Wal-Mart Cell Phone Plans: Another No-Contract Option
Wal-Mart is joining the other big-box stores that offer cell phone plans. Wal-Mart began testing the plans in around 200 stores in the US earlier this year, and is now trying to grab market share from other low-cost no-contract mobile providers such as Virgin Mobile (CDMA in the US and Canada) and Leap. The plans, marketed under the name Straight Talk, are ofered at $30 per month for 1000 minutes and 1000 text messages, and $45 per month for unlimited nationwide airtime and text messages.
Straight Talk, which is a partnership with TracFone, a unit of America Movil(AMX Quote), will offer two plans for either $30 or $45 a month and will be available at more than 3,200 Wal-Mart locations starting on Oct. 18.
