I recently switched from T-mobile to Straight Talk. The $30.00 Straight Talk plan was about what I got from T-mobile for about $5.00 less. I got the slider phone like I really wanted. Do your homework before you buy, or you will be disappointed like me.
*Putting my music on the phone has been impossible. First the phone uses the old Samsung computer cable that is impossible to find because all the newer phones are already using the new USB-mini cables, when I finally found a place that sold it it was $20.00, the newer cables for the better phones are $7.00. Now that I have the cable I still haven't been able to put any songs on the phone, so I have to use 1 of the 7 crummy ring tones already put on the phone.
*Phone is heavy, I had a phone 15 years ago that was lighter.
*Slide out key board is not finger friendly, I do more back spacing then typing.
*The software on the phone just seems cheap. Like the calendar, contacts, web browser.
*Web browser wont let you watch a video. Overall I hate my phone and straight talk, its not worth saving $5.00 a month. In about 6 months or if I see a good T-mobile deal I'm going back to them. A warning about Straight Talk, if you have problems your on your own. I called the "customer care" line about not being able to get music to my phone and the guy on the phone didn't have a clue how to help me. When I asked him to help me set up my account so I could pre-pay for my minutes he has very difficult to understand, I ended up hanging up and doing it on there web site.
