If you didn’t have enough reason to save over $800 a month, Verizon announces the end to 1 year contracts. This means locking yourself down for 2 years of service. If you aren’t already saving big money on Straight Talk and are now thinking about it, consider this an excellent excuse to switch over to the best prepaid service and start saving.

Sure phone selection is not the best at this time and the plan currently lacks a true smart phone but if you want to save some serious cash then a few sacrifices are in order. Having said that, I would look for a Straight Talk android model sometime this year as we think they will want to match the likes of Cricket and Virgin mobile. In the meantime pick up one of the Straight Talk free phone deals until those Androids come out.

Are you a Verizon customer thinking of making the switch? Let us know about it in the comments.
