Straight talk isn't one of the best alternative phone companies, but the price isn't too bad. I mean less than $50 for data, text and call is a good deal! But, for customer service I don't like it. The employees don't know what their doing or saying. I've called them asking why my iPhone 6 wasn't receiving or sending out calls. And all I got was call at & t for help?! So I have to call another company because they didn't know how? *sigh* it's a hit and miss so if you run into this problem I wish you luck. Not happy with this company.
Straight talk is Walmarts version of Cricket. I have Cricket service, but straight talk runs off the same At&T towers that Cricket do. Its cheap, you can pay as you go, and less calls are dropped unlike sprint and T-mobile. All the people i know love their straight talk service, and love the variety of phones that they have. I do believe you could take your own phone and get service through straight talk with. I have to give this service 5 stars, because ive heard hardly anything bad from this brand.
I love straight talk. I am with them now. I would never go back to Verizon. You can't beat their unlimited talk, text and 5GB of high speed data for only forty-five dollars a month. Now you can get 10GB of high speed data for fifty-five dollars. The only con I would have to say is that they do not give you the updates like other companies do. So you will have the same operating system until you upgrade to another phone.
When it comes to cell phones and contracts, i run for the hills bc its just another way to bend u over and beat for money out of u...ive had straight talk for almost seven years now ive never had an issue...i love the fact that i pay under fifty for my monthly card and its unlimited...what else can u ask for! Great phone selection, great plans, great high speed internet.... I LOVE STRAIGHT TALK!!
Don't get me wrong, I think Straight Talk wireless is a good company. I think they're phones are good, the service is okay. I get reception in most places, but the coverage could be better. The customer service has always been a help to me when I need help. I've been a customer since 2013, but I may switch to another company. The coverage really needs improvement. That's the only con that I have.
When I switched to Straight Talk's service, it was great the first few years, it was actually unlimited. The prices are good and I love my phone, but I'm starting to see that the service sucks. It's irritating to pay $45 for a service card that is suppose to be UNLIMITED, but starts going slow within two weeks.
I have mixed feelings about straight talk. They have a lot more flexibility and the cost is fantastic! But every little thing is an additional fee and the customer service is far from helpful. I also tend to lose service much sooner in rural areas when I'm with my friends with other carriers.
I purchased a straight talk phone and plan for my daughter. Shes 11 and this is her first phone. I like the unlimited plan they have. Without it I'm sure she'd go over her limits. I do wish they had more phone options and better coverage. But for my daughter, the phone and plan is nice.
Possibly one of my best black Friday deals was getting a new phone plus minutes for under 100 and transferring my number over in less than 30 minutes! It was so fast. their customer service was so nice and helpful when I was setting it up. A+ work!
I find straight talk the way to go.. While a lot of people are paying 100$ phone bill i only pay 45$ for pretty much the same services. Only thing i wish was that they would upgrade your phone for free after so many years
Q & A
Is the unlimited data REALLY "unlimited"?
Has anyone used their bring your own phone program? If so, how is it and how does it work?
Can you make calls out of state ? And if do is it more?
Have you checked out Republic Wireless ?
Anyone else ever get the "Your allotted high speed data has been reached?" Super annoying.
