After 7 years of service I jumped ship right before Christmas. Me, a loyal Sprint customer switched from Sprint to Verizon. Before I made the switch I thought long and hard about all of the different carriers out there. Today there are SO many different service and data plans. Family Sharing, Unlimited Data, Throttled Data, Pre-paid, etc. I suggest before you even go looking for a new carrier that you make out a list of things you are looking for by switching. My list was very simple:
I travel a LOT throughout the year because of my job as a blogger. While I was at home here in TN I had great coverage with Sprint except in the “mountain” areas. However, when I would travel and desperately need to be posting on social media it was a coin toss. Sometimes I had great service and sometimes I didn’t.
At this point I started asking around and doing my research. I asked fellow bloggers what carrier they were on and why. Surprisingly 8 out 10 people I polled were strong supporters of Verizon. After hearing so much about them I looked at their website. On the website they showed 2 maps and it sealed the deal for me. 1 shows Verizon’s 4G LTE coverage and the other shows Sprint:
A phone is only as good as the network it’s on.® Verizon’s super-fast 4G LTE network is the most reliable and in more places than any other 4G LTE network.
- Only Verizon’s 4G network is 100% LTE.
- Covers over 97% of Americans.
BINGO. I had my answer. They don’t call Verizon “The Most Reliable Network” for nothing. Coverage in CA especially was quite significant. I still wanted to make sure the switch was what I wanted so I kept looking around the site.
I love a good deal. ESPECIALLY if the deal not only saves me money, but offers me value. Which is why switching from Sprint to Verizon was the right thing for me to do. The great thing about Verizon is that they truly want your business. They make it super easy to switch carriers. One thing that caught my eye was that you can keep your old number even if you switched:
Switch to America’s most reliable wireless network and keep your number. Bring your existing number from your current wireless or landline service provider to Verizon Wireless.
With the click of a button you can check your eligibility. Plus, right now they have an awesome switch and save offer:
It’s been almost a full month since I switched and I don’t regret making the decision. I was in San Francisco a week ago and had no trouble with my connection. Others on the trip were not so lucky. That combined with a lower bill makes me a very happy smartphone user indeed. If you are thinking of making the switch to Verizon, what are you waiting for?? Come join me!
