    Switching to Straight talk

    Hey guys
    I'm getting married pretty soon and my fiance said that my $100 phone bill gotta go and switch to straight talk. Ok I agreed but I cant go back from the best phone ever Droid X to a crappy straight talk phone. Can someone please tell me what to do to use my Droid X for Straight Talk or if I can even do that.

    You should be able to buy a straight talk phone then reprogram your number to the droid x. Im not sure if it works that way or not. You will need to get a straight talk phone because straight talk doesn't include data and you must have a data package with a smartphone. Buying a straight talk phone will circumvent this requirement. Just make sure you have a way to disable mobile data on your x. Like I said I have no clue if this works or not this is just a theory.

    I can understand hard times and rolling pennies for gas money, but would putting you and your fiancee on vzw family plan be an option. Or maybe dropping down to a different plan. If not sorry to hear you have to go a different route for now. Maybe someone can answer your questions for you. Best of luck.

    Wow she's pulling that BEFORE the wedding? What's she gonna say once she's got you locked in?

    :teasing:

    Yeah the whole smartphone thing is very expensive. Good luck with your attempted switch. And you have a good woman if she's that worried about budgets. Good for you and Congrats

    Oh, the irony... my wife made me go from a flip phone (Moto W755) to a Smartphone. She was getting sick of me walking about with a phone, an iPod and a PDA on my belt.

    I love that woman

    Mind you, she's been putting up with me for nearly 25 years...

    To your point, though, how is your bill $100/month? Mine with two family members is $120. I would look for ways to bring down your bill - if you lower your minutes you should be able to get the monthly total down to maybe $70. If you're getting married you'll have to get used to talking less

    Have you thought about combining plans with her? That will give you a cost saving, and in-network minutes don't count

    Here's the good news: If she is as frugal as she evidently expects you to be, she sounds like a keeper. Best o' luck to you both.

    Here's my advice: Sell the Mustang, keep the Droid

    Man, I hope she's not planning on using all the money saved to go buy a $300 purse! I think the car is a bit much to ask for.

    Without knowing all the details, all I can say is if you can afford all your expenses on your own and so can she with hers; why is it that you can't afford the same when your resources are pooled? Maybe she doesn't like feeling like She is paying for your 100/month plan when she has a much cheaper one, but really she isn't. A family plan is also an option, me and my girlfriend have one and it saved us both money by splitting the bill?
