Since purchase of Samsung Galaxy "Precedent" android, I get a gray "lock" icon with the words, "Press Power Key at TOP to unlock." This comes back after about 5 seconds, and is annoying as ***. My friend bought the same phone on my recommendation, and now has a...

I truly understands fully what everyone is saying. My phone number has been stolen not once but twice within a two month span.

When I talk to an rep. they give me the run around. Both men were arguing with me to say that I had transferred my number to another phone. Okay !!!!!!

If that was the case, why would I waste my time being on the phone with you, at this point, over 2 hours. COME ON NOW LETS GET REAL ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!! Then I have one to tell me the reason my phone was off because I needed to activate it. WOW!!!!!!!

When I asked was there any program in place to keep this from happening, he say yes your security question.

WELL I'M HERE TO TELL YOU THE SECURITY QUESTION DOESN'T MEAN A THING. THEY CAN STEAL YOUR NUMBER.I work too hard for my money and I have to have an active number due to sick and family.

IF WE ALL GET TOGETHER WITH THESE COMPLAINTS, MAYBE THEY WILL FIX THIS ISSUE. :( :( :( :(

This has happened to me, my father-n-law, my uncle, and a few of my friends.. Just out of the blue (in the middle of service), changing phones, or activating a new sims card, Straight talk takes our numbers away..? They ask if we wanna keep our same number and tell...

Strraight Talk Lied and still havent sent my package!!!!!!! | Straight Talk Wireless review from Washington, District Of Columbia

Hi my name is David Gilbert, and i am sorry i have to bother you all with my problem. I recently switched over to straight talk from another company. I am a disabled veteran, and i am on a fixed income. I ordered a phone off of straight talk website and the first day i had it it froze. I was told it would take a couple days to get a new one which turned into 2 weeks. I couldnt wait two weeks so i just bought another phone which was from t mobile. I then ordered a t mobile compatible sim card from the straight talk website so i could use my new phone. I paid the overnight fee of $14.95 to get my sim card right away. I ordered it at 12:47 am on may 9 2012. My total was $32.02 with the sim card and the overnite shipping fee. My order number is 4666866 and my email address is davidwayne1976@yahoo.com. I still dont know where my package is. I called straight talk customer service for 2 days now and have gotten hung up on and told 10 different stories. I have never been treated so rude and disrespectful in my whole life. I honestly think i was treated bettter overseas. They also disrespected my fiance. I was also told that my payment was being reviewed when my card has already been charged and taken off my card. I dont believe i should be treated this way. Here it is 2 days later and my package is still at your warehouse and noone knows why. My phone number is 234 201 4825. Hope fully someone who cares about their company will give me a call ASAP. Thank you!!!!

Straight talk is bad to buy from | Straight Talk Wireless review from Overland Park, Kansas

April 23 at 12:07 pm i ordered a 45$ "unlimted" service plan online . The ad said " get free overnight shipping and a free phone . Order before 3pm for overnight shipping .The phone got here April 25 at 2 pm . Not overnight , but worse it can not be activated because it has no SIM card .When i called customer service they were rude to me , could barely speak english and i was told if i return the phone , im out 47.97 $. no refunds ! What a scam .Because i used the words "*** SIM card " one person said i was abusive and hung up on me ! They are very bad to customers who have done no wrong . Dont be taken like i was . I am 60 and disabled so i do not have money to give to scams .

Totally agree with you. I bought three phones and all were duds.

I foortunately was able to exchange them. The last phine i bought was the samsung galaxy. It has worked fine for the first 6 months but now heats ralidly (I wonder why%/#!@=#.LoL). It also wont hold a charge and freezes up frequently.

I also have to turn the phophone off to get a decent charge. It is clear that while the convenience of going the prepaid route is a great deal the quality of the phones are clearly defective. With these stories being so prevalent and frequent it is obvious that Walmart has concocted a deal with these phone makers to purchase items that are marked irregular at best. I strongly believe Walmart should be investigated for this issue and should be made(you would think that this monopulous giant would do so voluntarily and try to look caring to its millions of customers who allow it to thrive, while they treat their own employees horribly * rant for another time) Its as if they know the odds of these poorly engineered phones have a short lived capacity.

Im in favor of a lawsuit against this ungrateful monopoly. "DON'T TREAD ON ME!"
