About five months ago I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile. The salesman convinced me to go with the pre-paid plan, which I was skeptical of, of course. Turns out it was the best technology related move I've ever made. I live in Brooklyn. The service is soooo much better than Verizon. I actually can get calls when I'm indoors. I get 20/10 dl/ul speeds regularly. Best of all, because I do the month to month, there are no taxes or gvt fees. I know the plans changed last month, but I'm grandfathered in. I get unlimited 4G, talk and text and 3GB of 4G Hotspot for $70 a month. I even found a website where I get 4% off buying $100 refill cards and they apply it automatically for me. If you buy the cards from T-Mobile they charge you sales tax! So I end up paying about $67 a month. The same plan paying monthly is over $90 with taxes and fees. Just wanted to share. I am in no way affiliated or pad by T-Mobile. All that said, I'm traveling to Washington State next week and I'm a little anxious about what kind of service I'll get there. Cheers.
