Best Cell Phone Services

The Top TenXW

1Verizon

I have had At&t and virgin mobile, sprint and tmobile With everything one I have always had a issue with something weather it be the phones them selfs messing up or the coverage area of service being terrible. I have had a verizon cell phone new one every upgrade not cause they don't work right or nothing but just cause I wanted a new one. I have only ever had to take one phone in because it wasnt working correctly and they were very nice and solved the problem quickly and gave me a new phone. I started with prepaid and then went to a plan I have been a Verizon customer for 5 years and I wouldn't leave them for nothing!

I have Verizon and I never get dropped calls. I think that Verizon should be number 1! when I clicked on the link I thought that it would be between at&t and verizon not verizon and t-mobile! Also if you walk into verizon you get great costumer service and if you walk into t-mobile there's like nobody there! but soon enough verizon will be back on top!

I use to be AT&T customer, they are the pits, glad to switch to Verizon that year when we was able to switch wireless company and keep our the same pnone number I had about 4-5 month to end my contract with AT&T I couldn't wait I cancel my service with AT&T and paid the early cancellation fee and went to Verizon and I know people also switch from T-Mobile to Verizon!

Verizon has really improved these last few weeks - Unknownguy

2AT&T

I had verizon, never got reception and it never worked overseas which sucked. Now I got the iphone on AT@T and it works great. Barely get dropped calls and once in a while I dont have service but after about a minute or two not having service it comes back and works even better. The biggest advantage about AT&T is that works overseas, this is especially helpful when you go on vacation.

It's the verizon service and reception at a cheaper price. Service reps are all nice, kind, caring and understanding. Their level of professionalism is through the roof! I cell reception everywhere-in the mountains, in my basement, etc. I know people who are paying 150 a month for one line on Verizon's network and can't even get the reception I get.

I love at&t in are area we have no cell service but now we have full bars, because of at&t.

Using for like entire life and never had problems! - ferrel_tova

3T-Mobile

Yes T-Mobile. I laugh every time someone talks about oh at&t this verizon that. I can go to Europe, Asia, or North America and find T-Mobile. What about you? It is also a lot cheaper, which leaves me with some extra money in my pocket for traveling ;). Well I just have to say T-Mobile is really great and I will continue using their service.

I hate how everyone says that T-Mobile sucks but the truth is they don't have it so how are they suppose to know that! Yea it might have been sucky before in the past but it's super fast now and it has unlimited data which is fantastic and is cheap! Verizon and AT&T are super expensive and don't even have unlimited data and waste all your money! Verizon isn't even that fast like they say online and through social media! It sucks! I honestly think that T-Mobile is the best phone company in the United States of America & I'm glad to have it because all my friends have AT&T and Verizon and they are always complaining about that there data finished or that they cannot waste it because they don't have unlimited! So to fix that get T-Mobile and you will have a great phone company! That is super awesome! It's the best phone company especially for iPhones in the entire world! So stop paying a lot of expensive money on AT&T and Verizon and go to T-mobile & don't even go to sprint because I had ...more

T-Mobile is super cheap. Right now, you can get a flagship phone on T-Mobile with unlimited talk, text, and web (well, for the first 500mb) for $75 bucks a month. Which is way better than companies like At&T (who charge $60 a month for unlimited talk, no text, and 300 mb in ram) or Verizon which flat out wants at least $80 a month for a "share all plan".

T-Mobile is the best CHEAP mobile competitor out there. - therewerenousernames45

4Sprint

I've been with Sprint for about 6 years now, and have had no issues so far. My interaction with customer service has always been quick and painless, and I rarely get dropped calls (rarely because I travel through areas that don't have good coverage by any carrier).

I carry a Verizon BlackBerry for work as well. I have noticed that when I am out in the middle of no where, I will have a better signal on my iPhone vs my BlackBerry. Granted they are two different technologies, so it's not a fair comparison, but it is all I have to go off of.

The few times I have been in a Sprint store, they have always been very helpful towards me. Even if I just wanted to ask a quick questions, they seem to always have the answers.

I have had Sprint for 3 years now and have no complaints. They have been more than helpful with any questions or concerns I have had. My husband had Verizon before and could never get a straight answer from them. The only complaint I have about Sprint is that I used to be able to upgrade my phone every year and now they've quit doing that and gone back to two year upgrades.

