Awhile ago I mentioned that my cell phone contract was about to expire, so I was looking at new options. After doing a bunch of research I've decided to go with Straight Talk. There's no contract required, and with all of the research that I did I started to feel like the whole contract thing is on its way out. Why be tied down by one when you can get everything you need without it?
Of course, price is a major deciding factor. I could get unlimited service (with calls, texting, everything I need) for just $45 a month or $499 a year, with none of those pesky activation or termination fees. The also have an affordable plan for international long distance, so I can call a friend anytime no matter where they are. (In fact, it was actually a friend's mother who first mentioned Straight Talk to me because she likes her plan so much. Guess it's true that mom knows best.)
Even though Straight Talk is really affordable (I'm spending my future cell phone bill savings in my head already), that doesn't mean that they only offer cheap or outdated phones. They've got a great selection of phones to choose from with all of the features that you could ever want. If I want to I can get the same LG phone I'm using now, and great coverage too. Really, the only downside is that I didn't switch to Straight Talk sooner.
