Yes, its the best. They will offer you either an ATT sim or TMobile sim card (if your phone is unlocked and compatible with either)...I get better speed and reception with TMobile in AZ.
Richard, yes, you can purchase both the Plan and the SIM card online at Walmart. You can also purchase them directly from Straight Talk online. You will need both as the $45 Plan itself does NOT include the SIM card. Go to this page to purchase the SIM card at $6.99 from Walmart (copy-and-paste):
You have many options on how to purchase service. Yes, your phone will require one of the Unlimited Plans. They are available as follows:
$45 for 30-days (in store or online), or multiples of 90-, 180-, or 365-day bundles at a discount (both online at Walmart or online or over the phone from Straight Talk directly ....365-day block only available from Straight Talk directly ...paying a year in advance puts the monthly cost at $41.25 per month). Also available is the $60 International Unlimited Plan. The only Plan you can't use is the $30 Plan.
When purchasing service online at Walmart, you have all Walmart payment options available to you, i.e. credit or debit card, Walmart credit card, Walmart Gift Card, PayPal, Walmart credit line, etc. When purchasing at Straight Talk, you can use a credit or debit card and possibly etf from a checking account (I'm not certain about this option but you can call Straight Talk for more information if needed.).
You can also put service in "reserve" to be used to extend your "Service End Date" or to use as designated in your Straight Talk account.
Also available is "Auto-Refill" where Straight Talk will charge your debit or credit card automatically for service in advance so you don't even have to think about having to manually purchase service in intervals.
If I've left anything out, post again ...from one Richard to another.
