With the exception of @jewelsoftime, the answers here are somewhat misleading. You DON'T get unlimited high-speed data. You get 3GB of high-speed (including LTE) data per month but the speed drops to 2G after you use that data up. 2G is extremely slow and is good for email but little else. That said, this is still the best deal out there. I have been a customer for over a year and I highly recommend it.

NO NO NO it is not unlimited! It is a great plan if you just talk txt and surf the web but if you stream movies and shows it will eat up your data fast and surfing the web becomes super slow, pages take forever to load until you get back in wi fi then it's fine. I can watch 16 40 min shows then straight talk will send me a txt saying your data speed has been slowed down. So I watch how many shows I watch and mins of the shows. I have boring graveyard shift job w/ no wifi. It is a good plan just keep track of your streaming time and you will be fine.

The unlimited data is for 3gb of high speed data. if you use a program like PDA net to hook up the internet to your computer thru your phone it will use the 3gb in no time at all. After that you will only have a bare minimum of data speed. So slow it takes 5 minutes to get to a web page on your phone.
I found this out trying to let my Granddaughter watch movies while I was babysitting. It would work for about a day and then the next day no go. So I called and was told the above. As soon as you renew your unlimited card you have another 3gb high speed data but be sparing with it. Data is not unlimited overall.

the $45.00 unlimited is very much so unlimited. my sister uses that because she has no internet at her house and uses her phone constantly to check email, facebook, and look things up. She has never had a problem and only is unable to get on when her 30 days is up. a simple refill of time and she is up and running for another 30 days.

Most definitely yes to both your questions, but its less important to view the $45 monthly plan for minutes since its intrinsically an unlimited voice plan regardless if the call is outbound or incoming.

What is metered is the data, currently the plan is for 2.5GB at 3G of monthly data which isn't much since two NetFlix movies could soak that away.

Blackberries and Androids regardless if they're prepaid respect data usage by downloading email summaries such as the title, sender, date and first few lines w/o automatically downloading embedded images like HTML email messages until you configure the phone to do so.

Blackberries are no exception and most customary usage will be well served at 2.5GB at 3G. Even if the 2.5 limit is bleached,the device drops to "2G" which feels more like a cheap DSL line and still handle emails and most web traffic but streaming video and youtube will just cause tears and misery.

lynne, since your question is being posted under the $45 Unlimited Plan, the answer to your questions are:

1. Yes, you can call anywhere in the U.S. (plus Puerto Rico and USVI) whether it be long distance or local.

2. The unlimited minutes can either be calls you make or calls you receive. No minutes are used either way as this particular plan gives you "unlimited" minutes outgoing or incoming.

nine8102, Walmart will charge sales tax in those states and local jurisdictions that require sales tax be collected on phone cards whether one is purchasing online or at a store.

Example, if I put my Washington state address in my online order, Walmart will definitely charge sales tax (plus another miscellaneous fee).

If I put the address of the other state where I live half the time of the year (and actually the state where I declare domicile), there will be NO sales tax charged (even though that state has a sales tax, they do not require sales tax to be charged on phone cards).

Again, it will depend on your location whether you get charged sales tax or the other miscellaneous fees I mentioned previously.

Thanks.

savanna, there won't be any "hidden" charges ...in other words, I don't believe Straight Talk will try to "hide" extra charges from you. However, they are required to charge what your local jurisdiction requires. Straight Talk also does NOT charge an extra fee for using a credit card.

Yes, in some locations (depending on the state, county, or city you're located), there can be sales tax charged and also some miscellaneous access fees (usually amounting to less than $2). Straight Talk (and/or Walmart) will only charge what your local jurisdiction requires. It's not a Straight Talk decision to charge sales tax or the amount to charge and they are not keeping any of those fees or taxes.

In some places there will be no sales tax charged on phone cards or phone service even though there is a general sales tax in that state. I'll give you an example. I am a "snowbird" and spend time in two states. If I buy Straight Talk service in one state, I get NO sales tax or extra fees charged even though that states has a general sales tax as they do not require sales tax to be charged on phone cards.

If I buy Straight Talk service in the other state, not only do I get charged sales tax but also a bunch of little access fess (911 access, miscellaneous regulatory fees, etc.).

I now buy service from Walmart giving them my address in the former state as I save about a dollar-something a month. Or will buy a service card at a Walmart store in that state if I need one as no sales tax will be charged.

Again, it will all depend on YOUR location.

When I purchased a Straight Talk phone and card for my sister, I walked out of the store with a phone number and active service. I eventually switched to Auto Refill with a credit card. When my sister passed away a few weeks ago, I cancelled the Auto Refill. It was very easy - one 5 minute phone call and no hassle at all, and I received a text that Auto Refill was cancelled. It also showed up on the phone and account right away.

Where can I see the coverage map

Rookie
on Straight Talk Unlimited* Text, Talk and Web Access 30-Day Service Card (Email Delivery)
4 answers
Answers
answer 1
Rookie, I guess you didn't think much of my response nor the two other responses that gave you links to the Straight Talk website.

Again, there is NO general coverage map as Straight Talk uses all four of the major carriers ...AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.

Each phone model Straight Talk sells will use one of those networks. One model may use Verizon and another model may use AT&T.

It will depend on what phone (brand and model of phone) you use with Straight Talk on what the coverage map will look like.

Once you determine what phone you are going to use or purchase, that phone is already preassigned to use one of the four major carrier's towers or network. It will use that network for the life of the phone while it's on Straight Talk no matter where you travel in the U.S.

For example, if you choose a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon towers, that phone will use Verizon for the life of the phone no matter where you travel in the U.S.

The coverage map for Verizon native coverage look like this (copy-and-paste);

http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/Default.aspx?requesttype=NEWREQUEST?requesttype=newsearch&coveragetype=prepay

It will be all of the area shaded in purple where you will have actually both voice and 3G data coverage.

However, if you choose a Straight Talk phone that uses AT&T, for instance, the coverage map will look different.

Again, an approximate summary for Straight Talk coverage (all four networks) can be found on this one page and originally came from the Straight Talk website ...these are Straight Talk maps !!!:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DClNAYFn7F0/UW2SPTyj4SI/AAAAAAAAF-M/UQz5QVvwBR0/s1600/StraightTalk.jpeg

The four maps correspond to this:

GSM-T = T-mobile
GSM-A = AT&T
CDMA-S = Sprint
CDMA-V = Verizon

I apologize if this is not helpful but "it is the way it is" if you want a coverage map for Straight Talk service. Straight Talk is a MVNO (meaning they buy bulk service from major carriers to resell) so they do not own their own towers. They use the towers of the four major carriers. Therefore, for practical purposes, you actually have four coverage maps to look at and what one you ultimately use will depend on what phone you choose to use on Straight Talk.

Here are the four maps that will give you a rough idea of each network Straight Talk uses (copy-and-paste):

http://www.howardforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=73733&d=1317514556

GSM-T = T-mobile
GSM-A = AT&T
CDMA-S = Sprint
CDMA-V = Verizon

However, those maps may not be as up-to-date as if you went to the individual carrier's website and used their interactive maps.

Remember, CDMA or Verizon and Sprint will provide service only in their native coverage areas ...in other words, no roaming. GSM or AT&T and T-Mobile have very limited roaming when using Straight Talk.
