Has anyone switched service to Verizon and gotten a monster of a phone bill for changing data plans?

Has anyone switched service to Verizon and gotten a monster of a phone bill for changing data plans?

I couldn’t afford my bill and I wasn’t impressed with customer service so I switched to sprint. My bill is half what it was with unlimited data but guess what?

Can’t look up maps while on the phone with pax.

And I only have service half to three quarters of the time I’m working. I have to drive blocks to even end a ride sometimes.

Paying for the data that our rideshare apps use has become a nightmare.

Passengers give me the wrong address and the apps ping to the wrong address so often I have to look up Maps constantly to find them while on the phone with them

When is comes to paying the phone bill you get what you pay for. I too hate Verizon, but I never have to worry about my data not working, so it’s worth it. And besides our phone bill is a tax right off at the end of the year.

I had no idea Sprint was going to be this bad.
And now I have to come up with $1200 to get my Verizon back

My daughter is also on my plan and she used a lot of data but the amount of money they charged is outrageous
There was no way I was going to be able to survive if I paid my Verizon phone bill

I think some of the problem is the hills of San Francisco but I didn’t have service most of the time driving from the Los Angeles to San Francisco . I had to urgently pay a bill and it took me hours to pay it online because Sprint had no service in between Los Angeles and San Francisco

I have Verizon. Its a little more but better in coverage. I’m using my phones in our Colorado Rockies while the Cricket, T-Mobile users are waiting for me to end my call so they.can use my phone too.

I’ve heard that the Sprint and Verizon infrastructures are outdated and T-Mobile is more advance. Wait until you are at a concert with 20,000 people and everyone is trying to get an uber and you don’t have reception. Then you’ll know what provider to choose. I learned the hard way.

I’ve had sprint forever and never had an issue. But recently I’ve noticed increasing issues with reception and service. Im normally a creature of habit, so driving for Uber & Lyft has taken me out of my regular driving areas, and this is when I am having service problems.

I’m thinking I am going to get a cell phone strictly for work. Now that I’ve read this, I’m definitely going to check out T-Mobile! I was just going to bite the bullet and go Verizon, but they are so damn expensive! I’ll do whatever I need to do for the best service and plan, hopefully it won’t be too bad if I only use it for Uber/Lyft.

I can tell you right now, Sprint sucks! You pay for 4G and only get 3G! Unless it has changed since I left sprint. I have Tmobile and have unlimited everything and pay like 60 a month. Plus it’s no contract.

Boost is cheap with okay reception, but I hate how I can’t do voice and data at the same time. If I take a call, that means I can’t get a ping.

I find that I have a lot of dropped calls on T-Mobile. Verizon has the number one coverage in America but the number to coverage as AT&T and ever since I switched to Cricket for $40 a month taxes included Unlimited everything and I have not had a dropped call since

I actually have Sprint and I can speak with PAX and also use the MAPS. One solution is to download the MAPS for your entire area so that it does not require a persistent connection in order to find or set routes. Again, I have no problem and I am on Sprint. It may be the type of phone you have, I have a Samsung S6 Edge Plus. I am in NYC/Northern NJ.

I have no problem with Verizon. Before them, Sprint they sucked, then Tmobile, they sucked a little less than Sprint. Verizon, no problems

Verizon and AT&T are the best. But also the most expensive. I don’t have problems with
T-Mobile no dropped calls or any of that. The plan prices are cheap and even better pricing with a family plan.

Tmobile all day. If youre paying for Verizon or att have fun getting bent over and fucked.

MetroPCS. I pay $100 per month for four lines with unlimited talk text and data. I stream vids while waiting for pings and have never gone over my 4G limit. If I do hit the limit, it simply drops to the lower speed.

Really…you must have had an incredible dial-up modem then, since I’ve never seen dial-up at this speed!
Maybe you should learn what you are talking about before you try to ridicule others. That was 4 minutes ago on my MetroPCS phone on 4G

To educate you…4G, also called 4G LTE, as in MetroPCS 4G LTE, is 4th Generation Long Term Evolution and is approx. 10 times faster than the older 3G networks, which is what data services drop you to once you have used up your monthly 4G allowance. When I’m waiting for pings, I set my phone as a hotspot for my tablet so I can surf the web, do FB, stream TV and videos, listen to music, etc. and so far have never used up my 4G allowance on my $25 per month plan ($100 for 4 lines).
