Straight Talk Gearing Up for Launch of New Handset Leasing Program

straight-talk-plus
TracFone Wireless is currently working on a handset lease-to-own program to be launched under its Straight Talk brand. Launching as Straight Talk Plus, the program will enable eligible customers to make monthly installment payments for the smartphone of their choice. The program is said to be rolling out in Walmart stores throughout the US.

A number of people have noticed that a new signage has been put up in several Walmart locations indicating that the Straight Talk Plus program is "coming soon". According to representatives, the program is expected to launch in June or July. Unfortunately, several stores in Arizona and Kansas are experiencing system glitches, which could delay the launch of the new leasing program.

To further prove the existence of this new program, Straight Talk's website has been redesigned in line with its nearing launch.On the website, you'll get to see different smartphone models available under the Straight Talk Plus program. One device you can purchase is the Samsung Galaxy S7, which will be available for a 24-month installment plan of $30.12 with an unlimited service plan. You may choose from the different unlimited plans offered by Straight Talk such as:

  • $45 Plan - includes unlimited nationwide minutes, unlimited nationwide texts & picture messages, unlimited data at speeds with first 5GB at high speed
  • $55 Plan - includes unlimited nationwide minutes, unlimited nationwide texts & picture messages, unlimited data at speeds with first 10GB at high speed.
  • $60 Plan - includes unlimited nationwide minutes and international calling to over 1,000 destinations, unlimited nationwide texts & picture messages, unlimited data at speeds with first 5GB at high speed.

If you are interested in getting a new smartphone, you would have to submit to a credit check beforehand. Representatives say that Straight Talk Plus includes handset protection and no longer charges an activation fee. You would have to purchase both the smartphone and the service through Walmart and then apply for the Straight Talk Plus payment option with a Walmart associate.

  1. I want price cuts, not leasing.

    And if I can't have 'em, they can keep their flagships.

    What's that?

    You're saying customers' refusal to buy overpriced phones has forced retailers to cut prices anyway?

    Well yeah, that's why everyone who buys a flagship is an economically illiterate dolt.

    After all, they only charge what consumers will let them get away with.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have a date with my $50 Idol 3.

    Luckily for me, I have $670 worth of F-U money that flagship groupies don't.

    Once I add it to the dosh I DIDN'T spend on postpaid/Tracfone plans, maybe I'll have enough to go for a good ol' fashioned money swim.

    Have fun with you $720 toys, guys.

    At least until a new one comes out next year.

    Gotta buy 'em all, am I right?
