    Question TotalWireless vs StraightTalk

    So why is StraightTalk $5 cheaper than TotalWireless for the same plan? Plus with StraightTalk you can pick the network you want to use by picking which SIM to buy...



    So what is the difference? Is there any?

    Their both Trac Phone brands. No real difference except the diffent Trac Phone brands all have different offerings. They all offer customer NO service.

    TotalWireless vs StraightTalk

    Total Wireless is strictly on the Verizon network. Straight Talk carries service on all four national carriers.

    Total Wireless also has a a couple different lower priced plans. Their $25 plan doesn’t have any data but unlimited talk & text; Straight Talk currently has no such plan. Total Wireless’s $35 plan has more high speed data than Straight Talk’s $35 plan.

    Aside from their own websites, Total Wireless refill can be purchase through many different dealers while Straight Talk is only through Walmart.

    It wasn't always like that, total wireless $35 plan, 5 gigs on Verizon was a very solid deal for a long time.

    Total Wireless has worked well for me, for over a year now. $34 a month - 5gb - it's all I need.

    Or there's the eBay Net10 deal:

    NET10 Annual Plan (UT&T&D, 5GB/30 days LTE) @ $199.99 + Applicable Sales Tax
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/283471231068

    That works out to $16.67/30 days using your choice of the Vzw, AT&T, or T-Mobile networks.

    ---EDIT---
    It looks like the price for that went back up to $239.99, which would make it $20/30 days. But even that's still not too bad.
