Straight Talk for Families

Quick background: Straight Talk is a pay-as-you go prepaid wireless phone service that requires no long term contracts, no credit checks, no activation fees, no monthly bills and no age limits!  You can also bring your own phone to Straight Talk and just use their SIM card.

AT&T – AT&T has a family plan page for families that want to share voice, text and data, and one for families that just want to share voice.

Verizon – Here is the Verizon family plan page.  Verizon is not cheap, but they do have the ability to share a single data allowance across all devices if that is appealing.
