The Straight Talk website lists current Straight Talk phones for sale in each region, but users can find more detailed specifications and benchmarks at PhoneArena.com. Buyers can also find phones compatible with Straight Talk on Amazon.com.
Since Straight Talk offers prepaid plans, it doesn't discount its phones as much as major carriers. Unlike contract plans with major carriers, Straight Talk has no guarantees that its customers are going to stay for extended periods, so it cannot guarantee discounts. However, users willing to purchase phones outright or carry over phones from previous providers generally pay less for comparable prepaid plans.
Straight Talk is the brand name of Walmart's collaboration with TracFone Wireless. Unlike major carriers, such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, TracFone leases network access from other providers. As a result, users have a wider array of phone choices when using its services. Users can purchase SIM cards designed to work with AT&T networks or use phones designed for T-Mobile devices. However, users must use phones that are unlocked or branded for their networks.
In addition to using Straight Talk's website, users can find Straight Talk phones in Walmart stores. Buyers interested in other TracPhone providers should consider TracFone and NET10-branded plans, which offer similar pricing and phone compatibility.
