or more. 1 line is still $80 for unlimited data, 2 lines ,$70 per line for 2. Not that long ago those prices were for very limited data allotments. Since I don't use much data I'm very happy with my current plan with AT&T and they evidently aren't happy with me having it as they keep spamming me with emails about how unlimited data, at a higher price, is a better deal for me lol.

    Tmo gave me a "cellspot" for free. If i turn off my wifi in my house, which is made out of cement and cinder block, i get 4 bars on the phone. I get good, not great, reception in the Sarasota, Fl. area. About the same as Verizon & AT&T. I've heard about the 600Mhz band that Tmo bought, and they say that by the end of this year it should be operational. 20-25Mhz is supposed to go into the Sarasota area. They have built a new tower about 3 miles from where i live, so it should be all good pretty soon. The bottom line is that my wife and i have better phones and a better, less expensive carrier with outdoor service just as good as our previous carrier, and indoor service that went from 1 or 2 bars, to 4 bars all the time. It was a win win for us.:p

    I'll have to check that out! TMO is very popular here, so maybe they're working on the deficits. Do you still have Google if you switch from Verizon to tmo? I guess that must be a silly question... What else do you lose switching from Verizon to tmo? Is it just cell coverage, or other features that I might not be thinking about ( but taking for granted with big red)

    I was only with Verizon for about a year, and i found them adequate for signal strength outside the house, 2-3 bars with 4G LTE, and about the same inside my house. With Tmo, i get the same signal strength outside the house, but 4-5 bars inside the cement & cinderblock house. Monthly rate is MUCH better, and i get the same apps, including Google. As i stated in an earlier post, the outside signal strength is supposed to increase to 4-5 bars by the end of the year. So far, it's all good.:p

    It's all about reception these days, especially if you travel.

    Haha. I don't know if i'll be in SoCal for a while, as most of my family live on the east coast and Texas. I can tell you that according to my family, in those areas, Tmo works well. Here in Sarasota, Fl., it's just average right now, but hopefully changing within 6 or 7 months. My next vacation will be in Key West, and after a few drinks, i won't care what the reception is like.:p:p:p
