I just purchased the MOTOROKR z6m from MetroPCS. I got the $50 plan called "Extreme Unlimited" which is their highest cost option that includes a ton of free services and unlimited local and long distance calls.

What do you currently have?

iPhone3G with AT&T and it's associated costs. I think I come in around 110 bucks total for 4 lines, 5G data on 3 of the 4, unlimited data on iphone, and unlimited text on all.

Blackberry 8830 World Edition from Verizon.

Blackberry Data plan (BES) to connect to my corporate servers
900 minutes/month
Unlimited N&W calls
Unlimited iN (Verizon to Verizon) calls
500 texts/unlimited Verizon texting
Blackberry Tethering Add-On (lets me use the Blackberry like an air card for my laptop)

Comes in at around $125/month. I'm on a corporate plan where all mobile users pool their minutes. We get some corporate discounts off of that $125 price (maybe $10-15/mo.)

Just switched from Sprint to Alltel. All I need is a simple phone that makes phone calls, with Sprint I had a Razr V3m, and so did my wife with a 1400 minute family plan. With Alltel, I like the V3m and ended up getting a V3a, which I now regret, Motorola really got stingy with this phone. Anyway the plan is 900 minute family plan with 10 my circle contacts.

Alltel has some decent plans. Enjoy them while you can...you'll be Verizon pretty soon.

I have a HTC Touch Diamond on Sprint.

34 a month after taxes (SERO 500) Gets me:

5pm nights and weekends
1000 peaks mins
Unlimited internet/tv
Unlimited texting/pic message

I'm keeping this plan for life! They'll have to pry this plan away from me. I've never even come close to going over my mins.

I know, I dont think Verizon will be that bad though. My dad had them for years and left on principal due to a misunderstanding with a phone he had ordered.
Verizon (coverage wise) is by far the best in the NY metro area. No contest.

Their plans are not as generous as some of the other carriers, though.

I've been with them for over 10 years, and have been very happy. I have users with phone/Blackberrys with all carriers, and I never get a complaint about Verizon's domestic coverage. Going out of North America is another issue, unless you have one of Verizon's global phones.

Tmobile with a Razr2 (unlocked European version). Tmobile has given me good service so I can't complain. Although it seems like I'm always the one without service when I go to out of the way places like camping or whatever.

Yeah...in the more populated areas (city/immediate metro), the coverage is very similar in most cases. Once you get into the suburbs or more rural areas, you start to see differences. Sometimes those differences can be rather dramatic.

Sprint Everything!

I have it on a Moto Qc9 and I have unlimited everything for only $99 a month.
Unlimited talk, text, and internet.
I can stream Sirius and even use my phone as a high speed modem for my laptop.

I had Alltel but with the buyout, now Verizon, which is awesome. Coverage is so much better, I can actually use it in my house now. I upgraded the LG Scoop I had to a Blackberry Curve, on a family plan 1400 shared mins, mine has 1500 text(use to be unlimited on Alltel :( ). Also have the unlimited web & email. I sooo love the blackberry. :)

I have the 1st Gen iPhone on AT&T with 450 minutes an unlimited data.

At my last house in the boonies I had 5 bars all the time. Now in my new house much closer to a major city, I have no service.

Then I had to get a house phone. :mad:
