Choosing a cell phone carrier can be a daunting task. You have to think about who has the best coverage, who has the best price, how much data should I get and so many other questions. It can be enough to make you want to give up before you even start!
My personal opinion is stick with the major carriers that own the network and towers like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint (Sprint will soon be part of T-Mobile). In my experience, these carriers offer better customer service in store or by phone than smaller, cheaper options. If you choose an online only carrier, the price might be right but when a problem pops up, there is no physical location to go to. Having a phone that is out of service means game over for rideshare drivers.
When it comes to data, GPS apps and the Uber and Lyft apps don’t really eat up that much data. Your biggest consumer of data comes from watching videos and playing games. You can check your current usage by going into your phone’s settings. Ridester has an excellent article that lays out everything you need to know to make the right choice. It explains the difference between types of carriers, what unlimited really means, and so much more.
