Straight Talk Review
Bottom Line

Straight Talk uses all four of the national carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint) to provide nationwide service. The cheapest plan is very limited, but the step up plan (Est. $45 per month) isn't a bad deal with its unlimited data, though only the first 5 GB are at LTE speeds, and a further step up adds versatile international service. Network performance can vary widely, however, depending on which network is providing your service, and customer service draws mixed feedback.

Pros
  • Uses all four national carriers for service
  • Good options for international callers
  • Can use your own phone
Cons
  • Limited plan options and features
  • Mixed grades for customer service
