    Why was Simple Mobile not on this list?

  2. James Moore Says:

    Straight Talk beats all these plans and has smartphones. From what i saw here I would not switch to any of these companies!!

  3. Michael Says:

    I have Net 10, my gf has Straight Talk, yes, both are cheap. But the service is also rather shoddy. Especially if you have plans of using the internet at a good speed. Maybe it could be my area, so it might not be the same all over, but the internet creeps and crawls. I also have coworkers that use Straight Talk with an Android OS device. It’s a bit faster than my internet, but nothing near the speeds that you could get for paying a little bit more.
