Who has left Verizon and for whom?

I'm considering T mobile ...had them before and left

But I've heard they're much improved now?

What say you?

Verizon is about our only option out here. No other companies get decent service anywhere but right in town.

Yes, Verizon is crazy, You never know what your bill will be, My wife switched to consumer cellular, same number & new phone for 35.00 month, It has not changed yet.

Switched from Verizon to AT&T for better cell service at my camp. Price is not much better but the cell service is a little better in the areas I need it.

You will not be happy with T Mobile, they have so many large gaps in service area all across Minnesota. They say their service is a lot better now but it's still horrible. You get off a major highway and you're not going to be connected in most areas of the state.

All my kids and son in law are on my Verizon plan, 7 lines. After tax it comes out to like 45 dollars a line with the group discount. That is not counting phone payment.

Not so in this part of the state. I have outstanding coverage with T Mobile. I get service in many areas that my coworkers don't. Get into the valley's around here and my service is strong. Very rare to hit dead spots. For 3 lines our bill is $116 a month no phone payments, and phon insurance.

I had Verizon years ago. Expensive , had dead spots.
Switched over to this :

Disregard the 20gig high speed , now 40gig high speed. Unlimited slower speed after 40gigs.

Cheaper , no dead spots.

You may not know this but Verizon acquired tracfone, straight talk and several other pre-paid cell companies, I think it was 2020 or 2021. I believe that part of the agreement was the verizon would not change the pricing or service for 3 years.

Switched to T Mobile about 3 months ago. Not because of Verizon's service but because the local service person was an absolute crook, liar, very dishonest.
