Straight Talk to start activating Verizon LTE devices


If you happen to have a Verizon LTE device and want to get hooked up with a prepaid plan from Straight Talk, you are in luck as the carrier is starting to take SIM card orders for Verizon devices. The addition of Verizon LTE devices as an option for Straight Talk customers should not be too big a surprise since Straight Talk is a Verizon MVNO.

SIM cards for Verizon devices run only $6.99. Straight Talk will not be shipping the new SIM cards for at least a couple weeks while they wait for them to be delivered before they can ship them to their customers. Straight Talk’s primary plan for smartphones runs $45 per month and includes unlimited talk, text and 3 GB of data. Straight Talk does throttle data speeds once customers hit 3 GB of data, bringing the speed down to only 64 kbps.

Straight Talks gives small data bump to $45 plan


Straight Talk, the no contract pre-paid wireless provider, has announced a small bump in the data limit on their $45 per month plan. The unlimited talk and text plan now gets 3GB of data per month, a small increase from the 2.5GB limit that was in place. Since Straight Talk does not charge overage fees, users who go over the new 3GB limit will find their data speeds throttled down to 2G type performance. Straight Talk has also enhanced their $30 “All You Need” plan for non-smartphone users to provide unlimited text, 1500 minutes of voice and 100MB of data. For the rest of May Straight Talk will have demo units available at Walmart stores on Saturdays for potential buyers to try out and is offering a $25 Walmart gift card if a Samsung Galaxy Centura or Discover phone is purchased in May.

Straight Talk now offering nano SIM cards for compatible phones

ATT nano sim straight talk

Straight Talk is now officially offering nano SIM cards for devices to be used on its network, which is great news for those of you that wanted to give the service a try but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of cutting down a larger SIM card to work in your phone. Theses nano SIM cards run $6.99, which is the same price as their other two size options.

There’s not a whole lot of devices that use this incredibly small card, but if you have a Moto X or newer Motorola Droid device you’ll be able to use one of these. We’ll probably start seeing this SIM card become the standard as phones get thinner and smaller, too, so this is a good move to prepare for that.

If you need one, hit the link below to place an order.

Straight Talk now offering AT&T 4G LTE compatible SIM cards


If you are a buyer looking to avoid contracts and subsidies, opting instead for prepaid service plans, you may be interested in Straight Talk’s latest move to offer service via the AT&T 4G LTE network. Previously it was only available on the 4G HSPA+ network.

According to Straight Talk, their plans start as low as $45 per month for unlimited talk, text, and data access. A word of caution though – just because Straight Talk provides access to the AT&T network does not mean you can take full advantage of it. In the past Straight Talk has been sued for throttling users at relatively low limits and they seem to have learned their lesson as they make a point to let buyers know they reserve the right to throttle and speeds can vary.

If you are interested in getting one of these SIM cards, just hit the source link and commence your shopping.

Samsung Galaxy Discover Spotted In The Wild, Brings A Pure Android Experience For Budget Customers



Samsung has officially taken the wraps off its newest budget-level device that’s headed straight for Straight Talk and Net10’s wireless networks. The device is called the Galaxy Discover and comes with some modest specs including an 800MHz processor, 3.5-inch HVGA display, 2.7GB of storage built-in and a 3-megapixel rear camera. While those specs leave a lot to be desired— the Galaxy Discover does have one thing most (Samsung) devices don’t— a unmolested Android experience. That’s right friends— the Galaxy Discover comes loaded up with stock Ice Cream Sandwich running the show, which gives a surprising treat to potential customers. Of course the Galaxy Discover probably doesn’t have the specs to run a TouchWiz-flavored Ice Cream Sandwich experience, but we don’t think too many potential customers would complain about having stock Android and all.

So while the device is officially out in the open– it is still unclear of when it will be available for purchase for Straight Talk and Net10 customers, but here’s hoping we see the device sooner than later.
