I am thinking about switching to Straight Talk cell service. Does anyone know how well it works around here? I am getting the Samsung Slider with the letters. If you use this service...please let me know how your service is, and what phone you use. Thanks

I have straight talk and use the samsung slider and I love it. It's way cheaper- I use the $30 service because you get 16 hours of time and I usually don't use but 3 hours a month. I only use the phone when I'm out to call home or whatever. But I love the service and the freedom. I live in Gilbert town and I can use my phone in my living room- in fact I have often when my cordless dies and also to text my brother back and forth all day. I really like it a lot better than when i had alltel.
One word of advice- make sure you renew your time the day it's due or you'll lose your phone number. You can have it set up to bill a credit card that day every month and it's a lot easier.

Thanks eveyone! I will be using it in Gilbert, Williamson, Logan, and Beckley most of the time. I think it uses Verizon towers. Does anyone know about why it doesn't work well in KY and Tenn? I am glad to find a phone that works in Gilbert!

I think Kentucky uses a different cell provider for certain areas. It's mainly in the Eastern part of KY and the Middlesboro/Cumberland Gap area where they have trouble picking up. No problems in Wv,Va,Oh, and N.C, works good. For 45$, you cant beat it for unlimited services.

I have AT&T and it works great in Gilbert,Justice and I even get a bar or two in Hanover and everywhere else you often go,Logan,Charleston,Williamson ,Beckley,Welch,Princeton,Ocean a,
Pinville,Morgantown. It works great in TN and Florida and no there's no roaming. I wouldn't give up my iPhone for any of those other crappy phones. Smart Phones are the way to go. I hate those stupid slider ones.

AT&T doesnt work in williamson, they are only cdma towers there not GSM so they cant pick up..If you get service in gilbert and justice without a 3 watt booster then you are the 1st person. Straight talk wont work in williamson, ky or parts of va and tn due to they do not have an agreement with appalachian wireless to use their towers. If they ever come to an agreemement with them straight talk would be the way to go...cheap monthly plan..cant beat that. But seriously doubt that they will let them use their towers, hurts their business and they are not a very large company like verizon, sprint or ntelos.

I know it does work in Williamson and I don't have a bit a problem in Va either. I know when and where my phone works and yes it does work in Gilbert and Justice and I don't have a booster and no I'm not the first person,everyone I know it works for them. My whole family has AT&T and their phones work there as well.

straight talk is good around here, downfall is you cant use it in williamson. I was curious about at&t working here, so I got my sisters phone, who lives in Man and works here in Gilbert. She has an ATT phone because she lives in man but had to buy a verizon prepaid to use in Gilbert because her Iphone wont work here. Anyway, she and I went through Gilbert and to Hanover and her phone wouldnt pick up enough signal to call out. I wouldnt mind switching to ATT cause my kids want an Iphone but cant use it anywhere around here. It would be useless. I can use my verizon phones at home, I even took my home phone completely out.
