    Been with Sprint since 1993, and obviously don't like change. But, I'm seriously considering moving to Verizon with our 4 lines.

    Some reasons for the switch...
    - We've had to use an Airave for several years now as the signal near home is terrible. We're getting it free, but lately it needs rebooting on a regular basis (already replaced one unit).
    - If we roam domestically, we're limited to 300MB per line of data per billing period, which gets used quickly if you aren't careful and have no Wifi available. I don't think that is an issue with Verizon from what they tell me...
    - Can't use Voice and Data at the same time since the S5, I think. I use my phone (currently the S7) for work, and having that ability again would be a plus.

    Some reasons to stay put...
    - My S7 is leased, and I've got 18 payments to go. I really thought I put the phone on the installment plan originally. And another 2 of the 4 lines have termination fees. All but about $250 of the Sprint charges would be covered by Verizon's payments.
    - We're on an unlimited data plan. Although the heavy users haven't yet exceeded 6GB in a billing period, YET.
    - If we switch, I'd have to replace my S7 and one of the iPhones, always a hassle.

    What to do??

    I have been with Verizon for 16 years excluding one year with Cingular (ATT) Customer service has always been top notch and IMHO their coverage works for me 98% of the places I have traveled in the US. However, I don't like dealing with their pushy salesman in the stores. I always order online or over the phone.

    I have been with Verizon for the last 10 years, leaving once to give Project Fi a try. I was quickly back with Big Red. You pay more, but in my area (NJ), there is nothing that comes close as far as coverage goes.

    Thanks for the replies. Can anyone verify that Verizon allows voice and data simultaneously with their phones?
