But it is wise to ask Verizon what they are willing to do. After your out of contract your bill should drop being your no longer paying the fee for buying the phone. Hope that helps you a little......
I have Verizon and have the Samsung Galaxy S4 and have had this carrier for 15 years. My phone was bought at Costco and it only cost me $21. I get unlimited talk/text but only 5 gb of data but plenty for me . Later RJD

I have Sprint and have had them for a very long time. I have unlimited everything with a limited amount of talk time which I never even exceed, but thus far my favorite is my unlimited data. Half way thru this month and I already used about 50 gigs of data. The DW says they are losing their a@@es with me. haha

For me personally, it is a big deal I can specifically show people I know what I do for a living. I do agree that AT&T was late to the party though

This thread has been building significantly and has helped many.
To those who add your comments on your Cell Phone carriers, Thank you.


I think I may start a new thread on what Android phone do you like that will last for years and good on all carriers.

I just want a phone so I don't need a 4g connection. I use net10. 200 min a month for $15. And the minutes roll over each month plus it is on the version network. It seems to work every place I go and no roaming charges. Works for me.

I use Ting.com and have two unlocked Android phones. We're not real heavy users and our bill is usually under $40.00 a month for phone, text and data.

I think this thread is still eye opening when it comes to cellphone services.
This business is getting like cable and Sat dish service.
They want to lock you in for a few years and you are stuck.
You never get a phone that you totally own unless you buy a Nexus phone which is unlocked and can be used on any network.
I'm still too confused and the question is why do they do it to us.
Why do we put up with this!
I'm ready to reactive my home phone and get rid of my cell phones because it is just not worth the extra costs especially when many just want a phone and don't need internet access for data or emails.
I'm just fuming so don't get all in an uproar folks.
This is much cheaper than a psychologist session. lol

I'm pretty sure the Big-4 cellphone companies are rapidly getting away from contracts. You can go to any one of them, buy a phone and select the service you want with no long term contract.

If you happen to take advantage of the zero interest payments on a new phone you shouldn't confuse that with a contract. Basically, the phone company is issuing you a credit card which you can pay off next month, in six months or by the end of the terms you agree to. I don't know how one buys an android phone but you can go direct to Apple for an iPhone and get the same deal. A contract plan means you are tied in for X months or pay a penalty. A zero interest phone plan is no different than the zero interest stuff offered by Best Buy, Lowes, etc etc.

I haven't been under contract with AT&T for five or more years. I don't buy or finance my phones through them. If I want a new model I just go to Apple and buy an unlocked phone and take my business anywhere I want. AT&T just happens to have a month-to-month plan that beats any other provider overall. Others may need a different plan that works for them.

The bottom line is you can get a free phone and be under a contract (although those deals are rapidly going away) or you can buy a phone and have no contract. In the end there's little to no difference in price.

Agreed. You can buy Androids online and use them also. I don't have a Verizon "contract", I do have phone payments, but can pay them off if I choose to.

So, my terrible guesstimate from the initial poll (that didn't include Verizon so we chose other) is that about 50% are with Verizon. I wish it had been listed from the start to be more sure
