Default cell phone service that is not verzion

I've finally had it with verzion, I don't care if they are the best they can suck my cock and I'm gladly paying the $600 early cancle fee...now with that being said I am I need for new cell service. Here are my specs, I have 4 lines with two smart phones and two dumb phones. I have 1500 minutes and unlimited data and I pay $214 a month...so I need something like what I have, but hopefully for cheaper...

I've heard Walmart has a very cheap plan available and they are able to use all towers so coverage is very good. I think it was 50 a month for unlimited everything for a smartphone. Not sure how four phones will factor in but worth a look. Hard to be the evil Walmart at something they've put their minds and billions towards.

You just had some welfare payments,time to get yourselves some Obama phones.

Option 2 is a jitter bug phone.

we pay $192 per month for a pretty similar plan for 3 smart phones with 1500 minutes and unlimied data for Sprint.....I dont think your doing to bad with your pricing. Sprint sucks, we all hate the crap service.

I have been very happy with Boost mobile. 2 smart phones with unlimited everything for $80 month. Plans start out at $55 month per line and shrink down to $40 when on time payments are made. The only bad is, customer service is absolutely horrible and you have to buy the phones.

I went from Nextel to sprint and now Verizon as of yesterday. My Gf has had Verizon for a long time and I have been a lot more impressed with Verizon than sprint. I will never use sprint as long as I live. They suck at life.

as a former sprint employee i'll tell you that the network is overcrowded and sprint generally doesn't care.

sprint has "unlimited data" but i usually only use about 2gb a month because its so fucking slow.

I don't remember what my family pays for AT&T but I have always had good luck with service. I haven't had any issues with anything so no comment on customer service.

I've had Sprint. Like Skife said, their data is useless slow. I switched to Tmobile, unlimited everything, 3 lines, no capped data. Sprint was like $210, Tmobile is $240 a month. All lines had full boogie insurance. Tmobile data speeds are usually 10-18 meg down. Coverage is great in the city and suburbs, but data slows to sprint speed in the sticks.

Verizon is top dog, but obviously you'll pay.
