    Want TRUE UNLMITED? Use Net10 Unlimited then. Cap is 50,000 minutes a month!

    There are 43200 minutes in a month. They give 50,000 minutes/units because of the assumption you will be using the units for different reasons.

    But c'mon. It's enough to be own the phone 24/7 for a month and still not run out. If that's not unlimited. I don't know what is.

    Straight Talk used to post 43200 minutes a month. Idk if it's still true but probably is.

    I think if anyone has trouble with anyone else's "unlimited" plan, these are the plans to use.

    You will receive a phone call from ST if you use too much data in a short time period or for the Month. They know that just following their T&C applies a "limiting cap" to your data useage. The slow operation systems of Net10 phones provides an additional limit of useage.

    There are all kinds of ways to restrict "unlimited" data. 1)Allow only wap browsers. Not full html. 2) Allow only phones with slow sub 3G standards (EDGE/1xrtt/iden). 3)Have hidden caps. 4) Have throttling. 5)Charge for overages. 6)Kick people off.

    Unlimited data never is. I'm referring to the Talk portion. I don't expect unlimited evdo/3G for Net10/ST. Even if it is truly unlimited. 1xrtt/edge on a wap browser with unlimited kind of royally sucks.

    EVERYTHING that has the Trac name on it has small print reminding you that you are agreeing to abide by their T&C.
