I've been considering switching over to T-mobile when I upgrade my phone (going from a 4S to a 5S), but I can't decide if it'll be worth the MUCH worse coverage for my area. Due to NIMBY laws, Verizon is the only carrier with any towers near by. My husband and I have an old Verizon Family Plan with: 700 shared minutes of voice, 4GB data for husband's Droid Razr Maxx, 2GB data for my iPhone 4S, 1,000 text messages on my phone, and pay-per-text on my husband's phone: $139.98 per month. Last month we used under 200 minutes of voice, husband made 50 text messages, and I made 200, I used approximately 1.5GB data and husband used approximately 2.5GB. Husband has no desire whatsoever to upgrade his phone. Upgrading my phone will cost $149 for the phone plus $30 for a BS upgrade fee (I guess that's been around for a while, but as you can see, I haven't upgraded in quite some time). Given my family's usage, does T-mobile have a plan that offers a better deal? Is that plan still better considering the iPhone 5S would cost me $24.99 per month for 24 months (plus my husband would need to upgrade his phone as well)? If T-mobile is the better financial deal, will that ultimately make up for what I know will be very spotty service? (I know that's not something anyone can answer with 100% confidence, but if you live in a supposed dead zone for t-mobile and are still happy, I'd love to know).
