I have an unopened Straight Talk kit in front of me. It will purportedly lower my monthly cost from $80 to $50.

My AT&T contract is over. My iPhone 4S is a free-agent.

Can someone please confirm that under Straight Talk (or most any cheaper pre-paid plain) I won't get the following features:
-- MMS (texting with photos, videos)
-- Visual Voice Mail


What other features will I not have?

Mms should work with the right apn like tac said, visual voicemail won't work, it simply will dial you phone number and you can input you code and check your voicemail. Very small change

Btw its a great way to save money, I am rocking a 4s, decided to wait till the 6 is released :)

No visual voicemail on ST, sorry!

As for MMS should work if you have the latest iPhone software and sim from ST
