Verizon vs. Sprint vs.T-Mobile vs. ? - So Cal coverage & cell phone devices
I have just about had it with Verizon after eight years. My loyalty has been rewarded with lower discounts given in their "New Every Two" program, and I'm not really sure if I want, or can justify a need, for a new smartphone that they are seemingly trying to steer me towards with their limited selection and variety of Feature Phones (non-Smartphones), as I consider an upgrade since my LG Chocolate 3 (VX8560) is on the blink.
I have been considering a switch to Sprint, or perhaps T-Mobile, and have just started to invest some time into researching both companies. So, I come to the 'Forum of Technical Know-how' here at LGK Nation and ask the following input from anybody, but paticularly, those that live in Southern California:
(1) If you're a Verizon subscriber, convince me to stay! Convince me along the lines of their service plan prices that are seemingly more than their competitors, and, also, why their Smartphone devices kick more ass than Sprint's or T-Mobile's.
(2) For those with Sprint or T-Mobile, why does your provider give you better service? Plan prices are better? Better service in your area? Also, what do you like about the particular device you use with your service?
(3) Factory store, or retailer? Any preference?
