Activating new phone issues

I have been trying to activate a new phone for a week! I have had service with Straight Talk for roughly 10 years, I have not had issues before. Please resolve the issue.

SERVICE SUCKS!!!! DO NOT FOR ANY REASON WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH STRAIGHT TALK! Initially good service, not great but good. Now I can't even get signal at my residence

At one time I had 4 bars of service in my home, now I can't even make a call from home.Straight talk service is basically NONEXISTENT, keep getting notices that my phone is not registered on a network even when I have 4 bars.....which is RARE in itself.

User's recommendation: Avoid Straight talk at all cost!

Horrible

zero customer service!! don't think you will ever be treated like a person. you can not speak to a person when an issue arises. you can not get help!! it's automated and the system will not help you!

User's recommendation: do not use them!

If you buy a service pin card and it doesn't work you can't return it or have it fixed.

Update by user Oct 19, 2021

I'm still not happy with the fact that I have my other phone out there that they had logged into my Gmail and it has private stuff on there and I'm going to contact Walmart now for customer service because that is against anything to keep someone's phone with their private stuff in there.

Still upset

I was on vacation last week and my phone must have gotten wet or something happened! Long story short I went to the nearest Walmart and I paid I think $179 for the phone they said I could hook the phone up myself they said I could come back tomorrow if I...

Okay now I've added minutes last night on my phone and they did not go through so therefore I cannot make any calls or anything I'm on Wi-Fi but I cannot get this straightened out until I get to another phone and have to stay on the phone which will probably be later and they'll be closed !! I'm supposed to receive phone calls from my lawyer concerning my nanny and my aunt's death okay so this is very important to me this is what I'm talking about they didn't have the phone I bet you they don't have it registered I don't understand this and I really am upset about this this is very important

My data disappeared

For one I love how all of them are supervisors none of them speak English. They always tell you they don't have that information in front of me . Never once have I ever gotten anything resolved by straight talk. Or they just hang up all the time when they don't know the answer

User's recommendation: Don't get straight talk.

Billing

I started Straight Talk with a bill payment on the 26th of the month. Now it comes out on the 8th. When I ask what their billing cycle is I'm told 30-31 days. They don't know basic math nor when explained that 365 divided by 12 is 30.42. I should not be losing days. Even adding the leap year it doesn't go below 30. If they are doing this to everyone it's plan theif!

User's recommendation: Find a different service.
