Okay I don't know about you, but my contract phone service is about to drive me crazy. We have been with two different carriers over the last few years, and with both it sometimes feels like we are chained into a program that we aren't sure will even be the same six months from now.
**Soap Box Alert**
Don't you love how two years ago they made it mandatory to have an unlimited data plan if you purchased a smart phone. They hyped the biggest and best phones then forced you to take a large plan reassuring you that it was for your own protection because you would be using all that data anyway. So if you had a small plan you would rack up exorbitant charges when you used all the data they said we would be using. Then two months ago they say they are now going to limit the data usage, and you never really used all that much after all, so you wont miss it. Yah they really wanted to protect me...riiiigghhht. AARRGGGHHh it makes me want to pull out my hair!
(Okay off the soap box now)
Well, over the past year or so I have been hearing more and more about this company called Straight Talk from my friends and family members. They don't require contracts, and they actually have (gasp) various plans to choose from that DON'T break the budget! Everything I get on my contract plan for my (Oh how I LOVE it) Droid, I can get through smart talk for what looks to be much less moolah. Wonder how much fabric I could buy with the extra money every month??? Shhh don't tell my hubby he would want to go golfing with it or something!
When I realized that the contract carriers were never going to stop pulling stunts like this I started looking into Straight talk. it just blew me away to learn that: yes they have Android smart phones, they have Aps, they have games, awesome monthly plans, and all with the coveted NO CONTRACT. You aren't tied down to one company for a looong time. Also they still offer the unlimited data plan, and let me tell you its at a MUCH better price than what you have to pay the contract carriers for one now. Try unlimited calls, text, MMS, and web for only $45! THAT'S IT ...not in addition to another base amount just $45!! With nation wide coverage to boot!
Another thing I like about them is their sense of humor this video had me ROLLING!!
and this one: Feel Richer with Android
For information on my beloved Android check out this one:The power of Android
So let me know what you think... should I give my contract company the boot and switch? Have you tried Straight talk? What do you think about them? Give me honesty here people!!!! I have a decision to make next month when my contract is up!!
Have a great day and God bless!!
