She said I had to pay for service for 12 months before I can unlock phone and sim. When I have had straight talk for many years this phone for close to 3 years. I have paid 60$ plus since before 2o13. It said free to unlock on websites I should be able to transfer my number and phone to qlink government phone. I have more the paid for service to earn point u took from me hundreds of dollars for phones and services I have been loyal customer and I would get it again but right now I can't so I need to get this government phone so I have a phone back when I can afford it again and treat me like *** and tell me I have to pay for 12 month before u unlock my stuff.

Hi Amanda N Toh. This is Maria from Straight Talk Wireless.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Our branded phones are not carrier unlocked. It can only be activated in our service. However, we can unlock your phone only if you meet the set requirements.

Straight Talk Wireless will provide an unlocking code to customers who request unlocking, provided they meet the following conditions: 1. Device must have not been reported as stolen, lost, or associated with fraudulent activity. 2. Device may have already been unlocked or device may have a pending unlock request (customer should call for resolution).

3. Device must have been activated on Straight Talk Wireless service for no fewer than 12 months. 4. Device must have redeemed no fewer than 12 months of service.

5. Device must have active service or be within 60 days after service expired. However, beginning February 03, 2021, we now offer our customers the option to unlock the phone for a fee if they have not met the 12 months of service requirements. The fee will be $150 minus $12 for every paid active month per device (cards on reserve are not calculated as paid active).

To further discuss these in details, chat with us at http://bit.ly/2CuBvXO or call 1-877-430-2355.

For your convenience, our representatives are available Monday-Sunday from 8:00 AM to 11:45 PM EST. You can also use our self-service menu by simply texting the word HELP to 611611.

Multiple help failures

1) I tried to change numbers. My number was cut but no new number was provided. 2) I tried to chat, since I couldn't call, and I was told the chatters were too busy to chat!

User's recommendation: Get another phone provder, not ST.

Poor customer service.

I am a long time customer and up till now all was good! Today I was dealing with a concern and I was lied too by a rep and then hung up on by two supervisors. Consider other plans before dealing with Straight Talk Wireless! Disappointed.

User's recommendation: Don't use them.

Unlock my phone I paid for. Straight Talk canceled my service 9 months ago. Now they have no record. I paid for a phone I cannot use. I was told I would have to pay for a year service that I am not going use.

Unsatisfactory customer service

Contacted customer service after purchasing a new bring your own SIM card customer service representative took it upon herself to not only deactivate the new purchased card but also to disable my existing SIM card from my old Straight Talk phone their resolution to this problem what's for me to go and buy another bring your own SIM card at a cost of $55 each so it needs to say I am an unsatisfied customer because not only did they take away my phone service but cost me income waiting to get my phone turn back on back on
