Talk To Me PEOPLE!!!

Hello? Hello?? Who is this-is???? he he he.....

Back in December 2005 (I think!!!) Jordan and I signed up with a local phone company in Idaho for our cellular service so we could bundle our home phone, cell phone and internet into one bill. We've been with them since then, cancelling our home phone when we moved to Oklahoma, cancelling our internet when we went to Clearwire, but maintaining our cell phone service since there were no roaming fees (even living out here in Oklahoma), no long distance charges, etc. Well, we got a postcard in the mail from our friendly cell phone company about 3 months ago saying that they were very sorry, but they were going to be disconinuing their current cellular services in October and that we would need to make arrangements before then (and if we didn't, the phones would simply be shut off). WHAT THE HECK???? Yeah, that's what we thought.

So, since then we're spoken with the phone company, and apparently they are going to switch to a different carrier. Right now they're "piggy-backed" onto a Sprint system, and will be going from Sprint to something else in October (they could've just said that in the would've created a lot less stress and a few less headaches....). Anyhoo, so before October, we need to decide what we are going to do. Obviously, the cellular plans are going to be different, so we're trying to figure out what option is best for us. HERE IS WHERE YOU COME INTO PLAY.

With all the friends/family/co-workers/enemies/frenemies/4th-cousin-twice-removed/pick your 5/pick your 10/etc. plans out there, we need to know what the best route is going to be for our buck. If we go with a cellular company that most of our aforementioned list is on, we can reduce our monthly minute plan, saving us money. So, if you don't mind, please take a minute (well, more like 3 seconds) to pick where you belong in my newly created poll, and that will help us decide what company to go with! Thanks a ton!!

We're with Verizon. Each seems to have an advantage and disadvantage. Good luck picking everything out. it's always a pain to switch service.
