Straight talk: Prepaid never looked so good!
Are you tired of high priced contract cell phone plans?
With the economy in decline and most people looking to save a few dollars here and a few pennies there, one very viable option is getting rid of your current contract cellular service.
Straight talk service, available at Wal-Mart and the Straight talk website, is a cost effective way to get quality prepaid cell phone service on one of America’s best networks.
Straight talk service is provided by Tracfone wireless, but unlike Tracfone where you pay by the minute, Straight talk gives you two options for one month (30 days) of service.
What are the service options available at Straight talk?
The first option is the $30 “all you need” plan. With this option Straight talk provides you with:
1. 30 service days
2. 1000 nation wide talk time minutes
3. 1000 nation wide text messages
4. 30 mb of mobile web access
5. No extra charge for calls to 411 (local directory assistance)
The second option is $45 unlimited plan that provides you with:
1. 30 service days
2. Unlimited nation wide calls
3. Unlimited nation wide text messages
4. Unlimited mobile web access
5. Unlimited calls to 411 (local directory assistance)
The best part of both of these plans is that they do not require a contract service plan. No longer will you have to worry about huge early contract termination fees. Another great thing about Straight talk is the lack of hidden fees. The prices you see are the prices you pay (excluding local and sales tax)
Witch plan is right for me?
The $30 “all you need” plan is suited to those on a strict budget that don’t plan on using their phone very often. While the amount of minutes and text messages are more than adequate for minimal needs, someone who uses the phone for business or to keep in constant contact with friends and family the other plan is a better option.
The $45 “unlimited” plan is exactly that: Unlimited. This plan is great for people who use their phone a lot. This plan is a good all around value and is suited for everyone from talkative teenagers to the busiest business man.
What other plan options are available?
In addition to the above plans, Straight talk also offers the option to buy your service in 3 month, 6 month and 1 year plans. While you will not save money buying these plans, they do make it hassle free to have service for extended periods.
How do I refill my account?
There are two options when refilling your account. First you can head on down to your local Wal-mart, who as of this time is the only carrier of Straight talk phones and service cards, and pick up either service card. Follow the directions on the back of the card and you’re done.
The second option is to go to the straight talk website, and refill your account with your credit card. You can also sign up for the automatic refill option, which will charge your credit card every month to automatically refill your account.
