3 year old phone starting to go on the fritz, so I'm thinking of switching providers when it gets replaced. Minimum plan that works for me with my current provider is about $60/mo. Thinking of Metro or Boost but I'd rather not shell out the extra upfront cost on the new phone only to find out I want to switch back to my contract where the phone would have been free w/ new 2 year.
Rumors are all old stories about a friend of a friend of a friend... Seeking any current FIRST HAND experiences with Metro and Boost. How is the coverage these days? Any troubles making calls at peak hours? How's the web speed if I need to google something or check email? I'm mostly around the city and peninsula, but coverage experiences outside the area would be good to know too.
