    So I bought a Straight Talk phone that works on the Verizon network. Basic phone. Samsung. It gets great coverage at my home which at&t did not. So far no dropped calls, or dead areas. The new phone works in all the areas that my iPhone didn't. It's $30 a month which my at&t bill was usually $90+ a month, so saving $60 a month now. I'm pleased so far with the switch.

    When I cancelled with at&t they were unsympathetic with me as to be expected. For several months I told them about the bad reception and they told me it was the SIM card. I had it replaced. Same issue. Then I was told it was the towers. Then was told to reset the phone. All of which did nothing to improve the reception. I had repeated dropped calls, dead zones, and no service areas. Add a $90 phone bill onto that and changing was a no brainer. So when my contract expired I fired them. Best decision I've made in awhile.

    No problem. I'm happy with my decision. Try one of the prepaid companies on the Verizon network. Seems to have really great coverage and the price is awesome.
