I just got an email from Straight Talk, Wal-mart's prepaid cell service, advertising this product:
I'm kinda interested. $130 for the device itself and $10 a month for coverage. I dug around a little on Straight Talk's website and see that it uses Verizon's CDMA cell phone service, which is good for me, since my place is in a GMS dead zone. Biggest problem I saw is that it uses AC power, but it does have a 9 volt backup, which Straight Talk claims will last a week. If it'll last a week on a 9 volt battery, I'm wondering how long it would last plugged into a cheap 80 watt inverter and 12 volt battery.
What do you think? Anyone have one of these yet?
