None.

but Verizon seems to be the only Cell Tower Owner that covers most but not the whole County..

Lots of coverage holes with other companies... according to friends...

I have a Moto Z2 Play, my first smartphone. It's ok, just awfully big. It doesn't fit in my pocket as nicely as my old flip phone.

And just for the record, I like beer, too.

Cheap AT&T brand prepaid phone. I think it is Samsung Galaxy Express. Paid less than $50. The cheap prepaids are typically about 2 generations behind so it's like a Galaxy S4 (S6 was new at the time I bought this.)

Kids on the other hand, both with iPhones. This is why I'm divorced. It was more important for her to buy the kids a $700 and $900 phone than it was to pay the mortgage or electric.

Currently using a Motorola MOTO X Pure Edition. Wanted something with a bigger screen and decent camera:

Replaced my Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. Tiny screen and camera broke after 3 years. But it took very nice pics/vids I thought:

Hand-me-down 64GB iPhone 6+ I got for free from my step-daughter. I got it unlocked at the Apple store and use an AT&T Go Phone pre-pay sim card in it.

iPhone 5 and as on Tuesday night I'm forced to surf Bike Forums on it ☹️. A November lightning storm fried my desktop, router and all cable modems. Got a new PC yesterday but cable provider can't get here till Monday. I hate using cell phone internet !!! When did I get so far behind technology.

iPhone 6S, 64 gig. This is a new unit from Apple, the old one was 23 mos. into it's 2 year Applecare warranty and the battery was going bad. I kind of got testy with them at the store when they claimed it passed the battery test. I had showed the percentage (75%) when I walked in, it was down to 50% about an hour later and the rep. had to admit that wasn't normal, so new phone time.

I'll keep this a while, it's almost paid for with Verizon.

It's a good phone as well, trading up means a new case, a $30 one-time payment to VZW for the "privilege" of getting a new device (schmucks), etc...

Galaxy Tab, which is cheap and does all I want from a phone. The camera is surprisingly good considering.

I have a Moto E4+. I like the size for regular stuff. It's not for riding with.

Consider this, on a ride I'd only ever use a phone to a) text and say I'm late, b) call and ask for a ride due to mechanical failure, or c) call 911.

I don't need a smart phone for any of this. Mine weighs 180g without the case and takes up valuable pocket room. How much money have some of us spent to drop that much weight? The smallest prepaid phone you can get is a much better choice for anything but touring.
