Straight Talk Phones
Straight Talk phones first went on sale the summer of 2009, and were an immediate hit, mainly because the very attractive prepaid pricing on the their wireless service plans. But what about the phones themselves, are they any good?
There's only one way to find out for sure, and that is to buy the phone and test it out. But since you're probably wanting to read up on the phone BEFORE you buy, I've collected links to the Fone-Review reviews of Straight Talk phones here to help you out in your research.
Every phone has it's pros and cons, and I hope that you find these reviews useful as your doing your research.
