I have a cell phone plan. I won't name the company, but it rhymes with "Schmerizon." I've been seeing these cell phone war commercials about 3G service, better coverage, better rates, and I'm confused. My cell phone plan is up in July, and I really want to get the best deal in plans. Right now, I don't have a smart phone, but am really interested in upgrading. But, here's the thing - I don't know if it's worth it to put $30 more on a monthly phone bill just so I can surf the web when I need to.
I've been seeing commercials from Sprint - the have a deal for unlimited text and web, in addition to a good amount of phone minutes for around $129 (for 2 phones). This is far less than what Verizon and AT&T offers. Of course, I have no idea how good of coverage Sprint has.
And what about T-Mobile - I hear their rates are about $40 cheaper than Verizon and AT&T, but again, how's the coverage?
Then, I hear stuff from these alternate carriers - Boost, Cricket, Metro PCS ... they seem to have fantastic deals and no contracts (for the most part) ... but what is the deal with them? Why are they so much cheaper? Are there hidden charges?
Basically, I'm looking for your help. Can you help me in making my decision? Are there any websites or resources I can go to in order help me find reviews or help me make a decision based on my specific needs?
