  1. I have been a loyal straight talk customer for 3 years and i use to think it was the best service for the money the samsung slide phone gave me service every where i went but now that i upgraded to the lg optimus android phone i have the worst service ive ever had in a cell phone . I travel around with my job and have went up to 60 miles with no service at all and what good is a phone that can do cool stuff but you cant call no one . I tride to return it to walmart but since i had the phone past 15 days they wudnt even give me store credit and let me try another phone. I had no idea this phone service wud suck so bad and with the way i travel i cant afford to be without a phone and it takes more than 15 days to figure out that the service is poor in the areas that i work. If the people at straght talk dont resolve my problem they will definetly loose my business all together . I use to recomend this service to everyone but now i wudnt recomend this service to my worst enemy .

  2. This is the WORST phone i have EVER owned! I have gone through 9 of them due to malfunctions. They will NOT REPLACE an andriod phone for ANOTHER andriod. But they will trade it for a generic basic phone VAULED at HALF the price. Everyone of these phones i RECIEVED..will freeze, go blank, you have to take the battery out to turn it on, the battery over heats, it sometimes wont charge, WIFI barely works, GPS..good luck using it, it wont let u download some of the andriod apps (it will state your phone is not compatible, you dont always get texts calls or voice-mails..but they may show up at a later date. There are still a ton of issues I did not touch on. This phone has been a nightmare. There are NO settings to let u save to ur SD card, which makes ur internal phone memory extremely low only when u have a few apps (when u have free space on the phone, it will still say ur memory is full)When i have called I have had a list with over 11 things wrong with all the phone. They will not work with u to keep u satisfied...A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. i DO NOT recommend starighttalk to anyone. I have had issues with other staright talk phones as well.


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.

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.”
