Verizon Unlocked vs Sim Free Unlocked
I am looking at possibly switching carriers from Straight Talk (Verizon) to Verizon prepaid.
I see that Verizon currently is offering $100 off select smart phones (including the iPhone) if you port a number to them and choose a prepaid plan.
We will actually be buying 2 iPhones, so our savings would be $200.00.
My question is if there's ANY benefit to forgoing the discount and buying the Sim Free Unlocked iPhone directly from Apple.
$200 isn't much of a savings, so I could definitely forgo it if there's a benefit with having the sim free version.
As a side question, I'm curious if there are others who have switched from Straight Talk (Verizon) to Verizon prepaid, and if they noticed any improvement in coverage.
