Prepaid Cell Phones

So I have been thinking of switching to a prepaid option. I can have an awesome phone and save like $60 for the hubs and I every month. Currently for unlimited everything I pay $150 for two lines. Prepaid will be between $40 and $50 for the same plans. I am afraid to forgo service though. Do you or anyone you know have a prepaid phone? How is the coverage? Customer service? Phone quality? Internet quality? What do you think of the prepaid option overall?

I have the cheapest phone from trackphone. It's a shitty ass phone, slow ass internet works 1/2 the time. But I use it for texting and calling and havent had any problems with that. Never had to call customer service. I pay $45/mo

My parents and husband have straight talk through walmart. It's like 40/mo. For unlimited everything. Reception and signal are great. y dad went across the country and it was great. The internet is a bit slow though.

I've thought about this too, but I'm afraid of getting stuck with shitty service.
