I was wondering if anybody has the "straight talk" service that Walmart offers for 30 or 45 dollars. I am curious as to the coverage you get with it. I currently have AT&T and am about fed up with all the dropped calls and lack of coverage in places that I have always had service before. I would like to try it out, but wanted to see if anyone had any comments on it before I do. Thanks!

Straight Talk is the best cell service I've had by far! It's through Trac Phone, & uses whatever towers are around. Gets better service than the AT&T service that I had. For $45.00 a month, I get unlimited talk, unlimited texting, AND unlimited internet. The service area is great, too. I have service everyplace I had service with AT&T. I'd advise anybody to go to Straight Talk.

If you keep an eye on the website you can find great deals on refurbished phones. I got the one that looks like a black berry for $20 plus the $30 plan. The only thing is if you do not buy mins. before the end of the due date you will have to call them and set talking to some stupid person that can not talk english and make sure they don't give you a new number.
You can also transfer your at&t number over. Just tell them you wanna port and give them your cell number. When they ask for the account number give them the cell number again. Just make sure both times you add the 606.
As far as service, well I can get service in places other phones can't. It's well worth it. Just keep up on the due dates.

Can't beat it. Better than at&t. You get unlimited data, unlimited texts and unlimited calls for $45. Beats at&t's unlimited text and calls for $60 per month. Better service and you save $15 per month. Traveled out of state with it and had service everywhere. Highly recommend it.

The phones are either on the AT&T or verizon network it depends on the letter at the end of the style number the verizon ones actually work better but are well worth the money for sure

you can put another card on your reserve and when one runs out it will automatically refill it .

can you use your old at&t phones with straight talk service? Do the straight talk phones use sim cards?

The Straight Talk service uses either ATT or Verizon towers! Which tower network you use depends on the last letter in the model number of the phone you choose. If the phone has a C as the last letter then it is CDMA and runs on the Verizon tower network. If the phone has a G as the last letter then it is GSM and runs on the ATT tower network.

Thanks for all the input! I guess if you have problems with AT&T now then you don't need to get one of the phones that use their towers!

Straight Talk is by far the best one,,I have had AT&T and Verizon,,I am a truck driver and the service in all the states are good. If you get the Nokia E71 you have to get the $45 umlimited plan and there is a APP. you can get that makes your phone a WI FI hot spot and you can connect and use your laptop to get on the net which I am doing right now...Straight Talk is the best out there them other phone companies are ripping everyone off..I recommend everyone to switch...

I love mine. I have the $45.00 auto withdrawal from my bank account every month. Very convenient.

ive had good luck with mine also.If you have the extra money you can get a good discount buying several months at a time.You end up getting a couple of months free if I remember right.But your minutes dont roll over so if you dont use it much 30.00 cards better.You still get text and internet just not unlimited.I agree though the operators dont speak english very well.
