    Hi, everyone!

    I want to buy a S3 but I really cant take the "big 4"'s prices. I've been doing my research the whole day. The only way I came up right now is to buy an unlocked phone on ebay, and then buy a straighttalk sim card. (Is this really gonna work though? straighttalk+unlocked phone from ebay?)

    This will give me:
    1. unlimited everything(data actually has a 2gb cap)

    I need to pay:
    1. 45$/month plan
    2. 15$ SIM card
    3. 600$ for the phone.

    If I choose to get one for the "big 4" instead. Then I need to pay at least 35$ more each month and I would get less data. 2-year-contract adds up to 840$ more. But I do get the phone for a cheaper price(200$).

    Should I go with straighttalk or "big 4"? And also is anyone successfully using an unlocked s3 with straighttalk?

    Hey bud, I'd go with the unlocked s3 and the pre paid services.
