Cant get in to my voicemail

3.5 hours and 5 representatives (poor phone connection, roosters crowing loudly in back ground, and difficult to understand due to heavy accent) and I still cant get in to voicemail. Told there is no IT to get more help. VERY frustrating. Need my voicemail!!

User's recommendation: Find company with US based IT help.

12 yr old activated phone unauthorized

my 12 yr old daughter activated a phone without my authorization. I wanted to put safety measures on phone before it was activated, however her older sister activated it without my knowledge or authorization. my 12 year old daughter seems to be getting messages from adult sites and people are contacting her via her phone. she is 12, this phone (mobile data)needs to be shut off right now. I can regulate her wi fi but I cant regulate her mobile data - I dont need my daughter being contacted or talking to people on the internet, she is only 12

Angry abd dissatisfied

when a customer pays forr 1-2 day shipping thats what we expect. I ordered phone Wednesday. It should have been pricessed on Thursday abd sent out by Friday. I still have no tracking information. I expected to receive phone by saturday and they are telling me it will be delivered next week. They need American agents instead of foriegners. They refuse to fefund the shipping cost that I paid for.

User's recommendation: Dont buy a phone through straighttalk. Buy at Wal Mart if you can. Dont pay for quicker shipping.
