In order to find the best cell phone plan you have to decide what your goals are. Do you want the best reception regardless of cost with the most technologically advanced handsets then you should go with Verizon.
If you are looking for an unlimited cell phone plan you can go with T Mobile or Metro PCS. T Mobile offers the My Faves plan in which you can select up to five people that you normally call to have unlimited talk time with.
The numbers can be any domestic number including toll free numbers as well. Anything outside of those five numbers you will be charged. The nice thing is that you can change the number monthly if you want to drop or add a number.
The only downside with T Mobile is that many people complain about dropped calls and poor reception.
If you go to a T Mobile store, they can do a reception check if you provide them with an address. Then you will be able to see on the computer what the actual strength of the signal is.
