I've been on Straight Talk for several months with my iPhone. No problems at all.
The biggest issue with prepaid carriers is that you are kind of on your own. You can't call them about every single little issue you may have, like you could Verizon or AT&T. So, I would hesitate a bit to suggest Straight Talk to older folks who need a brick and mortar store when they can't figure something out with their phone.
That said, I never had problems with Straight Talk CS. I think its the best deal around... You get AT&T or T-Mobile unlimited service for $45 flat (albeit no roaming).

I have been on Straight Talk for a couple months with my iPhone. No issues here.
I think you need to jailbreak iPhone to get SMS to work properly though (just a heads up).

|angelrose2562||I have Straight Talk and use the internet quite a bit on my phone. I watch a few videos, etc..but I don't stream movies or anything. But a lot of page viewing, etc...A LOT. I have never been throttled or had any of the dreaded warning messages sent my way. I have been using ST for 2 years in February, and I love love love it. It is the best prepaid out there IMO.|

I've been using Straight Talk on a Galaxy Nexus since this summer without issue. I was very careful the first month not to go over the 'invisible cap' a lot of users complain about. Since then I've used it like a normal phone, using cellular data whenever, and wifi when I can. No issues so far.
I'm currently 1/3 of the way through my month, am at 1.7 GB of data, max 400 on one day. Tmobile SIM.
Other than the crummy inability to set up google voicemail, it's just like Tmobile.

Thoughts on Straight Talk Wireless?
Hello fellow SDers,
I know many of you guys are fans of prepaid wireless plans and I'm looking to jump ship to a prepaid plan as well. I prefer GSM for the flexibility so I can get a Nexus 4.
The only compelling GSM plan with data seems to be Straight Talk Wireless, but I see a lot of complaints on various sites. Some of these people sound like they have unreasonable expectations, but some sound like they have legitimate complaints. I know most of these sites suffer from a selection bias toward the disgruntled folks, so I'd like to hear what your opinion is of Straight Talk.
