EZRIDER327: Great service form Straight Talk? Have you used it ? I KNOW you have not dealt with ST customer service
mpham19741: Straight talk's voice service sucks. All the people I'm on the phone with don't understand what I'm saying cause they said I sound like I'm under water
Sheranda Brown: I tired of the searching for signal when im at walmart or other places.
Sheranda Brown: Is straight talk phone service good. I have boost mobile now but the signal is horrible in certain area, but i love boost mobile service
Tiffany Rogers: Ya I Love Straight Talk :D
Derrick Anderson: I watched this video and it is very informative. I was going to go for Walmart Family Mobile, but T-Mobile service is not good in my area.
I decided to go for Straight Talk Wireless, because it has great coverage in my area plus great phones and unlimited plans at low prices. The phone that I got is the LG Optimus Dynamic Smartphone and has created a lot of excitement for me.
In my opinion, I feel that Straight Talk Wireless provides the largest nationwide coverage in the United States.
Delia Smith: Thanks for the info a whole year later lol
jaxo1: This video is a year old and some of the stuff has changed,
The FamilyMobile plan is now $39.88 with UNLIMITED talk, test and web.
Straight Talk is $45 for the same thing and they are both on the same T-Mobile network.
So, why would anyone pay the extra money for Straight Talk now and why does Walmart even bother offering two different plans that are so similar?
ScotticusMadison69: Small advice. Don't wear a black hat, -wear a white hat. Black people have different albedo factors that make it harder for the camera to pick up expressions. A white hat will diffuse the lighting allowing more visible expression (without you needing to squint into super bright lights)
Scott Barrett: Can't you use your own phone with either of those services (assuming it's unlocked and supports the network they use)? Also, Wal-Mart employees get a discount on family mobile, I'm not sure if they do on straight talk, but the discount takes the first line down to $30 / month, and each additional line to $24 / month. My only curiosity is if you can BYOP (bring your own phone) for the family mobile plans... Restricting ones self to the phones available for purchase from the companies seems silly.
KANEESHA CLARKE: How's the data on both??
rican3690: Which 1 is truly unlimited everything?
Jim Strother: great job, very helpful!
John Vaughn Jr: No problem thanks glad I could help.
LoveEachDay94: This is very helpful thank you!

Tony Owens: Pa
Tony Owens: How good is straighttalk coverage on an iphone 5 from straighttalk in linden
Laila Jacobs: Walmart Family Mobile is currently only $40 for the first line; $35 for each additional line. One-time $25 Starter Kit required per line. One simple plan with Unlimited Talk, Text & Web. Plan includes 1 GB of shared Web access at 3G speeds. T-Mobile's nationwide coverage. Must be an unlocked GSM phone or any phone that works with T-Mobile. Phones from other wireless providers may have some limitations on call quality and download speeds.
Azkal jr: i hv 4g here in las vegas started last week love this family mobile thanks
Innis Gbor: nice video but some incorrect info
Family mobile= now $20 activation kit first month bill you dont pay up front like you said any t mobile phones OK att phones must be unlocked, some Sim Verizon & sprint phones unlocked OK better coverage
Straight Talk= $ 15 start up kit plus $45 upfront. unlocked phones t-mobile, att, sprint, verizon ok not so better coverage
now you tell me who's the best or better
BobbyJComedian: right its post paid not prepaid !!! still no contract or credit check ...
nottafanboy6954: Yes, a number port is easy with Family Mobile, be prepared you will need your acct#, pass and or pin. Process can take 24-48 hours.
sberton2: Can you transfer your phone number from current carrier?

pawpower58: Sara, my wife and I both are on the straight talk $45 a month each phone. My wife is having a fit for a touch phone. I'm ok with my old phone b/c I only use it when I'm out on my Harley. Question to you is >>> What would be a good touch phone with great reception in the Columbia South Carolina calling area. With the junkers we have, our service is through att. We drop alot of calls but I'm sure it's b/c of the phones we now have. Waiting for your answer, and thanks in advance.
Zadstube: if it is unlocked or already a t-mobile one yes.
SaraST8: Hi Matthew, this is Sara from Straight Talk Wireless. If the iPhone phone you currently have is an unlocked phone, yes you can. You may need to purchase the SIM card from Straight Talk's Bring Your Own Phone program and the Unlimited plan. Should you need further assistance, feel free to send us an email at TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you!
Matthew Goodnight: Can you use an AT&T iPhone on straight talk?
Carrie D: Thank you, helped me make my decision!!
Arcosman: You can even use an unlocked iPhone
Dustin Yambrisak: Totally Incorrrect about phone selection with Walmart Family Mobile..
You can can take any T-Mobile phone and just pop the Family Mobile Sim Card in, and you're good to go!
As far as the $25 starter kit, just think of it as an activation fee.. You speak like its "so expensive" once you buy your initial Sim Card / Starter Kit, thats it! Never have to again..
Plus adding family lines is only $35 xtra per line a month.. Super Deal.. crapting on Str8 Talk..
protechrc: Good job John...I'm with T-Mobile now and will be speaking with my nephew tonight who works as a T-Mobile service rep..Since Legere (T-Mobile CEO) has changed the game plan for T-Mobile
dennisbulla11: Yes u can bring a phone to the Walmart family plan
Kenneth Brown: Can you bring a phone into Wal-mart family mobile?
ohshit109: On the website it says you can use your own phone.
ohshit109: Can't you use the iphone on walmart plan.
stalkingalizee: Straight Talk Androids use Sprint for data networks so avoid that crap like the plague! T-Mobile data is the best pre-paid you can get so go with Walmart.
kevin hairston: Straight talk and family mobile only work with gsm phones.family mobile also works with tmobile phobes as well as family mobile.straight talk service works on their phobes and any unlocked phones.go to their website and check byop.
kevin hairston: Family mobile activation kit includes sim card plus 1st month of service.
Roberto J Rodriguez: If you have an exsiting Verizon or Sprint Phone can you use it for either Walmart Family or Staright Talk... If not why?
tonyjh146tm: Virgin mobile is the best straght talk if go over 2 gb thy ether trotil your data or cut it our your phone all to gether go virgin ps look at other comits fm rip off customer go virgin best
