In my opinion yes. If you can get in on the unlimited do it. I have unlimited on most of my lines. It is worth it to me.
I have several friends and family that use straight talk. And to put it nicely their service is DOO DOO. They can rarely hear good, lots of times i can barely hear them. Will get disconnected, kr they cant even call. Sometimes itle be hours b4 the get my txts.
I know they use vzw towers bht its still garbage. And as bad as their phone service is their customer service is far worse( so they tell me). I know its cheaper, but the reality is you get what you pay for. For me with a big family i actually come out better being on vzw with family plan.
But i constantly beg them to go to big red or another carrier.
My youngest sister is 16 and just started driving. She has straight talk and i feer if she ever really needed to use her phone she wouldnt be able to. If you dont (need) a phone i guess straight talk is fine. But if your like me and need a phone with data for work n play. I would shed a lil extra $ and have comfort of a phone that works how and when its suposed to.
fear my blade!
