Verizon prepaid sounds like a good way to go if Visible is a bust (I’m a little skeptical to be honest). I didn’t commit to anything beyond the first month with Visible.
The only folks who have service at my hospital have Verizon, so I was restricted to their network when I was looking to switch.July 30, 2019 at 7:43 pm MST #235199drbiscoParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 23Joined: 04/27/2018
I just signed up for a verizon business account – unlimited data at $40/month/line. Just needed a tax ID number. The salesperson said sometimes accounts get rejected if hte business is too new, but didn’t have a problem.August 2, 2019 at 8:53 am MST #235818
Woah, interesting. We have a solo 401k with an EIN.August 2, 2019 at 1:35 pm MST #235854StarTrekDocParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 1966Joined: 01/15/2017
A lot of educational systems have discounts. Remember your school may allow you to keep your school email. I still have my Umich.edu after 20 years!
Tmobile offers institutional accounts: have been on Advantage Plan $100 x4 lines and $10 per line afterwards — 4GB per line per month. with option for $30/month unlimited.
Just back from overseas China and Taiwan trip too : 2G unlimited and no firewall issues. Workable for email and mapping purposes. We have 10 lines on this account for only $130/month. 🙂
Visible is not good!! I can’t get into it due to what a massive headache it has been, but I had to update here lest anyone consider switching to that company.
Will pony up for Verizon. I get a $150/mo pretax deduction through my corporation for internet/phone and my wife gets paid $50/mo for a phone from her employer, so that obviously covers the whole cost for a legit carrier. I can’t run the risk of not getting a call from the hospital when I’m on call (I’m in a critical, time-sensitive specialty) because I was being cheap.August 3, 2019 at 2:13 pm MST #236080
Just an update: I did what gas passer recommended and switched us to Verizon prepaid. VERY happy so far. 2 lines with more data than we’d ever need is $75/mo including taxes. I bought discounted prepaid cards which brought it down to $60/mo total. So far, service has been perfect. Have not had any issues at all. Thanks for the great recommendation.August 9, 2019 at 3:17 pm MST #237725billyParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 155Joined: 04/07/2016
is there any catch to switching to a verizon prepay plan over the contract? My wife and I own our phones outright, and this thread made me check the verizon website- It looks like I’ll save 50 dollars/month by going to prepay (via verizon). Is there any real difference if I switch? Do I have to worry if I am choosing the autopay option? Will my phone not work if I forget that my credit card expired or something?
