To me, it seems as if most cell phone companies want to get their greedy little hands into everyone's pockets. They lure you in with awesome deals on the most recent phone with all the bells and whistles and music and cameras and web this and web that, only to stick you into a 2 year contract that ends up costing you much more than buying the phone out right would have. (hook, line and sinker)
With Straight Talk it's just the opposite. Straight Talk has zero activation, reactivation or termination fees. You know what else is missing? Contracts. NO Contract ~ amazing concept, right? And no credit checks. I've never really understood why cell phone companies need credit checks anyway.
The best part of Straight Talk is their monthly service is only $45 bucks a month! That's for unlimited service for calls, text, picture messaging and web. There is also an "All You Need Plan" that offers 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data. Impressed? Yeah, me too!
Straight Talk also offers International Long Distance on a pre-paid basis (call a friend), so if you have family out of the country, this really helps you keep in touch.
The phone selection from Straight Talk is not so shabby either. They have smart phones, touch screens, and app capable phones. Or, you can get a reconditioned phone starting at $10 that have Bluetooth capabilities, cameras, music players, etc. Straight Talk has everything you need!
So, I have two questions for you. First, what would you do with all the extra money you would save every month by using Straight Talk? Second, what are you waiting for?
