Wal-Mart has publicly launched Straight Talk, a new no-contract wireless service that offers unlimited talking for just $45 per month.
Wal-Mart’s $45 monthly plan includes unlimited calling, texting, and data with the plan.
The retailer is working with TracFone, a company known for its prepaid devices, and the two companies first began testing their joint pilot program in 234 stores in 2008.
Not bad, but if it is anything like Tracfone, the web browsing capabilities will be extremely limited.
The problem with this is the limited selection of phones at quite high prices (for a prepaid service). Straight Talk is running on Verizon's network and Towers which has been voted the best network in the USA, and I must say that I've got far better reception on Straight Talk now than I had on my old Sprint contract. I really appreciate the savings, of course, but not having those awful and undecipherable bills has been a great stress-reducer.
Getting a phone of my choice without branding (including some nasty things like buttons you easily press and get rewarded by a pricey connection ) or other crippling. Additionally, most phones that are bundled with prepaid contracts are basic models, so such a bundle isn't a very attractive option, IMO. Around here there are tons of shady shops that will happily unlock any perpaid simlocked phone for a couple of euro's. Use any unlocked phone that is able to use the network of the provider of choice (99% of current phones are) and buy the SIM card.
Same around here, but it can still be legal to have your simlocked subscription phone unlocked in said shady shops. In addition to that, it can also be very very beneficial if you can change the IMEI number if you never want ot be traced. As some have asked here, Straight Talk uses the Verizon calling network that in turn provides excellent calling coverage and areas.

It's nationwide too so I don't need roaming nor do I have to pay any extra for long distance. I believe this means that you can use it with any carrier, but that still may not be the case with a prepaid carrier. With a prepaid contract, I have two options:Use any unlocked phone that is able to use the network of the provider of choice (99% of current phones are) and buy the SIM card. Best thing of all is that you don't breach any contract whatsover, since you didn't sign any contract in the first place. I used to drop calls all the time with my previous major carrier and now, I have yet to miss one. The research also reported the findings of the Institute of Transportation Engineers as they found in their research, Environmental, Driver, and Vehicle Risk Analysis for Freeway Work Zone Crashes a 26% increase in work zone crashes can be expected in work zones in Florida. Unique to the instruction, was the use by all officers of their new laser guns and radar guns. Several law enforcementi?? agencies will be operating old and new radar and laser systems against new introductions from the radar detection industry. Many state legislatures are considering state-wide bans on cell phone use while driving while others have restricted texting while driving upon different age groups.A  SML is under contract with Texas State University as a Traffic Safety Consultant assisting the University with various grants targeting the compliance with cell phone restrictions within the state of Texas. Several law enforcement agencies will be operating old and new radar and laser systems against new introductions from the radar detection industry. The case involved the i??Ohio State Police and the court had not given judicial notice for the use of laser guns in that jurisdiction.
SML has been asked to bid on a program that involves sponsorship of school zones by private businesses. Students i??were required to i??estimate the speed and distance of fifty estimations each at the local airport with help from the Emporia Police Department. The case involved the Ohio State Police and the court had not given judicial notice for the use of laser guns in that jurisdiction. It sits on the ETATS committee that in part sets performance specifications for the operation of radar and laser systems.


The Kustom Signals, Inc LaserCam IIA® and the Laser Technology Incorporated, LTI, accomplish such tasks. Students were required to estimate the speed and distance of fifty estimations each at the local airport with help from the Emporia Police Department. The first publicationa€™s research titled, i??Speed Enforcement Equipment Testing looked at laser guns shot through the windshield and compared their range to the same laser shot outside the vehicle.
The Texas Legislature passed in their House Bill 1365, amended the Texas Transportation Code A§545.353(j), Section 25 and told authorities no environmental speed limits were to be allowed in Texas. SML was contracted to teach the NHTSA compliant Master Radar Laser Instructor course to military police of the i??93D Military Policei?? Battalion at the installation. Four categories i??are assessed for a passing score of 360 or 90% of the total of 400 potential points. Graduates of the course are Certified to teach Operators and Master Instructors using the Law Enforcement Services LLC curriculum or those approved by SML. A new California law prohibits radar and laser equipment manufacturers from submitting bids on re-certification of their equipment. The first publicationa€™s research titled, Speed Enforcement Equipment Testing looked at laser guns shot through the windshield and compared their range to the same laser shot outside the vehicle.

