I would love to switch to a pre-paid provider, but..

I have been with AT&T since Bellsouth Mobility. While I may not agree with some of their practices, they provide the best coverage for me and my business. It's a big decision for me to switch to another provider as I rely on my phone day in and day out. I can't be stuck without service or I could very well lose a customer. I have considered Straight Talk and other providers, but just can't find any that provide the same coverage and service level (LTE).

Must live in an odd area. I get better reception from a cheap Tracphone than I do AT & T in some areas.

AT&T is great here. 4-5 bars everywhere I go on my grandfathered unlimited iPhone and iPad. I stream constantly driving everywhere with no interruptions.
Also no need to worry about 61 cents if you own AT&T stock.

Your pessimism is entertaining at best. There are few carriers out there that offer such poor service that you MUST go with AT&T to maintain your living standard.

So you are implying that the 61 cents they are taking from you will be awarded back to you with at least a 61 cent increase in dividends?

I doubt that, it will still cost you. Maybe less than a non-stock holder, but it will certainly still cost you.

In the Hilton Head Island area of SC AT+T is the worse carrier, Verizon being the best and my tracfone uses the Version network.

Verizon does indeed rock the house in that area. Was happy to see 4G finally lit up when I was down that way last September.

And then this past April, saw that they'd done a little 4G lighting in the Fripp Island area. But it was not that great of a signal. 3G did pretty well, though.

I don't know if he lives in an odd area but I'm willing to bet that from his backyard or business address he can see an AT&T tower in plain view.

I live in a city of about 80,000. Great AT&T coverage, LTE added just recently and rarely a problem. Is it perfect? No, but it's much better than the alternatives in this area.

I'm not quite sure what the purpose of your post is but contrary to what some like to say AT&T overall isn't horrible. I have rarely had an issue with them. I do pay more than I would like too, but overall I get a solid signal everywhere I go and little problems.

I'm saying its easier to deal with the 61 cent increase when I'm getting around $800 every three months reinvested dividends with this stock in my Roth IRA.

So you have SIXTY THOUSAND dollars in ATT stock? Because at the 45 cent dividend they give, you'd need like 1778 shares @ 45/each to get 800$ every three months....

Doesn't sound like you have much of an unbiased opinion there.
