Want unlimited data/calls/texts/411 on a cell phone? but at a reasonable price!!
Straight Talk is a pre-paid cell phone service that offers unlimited calling, texting and data usage for $45 a month and allows users to bring their own phone.
This means that the Nokia Lumia 900, iPhone 4S and many Android phones work with Straight Talk Wireless.
AT&T compatible phones deliver amazing speeds on the Straight Talk network, in the “4G” range that many iPhone and Lumia users would achieve on AT&T’s network.
Straight Talk Wireless offers an unlimited plan with unlimited calling, texting and data for $45 a month without any contracts.
There are no set limits to usage, but Straight Talk can suspend service for “abnormally high” calling, texting or data use.
Unlimited plans on competing nationwide carriers are much more expensive and come with a two-year contract.
- Sprint – $109.99
- Verizon – $119.98 (4GB Data)
- AT&T – $119.98 (3GB Data)
Straight Talk plans also come with subsidized phones, which is another price factor to consider.
I’ve used the Straight Talk LG Optimus Q for about 6 months now, and it has been relatively hassle free. It isn’t as “slick” as my old iphone, but I still watch netflix/youtube/.etc.. as much as I want. No more data caps.. or Att throttling grandfathered unlimited plans.. It is just like any other smartphone, check your email, browse the web, use your favorite apps, watch videos, or listen to music. If you are looking for a contract free, cheap alternative to the mainstream/big 3 cellphone companies.. then you won’t be disappointed.
On a side note, if you buy the Optimus Q, make sure to download the Juice Defender(battery saver) app. 😉
