    I was with Verizon for years and switched to t-mobile. I live in MA just south of Boston and find t mobiles coverage spotty and have been to several places where I either have no service or 2g. Verizon is very strong in my area but dislike the way they do business. Any other recommendations of a network to try? Was thinking of trying straight talk with an AT&T sim.

    See 3G and 4G LTE Cell Coverage Map - OpenSignal to find the different levels of coverage in your area.

    I have T-Mobile, which has a decent connection where I live but is not great in more rural areas or indoors. However, its prepaid plan is nice and cheap. :)

    That is a great Idea, simple to try and if it does not work well simple to drop them as well.

    I can not say as to the coverage but I suspect they will have good coverage.

    If they do not you may want to try page plus. I think is the name, they are basically a Verizon reseller. I do not know if they offer Verizon lte though. Also Straight talk does have Verizon phones too but they have crappy ones for Verizon in my opinion.

    Yeah I have the nexus 5 so I can try a few different networks. T-Mobile isn't horrible but might try straight talk and see. No harm in that. Keep all posted.

    I am sorry to hear that. I have good coverage of Tmobile in Atlanta, Macon and Houston.

    You will certainly get better coverage with the AT&T sim. t-mobile is often hit and miss. Most of the time its perfectly fine, but certainly more dead areas than Verizon. Whenever I've tried t-mobile, I',m always checking my phone to make sure if I have a signal, something I never do when I'm on Verizon.

    Well it's official I have come to the realization that Verizon must be my carrier due to my geographic area. Grabbed an s4 from best buy today for free.
