Old on the left, new on the right
So who was our carrier? That would be Verizon.
Who is our new carrier? That would be Metro PCS
Verizon-roughly $150 a month
MetroPCS- This first month with switching and the new phones it was $110. After the first month we can switch to a different plan that will cost us $80 a month.
What we get
Verizon- shared minutes (can't remember how many), 250 texts each, 2 gigs of data each. Anything over 2 gigs and we get an additional charge.
Metro PCS= unlimited talk, text and data. For this first month everything is totally unlimited. When we switch to the other plan we'll have 3 gigs of data each and after that unlimited at a lower speed with no additional charge.
When I would try and use my phone at work, depending on what part of the store I was in I couldn't always get a signal. It wasn't always real fast either. I tried the new phone out at work on Sunday in different parts of the store and not only could I connect to the internet no matter where I was, it was so fast it was unbelievable. Another amazing thing was a video. On the old I could watch a video but it was slow to load and then it would start and stop throughout. On the new, it played right through without a single glitch.
I could be wrong but I think we made a good switch.
