    Hey everyone, I'll leave AT&T and T-Mobile out and I'll explain why. So, let's do a poll comparison between Verizon and Sprint. Personally I had both in the past and Sprint CS is extremely poor. So, what does everyone recommend between Verizon and Sprint in terms of overall between pricing for the plans, the network coverage (city/rural), etc? Right now I have Project Fi. I do have my own device (Nexus 6) which I got from someone in my family at no cost.

    Now why not AT&T? I owe them about $1,300 and I do not have the full amount to pay off.

    Now why not T-Mobile? A couple of reasons. They are not happy with me and in fact sent me a letter saying that if exceptions are keep being made than my communication would be made in a form of writing or my services would be terminated. Second reason is, I left and received a final bill of over $1,000 or something like that.

    Since you have an unlocked Nexus - have you looked at MVNOs? Most will be cheaper then Sprint or Verizon.

    In general Verizon has better rural coverage, but reception in every area is different - you could ask other people in your city how their signal is.

    You can also check which carriers have good service in your area - here are three sites that track carrier reception strength from users:

    Thanks so much! No, I had not looked into MVNOs because I don't know what that is and never heard of them before.

    They are carriers who use the big phone companies cell towers, some of them:

    Verizon - Page Plus, Total Wireless

    Sprint - Boost, Virgin Mobile, Ting

    Straight Talk, Net10 use several carriers towers.

    I use Verizon only because of their coverage. Now that I'm on a prepaid plan and have an unlocked phone I might give T Mobile a whirl for a month.
