I don't have this phone yet, but researching for an upgrade. Have used ST for 2+ years now using an old Samsung flip-phone. (Yes, they do still sell them :). ST offers 2 plans but the smart phones only work with the $45/month unlimited minutes, texts, data for a month. No need to purchase extra minutes. Based on monthly charge, not minutes
Straight Talk has 3 options with monthly plans as far as I am aware of.
$35 - 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and some data too. (Walmart and Straighttalk.com has more information on the specifics).
Then they have a Unlimited Plan and an International Calling plan as well, that cost a little more.
With the unlimited plan you just need to pay for the next month to get more minutes for that month.
With the 35 limited plan, you can add a card before the service end date (a month) expires, it will just change the next service end date.
I haven't used or looked into the international plan, Straighttalk.com could probably answer that if needed.
Hope that helps a little.
This phone requires you purchase the unlimited minutes/talk/text/data $45 card.
i don't think so. This phone works with the $45 unlimited Talk Text and data plan ( although some say data is only good up to 2GB)
This phone only works with the $45 unlimited card. So your mins will be unlimited.
