I have Boost Mobile, which is similar to the Straight Talk plan. I've been with them for 3 yrs now after switching from Verizon. Obviously, I like it enough to stay. I have unlimited everything for $40/mn. My 4G only works in larger parts of town, but that's OK.

With any new plan, check the coverage area map and make sure you have a trail period to test it out.

Beep beep, where you at?

Ok just kidding. Best deal out there is T-Mobile guys. All the phones, no contracts, 4g no 3g crap unless your not in a 4 g area. I pay for 3 phones all with unlimited data calling web and an upgraded wireless hotspot amount on 2 of the lines. I pay $230. With out the upgrades I would be paying $170 for just unlimited everything.

We have simple mobile, which runs on tmobile's network. $40 a month per line for unlimited talk, text, and data. You don't get subsidized phone prices, but you can find good phones for $200 or so on craigslist or just spend $300 on a nexus 4. We previously had tmobile. With simple mobile, the coverage is the same, we just pay about 30% less than we were paying.

You will also need to keep in mind your priority on the network. With straight talk you are on a lower priority on the network than Verizon post paid subscribers. I have Verizon with share everything 10gigs of data for my iphone, I use about 8.7-9.2 gigs a month. I also tether my laptop to my cell phone for internet while on the go.

You will have to decide if it matters to be on more of a "virtual" network rather than using the physical network. My cell phone is a mission critical device for me, so I don't mind paying the premium for premium service that I need it to work.

With priority on the network goes

1. Verizon Post-paid
2. Verizon Pre-paid
3. Network agreements

Very nice to know, I hadn't thought of that

Sorry I just saw this yeah they work great, I honestly can't tell much of a difference, if any in 3 and 4G with what I use my phone for.
