My Verizon contract has expired.  Any suggestions on to what service providers may have better price / service combinations.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A lot really depends on your service area.  In my service area Verizon has the best signal followed by AT&T then T-mobile and Sprint.  

T-Mobile and Sprint probably have the lowest prices but in turn if you are not in a good area of theirs then you get slow to or no data.

What type of phone are you looking for? Maybe its better to buy a phone outright then not be on a contract.  You could do the bring your own phone to something like Walmarts plans.

Really depends on what you do, how reliable you need it, what type of equipment you want.

Just because your contract is expired doesn't necessary mean you need to get a new phone & contract. Stay the course until something you really like comes your way.  I don't know if Verizon does it but if you have been there awhile they might give you a free month or such for staying on, Sprint did that for me once.

This site will show you who has the best signal in your area to help you decide.

if you were on a contract that got you a reduce phone price (New every two, etc) once you are past your contract date and do not need a new phone you can call Verizon and they should reduce your monthly bill be $15.
