I too am surprised by the outcome of this article. I have tried out almost all the carriers listed and have returned to Cricket twice. I now pay $95 per month for unlimited talk and text, including mexico and canada. This same plan includes 8 GB of data. Not sure where you can come close to this plan elsewhere. Additionally, if you want/need unlimited data it 8217 s only $65 per month. I 8217 m really not sure how Verizon for $95 with 8 gb compares and that is the cheap prepaid plan.
For those of you having trouble unlocking with ATT, there is an alternative. Gevey Ultrasim from Applenberry works really well. I 8217 ve been using it for 6 months in Africa. All you need is a pair of scissors to cut your sim card. Nothing fancy. Be sure to only buy it directly from Applenberry because there are apparently fakes on eBay, craigslist and amazon.
When you say 8225 people 8221 I hear 8225 people that understand how unlocked phones work 8221 . It 8217 s the new home phone line. Once it 8217 s more mainstream, yes.
I concur the 8225 low 8221 speed high speed data from Cricket isn 8217 t a problem for me. There aren 8217 t many times when the signal is even strong enough to max out 8mbps, so the cap is meaningless in many ways.
We launched Best Cellular Coverage Network: https:///Coverage a few years back and we 8217 re in the process of opening hundreds of retail store locations Nationwide. We started researching launching our own Mobile Virtual Network Operator over 15 years ago.
Sorry but this is a stupid comment. There are very obvious reasons why ARPU might not give you an idea of which carrier offers the best value. Meanwhile it is easy just to look up the prices of the plans and what they offer, so why would you bother with any other metric of value?
2. What if I want a smart phone without a data plan? Why don 8217 t I have the option to just use smart part of the phone solely when I 8217 m in a wireless environment, which is most of the time? Verizon says no to this choice I 8217 d like to make.
The second-largest carrier offers a strong GSM network—so you get simultaneous voice and data use even outside of LTE territory—and good in-building coverage via its widespread low-band spectrum. But its pricing isn’t as attractive. It gets even worse if you buy your phone on AT& T’s installment plan: Until you’ve paid it off, the device will be locked and stuck with unfavorable international-roaming charges. AT& T reduced those roaming charges to bring them more in line with those of Verizon and T-Mobile, but that change isn’t enough for us to make this carrier a pick—or for us to forget this carrier’s history of treating customers so poorly.
For my part, in the modern 8225 Amazon age 8221 , I appreciate the convenience of being able to do everything online, and being able to order accessories and even a new phone, whenever I want, and for the cheapest price (usually much lower than a carrier 8217 s in-store), and having that delivered to me 2 days later (Amazon Prime). I save money and it 8217 s a lot more convenient *for me*.
You aren 8217 t kidding about the regression in ATT LTE speeds. When they first deployed LTE I 8217 d get 25-85Mbits consistently. Now I am lucky to get 5. Also, the coverage is pretty broad, but the signal strength still doesn 8217 t match that of their older network. So basically LTE just ends up killing my battery trying to connect with 2 bars vs 9-5 bars for 8G/9G in the same location.
