I was totally shocked when I received my latest cell phone bill. After a death in the immediate family, I used my cell phone as never before. The calls were coming, the texts were flying,and I didn't know how to reach my best fiend who had moved to Japan, as the cost was was prohibitive. Then I found Straight Talk for an unbelievable $45 a month or unlimited messaging and texts for $499 a year and I was chose it Hook, line and sinker Why would I choose them, because I could get 1000 texting, 1000 minutes and a great deal more. I could Call a friend at last because the international calls are at good low rate. And I can call Internationally almost anywhere. What more could I ask? Plenty. They also furnish Android on Straight Talk and I could choose my new phone from a great selection of smart phones. There was no contract, no activation and reactivation and not a whole bunch of extra charges for terminating your contract. I could even get a phone for as little as $10. Now try and beat that anywhere. I could see where I could take that trip to Branson on the money I was going to save because my bill was half what it used to be. I was delighted.
