Straight Talk is a service provided by TracFone Wireless Inc., and is sold in Walmart’s across the country and is available online also. Tracfone is America’s largest no-contract cell phone provider in the U.S. Straight Talk offers three monthly plans that range from $30 – $60 and also a 3 month, 6 month, and yearly plan. Straight Talk offers Unlimited talk on all plans except the “All You Need” plan where you get 1,000 minutes. Mobile Data is also unlimited all all plans except the “All You Need Plan” where you are given 30MB of data.
Cell Tower Used: Straight Talk used to offer AT&T and T-Mobile networks, but have recently dropped the AT&T network and now the only available option is T-Mobile. If you are currently using Straight Talk with At&T you can keep using the services, but all AT&T Sim cards disappeared from the Straight Talk store. However, S.T. AT&T Sim cards are still available to purchase on Ebay when they are selling for around $50-80 each.
Data Throttled: Even though you get “Unlimited” mobile data your speeds get throttled down when you reach the 2 GB limit. Straight Talk will even send out letters to members who is using too much data and threaten to shut down their service if the high data limits continues.
Customer Service: This seems to be a trend for pre-paid carriers. Straight Talks customer service can use improvement. According to the customer service Score Board they are not doing too well with their customers. Straight Talk Customer Service Reviews