I was with AT&T for about 6yrs. I my estimation, the service I had with them went from high to low; then high and finally barely mediocre. I wanted and needed to switch, and chose Sprint as my next carrier. I have been with them for nearly 4 years and haven't been sorry. Glad I made the switch.

It is better because the word " Sprint" means fast, which means fast customer service

5Virgin Mobile

Virgin is tops! Price and coverage. Tried them all and many others not listed. Frank comments concerning what is passed off as "service" would undoubtedly lead to law suits. Except for the Canadian Koodoo and the Life Alert scam, hidden fees are the mainstay of other cell phone providers. The other companies are grossly over-priced; the contracts are oppressive. With no wires and no service fleet, cellphone service should be about $9. There are no free phones-don't fall for that scam.

Be advised the US governments are beginning to level fees and taxes even when service national (hint: this is illegal taxation).

They do have the best and cheapest phone plans in the business. I love my LG Optimus V Android phone, and plan on getting the LG Optimus Black when its available. But I think The best thing about them is their customer service. Always listens carefully, and helps you with your problem then calls back to make sure everything is OK. I have Sprint Also, Also good Company. I have had AT&T, and Verizon in the past, too expensive.

I love them! Great service... Great Prices... Great phones... I have been with more cell phone companies then most and I must say in the areas that I travel to it works.. I love the GPS and all the app's.. I have a Droid... I just went from a iPhone to a Droid and I love that I save %55 a month. Great reception, easy texting, Youtube, facebook,3G, and all of the above.. Customers service is also fast to work with you.. Also fast number ports...

It works everywhere I need it too I've had it three years never had a problem

6US Cellular

I love US-Cellular, never had a phone that didn't have a signal anywhere. The phone selection isn't great but at least they carry LG and of course Samsung for Samsung and iPhone are probably the best out there. They also carry windows phones which are more like computers which is neat.

I have had four carries including Verizon and like US Cellular best. My phone picks up a signal just about everywhere I go. Just wish they had more phones to choose from.

There is only five places in the state of West Virginia that I don't have reception.

I never had a problem which they didn't solve on my first call. Prices are also reasonable.

7Cricket

It is the best service in mobile and cricket is also very popular in India. - subhashsahu

Cricket provides the same, if not, better service for better, more affordable prices than most other carriers. It does not cheat on for the public's money like other carriers have done to me in the past. I'm very happy with the service and I don't see myself changing carriers any soon. Keep up the good work!

No probs, but reaching a live person with customer service is my only gripe. Other than that, I have everything I want at a great price.

I have a cricket phone it is one of the best phones. Ever

8MetroPCS

I have had Verizon, AT&T and Metro out of the 3 I wouldn't use anything but Metro even if you paid me. Verizon and AT&T BOTH ripped me off! They are way too expensive and jerks to deal with. Metro is getting better and better. I haven't had any dropped calls and the coverage keeps expanding. You know exactly what you get with Metro and the don't charge you up the wazoo for going over any stupid minutes!

I have been with MetroPCS for my entire life, and it's the best companies I could ever have, the phones you buy their aren't they expensive. I got a Galaxy Grand Prime for $79, and it's so huge. The Galaxy Light is $25, the phones are so easy to deal with and, its not expensive for monthly plan. Also, the Internet works good when your out camping. I went camping with my family, and I got to watch YouTube, and netflix.

I have been with metro for four years now and I've got to say it has been treating me pretty good so far I have had three phones from metro I plan on getting a new one and even though the internet is a little slow its still pretty good

I've had ALL of the others. They all suck in their own fashion. Metro has always lived up to expectations and their network has quietly gotten bigger and bigger.

9Vodafone

Faster than other phone company to charge online with paypal, I use another company and is very slow to charge the phone with paypal.. It's the only thing I can say because I don't use vodafone.. But all my family use vodafone and the only thing someone complained is the call center.

Not the best service but great value for money

I've been using it for past eight years.. It's good

Power to Everyone!

10Airtel

Best service ever. I always prefer Airtel over other service providers. It's expensive but good quality always comes in a higher price.

My Broadband plan is also from Airtel and I have to say that they are the best when you compare to other providers.

Again expensive but I choose 8 mbps plan and got the wifi router cum modem free.

