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...

Issue fixed by lady named Jay Ferson (employee ID 50908). Her number was 800-876-5753. She had me turn off my phone and then on and enter *22890 so that my phone could get tower signal. She asked for my phone and serial number. She was great. However I was stressed...

Avoid StraightTalk | Straight Talk Wireless review from Los Angeles, California

Save self from this menace of a company. Have 'em and dropping them, again. yes I said again, I must suffer from *** - I had ST for a couple of months a while back, purchased their android phone (my 1st smartphone) had questions and the non-english speaking customer service reps had virtually no helpful responses in hard to comprehend broken english. My calls were often dropped and when redialing the last call, was unable to dial out oddly I did have service. Other times "No service" did happen often and found if I removed battery it reset phone service BUT doing this 7-10 times a day is NUTS. Poor reception both outgoing (they cant really hear you) and incoming. I decided to reestablish my home landline then, realizing I needed cell for travel I restarted my straighttalk service. *** move on my part! Can't call out OFTEN and same old problems persist. That's it I am done, anyone want to buy my andrioid (Walmart) Straighttalk phone?

They charged my card twice and every time I call to get a refund they put me on hold for 30 minutes and hang up.

Then one person answered the phone told me they were getting me my refund but but me back on hold for a hour
