spouse has virgin mobile which is inexpensive but he can't use it in our mountain cabin. that's the only reason I have verizon. It used to be Alltel and verizon bought it out. if I could get coverage, would try t-mobile or something else but no real point. this is cheap. no taxes or contract.
Verizon is the company I am leaving. They require a new $100 payment each year. You will learn that on your anniversary.
I have pre-paid with Verizon.
I forgot this year to put in another $100 when my anniversary date came around.
I called them and they were able to put back the ~$35 that was still left - whew- , and then added another $100 + 7% tax in NJ.
Whereas with my mom, last year, all she had to do with T-mobile pre-paid was put in another $10 and she got another year of service.
