I am pretty sure Verizon has the best coverage in the country.  But it comes at a high and variable price.  I recently switched from Verizon to T-Mobile under their 55+ program.  Basically, if you are 55 or over, they will charge you $55 total per month.  If you agree to autopay, they will charge you $50 per month (no extras for fees, taxes and all the other stuff Verizon piles on that frequently creeps up and up).  Then, you can add other lines of persons of any age for $20 additional dollars each.   Yes, you might get one bar less from time to time.  But you don't look at your bill wondering what charges have been added this month.  You don't have to like magenta, but maybe it helps.  Also, T-Mobile allows you to call anywhere in N. America without any charges or add ons.  If you go to Canada, you don't have to sign up for some additional fee as you do on Verizon (ditto Mexico, et al.).  Just sayin'.


Then that happened.

I've had T-Mobile for about 5 years, after using Sprint from whenever cell phones became de rigeur.

 

I really like the ability to use it when traveling, without any extra charges, except for maybe the occasional telephone call to a foreign phone number; and then that call is about $.20.

 

But I don't have the 55+ deal; instead, I have a deal that at the time cost $100/month for our two numbers. I'll be looking into this, thanks!

Is the T Mobile plan unlimited data?

Definitely cheaper, but you can get kicked off the network.  "Mint Mobile devices will have lower priority on T-Mobile's network than T-Mobile's own customers will. That's not something you'll need to worry about in most environments, but if you go to a concert, Pokemon Go raid or other busy event, you may stop being able to use data."

The savings probably offset the risk of Pokemon Go deficiency for most users.

Yes, that could be a plus.
