Re: [POLL] 2011 Wireless Provider

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.

Still with ATT (cingular). Will switch to T-Mobile if they get 3g in my area. Been out of contract for 8 months.

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.

Out the 10BaseT, through the modem, down the co-ax, over the fiber, across the backhaul, past the edge router, off the network...nothing but net

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.

Never had a problem (yet).

I am a Verizon user; been with them for almost 6 years. Have no desire to leave since I have a smartphone and I haven't had any issues. Network is solid, customer service is top notch; few hiccups on billing. Prices are high but I have service. Only thing that works well in my apartment is AT&T and that would present a logistical nightmare for me. I keep a T-Mobile prepaid cell and its signal is so inconsistent it's sad. Sprint (CDMA and IDEN) is flaky in my place as well. Cricket and MetroPCS offer roaming only here, so they are a no-go (phones arent all that great either).

I have 2 other lines on the Verizon account in Atlanta and the users have had zero problems...

Finally divorced Verizon after 9 years, bought my first phone right after 9/11. It was a Nokia 5180, remember those?

Anyway, lousy customer service, and their value per dollar isn't great. I went to AT&T and took my number with me; remember, not too long ago you couldn't do this.

Verizon's termination fee didn't stop me, I like AT&T and I haven't looked back since!

Well I gave in and went Verizon. Got the family plan with 4 phones. Am sure I will be happy with them other than the family bucket on data that is up and coming. Not sure if it will be worth it or if I will just hold onto my unlimited for now and just not get smartphones for the other three.

Ditched AT&T earlier this year and switched my iPhone to Verizon. My mother took over the remaining lines on my AT&T account. Now I have reception in places that she does not.

everyone always says something bad about AT&T but they always seems to be right up there with Verizon in charts here.
I am with AT&T and in my areas where I use it it works fine.
