    my work phone: samsung galaxy s3 Verizon.
    my personal phone samsung galaxy nexus Verizon.
    i would like to keep my personal contacts and database and personal number separate from work being the first thing they take in letting you go is the phone. my personal contract ends march.

    I want to move to prepaid. is there any service where i can use the nexus?
    any service i can use the nexus without flashing required?

    if i cant use the nexus any thoughts on the best prepaid service of Oswego, IL for signal strength and price?

    I call the same few people with my personal phone and have never gone over 1Gb data. i have wifi at home.

    I read an article where they said go unlocked phone and gsm service as better than cdma, not sure why.

    thanks for any advice guys. :D

    Well gsm is controlled via satellite and don't require manual programming and all the fixing that needs to be done is throughout the sims card the CDMA doesn't require a sims card but may need a 4glte aka iccu card . the CDMA has been told that it may go down in 2015 . that's only a maybe til then if the CDMA is cancelled we can only use gsm . now as Verizon has done was to put every 4glte phone as a contract so the only 3g and CDMA is prepaid . so what phone do u want to open on a plan or prepaid service

    thanks for the reply Brian. Phone wise im flexible i like moto x, note, s3, nexus 5. i am more concerned with picking a good prepaid service. t mobile has great prices and good coverage where i live but for local midwest travel ATT probably has more towers.

    T-Mobile has good but in a few months such as spring or summer T-Mobile will have alot of towers but yes I say moto g or the next5 or any gsm device and make sure u get unlocked if not ask carrier after 90 days of continued service to request a unlock or get a unlock code paid for and you can try any carrier with gsm .

    You could just move to Straight Talk. They are prepaid and run on Verizon's network.
