So far I am very happy with my Samsung S425G Straight Talk Phone. I wanted a phone that had a slide out keypad and 3G. I am very pleased with my choice. My signal is great and my phone is very easy to use. The browsing is faster than I expected and all the features of the phone are awesome. Pics look great, texting is a snap with the keypad, and I can get my email messages on the go now.
***Here are a few things I found out about Straight Talk that will help you with choosing a phone:
I did a lot of research before purchasing my phone and I found out that straight talk is kinda like "trac phone" basically. Straight Talk is a plan that uses networks like Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. The type of straight talk phone you buy determines the network you will be using and there is NO ROAMING. I asked a lot of questions on the Straight Talk website and looked on You-Tube and Facebook and found out that the straight talk phones that end with a "G" use the AT&T network. I had a plan with AT&T and knew that as long as I found a phone that would use their network I would be sure to have signal everywhere I go.
Also keep in mind that Straight Talk phones come with a maufacturers warrantee but this only covers defects that would have occured during construction of the phone. Manufacturers defects. The only place you can get an extended warrantee for drops, humidity, basic usage damage, etc.. is Walmart. I recommend the extended warrantee. Its cheap and it covers accidents and everyday usage damage. After paying for a phone the last thing you want to do is have to buy another one because you dropped the first one in the toilet :)
Make sure you do your homework and find out which networks work best in your area and the areas you travel most then find out what phones use that network through straight talk. These are crucial steps that will assure the best product for you and your area.
