Default New phone and Pre paid.

So I need a new phone, my boost mobel can't keep signal worth crap. I was thinking of getting a new straight talk from Walmart. I don't need a contract, and this is perfect for me. I pay 45.00 every month on the day I buy the card. This is the phone that I want. I was just wondering if anyone has heard or used this before. And do you recommend it.

I have cricket and I get great service. 49.10 a month unlimited. No joke. I can text and talk as much as I want. I actually have better service than I gt with verizon t-mobile and att. I set my account up to automatically charge my checking account so I pay for free. They charge you to pay any other way. and I get internet with that too although I thik=nk I am not supposed to. It is only another 5 bucks if they catch on.

prepaids are a waste. i had one for 3 years! i hated counting my minutes! someone wants to screw with you they send you a ton of messages so you run out of minutes! I had t-moible pay to go and i hated the son of a bitch!! i was so happy not having to count my minutes and made sure i wasn't running out. it is a hassle man trust me. better off getting a plan that dont cost much for just call/text because thats all pre paids are.

Dude, I had tracfone twice, and ABSOLUTELY HATED IT. same with virgin mobile... gay as AIDS! Tracfone has crappy and slow service.

I am paying like, $30-$40 more a month, and I dont ever have to worry about running low on minutes, text, and I have unlimited internet. all for around $95 a month, but when my military discount kicks in, itll be around $85/month.

Here's what i have

iPhone
450 anytime W/ Rollover (basically unlimited for me)
unlimited txt
unlimited data
I only have to carry my phone, not my phone and iPod


Its well worth it to me to have that stuff. Granted, I have to keep the same phone for 2 years, and stay with At&t for 2 years, but that doesnt bother me at all. I love my iPhone, and i'm only paying a little more a month, and getting WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY more goodies than tracfone could ever hope to dream of.

That you will switch providers... locking a consumer into a contract is a businessman's dream.
