Costco also has Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, etc...phones at reduced prices. I bought my Samsome Galaxy 4 for a pennie. Hard to be that!

I'm switching to Verizon/Straight Talk as soon as I get home from the rally. I have Sprint/Virgin and have been without service for 10 days! Glad Ann's Straight Talk is along with us! Works fine nearly everywhere!

The cell phone biz has become like used cars for some time now which is one reason I sold my stores and got out. Remember, the price of the phone is one thing but the rate plan is really what you are paying for. When you get that $.01 Android from Costco you will be paying $25/month more than if you do not have a contract. Costco doesn't sell phones without a contract and it is not even Costco that you are dealing with in reality it is a company called Wireless Advocates.

We have the contract, my rate has been the same for several years. Actually, they just gave me a extra gig of data each month for free.

Thanks everyone!!! Yeah, pretty convinced Verizon is the way to go since I will be full-timing starting in Oct and have no idea what mountain I may wind up on. Hooked on iPhones so that's a given. Will be watching to see if any new plans materialize within the next few months.

I'm paying $99.99 per month for 20GB, the $ they offered to Millenicom users when Verizon shut them down.

Me too, and I'm quite satisfied with the service. At home I normally use about 14-15 GB per month, but on the road so far I've noticed I use quite a bit less. I've used only 6.4 GB so far in May, barely a third of my monthly allotment. I need to find some OS iso images to download or something.

Netflix or Slacker should take care of that.