Many people say Sprint has limited coverage and that which they do have (both pcs & boost mobile) sucks! After 24 months, you can request an unlock code from the provider for free, if you don't want to wait that long, you have to pay 100 Euro (140 USD) for the unlock code.
If you can connect to a network with a completely random IMEI number, that would be very awesome!
I was even able to carry over my phone number, but not as my contacts - Straight Talk does not allow you to carry over contacts at this point. Of special interest this year will be the evaluation of the new GPS system combo unit introduced by Escort Inc. The research also reported the findings of the Institute of Transportation Engineers as they found in their research, Environmental, Driver, and Vehicle Risk Analysis for Freeway Work Zone Crashes a 26% increase in work zone crashes can be expected in work zones in Florida.A  SMLa€™s research also found in California, California Research Project No.
Among the sample only 3 vehicles were at or below the speed limit of the 992 assessed vehicles.A  The best performance came from Arkansas where 147 vehicles of the sample size of 996 vehicles were traveling at the posted 60 mph interstate work zone speed limit. Officers reviewed court cases where departments had not re-certified equipment, had no training, and did not follow the manufacturer specified set up procedures for radar and laser systems. Of special interest this year will be the evaluation of the new GPS system combo unit introduced by Escort Inc.A  The Escort iQ is a standard GPS system allowing drivers to mark dangerous locations such as school zones, work zones, or other locations presenting dangerous conditions.
The final day had to be postponed until 23 December when the attendees gave their ten i??minute presentation to the class. The court recognized SML as an expert witness and gave judicial notice to the use of laser in the jurisdiction. This has been done with Rest Areas being sponsored by forward thinking communities along interstates.
The final day had to be postponed until 23 December when the attendees gave their ten minute presentation to the class. Unique to the new LTI TruSpeedA® Sx binocular system is the easy interface with a smart phone that is already equipped to take still and video images.
Considerable research abounds from other state DOT and Federal authorities saying regardless of the posted speed limit, drivers drive the speed they feel safe and reasonable. Although we give out an evaluation i??sheet as part of our instruction, it is great to have students take the time and effort to write.
A considerable effort was made to have students establish a Valid Visual Tracking History consistent with federal protocol and NHTSA recommendations. Once the defendant heard that the Prosecutora€™s Office was presenting an expert witness, he asked the Court for a continuance of the trial. The four categories are class participation, presentation (graded by fellow students), field exercises, and final post instruction 100 question testing. A confirmation of the officers estimation is confirmed by the reading of the traffic radar or laser gun.
TCLOSE (Texas Commission on Law Officers Standards and Education) awards credit for attendance for such instruction using their number #2054.

Just keep in mind there ARE other companies offering similar deals with different phones so you are best served by comparison shopping these prepaid offers. Their incredibly well priced deal makes up for any minor issues - I'm saving more than $50 a month with the ST $45 unlimited use plan. 991438, a study of thirty-six California work zones produced an increase in injury and fatality crashes of 21.5%. In Arkansas the normal speed limit was 70 mph compared to Texas at 60 mph.A  The total sample size of all assessed vehicles was 4,413 vehicles. In some of these instances, the citations given were dismissed by several courts.A  A historical review was given as to the necessity of conducting daily tests for accuracy of both radar and laser guns citing Aguilera v. The iQ GPS features an Over Speed Alert notifying drivers if they are over the posted speed limit.A  The iQ also features preloaded locations of red light cameras nationally.
During the trial, SML noticed the Ohio State Police were mounting their radar antennas externally by the light bar. Individual participating schools will construct a budget for signs, radar displays, personnel, and painting of school zone boundaries. All new laser guns can record speed and distance of a target vehicle through the windshield. Environmental Speed Limits were established in metropolitan areas of Texas by those entities desiring to comply with the Federal Clean Air Act. Students were required to bring with them to class the Instruction Manual of the radar or laser system they were using including tuning forks in the case of radar guns. He had asked under Discovery, the certification of the radar, the certification of the tuning forks, who performed the re-certification of the equipment, how many tickets had the officer written with the radar gun and asked for a copy of the Instructora€™s Manual of the radar gun. Students were allowed to select the topic of their presentation The sponsoring department is allowed on free slot for each ten (10) students enrolled.
