Is this Verizon coverage better than ATT?
Hi, I got a Merit ZTE phone that works on ATT towers and I was wondering if this phone got better coverage than the one I got??? My zip code is 40403. I thought about upgrading to this phone but I don't know how Verizon coverage is in my area consider I always used ATT towers. Thanks :)

You need to check the coverage map, which is provided via a link at the Straight Talk web site.
I just looked at both the AT&T coverage map and the Verizon coverage map for Berea and both have excellent coverage. Not enough of a difference to make a big difference IMO.
"Coverage" mainly is important pertaining to where YOU will use the phone. You can check the Verizon coverage by going to their interactive coverage map and putting in the addresses where you use the phone or want to use the phone and you can hone in and see how good the approximate coverage may be.
If you plan to travel a lot, most people think that Verizon has better coverage especially out in the western part of the country. But again, some places AT&T will have coverage where Verizon will not and vise versa.
Here is the Verizon coverage map (copy-and-paste):
Look only at "Prepaid" for voice coverage and "Data Coverage" for 3G data. You will not be able to receive 4G LTE with Straight Talk phones on Verizon so disregard the 4G LTE coverage.
