On each box of Straight Talk Phones.. you will see a small grouping of numbers in an oblong oval in the bottom left corner of the front panel. This phone is marked CDMA-V. Which means it runs on Verizon Network. Phones ending in -S run on Sprint.. such as the Samsung Galaxy SII phone. Phones with with no - and letters is for AT&T. You can also tell by looking at the U.S.A. map on the front bottom right.. the U.S.A. in Red is Verizon, In Blue is Sprint, No map is AT&T.

These use AT&T and are around/under $100:

Huawei Inspira $99.99

Samsung Galaxy Discover $99.88

ZTE Merit $89.88

LG Optimus Dynamic $79.88

I don't understand "sprit will do cause they use at@t also" ...if you mean "Sprint" then, no, Sprint does not use AT&T towers.

No.

That is called hot spot use/tethering.

Straight Talk terms of service strictly forbids hot spot and tethering use. If they catch you during monitoring, they can shut your account off without notice and without refund. There is also the possibility that your name/address/email and the like will be banned from using Straight Talk in the future.

If anyone tells you different, they are outright lying to you.

Question

what does unlimited service plan mean? down on the specs, it states 5.5 h talk time. what does it mean?

asked 1 year, 10 months ago
By
anna
on Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Prepaid Cell Phone
4 answers
Answers
answer 1
The 'unlimited plan' is simply the $45 phone card you buy every month and it includes unlimited talk minutes and data (what you'd use for anything besides calls).

Where the specs list 5.5 hours talk time, that is in reference to battery life. That means if the battery is fully charged, you'll have 5.5 hours of total talk time before the battery runs out. That's only if you're doing nothing but talking though.

The standby of 16 days is how long the battery can go without being charged when the phone is on, but not being used. Hope this helps!

answer 2
5.5hour of talk time means that you can talk on the phone from a fresh full battery for 5.5 hours of time provided you do not have wifi or other power consuming features on.

Unlimited is not actually unlimited. you get 100MB a day and 2GB a month data. You do get unlimited minutes but FCC regulates it to 10,000 minutes a month. Standard text messages are unlimited.

answer 3
Unlimited service plan - means you get a unlimited amount of minutes,text messages and data ( data is limited to 2GB per month though)

5.5 h talk time : means you could talk on your phone up to 5+ hours before it goes dead and needs charged.

answer 4
Unlimted means there are no limits to the amount of calls you make/receive, minutes used.

All text message are unlimited. No overages.

The only limits really that are on this phone comes down to data usage. Straight Talk limits are rumored, though not confirmed at 100mb per day, 2GB per 30 day period.

Straight Talk reserves the right to throttle your speeds, turn off your service for "abuse" of the network.

Remember, they are only leasing space on the towers from Verizon, they do not own them.
