“The bring your own phone is very nice. I was able to use my old GSM phone without any problems. Transferring my phone numbers to Straight Talk was a breeze. I did everything online. As soon as I hit the NEXT button on their site my number was transferred.”

"They provide a low monthly bill that is free from extra fees and charges. I never have to worry about going over my monthly minutes or texts because they are unlimited."

Making the switch to Straight Talk was one of the best financial decisions I've ever made! I strongly encourage anyone looking to pinch a few more pennies in their budget to consider making the switch to Straight Talk. Just imagine all the things you could do if your monthly cellphone bill was just $30 or $45…
