    So without getting to much into detail the plan we have for US Cellular (I don't pay my own bill, my parents do but I pay for upgrades in phones and what not) we have is ~$350 a month for 5 lines. It's so high because we thought we switched to a newer one and they didn't do anything.

    I'd like to switch my family to Verizon, probably going with the 12GB data for 5 phones (with a new iPhone 6s) for ~215+tax a month. Basically it breaks down to $20 line fee(x5) $30 device payment (for the iPhone) other 3 phones are 2x iPhone 5s and two Nexus phones and $80 for 12gb data. All of them besides my dads phone should work on Verizon. which is why we want to get him a new iPhone since he likes his iPad.

    They told me the first month they charge 2x the normal fee plus activation. Is this true?

    How has your coverage been? Here in SW Wisconsin Verizon is basically king, and anywhere I travel I see that Verizon is basically king of reception.

    I rarely have reception issues with Verizon. Still milking my unlimited data plan as much as I can too. Not sure about the payment stuff though. I just pay my mom for my part of the bill.

    I switched from AT&T to Verizon, but felt no difference so far other than more money to my bill. That's all you have to know. They think they da shit, but they the shit.

    And Seeker lies all the time. There's no such thing as unlimited data in Verizon.

    I've only once in my entire life encountered a place that Verizon was the not the best reception. It was absolutely last after every major US Carrier.

    Other than that I think everywhere I've gone they've been the best coverage out of any carrier.

    I'm still on US Cellular and my new house location has horrible service, but my sister switched to Verizon and gets better service and the new customer deal too, so I would recommend it. When my contract is up, I plan on switching.

    New Data Plans

    Interesting. I don't use THAT much data, but I would pay the $20 for 16GB up from 8 lol.

      That alone sold me.

      I think overall, the switch is worth the price.

      @PeNguiN it be about a $20 difference for like 1-2 more GB on Verizon vs US Cellular. I think that is completely worth the price for more data, and a much MUCH greater *actual* country wide network lol.

      Yes there is. I'm still on it, grandfathered in. 3 lines unlimited data for $195

      What was the question? 2x the monthly charge plus activation? Seems sort of right, it shouldn't exactly 2x...more like 1.5x. Your first bill will be added on top of the monthly rate, basically prorating.

        Yeah I called actual Verizon, they said no double bill. Basically $100 on top of normal bill for activation. other than that that's it. Normal bill would be $220ish with the new plan and $250ish with 3 new phones instead of just one.

          I think I'll probably be okay with the new 16gb plan. and if not well $20 more for 24gb. lol. My mom dad and brother maybe use 1-2gb a month. So between my other brother and I we'd have basically 14gb to share. or 20gb.

          They are releasing new plans with safety zone and bumped up data buckets/increasing price. Not sure if you recently checked those out.
