I have the Straight Talk TracFone Samsung Galaxy SII, and I cannot recommend it.
The features it has are not the same as those you'll find advertised for SIIs being carried by the other carriers.
Numerous features have been disabled, such as near field communication (NFC, Google Wallet-type functions), the ability to tether, Adobe Flash, and, most importantly, I was told by TracFone that there will not be any OS upgrades. You're (we're stuck on Gingerbread 2.3.6).
Finally, after 6 weeks the phone has developed data connection issues, and I have gotten no support from Straight Talk.
Bottom line: I regret buying this phone, and I regret being on Straight Talk.
