Best Cell Phone Services

The Top Ten

1 Verizon

I have had AT&T, Virgin Mobile, Sprint and T-mobile. With every one I have always had a issue with something whether it be the phones themselves 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 wasn't 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 Wireless is without a doubt the best. I started with AT&T and had decent coverage with them. This was quite a while ago. Then AT&T got out of the business where I lived forcing me to change. I went to Sprint and still had decent coverage. Then I moved. My new home was in a rural area and the Sprint service was very poor. I then made a move to Nextel. The walkie-talkie feature was neat but the coverage was poor. When that contract ran out I found myself back with AT&T. I was amazed at how terrible the service was. Dropped calls, dead zones around town, more expensive than anything I'd had before, etc. But the thing that made me crazy was the billing. Always had incorrect billing amount every month, If I didn't spend an hour or two looking over my bill, I'd pay as much as $40,00 more per month. Customer service was helpful in getting over-billing issues resolved, but way should I have to spend that time after every new bill came out getting it corrected? I shouldn't have too! ...more

2 AT&T

Yeah AT&T costs a little bit more, but you get service just about everywhere unlike the others... I would never change.

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.

Had about 3yrs now, a little extra in the price but the service is definitely worth it!

3 T-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.

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.

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

My phones and computers are t-mobile. My T.V. is spectrum WHICH IS TERRIBLE! SPECTRUM IS THE WORST! Anyway, I used to have AT&T and it sucks. All their reviews are like complaints. They never make ANYTHING easy! It's annoying. Have a slight problem with your internet or need help on how to do something? Get ready to spend 8 hours, talking to a robot and listening to annoying music. I travel a lot. I mean A LOT. T-mobile is so much cheaper. And I have unlimited data. AND I can text, call, etc. and I have service all over the world. It's PERFECT for travelling. Verizon is also great though. My iPad has Verizon and Verizon is also great too. I have service and am able to text and call and everything, but only in certain countries. But I just like t-mobile better.

4 Sprint

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.

Have had Sprint for over 20 yrs. after I got divorced bc my "wifey love" would not allow me to have a cell phone. I had a choice & I chose Sprint...

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.

5 Virgin 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...

I've been with Virgin for over 10 years and have NEVER had any problems! The only reason I've ever had to call Customer service was to change phones! GREAT service anywhere!

6 Cricket

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

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.

Coming up!

7 MetroPCS

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 Metro since around when they started. I don't use the internet on my phone much, so I don't have a big opinion on it. Everything I do use has increasingly improved since then, and the price has always been fair. I've tried T-mobile otherwise, their service is shameful and leaving them is like a divorce. I've never had a definitive problem with Metro, they're quite straightforward. The price is quite fair, always has been.

8 US 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.

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

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.

good people good phone and service they help u when u need it and the salespeople I use take time to help

9 Vodafone

Great company because they unblocked my old Sony Ericsson in 2019, which was a phone I had used back in 2012 or earlier just to play around with it.

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

It has the biggest amount of pre-paid online data usage for the smallest price - and re-charging with credit from a bank account only takes a minute or two!

10 Airtel

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

Network coverage to the fullest!

The Contenders

11 TracFone

I love it. Don't use cell phone very much and my plan is extremely reasonable!

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.

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?

12 Straight Talk


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

The phone service is pretty good, and the price is right, but if you ever need service, try the chat on their website first. Calling gets someone who only just recently learned English, working from a script. Oddly, Tracphone's service center seems to be in America, they own Straighttalk, but can't help you. Tracphone's number came up when I was looking for ST's service number. So as long as you can use the self service, it's quite good.

Cheap service

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

13 Boost Mobile

I've been with Boost for about 7 years now and wouldn't think of going anywhere else!

Boost mobile and virgin mobile should be at least#5&6. Great phones prices, great phones, and good plans. At&t, Verizon, sprint, and t-mobile are too pricey but are great as well.

I've loved having Boost Mobile. I've had it for 4 years now and have not problems with service and only mild expected problems with my phone. Plus its only 30 bucks a month! Kidding me that is so cheap!

Run to a Boost store to switch if you are not with a current Sprint carrier through 6/1 and get 4 lines unlimited for $100 bucks! We have 3 lines with Boost Mobile and have had ZERO issues! Best value out there!

14 Orange
15 Koodo

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!

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

Better than that piece of crap Rogers

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

16 Amaysim
17 Consumer Cellular

Consumer Reports rated consumer cellular number one out of all the carriers Why go with anybody else

I still use AT&T towers and have good service, but my bill is one-third of AT&T! ! This is not primarily a data company, but is a great phone company. Customer service is tons better than the big boys.

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

Better, cheaper and tons more reliable than T-Mobile. Customer service is paramount with Consumer Cellular, and I'm hard pressed to find ANY company in the USA that I'm more passionate about! I love the flexibility of their phone plans, you can change at any time, and paying your bill is simply a breeze, just 3 clicks and done!

18 3

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

Best service in Ireland

Boi this is the best

19 Net10

Good service 40 bucks a month not bad.

GOAT Service... All those big companies have a problem with their network connection, while Net10 works almost anywhere

I have had it for years and years 35 a month and no problems

20 Appalachian Wireless

Is this the only company that provides service to the people in the Appalachian

I like this phone provider

Better services in the Eastern Kentucky Area there can be with 4g LTE services covering wide spread.

21 Ting

My wife and I are part of a 6 phone plan. Our total for the two of us averages about $37 a month.

I am satisfied Ting customer. I pay $12 / month for the same quality as Sprint. Good customer service too.

Best service because you get sprint but you only pay for what you use so it's cheaper. My bill is normally $10 to $20 which is pretty cheap.

Cut my bill by about 2/3. About 65% more money left in my pocket- same service. Lifer.

22 EE

EE care about their costumers like me. They are really nice and friendly, the best British Phone service.

I use EE and I think it's one of the best, I get service in most places and they care about new and long customers.

The best and most underrated mobile service in the world

The very best nothing else compares

23 Rogers

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

What 16! come on that's my provider

24 Ooma

I had my Ooma phone for six years at NO monthly cost! Today if purchased, there is a low monthly cost due to 911 calling feature. It is still well worth it,.