Thumbs up Airtel!

Awesome network coverage.. Expensive, sure. But you never run out of signal bars anywhere.. Currently has the 4th largest consumer base in the world..

It is best network among the all. Verizon is best but service is not at upto mark, then AIRTEL

Best in terms of Internet packages

The Contenders

11Straight Talk

Ok, Here's the deal THIS IS THE BEST PHONE COMPANY I HAVE FOUND.

Verizon: Great Phone Service, Way overpriced! A monopoly that doesn't care about your problems. You could buy a $2000 car with 3% interest that is still cheaper than a standard plan with Verizon...

AT&T: In my opinion better than Verizon, Older and better.

T-mobile: Just Pathetic, Great everything except for the reason you buy a phone, Service.

Sprint: Better than T-mobile but not by much.

Virgin Mobile: Cheap, Great if your in the city! But still doesn't have amazing service.

And By Personal Favorite!

Straight Talk: Great service, (Same as AT&T and Verizon), HALF THE COST, UNLIMITED EVERYTHING FOR $45 A MONTH! WHAT MORE DO I HAVE TO SAY?

Bottom line: Verizon is ok, but I've been with them for years and never had anything special, THEY KEPT SENDING ME BILLS AFTER I HAD CANCELLED THE SERVICE! Which tells me that they just want the $$$$$$, and nothing else.

I ...more

Vzw with out vzw pricing hm not a hard choice to make

Get Verizon and ATT service without giving them your newborn child.

I have my phone service from there, & it's great

12TracFone

I have a TracFone and have fine service (even though I'm the only one in my family with one) it makes it cheaper for my dad as well. Rather than having great service and have being expensive it has good service and is incredibly cheap.

I like TracFone because it's pretty convenient, and you don't have to pay a monthly fee. You just can recharge your minutes and service days by buying a card. - AlexTopTens

I can't afford 30. a month so I love my Tracfone Smartphone with triple everything. Since I don't talk a lot, it cost's me about $8. something a month to have this phone and it has free wifi. Refill every 90 days and rollover min, texts, data. Who else can have all that for about 8 bucks a month?

My tracfone had better reception than my moms galaxy S2

13Alltel

alltel has the best service ever. I have never had problems with my phone til verizon took over that sucks. alltel needs to come back to south carolina please. please come back

Alltel ROCKED Never had any problems with them. Then i get booted to verizon and now my phone sucks! But if I want to pay 40 extra bucks a month I can have a cool phone again!

I also miss alltel. It was great phone company. Had 2 cell phone and internet for a great price and good signal. Where I live is in the country so many carries don't have signal.

Verizon sucks. We want the "Tell" back!

14Koodo

30 a month unlimited data, texting, calling I don't know you tell me

How come Koodo is not in the top ten? It's ranked Canada's best cellphone carrier! They also have amazing plans and phones. The people there are extremely helpful and nice. It also doesn't have fixed contracts. This should be in the top ten at least!

Koodo is a cool name... more of a retarded name but still retarded

16Rogers

Rogers is an excellent service, however has no chance on this list, due to the fact that it is a Canadian phone service.

I have Rogers and it's the fastest

My dad is telling my whole family to use it

Rogers 17! I mean what seriously its high quality and...

Three has to be the best, in Ireland it has amazing 3G coverage, with Samsung's infrastructure in 4G and the cheapest, €20 a month gives you unlimited internet, Talk and text, it's also one of the biggest across Asia and Europe

20Consumer Cellular

Great firm, just purchased an Android Smart phone great purchase.
It's not your father's phone company!

This company is great. Top rated in Kiplingers and have been a customer for 2 years. My bill is roughly 1/2 of my friends bill with at&t. They deserve a look.

Great service. NO contract required. Flexible voice and data plans without fees for making changes. Offer the latest in iPhones and Android. Great coverage.

I am on SSDI and I find this plan is cheap... Cheap... Cheap! The coverage is the same as Verizon. My family is about 1000 miles south and over the many years I have belonged to Consumer Cellular I have NEVER had a weak connection or dropped call! The phones are great, the prices greater and no contract! You pay ONLY for the minuets used, not a pre-paid plan, free activation, no contract, great coverage could you ask for more? A company that is NOT just for 'Old People'. If you like to save, a company for you!
