Straight Talk

  • The baby of a partnership between TracFone and Walmart
  • Caters to the budget friendly consumer who wants a phone with no hassles
  • Considered a Mobile Virtual Network operator (MVNO) offering both CDMA and GSM support

Straight Talk  offers a variety of prepaid, no contract, phones to include Apple iPhones, Alcatel, LG, Huawei, Samsung and ZTE.  The company is gaining a quick share of the wireless market due to offering so much data for such a little price (and partnering with the largest retailer on the Planet helps).  People who want to save a boat load of money will definitely want to look into switching their current phone rather than buying a new one to Straight Talk (customers can also use their current GSM or CMDA).
