Is it true that all/most MVNO's have degraded service levels, more dropped calls, etc?
The thing with MVNO's or other prepaid carriers is that you lose the ability to roam on other towers that aren't owned by the main carrier, but aren't charged because they have a licencing deal in place. There are plenty of times when on Verizon you see normal service, but aren't actually using a Verizon tower. If on prepaid, you wouldn't be able to use that tower. That's why most of the main carriers have two coverage maps, one for postpaid and one for prepaid. Should give those a look and see how your area is covered before deciding.
