Switching phone companies

September 14th, 2015 at 07:38 pm

We switched from Verizon to T Mobile. T Mobile is having a deal for 10 gb a line with unlimited talk and text $120 for up to 4 lines. We had three lines and a spare sim card given to us. So we decided to switch.

My BIL broke his phone and was happy to buy a new one. My DH and I ported over our old verizon phones and activated them on T mobile. T mobile also paid our early termination fees off the contract.

We were paying $190/month between three people for 3 smart phones and 10 gb of data shared. Now we are looking at $120 for 3 lines with 10 gb each. Of course my DH is interested in a new phone but me personally I'll be focusing on the cheapest smart phones since I seem to be a magnet for breaking/losing of phones. So there is NO point for me to have anything fancier than my most recent moto E for $70. Not a bad deal.

Of course my BIL just bought a note 6 and my DH will likely want something nicer soon enough. But personally this no contract and buy a phone you like I think is the best plan. I've been dying to move to cricket or pay as you go and it never made sense when I inputted how much data and minutes we've used. But this new T mobile deal is pretty sweet.

If only my parents also on T mobile would have joined our plan then 5 people for $130 would have been a steal. And no my mom refused because of control issues.

    I hope T-Mobile has better coverage in your area than it does here. Sounds like a good deal for your family.

    Did you take your actual Verizon phone to T Mobile? I think our Verizon phones don't even have SIM cards. I suppose it depends on the phone. That does sound like a much better deal.

    We did take our phones to T mobile. We had to trade in different old smart phones to get the termination. We had our old Galaxy Nexus to trade in.

    FrugalTexan actually the reception isn't bad. Where we lived before we had T mobile in CA but switched to Verizon because we lived in a T Mobile Dead Zone. We had terrible ATT reception too. So we were sort of stuck with Verizon.
