The Verizon cell network is always rated as the best of the 4 nationwide networks. So, that is the only network I would use. But, there are several cell services that use the Verizon network. If you have Xfinity as your internet provider, then I think the Xfinity Mobile cell service is a real bargain. It costs about $14 per GB of mobile data and you get unlimited talk and text. My monthly bill is about $14 because I always use less than 1 GB of data. There are also unlimited data plans.

Mint Mobile. $15 per month prepaid for unlimited talk and text and 3 GBytes of data. Higher data plans are also available if you needed more. They also have good deals if you travel outside the country.

If you are an xfinity customer at your home consider, adding xfinity mobil. I reluctantly changed to xfinity mobil recently after being a very long time Verizon customer, and do not regret making the change. Xfinity uses the same towers as Verizon so you have the same coverage. My new xfinity mobil account charges $45 per month for unlimited calling, text, and data. They throttle down the speed of data after 20 gigs, but that is a lot of data. Xfinity also has mobil wifi hotspots located in many places. I was paying $60 per month with Verizon and was limited to only 1 gig of data.

In today's market, talk and text go together. I don't think you will save any money by looking for a "talk only" service. Xfinity Mobile only charges $14 per month for 1 GB of mobile data. But, with that, you get unlimited talk and text. So, you can talk all you want for $14 per month.

We dropped Verizon 6 years ago because we were paying $120+/mo. for my wife and I plus we were on contract. Went with Consumer Cellular. We now pay $56/mo with 10 gig data ...we normally use 6 or 7 gig/mo. no contract used at&t network. We could lower the bill by choosing less data plan, but with a smart phone like you have I'm sure you want to take advantage of it.

You should look at Consumer Cellular. You can choose to use either AT&T or T-Mobile towers. No contract, great rates, excellent customer service.
