Unlimited... REALLY? | Straight Talk Wireless review from Stone Mountain, Georgia

I have no problem with ST wireless... My only complaint is that they false advertise it, I have been using my Galaxy Proclaim for around a year now and have had no issues,(other than the tech support, which is always been resolved by calling the managers 800 number) I just wish they would say you can use unlimited minutes & unlimited texts, & are limited to 2 Gigabytes od data or whatever it is... I will be getting the iPhone 4 on ST and hope that I will continue to be pleased with them. At least they call (or are suppose to) when you use to much data, kinda like a warning call. And for all you people out there that say "I got shut off when I checked my email!" That's just BS! Why do you think it's so cheap? They have to keep there costs down, and when you download a video from the internet or tether or whatever it costs them money... So don't blame them if you did it to yourself. (My options could change in the future when and if I ever experience the issues that you all are having but right now I'm fine with them) I check my Facebook, Twitter, Do a few pictures and check instagram check my email, and YES even watch a quick (under 5 min) video on Youtube, I can run up about 5000 texts in the summer and and several thousand minutes monthly... I have know complaints.

Straight talk is a joke | Straight Talk Wireless review

DO NOT BOTHER WITH STRAIGHT TALK! The "unlimited data" is ok if u like ur data runnning at practially dial up speeds... if I can get indefinatly throttled any1 can, I got a lg optimus I use it for web browsing,a liitle youtube that about it no streamiing music and they refuse to change it after 2 months so if u want an smart phone that runs at old dumb phone speeds go for it I wudnt waste my money again 20 min get thru 5 min tube video... sweet deal... not really. Now I need to get another phone and contact somewhere else when I can afford it and there's limited options where I live wish I had never wasted my money there a rip off

I bought a phone at wal mart and the unlimited phone text and internet card for the first 2-3 weeks it worked fine. Then the phone started to act funny. I couldn't access the internet completely or the page would skip while reading it. So after about a week or more...

I just retired from the Federal Government where I was a buyer. I dealt with companies on a daily basis for 24 years. I ran across some rather odd companies, to say the least. But I have never experienced anything like Straight Talk. They have undoubtedly the absolute...

I cleaned the office and discarded the two $30 cards. I have done much better than straight talk with my current carrier.

Thank you Straight Talk for getting me to look for a better plan.

Savings $40 per month on two phones for 3 years. Thanks again.

Replacement *** | Straight Talk Wireless review from Atlanta, Georgia

I ordered a new phone which despite being listed as appropriate for my zip code got very poor reception. It took 3 separate conversations to get customer service to agree to replace the phone.Then began a series of conflicting and contradictory information given by a slew of "supervisors" and "managers." In total I've talked to 10 of these individuals, the majority of whom stuck to a script, regardless of any questions I posed. The non-working phone was received in their warehouse on March 13. Due to a series of screw ups no one can explain the replacement phone wasn't released for shipment until yesterday.I sent emails to Ms. Calderon and customerescalations@tracfone(not a typo)and got no response.Replacement phone is suppose to arrive tomorrow. I have been without cell service for nearly two weeks, not counting the week I spent trying to convince customer service that the phone didn't work in my neighborhood.Until this point, except for a few issues with the RESERVE, I'd been happy with Straight Talk. But if you order a new phone MAKE SURE it is tied to a carrier who provides very good coverage in your area.

Straight talk does NOT prorate when changing plans. You need the $45 plan for smart phones. If you already have the $30 plan, wait for the $30 anniversary or you will get charged more than $45 for the upcoming month. Worst case is having just paid the $30 for the...
