As of now, users can choose Straight Talk unlimited international plan to make calls to Mexico, Canada, India and other selected destinations. However, before signing up, users can make sure that wanted number or destination is covered by this unlimited international service.
Straight Talk unlimited international plan is available for $60 and includes dialing landline and mobile numbers. It also includes all the goodies from $45 unlimited plan in addition to unlimited international calling for extra $15 per month. This service is great for users who have families in these certain destinations outside of the USA because they pay monthly flat rate and don’t depend on inconsistent rate calling cards. The service is exclusive only to Straight Talk website.
Besides introducing $60 international plan, Straight Talk is bringing lately attractive changes to its service. They allowed users to bring their own phone, purchase just a SIM card from them and use it with $45 unlimited plan. Also, they were preparing to release one of the higher-end phones, LG Optimus 2X but after giving up on it quietly, they released LG Optimus Black.
It’s needles to say that healthy competition between prepaid, flat-rate carriers is good for users and hopefully they will continue to come up with even more useful and more affordable plans. The one that relates to Straight talk’s $60 offer is Cricket’s also interesting international calling options or the one that does not relate but offers affordability to those that don’t need data on phones is the latest one from Boost Mobile, promotional one, with $30 for unlimited talk and text after 18 on-time payments.
