Rate your cell service provider

#1
Personally, I'm on Sprint. Their quality of service is generally poor, but they are cheap and have unlimited data, so that goes into consideration as well. That said, I'd rate mine 3/5 stars.

How would you rate your cell service provider?

I almost got one of those a while back. They are cheap, but usually their idea of "unlimited data" is like 200MB. Tongue

I don't know what to give mine. Pro: $30 upgrade to ANY phone as long as you renew after X months (something over 2 years) CON: 3 year contract (BUT: those are effectively done for thanks to new CRTC rules!) CON: Horribly expensive, spotty reception on occasion.

All in all, 2.5/5 - I'll pass them.

$30 upgrade to any phone? Not bad. I get free upgrades to some phones, and the better ones usually have a fee of up to $200-$300. I only have a two year contract though, which is nice. Big Grin

I have a TracFone cause I really don't have use for a smartphone at the moment. TracFone's network usually depends on what SIM card you have (like my SIM's serial ends in C, meaning it's off the AT&T network, since the C used to stand for Cingular, AT&T's mobile phone predecessor), but it has really good coverage. Plus, it's double minutes, so say I add a 60 minute card, I get 120 minutes plus 3 months of service. Smile

Ah, so you can get different SIM cards for different networks on tracfone? I wasn't aware of that. I always thought that tracfone ran on all of the nation's major networks collectively.

TracFone's GSM phones operate on T-Mobile and AT&T, which can be found out by your SIM's serial, if it ends in T, it's T-Mobile, if it ends in C, it's AT&T.

I believe Net10 and Straight Talk, the main TracFone monthly brands have some that operate off Verizon. Tongue

Is it a random assignment to either T-mobile or AT&T, or are you able to choose which network you want to operate on?

Straight Talk and Net10 have "bring your own phone", where you buy the SIM that your phone works with.

Straight Talk though advertises if your phone is T-Mobile compatible, you get unlimited 4G for $45 a month. No 4G on AT&T-compatible phones though. Sad

Ah nice. I think I'd go for the T-Mobile phone if I get unlimited 4G for $45/month. Of course most "unlimited" cell providers aren't actually unlimited, but I doubt they'd throttle you for using 2GB of data.

I almost went for a verizon phone on a pay-as-you-go plan. I'm pretty glad I didn't do that now, seeing how much I use my cell service.

Net10's AT&T SIMs do have a 1.5GB cap with a slowdown afterwards. Straight Talk doesn't have caps on either SIM though.

Ah nice. 1.5GB still isn't bad for the price that's being paid. Nobody really wants their service being throttled though, regardless of how much data they use.

Public sector here. Cheap, but equally bad.

How does cell service generally work in India as far as providers are concerned?