The individual department training coordinator will submit the hours, which are 24 hours, to TCLOSE. He had asked under Discovery, the certification of the radar, the certification of the tuning forks, who performed the re-certification of the equipment, how many tickets had the officer written with the radar gun and asked for a copy of the Instructora€™s Manual of the radar gun.A  The Instructora€™s Manuals of some radar guns contain proprietary data and may not be disseminated as is clearly stated on the opening pages of the Instruction Manual.
The individual department training coordinator will submit the hours, which are 24 hours, to TCLOSE.A  Reservations for the course are handled by SML with its phone number appearing the flyer. I know other prepaid companies offer a similair type of deal, but the benefits with Straight Talk just seemed to be the right fit for me. Further, the Ohio Department of Transportation in their report: Work Zone Process In Terms of New Federal Work Zone Regulation-Historical Analysis, reported a 33% increase in accidents in thirteen measured work zones in a before work zone designation and after placement of a work zone designation at the same location.
It is clear from this research and others that the closer the posted speed limit is to the actual speed of vehicles traveling, the higher the compliance rate.A  Considerable time was spent in consideration of placement of permanent or mobile mounted speed feedback displays in work zones to control speeding.
Florida, 1979 as a national benchmark case in the development of national standards for performance of both radar and laser speed assessment systems.
In Canada, this is done country-wide with lime green paint being affixed to curbs that delineate the begin and end points of school zones. A Kustom Pro Laser III was used to determine the speeds and distances of the target vehicles as the department had a model of the ProLaser III. Of specific interest is to ascertain the sales of radar and laser speed enforcement systems. It takes advantage of existing technology to accomplish the task of a€?evidence of speedinga€?. We further verified the accuracy of the speed readings comparing VASCAR (Vehicle Average Speed Computer And Recorder), radar and laser guns set in the a€?stop watcha€? modes.
They were also to bring with them to the class the re-certification documents of the radar guns and laser guns as is ask for in many radar and laser trials.i?? Students were required to conduct an 85th % study as part of the curriculum doing it manually.


A concentrated effort was made with officers in estimating speeds and distances of vehicles on Interstate 35. We further verified the accuracy of the speed readings comparing VASCAR (Vehicle Average Speed Computer And Recorder), radarA  and laser guns set in the a€?stop watcha€? modes. Among the sample only 3 vehicles were at or below the spei??ed limit of the 992 assessed vehicles. Hall and Lorenz as published in Road Management And Engineering, related a 33% in New Mexico interstate accidents among the same locations before and after work zone designation.
A thorough discussion was given into various state attempts to dissuade drivers from exceeding posted work zone speed limits including large fines and potential jail time for offenders. Increasingly, SML is receiving requests from varying governmental agencies regarding conducting Master Instructor Radar and Laser Instructor courses at their locations.
A Before and After study will be conducted at a selected elementary school, a middle school, and a high school in the district. An Emporia Police Department Charger was used in addition to a Lyon County Sheriffa€™s Department Ford Explorer for the field exercise. This year the emphasis was the use of laser guns that take pictures of infractions for court use for a€?evidence of speedinga€?.
A Before and After study will be conducted at a selected elementary school, a middle school, and a high school in the district.A  The Before study will look at the speed limit compliance with posted speed limits when the school zone is active. In many cases, they were on interstate highways with a posted speed limit of 75 mph and were posted at 60 mph. One of the students was identified to use the Kustom ProLaser III with Kustoma€™s LaserStat computer program to show the students how quickly such a study could be conducted without manually entering the figures. The classwork was consistent with NHTSA recommendations of 24 hours of classroom instruction for Master Radar Laser Instructor Certification. The field activity of estimations of speed and distance is essential in establishing a Valid Visual Tracking History substantiated by a radar or laser gun reading. An After study will look at the same school zones after posting a radar displays, increased signage, or improved painting in the school zone and the percentage of drivers adhering to the speed limit.A  Solicitations will be made to the community to fund those devices or strategies that are effective. Of the total runs, only three times did the speeds of the three devices show the same speed. These organizations thought merely posting the Environmental Speed Limits signs would mean compliance. The Military Police Battalion already has Kustom ProLaser III laser guns that can be used for such a study. One of the students operated the Kustom Laser Stat program with a Kustom ProLaser III attached.A  This was done to show students how they can conduct 85th% study using their existing equipment. SML expects radar and laser gun manufacturer representatives to be present as with previous years. In a report from the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A & M University,A  Summary Report 0-47045, the report lamented that a€?Double Finea€? law had little or no effect on drivera€™s speed in work zones. Each successful student was given both wall and billfold certificates entitling them to teach both Master Instructors and Operators of radar and laser based speed enforcement systems.
