I have been using straight talk for a little over two years now. I purchase a $45 unlimited card every month. I understand they have some sort of "data limit" which causes my internet to run extremely slow. This only happens the last three or four days of the month. the rest of the time my phone runs great for 3G coverage.

Three days before my service was supposed to end, the internet was horribly slow. I refilled it the day before my service expired, which was four days ago. My service is still extremely slow. it takes 4 or 5 minutes to load a webpage. I can't. Use my facebook or twitter apps. My servicee is so slow, it won't even load a song on Pandora.

And, to top it all off, two thirds of my text messages won't send.

So, basically, my phone is good for making calls and taking pictures.

Mine is exactly the same. What is happening?

Straight talk was sued for 40 million and lost ! For advertising unlimited data ! Seems to me they need to be sued again !!

Mine is doing the same.It sucks.

It's not the phone it's the service.Time to switch to another provider !

I just paid my bill Friday and I've barely used my internet and it's saying I've reached my data limit. I called and they told me the same thing.. honestly thinking of switching

For the last three months my data speed has only been decent for about a week and then it's so slow it won't load much the rest of the month. There is no way I'm using all my data. I just bought a service refill but this will be my last time with straight talk if it isn't better this month.
