In for details on how they pull that off.

We have 2 phones on an ATT plan. My android phone and my wifes regular phone. 1400 shared minutes and my data is unlimited. $133 per month.

ATT service pretty much sucks north of grayling.

I have AT&T. Service is better than sprint but its no Verizon. Customer service is like any big company. The sand people that make $10.00 don't care about anything. I will say its WAY better than sprint. Sprint customer service is like the company a complete joke. I am happy with AT&T. You just have to choose the less of the evils with cell company's.

I think a lot of people don't know that almost anyone can get a discount. Ours is 20% as well.

I probably do as well - which store you shopping at?

their online congfuckerator puts a plan similar to that at about $220/mo


I'll just keep carrying a dumb phone and an ipod touch if I have to fiddle with something when I'm not driving. (wifi is available literally 80-90% of the times that I'm not driving where I might be tempted to use one)

summertime outdoors, I could give less fucks about data/wifi coverage.

I called the number and talked to them on the phone...I have never been able to use the online store for cell phones...but I dig your idea about the ipod touch, I was actually talking about this idea yesterday

Why are you asking anyone else which provider to go with then? Just ask your wife what provider you need to have then when she hands you back your phone, shut it off and put it in the back of the kitchen junk drawer. Wives never clean that shit out, it'll be gone forever.

Hancho I went thru this about a year and a half ago. Left Verizon for AT&T. Long story short I'm back with Verizon. Hope you experience is better than mine with AT&T.

in July I got lucky and "won" a MSP auction at bidcorp.com - got two brand new in the box, meijer's stickers still affixed iPod Touches for $225ish I think total.

each sticker had a meijer price of $225 on them so I basically got two for one. (yes I know you can find them periodically for $180 or so new still)


I just ended a "chat session" with the online store folks and confirmed with them, that there's really no incentive for me to leave verizon and we'll keep plodding on with this method.

I've heard some ok things about virgin mobile and boost, but not enough just yet to convince me to check further

My wife and I are in the same boat. I have Verizon through work and she has AT&T. We will be dropping AT&T in a few months when her contract is up. Verizon has beaten AT&T in every aspect. Expect a lot of "I don't know"s when talking to AT&T's customer service when you have issues connecting to their internet service.

Just left ATT for Verizon. Anywhere I wanted 3g/4gLTE I couldn't get it. Essentially I was paying for a service I couldn't use. Got verizon and I'm paying less for better service. win win.

AT&T here. Iphone 5, unlimited data, unlimited phone, unlimited text, $93/month.

If I had to do it over, I'd go to walmart.

I actually might still switch to walmart.

^ It is what I have been using for over a year.

I have an android unlimited for $45./month. I hate gaymart, but it seems like the best deal to me....
