I have a friend who currently uses a Sprint flip phone for voice only, his contract is up shortly and he's thinking of moving to a smartphone. My first bit of advice was not to go and sign a new contract or get a subsidized phone! So, I'd like to point him in the Straight Talk direction, on Android. I'm not sure how much he's willing to spend on a new phone or whether he should go ATT or Verizon. I'm sort of leaning towards ATT/GSM, seems to make more sense to me. So...sorry for the basic questions but I'm on Verizon so am not familiar with GSM Moto G is 3G only, I think he'd be OK with that (he's certainly not a tech guy) but don't want him to be left in the dust down the road (like he is now, lol). Moto X is more expensive but has 4G/LTE. He's not going to understand APN's and updating them. Should I suggest to him the G on ATT through Straight Talk, that seems the best to me. Any troubles anyone is having or had (again, he won't play the switching APN's and having no connection issues etc., has to stay simple). Is it just a matter of getting the US GSM Moto G and a SIM from Straight Talk? Any pointers or other ideas? He wants to go the smartphone route, but doesn't have the patience to tinker.
