Check coverage maps to determine which carrier has the best 4G network.

The other thing you want to be sure of is that you can take your number with you. If you stay in the same area code, you should be able to switch carriers easily.

This will allow you to keep your number.

When you want to keep your number and changing carriers isn’t an option, there are several solutions to try. Figure out how to use your wi-fi for calling and texting. This is part of the phone’s operating system, so it should be pretty simple. You can also purchase a femtocell, which helps to boost the signal of your particular carrier.
