Straight talk cell phones

Anyone use straight talk for their cell phones? I currently have AT&T with 2 smart phones on the acct and its about $180 a month. With straight talk they have an unlimited everything plan for $45 a month each. Does anyone use this? I have an iPhone 5 and the wife has a galaxy s2, does the iPhone have to be jail broken to do this? Next question; is jail breaking an iPhone 5 worth it? What's the differences really? Just free music and apps? Thanks in advance

I've never heard of straight talk but we use AT&T also and recently switched to their mobile share plan. Depending on your data usage you may be able to save $50-$60/month by doing that.

I also jailbroke my iPhone 4 for a while, it gives you more flexibility and access to some apps that apple doesn't allow. It depends on how much you really feel you need to customize your iPhone. After about a month I switched back to a unjailbroken iPhone. Now I have a Galaxy s4

good luck.

Both my kids have straight talk phones (Galaxy S) and we have had great service out of them. After taxes and fees its around $52.00 each for Unlimited talk, text and 3G Data. Straight Talk uses the verizon network so the coverage is great in our area too. I am currently on a plan with Verizon that runs out in Feb '14 and am planning on going to Straigh talk after it runs out. I don't know anything about the jail broken stuff so I will leave that alone.

Well, I'm very interested in something that would shave $100 bucks off of my bill. I think cell phone pricing is the biggest rip off going!

We use T-Mobile's Family plan. 2 phones with unlimited talk, text, and data (the first 2 GB are fast, above that it's slow), and 2 unlimited talk only (one as a house line, one for the father in law) cost us about $140 / month after fees and taxes.

Our biggest issue with Tmobile and ATT is the rather crappy, read have to go outside the house, signal out at our house and my wife's work place.

I've had AT&T since Ive had a cell phone, so I'm use to their coverage. I think straight talk can use AT&T as well as version and tmobil?
