Wednesday Poll: Month-to-Month or Contract?

Last year around this time, we asked all of you to weigh in on your current wireless situation. We kept it simple, only asking if you were in some sort of month-to-month type of plan or if you were locked into a contract. The vote showed that most of you (59%) had ditched long-term contracts in favor of a month-to-month plan, which is something you should be proud of.

This year, we want to ask again to see how things have changed. This time, though, we’re tossing in an extra answer or at least breaking out the month-to-month option. You see, if you are in a month-to-month plan, but still have a device payment plan, you are still basically under contract, just without the nasty ETF fee typically associated with a contract. So in this poll, you can vote for a straight up contract, month-to-month without a payment plan, or month-to-month with a payment plan.

Ready? Go!

Are you on-contract with your wireless carrier or month-to-month?
