Actually straight talk phones are powered by Verizon Wireless. I got the slider phone. Also, ive had it all over the county, i got great signal. Anyways, i think its the best deal ever, why get a contract phone when you can get one of these. the 45.00 card gives you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and unlimited internet usage. hope this helps

Actually they are bx Tracfone. Tracfone utilizes verizons network.If you like verizon this should be a great deal in my opinion.

I have the lg, cheapest version they offer and it will pick up just about anywhere in the county. You can also update your phone by dialing *228. the phones are by tracfone but that is it. everything else is ran on the verizon network. Hard to beat$45.00 a month unlimited When I was paying $79.00 a month thru verizon for 450 minutes.

i have the rival by verizon. its a pretty good phone, having trouble with it shutting off. but in my opinion i like verizon and everyone tht i know has verizon, and they seem to like it. if your gonna be using ur phone alot, i would recommend a contract. if its seldom then i would go with prepaid. but regardless ur still havin to pay by the day tht you have the phone if you use it or not.

Do any of yall have an enV touch? The flash on my camera doesn't work right, it is TOO bright. I've only talked to one other person who has one, and she has the SAME problem. Just wondering if anyone else has this problem also?

I got the straight talk phone about 2 weeks ago and I love it. I got the one with the full qwerty keyboard and its great plus the $45 a month for unlimited EVERYTHING is awesome. I live in pioneer and it gets great signal and even gets signal going thru most of paint rock. I had us cellular before and i loved them but even they cant change my mind bc this is the best deal around. They will end up running every other prepaid phone out of the county.

I'm on US cellular pre paid. I pay 71 dollars a month for unlimited talking and texting, but I also get free incoming on everything and I get fine service when I'm in Knoxville. Not so much in Kentucky though, but that's fine because I don't really go there often. But yeah, I think the 71 bucks a month is worth it since I get free incoming calls and texts.

well if this is so then you need to call them and have them reauthorize your phone. Its not that they cut you off something could have went wrong in the system or she only got the $30 a month plan one. I have made hundreds of call off of mine i have talked for 15 hours on my phone already and i have only had it for about 3 weeks now so. It really is unlimited.
Just Wondering

Do you have to use a Credit Card to activate it or it is every month you have to buy a Card from Wal~Mart?
