There are two different Straight Talk plans, the $30 per month "All You Need" plan and the $45 per month "Unlimited Plan".
All You Need Plan
This plan offers a flat monthly fee of $30 per month. You get 1000 minutes, 1000 text messages, and 30 meg of data. If this were a regular prepaid plan for $30 a month you would expect to get 250 minutes and texts and data are extra expensive. This is the best value Nationwide prepaid plan yet released.
This $45 per month plan gives you unlimited calling, texting and data nationwide anywhere the Verizon network works. There are a lot of small regional cell companies that have offered $40 a month or $59 a month but this is the first big national network (Verizon) to have an under $70 per month unlimited plan.
Unlimited Text and Unlimited Data included in this plan is quite unusual also.
Straight Talk Phone as a Modem
The Straight talk phones will not allow you to tether your computer to them (this is built into the software) and it is against the Straight Talk terms of service if you do find a way to hack into your phone and use it for computer access.
Where is Wal-mart Straight Talk Available?
Currently there are 1800 Walmarts across the United States that have the phone for sale and you can also purchase them at Straight Talk.com
Straight Talk Coverage
The reception will not be quite the same coverage you get with a Verizon contract phone. This will be the same coverage you get with a Verizon Prepaid phone. The difference is in some areas with the Verizon contract phones you will roam to other companies networks. In some areas you will be able to notice the coverage difference between a contract Verizon phone and a Walmart Straight Talk phone. In other areas you will not notice a difference.
