Am I missing something? It seems that Net10 and Straight Talk are offering the exact same service with their SIM only plans, but the Net10 is $5 more. Sure sales tax on Straight Talk and no tax and discounts when you get Net10 from calling mart it probably all evens out, but do you get anything for the extra $5?
Is it actually the same service as in will a T-Mobile SIM actually get T-Mobile 3G on a T-Mobile phone with Net10?
I ordered a straight talk Sim, but now am thinking that net 10 will be better for me since my local sales tax is really high and I prefer to avoid walmart.. Wondering if I can just activate this Sim on net 10 instead, since i'm pretty sure the card is the same.. Anyone know?
And yes if you buy a Net10 Tmo SIM you will get Tmo 3G/4G speeds on a Tmo phone that supports Tmo HSPA+ bands.
And so far straight talk users have to be paranoid about their data consumption on a daily basis. Net10 users don't have to worry about it. That's worth the extra $5 if you ask me. Smarter move too. Just because straight talk is cheaper doesn't mean its better in any way.

It is true both have had the Androids running on Sprint service for many months, but no one has reported on excessive data useage (so the rules for Sprint are still a complete unknown).

I am commenting on your above statement. This may not be true. A t-mobile SIM card could act very differently than a Net10 SIM card using t-mobile network. I got sucked into it (unlimited talk, text, and web and bring your phone offer and now I am regretting). They gave me Net10 SIM card which is on AT&T network. I am using nokia lumia 800 which is a windows phone. I can't download any apps from marketplace even though my GPS and internet explorer work. Twitter wont update, facebook chat wont work. All it says is I don't have a data connection/wifi. So, I am not sure what is going on? Just to check if something was wrong with my phone, I used pure t-mobile SIM which I borrowed from microsoft store, all the services worked even though it was only using EDGE.
The NT "Web Exclusive" price is $45 with auto-refill.
Can anyone confirm that N10 doesn't charge you taxes on their $45 plan like ST does?
