[POLL] 2011 Wireless Provider

Poll
Who is your primary wireless service provider?

Verizon Wireless

AT&T

Sprint Nextel

T-Mobile

Boost Mobile

Virgin Mobile

MetroPCS

Tracfone

Other

Other pre-paid


Votes:235




Welcome to "Provider Poll" v. 2011!

If you use more than one mobile device please vote for the provider you use the most often even if it's a data only device. Looking at last year's poll, most respondents were still using one of the four national providers. Changes this year include the deletion of Straight Talk and Page Plus Cellular as they had a very low response rate.

If I've missed your particular provider please vote other (either pre-paid or post-paid). I also encourage anyone who voted for "other" to list their service provider in the thread so we can include it in next year's poll.

As always, the above list are providers in the United States, if you have service in another country with the same brand (T-Mobile UK for example), please vote "other."

This is the poll's ninth version with a new one posted every year.

Here's last year's: »[POLL] 2010 Wireless Service Provider

Hey hey..right on time, Quip See Profile

I'm still with Verizon. Extremely happy with my service & plan
I have a New Every Two, and have upgraded to an Unlimited Plan for only $10 more than what I was paying all along for 1200 minutes

I never drop calls..which to me is #1 priority.

Going on my fourth year with Page Plus Cellular... been with 'em since March 2008. Love that Verizon coverage, even if the monthly data allotment is a measly 50MB.

Still on At&t. Have had them since they were Houston Cellular in 2000 and throughout the entire time they were Cingular.

Alltel is still one of the top ten providers of cellular service in the U.S. They should be listed in the poll. They do a damn good job.

Switched to Credo Mobile before the end of my AT&T contract.

Did not know that ETF is subject to USF....

Contract buyout from Credo was only for the ETF, not the USF or taxes on it.

Re: [POLL] 2011 Wireless Provider

I switched to Boost Mobile from Nextel postpaid. Same great service I had for a fraction of the cost.

going on 20 years now with Cellular South, a regional carrier here. about 60.00 a month per smart phone when you have 2 on a plan or 80 for a single SP, totally unlimited data/text/voice local or nationwide on all of them.

i had Bell South/Cingular/AT&T several years back, but i always carried my CellSouth phone because it worked better and was cheaper to use.

just hit 12 months with Sprint. Working on making Sprint the longest I have been with one carrier in more than 8 years (was with Qwest and went through their transitions from Qwest -> Sprint -> Verizon).

Still with T Mobile but have the HTC G2 now. Honestly I think their the best deal when it comes to the "big" wireless carriers, and I get full bars in my home which at&t and Verizon failed to do. I just can't get 3g inside.

Staightalk for me $33.63. I do not use all 1000 talk mins, text or web limits. Age must make some difference but my Cell phone is with me all the time and worth having for communication from kids, grand-kids, and Home security contact. Now that's a homerun with TV antenna, the PC for providing movies, news, mail and most importantly Broadband DSL. $185.00 bucks a month is cell phone, internet with basic cable, electricity (not-avarage billing) using led lighting, and home security. Thank you all for being here My Kitty Cats Eat Very Good.

I just switched from AT&T Go Phone to Boost Mobile unlimited plan. I ended up getting the Sanyo Incognito and it works for what I do. Would like a phone with a bigger screen since my eyes are old, lol.

Still with AT&T. 5 phones on a family plan all with different end of contract dates. Pretty much stuck here but I get great 3g speeds in my little podunk town. Hell, I've even gotten coverage while working out in the gulf of mexico.

I switched to Straight Talk--made sure to get a CDMA phone (VZ network). ditched page plus as they have the rudest customer service I have ever experienced, not to mention they would blame my phone as the reason that they would send me 70+ sms at once saying I had insufficient funds even though I was on the unlimited plan.

Me and my wife have Straight Talk at the moment and are pretty happy with them outside of the fact that I can't get my hands on a CDMA smart phone if they even have one which I doubt and the fact that they charge per phone and don't have any family or add a line plans. We use the Samsung sch R355c phones which for a simple qwerty non smart phone is still an incredible phone with really great signal reception compared to other phones on thier service and a few Verizon phones I have had a chance to compare it too including a couple of thier smart phones. I highly recomend Straight Talk to anyone that just needs an individual plan, great great service for us at least.

With that said we are trying out Wal-Mart family mobile as soon as my BlackBerry I ordered gets here. If we can get a T mobile signal on that better than this cheesy phone I got at Wal-Mart then we will be switching to them for the family plan.
