Straighttalk Phones

Alrighty now...need some help here please.

I had a little $45 LG flip phone that I thought was wearing out, plus wanted to upgrade. So bought the LG505c that has a 4 star rating, gonna be less than that when I get thru reviewing, I hope. It sucks for forum use and won't open a lot of things online.
Shop for LG 505C Straight Talk Prepaid Cell Phones at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.

Does anyone know the best straight talk phone for internet usage? Hopefully for under $100. I do love Straight Talk, both for price and reception.

I use straighttalk and there is a phone that looks similar to a blackberry, is a touchscreen, considered a smart phone. I had it for quite some time and it worked wonderful for internet and facebook/email use. The only reason I upgraded is because my pup chewed it up. At radioshack it is $37. I have had no problems with straightalk. It seems to be an alright company for me.

I don't know anything about the phones for Straight Talk, but I just want to listen in because I am curious about Straight Talk.

If they go 4G I will(most likely) be switching over. I have just gotten too used to the speed with Verizon. I would LOVE to save the money, but I don't think I could deal with slow data. My other concern is coverage where I am and travel. Does ZERO good to save the $ if you have no signal/service....
Once the "season" is over I will be going in to pick one up for a test drive. I will not go in a WalMart from Thanksgiving thru Jan 10th. It is just to freakin' crazy.

Sigh...have no idea which phone you are talking about. There is a Samsung Galaxy, supposed to be like a blackberry, for like $60 that walmart employee told me not to buy as everyone brings them back.

Check in your area and see if they use verizon towers and your coverage there. ST uses verizon here, TN, and I can make calls where others can't.

I like Straight Talk for price and reliability. Unlimited talk, text and data for $50.69/30 days. That price includes tax and 911 charge here. Never a dropped call on my part. You have to deal with peeps from India if you have a problem that needs a person. They are better now about being able to understand them than when I first started with ST 3 years ago. Also the automated 411 does not understand southern drawl. That nearly drove me nuts till I figured out what the problem was. Just talk short and clipped and you get your number.
