Do any of you have straight talk? If so have you had problems with customer service? OMG i spent four hour on the phone with them yesterday trying to get my number changed from my old broken phone to my new one. They make you so mad you could just reach through the phone and choke the crap out of them. I love the phone and cheap plans, 45 a month unlimited, but geeezzzzzzzz!

I have straight talk and when i changed from verizon to straight-talk ...it took a week to get my phone activated because i wanted to keep my number. so it's best just to change your number if you don't have another phone line. I try not to call them unless i have to, i do it all online

What is 'straight talk'? Do you get good reception in Smith County? Is $45 for one phone, and do they offer family share plan?

Sorry for all the questions but I pay approx.$190 a month to verizon for my phone plus 3 others on family share.....I think that's just way too much. Plus I have to keep my land line because verizon service isn't strong enough at my house to use the cell for anything except texting....land line is another 40something each month. I'm goin broke!!, just so my kids can keep in touch with me and their friends.

I bought a network extender from verizon so I can use my cell at home. I have 5 phone 2 of which are blackberrys and my cell bill is just 220 a month!

Well dang....sounds like im getting screwed! One of my phones is a droid but the other 3 are just regular phones. So you pay 220 with 5 phones and that includes the extra 30 EACH for the blackberrys (if you have unlimited internet/email usage)?

This is messed up.....I even get a discount through my work on my personal plan! I need to have a 'sit down' or 'come to Jesus' talk with Verizon!

I will be at least asking about that network extender. I think it all depends on what kind of phone you have. My husband uses his cell at home all the time but I can't talk on mine.

straight talk is powered by tracfone but it runs off verizon cell towers. It works anywhere verizon works and is 45 dollars unlimited net, phone, and text. Great deal but the customer service sucks

I,ve had the same problems with Straight Talk customer service.But they have the best deal out there if your looking for prepaid.drug buster is exactly right.You get UNLIMITED talk time,text and internet for $45 plus tax.I havent found a better deal anywhere.Online is the way to go if you're having problems.If you do have to call them,plan to spend a few HOURS on the phone with a rep that can barely even speak English!

How would I go about getting my family share plan? Would I just have to have several different accounts and pay 45 a month for each....I wouldn't be saving any money, but I would have internet on each phone. That would be a plus!

Not really going to matter till my contracts run out.......thats the thing with verizon once they get you, your hooked for a while. Its hard to not sign up for a new contract every 2 years because your phone is so worn out by then that you need a new one and they cost entirely to much if you have to pay full price.

AND THEY KNOW YOU WANT (gotta have) ALL THOSE NEW GADGETS!!

No, I am not paying more just to have the verizon name......I signed up with verizon SEVERAL years ago when DTC was and may still be called Advantage cellular and wasn't worth a crap to have! Now it just seems like im kinda stuck with Verizon.

Are you paying roaming charges when you travel outside the DTC service area? If you are then maybe you need Verizon too. If you get very far from smith or dekalb(?) county you're not hittin on a DTC tower anymore!

No i dont have roaming charges. I have been all the to CA with it. Worked like a charm. I have carry over minutes on my plan too. Got about 2500 mins of them sitting there. I pay 7.50 for unlimited txt to anyone. I am thinking abt adding data, i checked and it is 24.99 unlimited..

Sounds good. Right now, as I stated, i'm stuck in a contract, but when it runs out I may check into DTC again.

Unlimited text to anyone with verizon is 9.99 a month (per phone) and I have 1400 minutes (talk)for family share plan. We don't ever go over 200 min. a month so I know im wasting my money but you can only go down to 700 min on the family share plan. I added the extra minutes when I added my stepson to our plan because I didn't know how much he might use the 'talk' portion. Apparently not much.
