  8. If you’re looking for a new cell phone plan then I suggest you to take a look at Straight Talk. It’s amazing. I have the unlimited plan for $45 a month. It includes unlimited calls, unlimited texts, and unlimited internet. The service is awesome because it is carried on the Verizon Network.

  9. I was so tired of paying overages on my cell phone bills with terrible service and upgrades that never came to be. I did my research and I found out that one company has it all – Straight Talk. I never considered Walmart the place for cell phones, but Straight Talk converted me. For $45 a month, I have an amazing unlimited plan (texts, calls, and surfing) without the worry of a contract later on or overage fees. The selection of phones was even better since Straight Talk has a Smart Phone nearly on the I-Phone level without the price and everyone is so impressed when they see it. I didn’t have to worry about a credit check or remembering to pay since I recharge service at the beginning of the month and I don’t worry about it again.

    The cancellation fees from my previous carrier were so worth it as Straight Talk is saving me over $50 a month – that’s $1,200 over the two years I would have had the contract. Best of all, I was able to keep my old number and still use Straight Talk’s Verizon network – the coverage is eveywhere and awesome.

    I suggest everyone give this amazing plan a look up.

  10. I have Straight Talk on the Verizon network. Bought it at Walmart and it’s an amazing deal. The Samsung Finesse is a very cool smartphone and paying only $45 a month for unlimited everything is the best deal going!

    Who needs an iPhone? LOL!!
