A few people have asked recently if there are Straight Talk touch screen phones available with the two ST plans that a lot of people are talking about right now.  At the moment, there are no Straight Talk touch screen phones available.  Previously, the Samsung Finesse r810c, which does have a touch screen, was in the lineup and could be purchased on the website.  But that phone was phased out even though it’s a fan favorite because the model was getting quite old.  Pretty soon, we saw the Nokia E71 and Nokia 6790 phones come into play and they were selling pretty well for a few months.  Now, however, those two smart phones are no longer being sold on the website.  So at the moment–to answer those few readers question–no, there are no Straight Talk touch screen phones available.  This could, and hopefully will, change. See all the current phones available at  A couple of the Samsung Straight Talk phones are very nice.  There are some affordable options and actually at least one phone available for free.

The Samsung Galaxy Precedent is available at a pretty low price and the lowest I’ve seen it yet.  It’s only $129 and it comes with the unlimited plan.  Learn more at the official site.  Another recent development is the ST simcards that allow you use third party phones like iPhone on the unlimited Straight Talk plan.
