    Is anyone here using either one of these two services? I'm tired of getting fucked in the ass by Sprint.

    Most of the people here use the jitterbug.

    No apps or texting, but the buttons are big.

    I've been using NET10 for about five years now. $35 month.

    The service is good, but I don't like the phone I currently have.

    I may switch to Straight Talk if I decide to buy an Iphone

    I miss the Talkin' Straight show that used to come on H101 right around the time that Stern jumped the shark.

    ...i use boost mobile. pay on time and its 35 a month plus tax, comes out to $44.00. what i have noticed is youre limited to certain phones depending on the service provider so if you can find a phone you like you may or may not be able to find that phone with certain service providers. one of my boys uses metro cps i think is what its called. imo with boost you get major provider services for less and with no contract. sprint network owns boost mobile. ive only used tmobile and boost and tmobile sucks, no appreciation for long term customers so after 12 years of paying on time i told them to fuck off.

No I dont wanna sign up this second, No I cant give you access to my Tmobile plan at this moment, No, not ready to make a deposit now...LOLz.... I'm sorry I have to go, it's an emergency, Oh BTW that indian accent mixed with a rolling/charming Murican accent is barely comprehensible.....what, can you repeat that< Hello? I cant understand that>>>LOPz

    I just hung up...I realize she wanted the sale, but I couldn't take it anymore...man I hate people :jj:

    I am paying $260 for 3 phones. I can get 3 lines with cricket for $120/month. This is if you buy the phone or bring your own of course.

    It's nuts...I started with Tmobile 2 years ago...4 lines 150 a month. Now I'm up to 250 for the same plan...when I talk to them the charges all make sense. They're sneaky!

    Spring is offering me 4 lines for 90 a month...LOL. They all lie...they are all whores. and the longer you stay with any company the worse it gets...UHHG

    Iv'e been using Cricket for the last 18 months. 5 lines with unlimited talk and text and 2.5gb of data on each for $100 per month. The data can be a little slow sometimes, but otherwise no complaints.

    Straight talk is great. Used it for about a year before I got a deal with a different carrier through work. The service worked great but there is no customer support at all if you need something like that.

    PagePlus Cellular is about $55/mo for a good but not best unlimited plan, which is higher than PCMetro and Straight Talk, but I believe they're one of the only prepaids that uses the comprehensive coverage and reliable Verizon network.

    I looked into both as well as others but when factoring in my existing phone I wanted to use, the availability of new phones my wife wanted to buy, pricing, data, etc, I just stuck with Verizon. The best alternative was about $7/mo less.
