I currently have SprintPCS and am thinking of switching to a different company.<br><br>I use my cellphone as my main phone (no home phone) due to several reasons:<br>1. I live alone<br>2. I have a cable modem, no need for phone line<br>3. I don't like the unnecessary BS that BellSouth charges for a home phone. A basic phone with NO frills costs almost $30!<br><br>So anyways, what I'm looking for is a service that offers a lot of packages for the cheapest rate. I want either unlimited nights and weekends with a lot of daytime minutes or a lot of evening minutes. Plus ones that rollover to the next month if possible.<br><br>What, if you all do have it, do you have and do you like it? Is the service good and the reception clear?<br><br>
I just signed up with Verizon, and this was my plan:<br><br>First phone:<br><br>- 400 anytime minutes<br>- Unlimited nights and weekends ($5 extra a month, as opposed to 4000 night and weekend minutes)<br>- 1000 mobile to mobile minutes (meaning if I call another Verizon wireless customer, it only deducts from THOSE minutes)<br>- Free long distance<br>-100 free text messages<br><br>2nd phone:<br>-400 anytime minutes (shared with the first phone)<br>- Unlimited nights and weekends<br>- 250 mobile to mobile<br>- free long distance<br>- 100 free text messages (shared with the first phone)<br><br>Total cost: $70 a month for 2 phones- the 2nd phone was $20 extra, so you could probably get all that for $40 or $50 if you only get the 1 phone and just stick with the 4000 night and weekend minutes..<br><br>No rollover minutes, but the CSR I talked to the other day say that plan is in the works for Verizon. Currently, only Cingular has the rollover option...<br><br>The phone is a Motorola, and it works great anywhere we've tried it so far...<br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>
We have Verizon too, and the package is much like DaddyMac's, except we have the single phone, which is 40 plus tax per month. So far it's been great.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<br>

Thanks..might have to go check them out. What would be cool would be to get the Sony/Erricson T68i phone..the one that's compatible with iSync. But I don't think any carriers here carry them.<br><br><br><br>
Since you can't get into T-Mobile's site I'll detail the plan I have:<br><br>$70 month<br>Free long distance, no roaming fees<br>800 anytime minutes<br>Unlimited weekend minutes<br>Unlimitied T-Mobile to T-Mobile minutes<br>50 IncomingText Messages, Enhanced VoiceMail, Built-in Paging, Caller ID, Conference Calling, Call Waiting and Call Hold, Customer Care, Directory Assistance, Emergency Calls, AOL Instant Messenger Service, Detailed Billing<br><br>And the biggie: you can have up to 5 phones on this plan, so if you have one or more family members you want to share minutes with, you can also get them to share the cost.<br><br>

I recently switched to T-Mobile from AT&T Wireless. Reason? Amazon had a great promo going (still do I think) on the Motorola V60G, you get it for free with rebates. The thing I liked about T-Mobile is that the V60G is a GSM phone, so you can use it worldwide where GSM is in use. I plan to use it in Europe in two months, which is going to be useful for me. I have been happy with their service and the phone is great too. <br><br><br><br>
