  1. I spend my money lots of different ways....i have two straight talk phones me n my feiance both have one and we love them....we spend our extra cash on groceries,car note,going out to a movie,or to pay a bill or two just many different ways....but we love our androids for straight talk.....

    1. Wish they would come out with some updated smart phones.

  2. I'm spending my extra money to buy the latest unlocked GSM smartphone coming out in October, so that I can use my straight talk sim and not be tied down by another contract with another phone company. Straight Talk is awesome!

  3. straighttalk sucks I had way better service with virgin mobile. I can't even speak to a live advisor after 9

  4. I would use the savings to get more Straight Talk phones so I can save even more money!

  5. Iuse the savings from one cell bill service to pay for a second service of StraightTalk!!

  6. These people have poor customer service and don't care about their customers. I accidentally bought the wrong refill card. They will not give a refund or credit my account. Low lifes

    1. i agree this company is bonk they don't honor the warranty especially for the broken charger ports so i just dropped 150 buck for a phone i only got a feww months use out of it I feel really ripped off and all customer service reps could do is keep repeating useless info to me

  7. Why cant Straight Talk reps ever answer a question straightly . All I want to know is Im using a Galaxy Nexus on Tmobile currently; its unlocked and works on their HSPA+21 network. All I want to know is will it get those speeds on Straight Talk. Dont give me BS about towers; Im telling you I get coverage on TMO - so w hat does that have to do with tower? Then I ask you what data do I get for $45 and you always ignore that. Ive read unlimited - Ive read throttled after 2gb - Ive read you only get 250 mb. THESE ARE BASIC QUESTIONS - WHY CANT THESE PEOPLE JUST RESPOND. With service this bad BEFORE joining, Id hate to see what happens after if I ever had a question. And that Android Map looks pretty empty; its definitely not the Tmobile map so that makes me wonder. Is Straight Talk only using some of Tmo towers so that the coverage is even worse and slower

  8. I was a loyal customer to straight talk for 3 years,every month i purchased a 45$ unlimited plan as well as both of my parents.I was always pretty pleased with my phone&service,however through no fault of my own my phone stopped letting my view texts and use the internet(services i pay for),it was literally 2 days after the 1 year warranty and straight talked told me that beacuse it was a "cosmetic" issue that they would not replace the phone,but would credit me 10 days of service so i could purchase a new phone.Well i do most of my buisness through text messages and also have more then one group project for college that is essential to be able to text as one of the people in my group is deaf.Furthermore i can not afford to purchase a new phone at this time.I am very disappointed in straight talk and do not find their "solution" acceptable!

  9. I bought a straight talk phone 3 months ago. i have emailed and called cust support more times then i can count trying to get a user name and password to log on their site to enable my pbone to download apps. They tell me it will be emailed to me.i still have not got an email with this info. I ask tec person last time i talked to them to just tell me the user name and pass on the phone. They couldnt do that. The site says click here to make user name and password. Then page comes up saying that page dont work. So after 3 months of this bullshit im going to virgin mobile my advice to all is stay away from syraight talk! This is the very worst service i have ever ever delt with. My review as a straight talk costomer is
    Straight talk sucks and i will never use them again. And will tell everyone i know about this also post on facebook and will bend over backwards to let people know how bad st talk service sucks. Vrey very unhappy costomer!



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.”
