Finally kicked AT&T to the curb Mom finally agreed to switch to Verizon. We bought two Samsung Convoy dumb phones and added mom and grandma to my share everything plan at $30 a phone. We were paying two phone bills ($120 to VZW and $136 to AT&T). I had 900 minutes and mom shared 1400 minutes with grandma. Now we have unlimited talk and text and 4GB of data and I now have an iPad and Jetpack in the mix all for $200 per month.
Call quality is much better, calls to her don't go straight to voicemail (as they did with AT&T due to no signal), and she can hear better on VZW (she has a slight hearing loss due to age, being in her mid 50's).
I wish I still lived in Iowa; Everything there from rent and groceries to Cable TV is much cheaper in Iowa (especially with an overbuilder in town).
