Straight Talk!

a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Calling all cell phone users! Looking for a great cell phone with a low monthly plan? If so, Straight Talk may be just what you NEED! They require NO contracts, No termination fees, and NO credit checks! Straight Talk offers an All You Need Plan which includes 1000 minutes, 1000 text messages, and 30 mb of web data! They offer unlimited monthly service for $45 a month which includes text, picture, messaging and web! Now that is a great deal! Straight Talk has everything you need! You can also call a friend out of the country! they have excellent international plans!

Straight Talk has great phone selections as well. For $10 you can purchase a re-conditioned cell phone. Although these phones are re-conditioned they still come with mp3 payers, web access, camera, bluetooth and more! I'm thinking those would be great for teenage users! I would prefer their selection of smart phones. These phones have touch screens, voice navigation, video recorder, plus more! Sounds like Straight Talk will have people hook, line and sinker!

Now, I have seen cell phone prices go up. It's definitely worth it to check out Straight Talk. With no contracts or activation fees you cant go wrong!!
