The upgrade plan doesn't make sense to me. It is very unlikely
that I would replace a phone every two years. But I am still
thinking while I continue to wait for new phones. Does anyone
actually make use of VOLTE? With Metro, the audio sounds like a
landline, even though I enabled LTE for voice and data. Almost
anyone I call has that type of audio quality. If postpaid plans
offer this, even if I don't use unlimited data, that would be a
good reason to switch. Metro claims that they offer VOLTE though.

would say it probably is. I got the Apple upgrade plan, but
that only works with the major four’s postpaid services, at
least when you initially buy it. They are unlocked, so you
can switch or use any sim you want after you have it though.
Through experimenting with a couple different prepaid
options out there, I found that Sprint really has the
fastest speeds here, but it isn’t great in the rural areas.
I don’t know that any of them are, but when I heard it was
last call for the Sprint Kickstart plan, I jumped back on,
as I know that at least in the recent past, T-Mobile’s
strong suit in coverage isn’t near me. I’ve heard
eventually, the coverage they have and what Sprint had will
be the same, but I think they’re still mostly operating
Another question I have is with replacing my outdated Iphone
6. I waited for the 5g capable 12 pro, which was supposed to
have a much better processor. But that has turned out to be a
mistake, with reports showing that the new a14 is marginally
faster than the 13. When replacing my phone, I want to order
directly through apple, and pay the phone directly. I need an
unlocked phone, as I travel internationally, and need to be
able to use local sim cards. Is purchasing from apple, as
opposed to the carrier a good stratigy?

So they actually require a contract for those prices if I
remember, so you pay a year in advance. Also, that 15 dollar
plan is a 3gb plan.

I think Mint Mobile has one of the
better prepaid plans. It is $30 a month for unlimited
everything. They also have a $15 a month plan that gives
you, I think, 12 gigs of data a month.
am honestly debating with myself whether to go
MVNO/prepaid or postpaid regular plan. I am on
metro for my current IPhone 6, but since
literally no network officially supports this
device, I am thinking of switching to a better
plan when I get a new IPhone when they come
out. I am leaning more towards postpaid though,
after some thought, especially since I would be
able to benefit from employee discounts, that
likely would shave off between 10-15 at least on
the monthly bill. And I am not 55 or older.

My second, and it's related to the
first, is are you 55 years old or more?
T-Mobile has an incredible plan
for those age 55 and over and since they don't
require a contract . . .
