We have one phone on Verizon and one phone on ATT, both with unlimited hotspot. We have never been limited on data and we use quite a bit. We use Cricket($55) for our ATT and Visible($40)for our Verizon. ur primary is Cricket and we have used it throughout Canada and Alaska with no problems.


my BIL in MN who does a lot of travel out west recommended ATT. I called ATT and they wouldn't sell me service in my area code.

In the SouthWest and West where we live and travel, anytime we are even barely out of a town or city, we have no ATT signal at all. We have Verizon signal most areas, even when camping.

Do it online and pick a different area code.

It seems that Verizon has chosen to go for wider area coverage, while AT&T has opted to focus on population centers. For camping, and now that we live in the West, Verizon is the way to go. It doesn't cover every area, and even at home we have issues as the tower(s) are "over the hill" from our house, but they are still the best game in town for less populated parts of the country.
