I'm thinking about switching from Verizon to a pre-paid plan and was wondering who has the best coverage?

This is what I've found out so far:

Boost Mobile: 50.00 month unlimited plus taxes & fees

Straight Talk: 45.00 month unlimited pre-paid

Net 10: 50.00 a month unlimited

Right now we pay about 76.00 a month for unlimited with Verizon and that's for one phone and after taxes.

I just need to know who has the best coverage for this area before I switch. Anyone got any opinions or thoughts?

Nextel and now Boost have given me really good service for about 10 years. Boost is $50 plus state sales tax, no fees, in other words $53.00.

I need a better deal on phone service because I need to save money. Sprint is killing me!

Anywho, I live in Virginia near Louisa. Does Straight Talk have good coverage in this and the surrounding areas, or is there a better offer from someone else? Please help! T_T

Does anyone know how to find out what prepaid service unlimited plan or one with ability to provide more minutes, text, and possibly web will have the best coverage in general?(i.e. straight talk, net10, etc.) I'm leaning toward Straight Talk. I live in Charlotte, NC, and I desperately need some help on this one. Thanks!

p.s.
I own a samsung t401g. I mention it because I understand that as much as the coverage area varies, so does the functioning of the phones.

Thanks for any and all help!!:)

Not tried Boost. I love my straight talk....it uses Verizon towers. $45.00 unlimied, buying a longer period gets it cheaper.

Straight talk is good indeed. You have to make sure to get the phone model that you want cause some phones will only work on at&t towers whereas others will work only on verizon towers. I'm not 100% sure but i don't think buying a longer card for ST will make it cheaper. I think it all goes up in $45 increments. I think it's just for convience so you don't have to go out and buy a new card every month if you don't want to...

st is from net 10. they use att or verizon towers. i am in conflict with att cuz for the past 6 wks my service has been very poor. before then never had problems. they say that they are having issues with towers. well i believe with all the increase in prepaid customers that the towers are overloaded and seems the regular att customers are suffering. i know of other reg customers having poor service. att only will give a credit to your bill but that does not help when you need service that you are paying for. they will not let out of contract without paying a fine. i had use someones straight talk phone to talk to att about this problem cuz my att service would not put callls thru or would shut off during calls. att customers should file suit against them if this is not resolved. att customers are paying higher prices and all the added taxes and fees some that are hidden. while pre paid are using the towers and not having to pay all the high prices. i am def leaving att when my contract is up. but your best o
