After reading so many comments and doing my research, I still considered and purchased Straight Talk - I am very satisfied with the service. I was paying over $100 a month plus overage fees with my previous carrier, so paying over $50+ less makes Straight Talk a great option. I use my phone primarily for texting and calling rather than internet surfing, so the debate over the strength of Straight Talk's internet didn't sway me. I also was excited to be on the dependable and wide reaching Verizon network that truly gives me the best coverage around - I have yet to drop a call. Potential buyers need to keep in mind that Straight Talk is a prepaid company so if they are expectig IPhones or something of that level, they will of course be disappointed. However, the selection of phones is more than decent and well priced considering a major carrier wil make you take a contract in order to purchase a high-end phone. For me, the cancellation fees I paid were worth being with a company where I pay only for what I need the phone for - keeping in touch with my family.
