Straight Talk to be offered at Walmart locations nationwide
Retail giant Walmart has made an announcement to start offering Straight Talk exclusively in more than 3,200 Walmart stores nationwide. Straight Talk first came to the scene by offering a $45 per month unlimited talk and messaging plan with a paltry data access of 30MB. Now that they've made a pact with the world's largest retailer, they'll provide competitive no-contract wireless plans to consumers shopping at the discount retailer. There will be two prepaid plans available for customers - $30 per month will give you 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30MB of data while the $45 per month option give you unlimited talk, text, and data. We're sure budget conscious consumers will see the value in the plans, but their handset offerings might not be the most up-to-date – the majority of them are flip handsets.

I just love the Straight Talk plans! It used to be that cheap meant you got inferior service but Straight Talk turned that philosophy on it's head. Both the $30 and the $45 unlimited plans are fantastic value for money. I've tried them all (Metro, Boost, Virgin etc) and let me tell you, none of them compare very well with Straight Talk. Most are more expensive and the ones that can claim roughly the same price are all small regional carriers with very limited coverage. Straight Talk uses the Verizon network which is without a doubt still the best. So you get true nationwide coverage at an incredible price. Watch out for those 'unlimited' plans from smaller carriers - roaming charges will make you weep as soon as you leave your hometown. This is the service to watch out for - it's already very popular (with good reason) and now they are extending their phone selection we will hopefully see more good things to come...

I was happy to see that they released the Samsung Finesse for sale with the StraightTalk plans. It's a touch screen phone that is comparable to the iPhone without the ridiculous bill at the end of the month. And as Cassie pointed out, it's on the Verizon network and has use of the towers across the country. I'm excited to go out and buy the Finesse when I get the cash so I can upgrade from my flip phone.

I am really pleased with my Straight Talk experience. I was tired of paying huge overage fees and dealing with an out-of-date contract so Straight Talk's no contract, $45 unlimited use plan was perfect for me. I was convinced that a prepaid company would have terrible service, but Straight Talk is on the Verizon network so I have yet to worry about missed calls or messages like I did with my previous carrier. I was even able to purchase a phone - the Samsung Finesse is a great Smart Phone without the contract or fees of an IPhone. I can afford a great phone like the Finesse since I am saving $50 a month with Straight Talk over my previous carrier - that means I could be saving nearly $1,200 over the next two years. For someone who is always on their phone and really wants to get the bang for buck, Straight Talk offers just that. You are in control of your bill - not a contract.

Straight Talk wireless blows all of the other prepaid plans out of the water! It offers such a great deal with so many wonderful perks. I use the unlimited texts/calls plan for only $45! This prepaid plan is saving me over $500 a year, how great is that? It is also on the Verizon network which = THE BEST COVERAGE AROUND! Not to mention, I got my phone from Walmart where its sold exclusively nationwide for a fabulous price that is so reasonable. More people need to know and try this wonderful plan, it truly is worth every cent!