In the classroom setting, the importance of using the correct tuning fork that accompanied the radar gun model was demonstrated. According to USDOTa€™s Traffic Safety Facts, Speeding is the second leading cause of death and injuries on Texas and national highways. SML lookedi?? at some 2,933 vehicles several years ago, six months ago, and in early September 2013 using a Kustom ProLaser III police laser gun tied to a laptop computer using Kustoma€™s LaserStat program that automatically give us the 85th %, average speed of the sample, and compliance rate of the sample.
Kustoma€™s LaserStat program is facilitated by the addition of a cord between the laser gun and the laptop computer.

Other teaching engagements are scheduled for the remainder of 2013 with Fort Polk, LA and New Mexico departments.
Many departments find such teaching important as they must continually find officers who have attended the NHTSA compliant instruction. In response to this cancer possibility the Occupational Safety And Health Act (OSHA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the urging of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) found that, a€?In sum, the assessment found that even with continuous exposure, no measurements at the aperture of the antennas of all devices tested exceeded the acceptablei?? OSHA levels. Students were told to keep their completed speed and distance form for court use in the future. In response to this cancer possibility the Occupational Safety And Health Act (OSHA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the urging of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) found that, a€?In sum, the assessment found that even with continuous exposure, no measurements at the aperture of the antennas of all devices tested exceeded the acceptable OSHA levels. Students were required to make a fifteen (15) minute presentation that was graded by other class members as a requirement for graduation.
Further, tests were conducted by mounting radar units in patrol cars to see if microwave energy reflected off the windshield and thereby exposed the occupants of the vehicle. Such a controlled field test has not been conducted since 1998 as directed by the New Jersey Superior Court, Judge Reginald Stanton in the Counta€™s attempt to issue judicial notice for Court acceptance of laser speed readings. Considerable time and money was and is spent on posting the speed limits that no one obeyed. Utilization of visual aids was highly recommended during the fifteen (15) minute student presentations. There were no measurable amounts of microwave energy anywhere in the drivera€™s seat or the front passengera€™s seat.
All of the military police students passed the NHTSA recommended curriculum which consists of twenty-four (24) hours of classroom instruction. One officer showed the correct use of tuning forks on the MPH Ranger EZ attached to his motor as he begins and end each shift.
Florida actually tests equipment to a more stringent standard than to the federal standard of DOT HS 809 812(radar) and DOT HS 809 811 (laser). Most radar antennas, save motorcycle units, are not designed to be externally mounted and must constantly be modified to meet the purpose of accurate readings consistent with the Operatora€™s Manual of the specific radar system.
The State of New Mexico issues compliance with their standards and has issued approval to SML curriculum and the approval number of NM12-53C.
The Texas Commission of Law Officer Standards and Education, TCLOSE, issues its own approvals and has issued the number of #2054 for the SML course.
However, when we put a vehicle in front of them as they trailed the target vehicle by 500 feet, not one of the detectors alerted to laser.
Part of the instruction is having students estimate the speeds of fifty (50) vehicles and the distances of (50) vehicles. This is done with various laser guns operated by students and is critical to establish a Valid Visual Tracking History. Court cases abound demanding the prima facia evidence is the officera€™s estimation speed of a vehicle i.e.
Hall the court admonished the officer in making the traffic stop with probable cause based solely on the laser gun readi??ing.
Hall the court admonished the officer in making the traffic stop with probable cause based solely on the laser gun reading. Each officer is billed $350.00 for attending such training and SML regularly conducts such training at different parts of the United States annually. Students record 100 speeds of vehicles before any treatment and then record 100 after a large radar display is added to the same highway. In many cases, a laser gun tied to a computer is shown to students allowing for immediate results.
The most prestigious award is the TOP GUN Award presented to the highest score in a particular class. The TOP GUN Award during the Fort Worth Police Academy teaching was presented to Officer Deena Evans for her fine performance.
