Anybody have any good experiences or recommendations with cheap(er) cell phone providers? Currently with Verizon and looking at a more cost effective option for (2) lines. Maybe Consumer Cellular or MVNOs like Mint, Visible, etc.

I've has some luck with US Mobile in the past as well, but I think they're on T-Mobile/ATT-compatible networks(?). They have some multiline deals, as well as typical and then build-your-own sorts of plans.

I've heard pretty decent things about Mint.

Switch. Don't care for it, switch again. I've used several with no issue. Mint. Visible. Also a couple I'm forgetting. Currently I'm on Google Fi but probably moving my 3 lines to mint again soon.

Xfinity/Comcast, we pay $15/mo for two phones. That is sharing one gig. We don't live on our phones so we have never been over one gig. Unlimited data is $30/mo per phone I believe.

We've had cricket for years, and love it. Only real difference is you have to straight out buy your phone, but no issues with service. We have 4 unlimited lines with hotspot for $118 a month.

Not sure if it's considered budget but I saved a TON on my phone and Internet by switching to Spectrum mobile.

How's the service with Spectrum's mobile service and customer support? I've had no issues with them from a home internet perspective, but have seen some wide-ranging (mixed) reviews on the mobile service.

No issues with service. They use Verizon towers. Haven't had to use customer support yet.

you are pretty much on your own. although they have a random smattering of retail service stores.
