I declare this post in the name of Verizon's affliate in my home town Lyrix Wireless check them out at www.lyrixwireless.com Verizon has expanded there roaming agreement on new plans. They have also have roaming agreement with US Cellular too. They still offer unlitmed minutes plan and SMS in my home town website does not say it, but they do. I don't think you will ever see that from Verizon. Other than that I don't know what else I can say that is good about them. hows that for an other wireless carrier??
