Straight Talk Wireless - Criminals are hacking into straight talk

Criminals are hacking into straight talk customer cell phone cell and deactivating there accounts and using the customer numbers to avoid paying their bills and to avoid being traced by the authorities.When the customers call straight talk to see what is wrong with their phones, they are told that they called in and had their number transferred to their other phones although they only one phone.

Straight talk encryption isnt secure and is being hacked. Once this occur, the customer have to wait a minimal of 1 week to get their number back and to receive a new sim card. So be careful.

I was a victim of this crime myself.Striaght doesnt seem very interested in solving this issue.

How come someone keeps using my data. When I check the history on my browser (even when my phone was shut off) there were web sites I have never or never will search for on the browser history. This and the fact that I can go into my history to find a page I had searched already and my history is gone. Anyone else having these problems?

Same thing happened to me. Phone just stopped working. Called straight talk (straight ***) and they said I requested to have the number transferred. WTF! The *** I did. Now I have to wait 3-5 days for a new SIM card and pray that I get my old number back which I use for a business. Will be switching providers ASAP.
