Here’s a puzzle I’m sure you all have pieces to: Jenn needs the team to huddle up for a moment and talk cell phones.
So, after being here 2 years I am officially fed up with cell phones!
When we arrived, we signed up for monthly plans at AU. The coverage was great, voicemail message could be in English, and a discount after a year of membership. It cost us almost $100 a month, and my husband is deployed at least 2 weeks a month and I used mine only occasionally…it seemed like a waste of money.
So then we switched to SoftBank pay-as-you-go phones. The cost was much cheaper, but the reception is awful! Plus, the minutes only rollover if you activate another card before your current one expires. The husband being gone a lot comes into play here as well.
My question is, what has everyone found the best cell phone service to be? Help!
