Like the title says have been with Verizon on same # for 15 years... Dying for the nexus 5 and not waiting around for Verizon and Google to stop acting like immature babies so I decided to get the nexus 5 and test it out a month before jumping ship from 15 years loyal Verizon customer. Why not only $45 to test it anyway unlimited everything until 2.5gb data. ST gave me a new number since I didn't want to deactivate my Verizon line without testing it out. Its been nearly a month now and am floored with ST's coverage. Don't get me wrong their customer service are a bunch of morons and don't compare to Verizon's but there actual speed of their LTE network... Wow. Was very hesitant to leave Verizon although they can be aholes I've been with them so long its not an easy choice. What I love: -network coverage -network speed (see images) speed test 10mb downloads on ST vs Verizon LTE pulling 3mb -monthly cost --- Verizon $100/mo 2 year contract compared to ST $45/mo... Why didn't I switch earlier?!? -any phone I want I can activate on ST compared to Verizons power trip What I don't like: -customer service huge language barrier and huge lack of knowledge in staff -phone insurance doesn't exist for BYOP -misperception but almost have that "ashamed" feeling since most prepaid plans have they negative reputation Now that I've heard of tmobile 's $30/mo at 5gb thinking about giving that a try since Verizon wants to screw me with $220 ETF... anybody ever been on both T-Mobile and ST for a comparison input would be helpful???
