Which phone service do you use





darthrevan
So as the title says, which service do you use? I personally use straight talk. I have an Android, so Ian required to use the unlimited 45 dollar plan.

I use some ancient Samsung E-900 on basically what is O2 UK coverage. Best reception in the UK which is needed for rural areas.

I live in the US, so we have more choices I guess, but where I live, Verizon covers the area the best. Though wish I had more choices as well. The straight talk phone I am uses Verizon towers.

I forget what O2 tri-something'd itself to when I turned my phone on in the US. Presumably whatever minor company O2 has control over but I had pretty average coverage in most places. The company I use makes use of O2 towers without the costs of actually being on O2. Prety awesome I'm sure you have similar. I think in built up areas popular networks actually have a negative effect on reception. If I remember correctly cellphone bars go down if there is someone near you using the same network. Might be different with all these fancy new machines Laughing

EDIT:
I remember now - my phone turned itself to about 3 different networks so it shared signal with various different networks (?). Maybe this is similar to other international deals.

Not sure if being near another person with the same service affects my signal. I know O2 wireless offers service here as well.

Though with mine I get a good deal I think,45 unlimited talk text and Web though of course not truly unlimited when it comes down to it.

We only have one service here that really counts. There is a second one that is into mobile phones, but the one I have is as good as it gets.

I use Vodafone Postpaid India...

Normally my monthly bill is around INR 700-800.

I think it is decent considering that i dont have a Landline Telephone at home..

I got a INR 399 Per month 3G plan!

Normally, i dont make many Long distance or international calls, but when i do, my phone bill spikes up a lot!

Currently I am using BSNL EVDO, which is a CDMA based service provides me 3.5mb/s speed and unlimited download and upload.

In China,I only have three choices, they are China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom.Personly I prefer to use service of China Mobile, on one hand it has very good stable experience, on the other hand, It provides us good after-sale service. Although TD-SCDMA network developed by China Mobile covers less area by WCDMA and CDMA2000.But it's cheaper .

I use China Mobile for my mobile in China.
PS: For telephones, only China Telecom is available here.

I use google voice for my home phone and a tracfone for the occasional mobile call. I spend probably $100/year on telephone service. That's not bad considering I have friends who spend $100/month!

My house phone service comes bundled in with my Internet service. My phone number is my account number. Ironically however, I can't remember when last I used it.

Hi,

along with land line

In the US I like Verizon's service although they are very expensive for a Postpaid plan. Perhaps a Prepaid plan is optimum.

Nah the prepaid version isn't any cheaper really. Verizon tends to be expensive.
