As you might have guessed by now, cell phones and the cost of them have been an "interest" of mine for a while. A lot of people fall for expensive plans hook, line and sinker, but honestly, do we really have to pay through our teeth for good cell coverage? I don't think so.
Just when I thought that I'd heard of every mobile phone carrier out there, a different one appears. This one is called Straight Talk and, from what I can see, that is pretty much what it is. There are no surprises, just everything you need in a good plan. Unlimited monthly service is just $45 for calls, text and picture messaging, and web service. An even better deal is yearly service for $499.
Want all of the newest and greatest phones from the best manufacturers? Don't worry. They carry LG, Nokia, Motorola and other national brands.
And when you need to just call a friend, coverage is great - nationwide.
My favorite thing about Straight Talk is not the phone - or even the coverage. You see, I am beyond frugal. I pinch pennies like you wouldn't believe. The fact that I can get virtually the same phone plans as the other guys yet pay only about half the price is the most valuable thing to me. Check out Straight Talk and see if you don't agree. Yeah, mom knows best.
