Hey guys, just curious if AT&T had good coverage as an OTR guy here. Just got a new iPhone and it seems decent, but I'm wondering if I should just return it, pay an extra 10$ a month and get the same plan but with Verizon instead?

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

I would rather pay the extra and go with Verizon because their coverage (voice and 4g LTE) is amazing.

Just a note: if you are going to be running close to Canadian or Mexican borders BE SURE to switch your voice and data roaming OFF!! Otherwise you could be using international towers without even knowing it and get charged crazy rates per minute/kilobyte. (I used to work for Sprint and saw this happen frequently). With an iPhone you can turn this off by going to setting then cellular then roaming and switch off voice and data roaming.

I have been using Straight Talk,a pre-paid plan available at Walmart. Im currently on AT&T towers. They have a Bring your own Phone plan for $45.00 per month. Unlimited talk, text and 5 Gigs of data. You can use a Verizon phone and stay on Verizon towers. Cheaper than Verizon company plans.

I also use straight talk. On the Verizon network for only 50.00 (45.00+fees) 49.10 a month to be exact, and a lot cheaper than a Verizon phone plan.

I also use Straight Talk on the Verizon network for $45. They also have a $55 plan that offers unlimited talk, text, and 10GB of data.
