I've been a customer of Verizon, Metro PC, Sprint and Virgin Mobil. All of these plans were based on minutes used. And all of them had a problem with dropped or missed calls. I've been a Surewest customer since they came to the Sacramento area and I am very pleased with their fiberoptic packages. So, when they added wireless, I decided to take a good look at what they offered. And was pleased to discover one of the best deals in wireless services I've found.
For $42.00 a month I get unlimited calling, lifetime free text messaging ( one of their frequent specials), and a good package of phone friendly services. I get call waiting, Caller ID, voice mail, speed dialing and call forwarding included. But the biggest bonus for me is that I never get dropped calls. The reception is crisp and clear throughout their main coverage areas which stretch from Modesto through Redding. There is no charge for areas secondary to their main venue, and the service is still stable and reliable. Bundled together with their other superb services (internet and phone), I have a highly affordable telecommunications package that dollar for dollar leaves the other company's in the dust. If you're lucky enough to live in the Sacramento Valley, give them a try.
