Straight Talk drops Verizon for AT&T

It has become apparent that Straight Talk has moved over all its phone models to the GSM network which is AT&T. The change has been very slow but you will be struggling to find any CDMA models in Walmart now. There are still a few CDMA models on Straight Talks website but it is clear they have been phased out. Suspicion arose when the Samsung R810C Finesse was dropped. There hasn't been any new CDMA models in over a year. So when we talk about Straight Talk's coverage now it is a totally different ball game. As the transition to the GSM takes place, as phones die and get replaced etc. We can no longer say that Straight Talk is on the best network in the country. As there is no stats public on how many customers are using GSM/CDMA phones we can only guess at this stage that it must be around 50/50.

Moved from a Samsung R451C on Verizon to a Nokia E71 Smartphone on ATT. Took the Nokia back the next day. Couldn't even make a call from my own living room with the ATT phone. Switched back to the Samsung 451 and life is good again. This is my second bad experience with ATT service.

When you call "straight Talk" you immediately take a trip to the Philippines ! You don't have any choice and you don't get to pack any luggage all of a sudden your'e there talking to some one who is never going to process information the same way we do here in the States ... here in America SO were never going to be on the same page in the same book, the same library, same city, same state or country . This is soo wrong on so many levels!! Now a new problem ! I have always been on auto pay. Every month they take my payment out and text me a "Thank You " this month they did not and now they have turned off my phone. Is this pathetic or what?

Trust me, straight talks face book page offers the best cell phone service ever....you simply submit a service trouble ticket and they contact you via email then can shift to instant chat and fix your problems LIVE! Do NOT call their service phone number or you will be connected to overseas tech who can NEVER help.

This is horrible news to people who can't get ATT network. Straight talk....get it together and give us Verizon please....No comparison to AT&T.

I have had a Straight talk phone since January of 2010. Service was great at first but in recent months I have noticed lack of reception and dropped calls in areas that were not a problem before. I also have the problem of getting texts and voicemail msgs late....like a day late. I am now trying to decide which company to switch to. I like having no contract but no service.....Definitely don't like that!

I left st for pageplus who run on verizon. While not unlimited you can put ANY verizon phone with them. With a small data pack I only pay 40 dollars a month.

The new Samsung Galaxy Precedent uses the Sprint System, now you really won't be able to talk, text, or send/get data. What will they think of next at Straight Talk. Used tin cans and strings.

Total bull there! Straight Talk needs to pick Verizon back up as the coverage with AT&T sucks....always has and ALWAYS WILL!

i switched from straight talk to tmobile and i love it u can get a flex plan and still get a top of the line cell or Rate plan either way its a good choice ...

Straight Talk needs to start adding more CDMA phones. We get no coverage with AT&T in our area but it is great with the Verizon carriers. If thet Eli ate Verizon with their Straight Talk phones, my husband and I and lots of people I know will no longer use Straight Talk.
