Straight Talk Deactivated Phone | Straight Talk Wireless review from Ramsey, Illinois

Unlimited should mean exactly what it says "UNLIMITED". His phone was deactivated for overuse of data. It cannot be reactivated even with a new SIM card, so we are left with a two-month-old $250 phone that can be thrown in the trash. I read another review where the customer's internet usage was cut off, but he could still use the phone. Fine, when you reach the UNLIMITED amount, cut off the internet service for the rest of the month, but don't render the phone PERMANENTLY useless. That is ridiculous and I am PISSED. I would not recommend Straight Talk.

Straight Talk phones/service are terrible | Straight Talk Wireless review from Portland, Oregon

Took 36 minutes to pay for a new month. After the first month, the line across the top of the phone that tells how many days are left ceased working - it always says I have zero. Took almost two hours to find out no one knew how to fix that. Got phone beginning of September of 2011. 7 November I wake up to no screen. Can't get an email to the company. Refuse to call, because the outsourcers, while unfailingly polite, are scripted and can't do anything off script, nor can they get anyone who CAN help. Would love to be contacted with a resolution. The lady at WalMart was very nice, but their policy is 15 days to return the phone, and she didn't know how to reach the company except on the web site.

Following up - Sent email beginning of December to see if they could help me. I had spent 75 minutes holding to refill my minutes.

They emailed and said I should expect to hold a couple of minutes. They misspelled my name even with it right in front of them. They offered to send post paid sticker so I could send it back and they would fix or replace it. Unfortunately, I can't live for two weeks without a phone.

They tried to call me, but my phone was suspended because I HAD NO MINUTES. Yes, after I held for 75 minutes and gave up. So they called my emergency contact, and seemed baffled that I did not answer the phone. When I DO get a rep, they are scripted and cannot do ANYTHING but take my money.

Tonight I sent another email, requesting compensation. We will see how ethical they are.

I did also let them know that all of this negative publicity isn't good for them. Sigh.

I have the same issue. I purchased the wrong card that cost me 50.00.

Walmart info ed me that all phone cards sales are final.

I have called back and forth and did not get anywhere. I basically donated 50.00.

Straight talks horrible...read this.. | Straight Talk Wireless review from Salem, Oregon

So I called straight talk about a week ago wanting to change my plan from there $45 unlimited plan to there $30 1000 minute plan. I'm set up on there auto refill system and have been a straight talk customer for about 8 months. Up until now I can say I used to be pretty happy with there service, all the way up until I actually have to deal with them. When I talked to the lady on the phone, she spoke horrible English... It was so hard to understand her. She asked me to repeat things multiple times and kept saying one more minute while my system is figuring it out at least 7 or 8 times. I proceeded to ask her again, I just want to make sure that the $30 plan will not start until the end of the 30 days of service I had already paid for this month. She said it wouldn't, that the $30 would come out on September 9. Well last night I checked my account...they charged me the same day I talked to them for another months worth of service even though I still 2 weeks left on my contract. Last night to get this all straightened out....I called the customer service center to talk to them about refunded my account for the $30 because like I said I called to change my service future plan not to be charged that day...I honestly don't even think they know what there doing or how to do there job. So last night was awful. I got disconnected 3 times, I was on the phone with 3 different reps. I asked multiple times to speak to a supervisor. I repeated this story over and over again with each rep too. Finally the last lady I talked to said she was going to transfer me to the refund department supervisor (even though at the beginning of the conversation she said there was no way of refunding me). I was on hold for an hour, nooooo one ever picked up. Today I called my bank and processed a claim against them. I am getting a refund through my bank and my bank will investigate straight talk. I did however have to re contact them today in order to stop the auto refill from coming out of my account. Once again I got disconnected twice. So I had to wait on hold about 30 minutes. I finally talk to someone, got them to process "the cancellation of my auto refill". At the end of the conversation I asked her...where are you guys located out of? She said the Philippine's. So for all of the complaints I read that said they don't speak good English and you cant understand them(including mine)....that's why. And the last question I asked was how late is your refund department open? she said 11:45 central....so remember how I said I was on hold for an hour to speak to a supervisor in the refund department...THEY TRASFERRED ME THERE after hours...that's why no one picked up. How incredibly rude, and a huge waste of m time... By far there the most awful company I have ever had to deal with. Don't start service with them. You will regret it.

I have exactly the same experience as hers.When i changed my plan from unlimited to 30$, i i didnt get a service for days..the same horroble experience that i put on hold for hours and transfered from one person to another, asking the same story everytime you are transfered to another person. I also requested if I can talk to the manager because I aont have extra line to use, am just using a friends cel..but the lady just kept me on hold andd tried to fix it..a hit and miss type of fixing!!!...up to this day, i dont have yet a service! straighttalk sucks..yes they say you pay less for the service..but they forgot to say..you pay for stress fone!!

I got tired of paying though the nose and switched to straight talk. DON'T DO IT!

Customer service is almost non existent. Problems from the begining. If you need help, good luck. You will be on hold for 45 minutes to ?

I have waited as long as 90 minutes.

Shop around for better deals, but straight talk is not it. Leaving them is even MORE frustrating.
