Straight Talk, the prepaid cell phone service owned by TracFone and sold by Walmart offers a new way to take advantage of their services: Bring Your Own Phone. Now, you can purchase a Straight Talk SIM card for $14.95 and use it on any compatible or unlocked GSM cell phone. GSM phones are those used by AT&T and T-Mobile. (Verizon Wireless and Sprint phones will not work with this program since they do not utilize SIM cards.)
The SIM card costs $14.99 and includes free shipping. Both regular and micro SIM cards are available. Your monthly cost is $45.00 for 30 days of unlimited talk, text, and data. This is the same price as an unlimited plan with a phone purchased from Straight Talk. Keep your phone and your phone number while saving money every month!
The Straight Talk SIM card will only work with an AT&T or T-Mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone. To activate your service, you will need a Straight Talk Unlimited 30-day Service Plan card or credit card. Some data services may not be available with all wireless devices. BlackBerrys and branded TracFone, SafeLink, NET10 or Straight Talk phones will not work with this program. In order for your phone’s data services to work, you must update your APN data settings, also called the Access Point Name. SIM card and Service Plan are not refundable.
If you have a phone you like, this is a great deal. Bring your own phone, get a SIM card for $14.99, and enjoy unlimited talk, text, and web from Straight Talk for only $45/month!

Are you tired of being nickeled-and-dimed by your cell phone provider? Seems like every time you turn around, they’re adding another fee, enacting new usage limits, or charging you for mandatory “packages” that you don’t want or need. Perhaps it’s time to check out Walmart’s Straight Talk.
Straight Talk is a prepaid wireless service provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc. You’ve probably seen their display at your local Walmart store. Straight Talk services are sold at Walmart and online at StraightTalk.com.
There are two tiers of service, both at very reasonable prices: $30 gets you 1,000 voice minutes, 1,000 texts, and 30MB of mobile web access over a 30 day period. For $45, you receive unlimited talk, text, and data, again over a 30 day period. Both of these plans are easy to understand and afford. You don’t need to purchase an extra data package or plan in order to use your Smart Phone on the Straight Talk service.
Straight Talk advertises “Nationwide Coverage on one of America’s Best Networks.” Officially, they won’t tell you which network they use. But if you look closely at the coverage map and the wording used in their promotional literature, it’s VERY similar to that used by one of the ‘Big 3’ national providers. You can draw your own conclusion here.
An unlimited plan with data with the major national carriers will run you about $90.00 per month + taxes. At $45.00, Straight Talk is half as much with no contract and no activation fees to boot. Walmart is currently running a package promotion where some phones are as low as $40.00 and include your first 30 days of unlimited talk, text, and mobile web service. At this price, it’s hard to turn down. Give Walmart’s Straight Talk a try and let us know what you think!
