We have V and it works well south of 466A. We aren't locked into the dome so when we leave to travel outside we find V provides coverage throughout the Country. I think a part of your choice will be how you intend to use it....and where.

Trac phone is the least expensive, no problems with service anywhere.

Verizon for home phone they are a big ripoff.

For cell phones, we have Straight Talk. Excellent coverage - they use Verizon satellites. There is no contract, but you have to buy your phone outright. Walmart has the best deals. We pay $45 a month for unlimited everything - voice, text, and internet. Our can also get unlimited text and internet, with 100 minutes for $30 a month. He savings pay for our smart phone very quick.

I use Consumer Cellular. The towers are AT&T. Good service for me anywhere in TV except inside some big buildings.
We have two lines no contract. We have 750 min 1000 text and some data. Total bill including taxes is $44.60/ month for both lines. If I see I am going to run over I can add minutes to the plan one month then take them off for the next. My phone will alert me if I get close to going over. Very flexible and low cost.

I have Wireless Republic. I'm happy. I bought a moto G for 150 from them and my monthly bill was $10. I upped it to 25 to use their data plan. I was going to drop it this week but now I will be getting back money for the data I don't use.

Totally agree. Verizon for cell and Magic Jack for home. My wife still has TMobile and coverage is so bad you could open the front door and yell and have a better chance of reaching the person you are calling. We have used MJ for past three months. Excellent

STRAIGHT TALK sells phones using all the major carriers.If you want Verizon as your carrier you must buy a phone with a red map on the package,for ATT a blue map.Do an internet search on the subject,lots of information.

My husband and I are shopping now. So far we went to sprint and Verizon to compare costs of two Samsung galaxy 5 phones The cost per month was almost identical. We have always heard Verizon is good but i do have a friend who loves sprint. Someone also mentioned to me there was an article in the POA paper about complaints from Verizon customers?? I did not see article. We will keep asking around before making decision. Sorry I am of no help since I'm in shopping stage myself

Hi Tomwed,

I am considering switching over to Republic Wireless, after reading some good reviews and considering the $25 plan to get the data plan as well. Would be interested in your opinion of the service, both pro and con. Is there a data limit in the plan? Why are you considering dropping the plan?

Thanks,
ADR0317

Agree about Verizon for cell but Magicjack is bad news for home. I bought an Ooma phone and for $10/mo I have unlimited phone calls to US and Canada, and, if I travel, I can hook up Ooma wherever I am staying and the phone rings just as if I were in TV!

We just switched from Sprint to AT&T. Sprint rarely pulled in the internet when we were out in the car, but we never had problems with dropped calls or internet at home in Tamarind Grove. But we needed to have unlocked phones for travel, and AT&T has them.

So far the AT&T service & internet is very good. No dropped calls, no waits for voice mails to come in, and picks up internet all over TV.

MJ at home, no problems with that in either MI or FL.
