  1. This is a great phone! I have it thru AT&T go phone service! It's a great smartphone- has the bomb features!! Mines is slowly dying- so I will be switching over to Straight Talk soon...just so I can have this phone and save $30 bucks on my bill!!

  2. I am surprised to see Straight Talk getting Nokia smartphones, since I thought that Straight Talk was CDMA only, but I guess they will have a GSM component, and it looks like it will run on AT&T's network judging by the 3G bands on the Nokia 6790 (Surge) and the Nokia E71. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, though... I have owned three Nokia smartphones in my time (Nokia 9300, Nokia N75, and most recently the Nokia E75), and all have been exceptionally great. I still have the oldest two as my backups (they still work great, even after 5+ years for the 9300), and I currently use the E75. I am looking forward to the release of these phones on Straight Talk, and it is just one more detail that will have me leaning toward switching to Straight Talk. My parents talked about switching months ago, but I refused because I couldn't have my Nokia, but now that seems to not be a problem anymore...

  3. Hi Patrick. We've actually had GSM phones for a while now. You can see those available in your area here:

  4. Are the new smartphones as good and as fast as the others from say at&t, verizon and sprint. I have a blackberry from boostmobile and it does a lot. I want to know if this phone is as good because if so I will be swtitching.

  5. Hi jmalos777. Yes! It's a great phone and the reviews for it have been unanimously positive.

  6. Is there any truth to the rumor that ST will be releasing a full touch screen smartphone in the not too distant future?

  7. Have not heard that rumor, James, but if/when there are new phones, we will announce here. Thanks.

  8. Other than the display for e-mail being small I like it better than my blackberry.

  9. Both of these new smart phones are GSM? Any idea if there are plans for a couple CDMA smart phones? GSM coverage in my area stinks. I just bought the cheap $30.00 GSM Samsung and it's coverage is lousy, whereas the slider I had previously worked great, it was CDMA.

  10. If/when we have new phones to announce, we'll do so here, Supertrucker. Thanks.

  11. I need a cdma smartphone that has a qwerty like the env touch or env 3 can't seem to deal with the other qwerty with the numbers mixed in with the letters like a blackberry. Any ideal when new styles are coming? Also, I have the Samsung 451. I have turned the volume all the way up but can't seem to get the same level of loud that I got on my touch and env3. Not only am I hard of hearing I work construction so I am around loud heavy equipment and can barely hear sometimes.

  12. Hi Cathy: Thanks for posting. If/when there are new phones, we will announce here.


Surpassing Verizon, TracFone notches 1.1M net adds in Q4

By Mike Dano

Feb. 9 2011 - 6:03 pm - América Móvil's TracFone MVNO service netted a whopping 1.1 million new subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2010, finishing the period with a total of 17.7 million subscribers.

TracFone's net adds put it in the same league as some of the nation's Tier 1 wireless carriers. For example, Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ [1]), the nation's largest wireless carrier, recorded 955,000 total net customer additions in the fourth quarter, ending the period with 102.2 million "total wireless connections."

Such a comparison isn't completely fair, however. TracFone doesn't operate its own wireless network--instead, as an MVNO, the company essentially piggybacks on the networks of Verizon , AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T [2]) and T-Mobile USA, reselling their services under TracFone's brands, which include Straight Talk, Net10 and others. Thus, TracFone's net customer additions are also counted by its host carriers under their "wholesale" column.

Nonetheless, TracFone's stellar growth is notable. The company has grown its U.S. subscriber base from 14.4 million in December of 2009 to 16.7 million in September 2010 to 17.7 million at the end of the fourth quarter of last year.

As for TracFone's subscriber metrics, the company's minutes of use skyrocketed 219 percent year over year, from 94 in the fourth quarter of 2009 to 300 in the fourth quarter of 2010. TracFone attributed the growth to its Straight Talk unlimited service. TracFone's average revenue per user grew from $10 to $14 during the same period while its churn remained relatively unchanged at around 4 percent.

Great Coverage!

Straight Talk uses one of America's best networks, so you're assured of great coverage, fewer dropped calls and clear connections.

Whether you talk, text or send and receive data, Straight Talk's got you covered.

CTIA-The Wireless Association's statement on usage and cost for mobile phone calls

WASHINGTON, DC CTIA-The Wireless Association® issued the following statement today in response to the OECD Communications Outlook report on usage and cost for mobile phone calls:

The headline from the recently released OECD Communications Outlook report reads that Finland, the Netherlands, and Sweden have the lowest prices for mobile phone calls among OECD countries, while the highest prices were found in Canada, Spain, and the United States. But since U.S. consumers enjoy the lowest per minute rates of all of the OECD countries, what today’s OECD report really shows is that some international comparisons just don’t make sense – especially when built on flawed assumptions.

The real story is buried on page 275 of the OECD report which states:

“It is important to note again that the OECD calling pattern in the basket can be significantly different than common calling profiles in a specific country. For example, the high-usage OECD basket includes 1,680 outgoing voice calls per year while users in the United States average 9,600 minutes of voice calls (combined incoming and outgoing) per year. In this case the basket provides the cost of buying exactly the calls and messages in the OECD basket rather than what may be considered a ‘typical’ bundle in the market.”
