Enjoy the $30 plan. I might be joining you on it.
VM runs on Sprint's network, but Sprint contract users get priority over pre-paid. If the tower is busy it will throttle all VM users so Sprint users get better speeds. Sprint also allows for roaming on Verizon's towers, but VM does not. VM is like the unwanted stepchild of Sprint and gets treated like dirt. That was one of the major reasons i'm switching to T-Mobile.
