So my postpaid Verizon cycle ends tonight, and I am bored because there are no good promos going right now. Considering canceling Vzn postpaid tonight.

How good or bad is the customer service for Total Wireless? I'm usually pretty self sufficient with phones. But I thought I read that TW had abysmal CS.

Switch to Verizon prepaid, they're increasing data allotments on their prepaid arm.

Total Wireless is a Trashfone brand, which means their system is a crapshoot and their customer service is useless.

In fact, I think their CS reps enjoy deliberately screwing over customers.

I've been with Total Wireless for a few months now, their customer service has been pretty good for me. They resolved all problems with porting within a day and billing within two days. I only had to talk to them in the first few weeks, and now auto refill kicks in monthly and there are no problems with service, so no need for CS. All in all the best deal on Verizon's Network especially for 4 lines

Thanks to you both for replying. I was trying to see about Verizon prepaid as well this morning. My new office is in a building that was previously a medical clinic. And Cricket isn't holding up too far into the building. So either getting signal booster or plan on Verizon in some form. I do travel so some Vzn coverage would be good, especially for scenic routes. I don't generally need technical support but account stuff can happen. Cricket had been getting worse in that dept over the last year for me.

I thought Total Wireless was a Walmart exclusive, how is it that Best Buy and target are selling their sims?

BTW, I just activated a Total Wireless $35 plan with a tracfone $1.00 sim yesterday, which worked fine online. This is the first time I have tried Total. The best thing about Total wireless is that is seems that they are no longer subject to/enforcing the standard Verizon MVNO data speed caps of 5mbps up and 2mbps down. I was in the Hyde park area of Tampa today and had speedtest that was 75.86 down and 44.74 up, I sh*t you not! Something is definitely going on with Total wireless here, I am really suprised that there is not much talk about these crazy data speeds, just a short thread on HowardForums is all I can find!

Isn't there line access fees for each device you have on Verizon? Otherwise I'd be in.

No BS "line access" fees on prepaid.

Awesome. I must be on a postpaid page or something because it keeps quoting me for a line access fee.

Also, is there a cheaper option for the sim card rather than spending $50 on the Verizon website? Thanks!

Really the best bang for your buck would be with Boost Mobile. $30/month if you set up autopay, otherwise $35. Look at their website!

Thanks. I got two of the cheap total wireless sims for future tests. And have. Been eye balling the boost offerings. Have an Xfinity phone arriving today. Trying to figure out how to get coverage in new studio located in what was previously a medical building. Sprint has low frequencies if I remember. I used to have a flashed Boost mifi that circumvented building material interference.

Isn't Boost mobile a Sprint MVNO? Yuck. Moving from postpaid Verizon to something running on the Sprint network could come with some surprises. You would be moving from the best network to the worst, coverage wise.
