    Best value i could find

    Overall this is the best value i could find, i have sold sprint and at&t phones along with net 10, trac phone and boost. I was also a verizon member for 4yrs and i tried out net 10. I'm not very big on cell phones, but i feel they are pretty necessary nowadays. I have had this service since November '09 and have not had any issues with it. "CONS" The web browsing is slow, but for the price its better than dial up. The phone doesn't record video, which makes sense because it doesn't have an sd slot but it was expected since it has a camera. Also at the beginning of every call it says the balance, which is very annoying especially when one knows they have plenty of minutes ( last month i was at over 70hrs of talk time). Pros: cheap, works almost everywhere, minutes, text and web all rolled over (except when i got over 80hrs i think it reset.) Can record my voice as a ring tone. Verdict: The service is well priced for those who don't need unlimited but use over 400min/month and 200texts, nothing out there comes close. The web browsing is cool if only for the fact that it doesn't cost extra.

    Very Poor Customer Service
    11/21/2010

    Customer service is very poor. The phone when it works is great, but if you have any problem do not expect much in the way of a response from customer service. I have been trying to resolve problems with my phone for the last several months and have spent over 10 hours on the phone trying to resolve these problems. My phone has been shut off, I have had the multimedia / web browser functions disabled, I have been unable to access my account on line. My phone is not working at all right now. My wife is disabled and I have an elderly mother. I need a working phone. I have had multiple tickets generated by customer service and spent many hours on the phone with no resolution. My last experience with customer service was having a phone with no multimedia / web capability. Now the phone that does not work at all and I was told I would have to wait another 24- 48 hours to have it fixed. I wonder if they have anyone capable of fixing the problem. Stay away from this product if you are looking for reliable servce.

    I received my LG 290C on time. The online setup was easier than expected and setting up voice mail was a breeze. The features included on this phone are a great value for the price. I use Straight Talks option to purchase 3 month unlimited talk cards. The per month charge is the same but you don't have the hassle of recharging time each month. The only down side is that the browser is slow and knocks you off often but for the price of the phone and monthly cost, you can't beat it.

    The numbers are large, the setup is very much like other phones which make it easy to change over to. The monthly charge is a great value. I'm saving $86.00 a month...goodbye Sprint!!!

    good phone for the basics...battery life is decent, ease of use is good, the Smart Talk package works for me and this phone uses the Verizon towers/network which seems to have better coverage in my area. The $30.00/mo. for 1000 minutes/1000 texts beats my old AT&T package. I'm very satisfied with the deal.

    • A. Depends on which straight talk plan you purchase, it does have unlimited text, call, and internet if you buy the $40.00 a month card, but not with the $30.00 card.

    • A. That depends upon which Straight Talk plan you purchase...for $45/mo., you get the unlimited features you're asking about. For $30/mo., you get 1000 min. of talk, 1000 texts, and a reasonable amount of web access.

    • A. You would have to buy the unlimited call text and web card for $45/month. Or you could do the 1000min, 1000texts, 30mb web for $30/month

    • A. It depends on the plan you buy. You can either call, buy online, or go to any Walmart to buy a plan, either a $30 or $45 unlimited plan. The $30 includes 1000 minutes, 1000 texts, and 30 mb of data usage. The $45 unlimited plan is just that: unlimited. Text, call, or browse the internet as much as you'd like. Each plan lasts 30 days, and from experience, it's best to refill a day or two before the expiration date so you don't forget. If you forget and your phone gets shut off, it's a hassle. You have to reactivate your phone if it gets shut off. There's no reactivation fee or anything, it's just irritating.
