When youve paid off the phone, your monthly bill goes down accordingly. And there are no termination fees; if you want to leave the carrier, you just pay any remaining balance on the phone.Although our recent report, "Small carriers outrank the big ones in Consumer Reports' latest cell phone service survey," covering 63,352 subscribers in 26 metro areas, found some very happy customers who switched to smaller cell providers, there are still good reasons for staying big.Verizon, for example, earned decent marks across the board for voice, text, and data service, while AT&T was a standout for its 4G service. It recently slashed prices on its More Everything plans, added more data tiers to allow customers to better fine-tune plans, and monkeyed with the access fees it charges (for a limited time) to lower costs further.T-Mobile was tops for value and customer service. And Sprint, which didnt do particularly well in any category, has recently become very aggressive about pricingand some people actually do like the company. Unfortunately, these plans are rather complicated, and the carriers have done their best to make apples-to-apples comparisons difficult among one anothers offerings. For example, they charge different rates for additional phone lines, break data allowances into chunks that don't match the competitions, and provide differing discounts for multiple phones. In fact, plan pricing is so bizzare and counterintuitive that customers, particularly those with multiple phone lines, can often save money by buying more data for each phone. The good news: Weve already done the math for you in the tables below to help you find the best deal. And to make sure your needs are covered, weve presented the service-cost breakdowns for one to five family members for light, medium, and heavy data service. All you need to do is figure out how much data your family needs, which we also help you do in "How much service do you need?" 1GB 3GB 5GB 1GB 3GB 5GB 1GB 3GB 5GB 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 1GB 3GB 5GB T-MobileSprintAT&TVerizon Get the best cell phone plan for your familyand save up to $1,000 a yearWe compare cell phone plans from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon
