    Who do you use what service do you have and whats it costing you.

    We have Verizon
    My family (4) all have smart phones two of the phones are paid for and two are still being paid.
    Our service is nationwide unlimited avg use 15 to 20 gigs a month but it is unlimited, normal monthly bill $295.
    They are all on the same plan the boys pay their part.

    Was thinking of shopping around but the way Verizon does their phones you often can't take them to another carrier, some you can others you can not. Sometimes you can swap sim cards others you can jailbreak.

    possibly might need to all get new phones, it might be a wash.

    I got my Verizon phones through my farm business account. 2 lines and 2 hum devices for 100 a month plus taxes and fees. Has to be 4 devices. The phones are 40 a line and the hum is 10 per line. You should be able to get 4 phones for 40 a line but, I had to show them the farm portion of my tax return to verify my business.

    I use Consumer Cellular and tell my kids they have a data limit. AARP recommends Consumer Cellular, my bill $75.00

    AT&T $60 monthly unlimited data (well 30 gigs high speed). Unlimited data is really not unlimited data. Once you use that up it’s throttled way down and basically useless

    Been with Verizon pretty much since they first opened the doors.

    Guess I'll call and see what they will do to keep me, you really can't beat their coverage.

    Mostly good, but there are a few low spots on our place where we don’t get a signal. We’ve had friends with Verizon who seemed to get a little better signal than we do, but not enough to justify switching.
    A few years ago, we were told that Verizon and Bluegrass shared cell towers, so there signal was the same, but I’m not sure if that’s right or not.

    Cricket IS AT&T. Same towers, same signal, same service.

    Before anybody changes, check with your neighbors.

    My niece had great service in her area where her house is. She changed to "save" money and now we are lucky we can text or talk to her 5 times a week to her home. We now do most of that when she's at work.

    We use a TracFone....$20 gets me 3 months service. All unused minutes, text and data roll over. When I got that I got a triple minute smart phone deal. Meaning if I buy a 60 minute card I get 180 minutes, 180 text and I forget how much data. I do know last time I checked I had over 2500 minutes and 3000 text left. We don't live with a phone glued to the side of our heads like some.
