It's no hassle, quality is great, variety is insane, and the app on Android and Windows is fantastic. $10 a month tho.
I usually swap phone after phone until I find something I like, then I'm good for a year, maybe more. The Note 2 carried me for a year and a half, but after seeing a friend's S4, I started wanting as the display really improves the clarity w/ regard to text. But I waited for the S5 and M8 to come out and put them against a 5S as well. They all have their merits and I enjoyed them all...and hated them all, hah! M8 had the audio, but a weak camera. 5S proved annoying and frustrating as it wouldn't tolerate my purchased Amazon MP3's unless I deleted the comment tag in Foobar. So off I went for an S5. I missed the polish of the 5S and the build quality/audio perks of the M8, but that display!
I started streaming video...a LOT of video. This did not bode well on Verizon and before I knew it, I had to change my plan to the 50GB option just to make sure.
I guess the S5 finally had a screen that was worthy of watching tiny videos on the go...and I knew I was going to abuse this, haha!
So after riding big red for a decade, I am now on Tmo. The coverage can be a touch spotty @ times, but the network doesn't crawl along like VZW's here in the Tempe/SoMo, AZ area. In fact, Tmo's quite a bit snappier overall. Apparently this is due to the amount of subscribers on Verizon out here.
Anyway, I just wanted to try out 8.1 and figured the 520 lumia wasn't too bad. Looking back, the 520 was the better phone by far. I'm sure I'll try Windows phone again, but it will need to have some of the apps I use on a daily basis as well as more fit and finish along w/ features like the Android/iOS versions.
