    Straight Talk

    I just saw a commercial for "Straight Talk", that cell phone service u can get at walmart, that's like 45 bucks a month for unlimited calls/texts/data. Has anyone ever tried tethering one to a computer? Theoretically, you would have unlimited data. Does it work?

    Link?

    But I wonder if anyone has tried the Straight Talk. Cuz if it worked out well, it'd be worth it, for sure. Unlimited data for that cheap is impressive, let alone unlimited phone service

    I remember seeing this at CES this year and it caught my attention for a simple CarPC use with no contract

    I have not heard much about the whole Straight Talk thing but it seems like it would be simple

    I just called them. They don't have coverage in my area (big surprise there, lol, I live in Wyoming).

    Wow, that makes it a little difficult then. Did you call Straight talk you mean? or DataJack.

    Well I called, and the guy I talked to was an idiot. He'd never heard of it before
