I've had straight talk for 4 months and it is the worst service I've ever had. Customer Service is NON EXISTENT and based in Central America.

The signal is awful, photo messages are available only in your HOME area, no photo or web access while roaming....

I'm done. Gone to T-mobile...l TODAY! Don't waste your money on this *** of a service...

Usually Wal-Mart products are good..... but they should have stayed out of this market... Their contracts with cell tower providers is lacking terrribly.... There actual coverage is maybe good, but the ability to keep a call going is not. Too many dropped calls.

Have dealt with straight talk for years and figured our that you get new recruits on phone reading prompt cards.ask for floor supervisor and if he don't know then ask for his supervisor.my wife tells them first off ..before I ruin your day and you mine pass me to your superviser.nothing against you but they can direct me to service quicker and I won't end up yelling at you.I have problems with charging on some phones and same thing.they wanted me to reset phone when I couldn't even turn it on.he insisted I do that before we could proceed

I have had Straight Talk for a few months now.They advertise $29.99 per month.

Yet, I am charged $35.20 a month.

Walmart told me it is tax. That is 17% sales tax.

The phone is supposed to be unlimited talk and text only. Yet, for $5.00 more a month I could have unlimited talk, text and web with Metro.

My brand new phone does not hold a charge at all.

Once it gets to 2 bars the next step is a red bar indicating the phone is about to die.

I paired it with the blue tooth in the car and for some reason it keeps connecting and disconnecting as I drive.

I called home the other night and my wife could not hear me. She said it was breaking up. I tried calling the customer service number.

No one ever answered.I wanted to dispute the $35.20 a month when I should only be paying $29.99 a month This is horrible service!!!!

I needed to reactivate my phone service, but I lost my reactivation #. I got in touch with them, but all they could was sorry. I had already purchased a service, therefore I attempted purchase a SIM through their bring your own phone program, but they said that the phone ,"which I purchased through them", was not acceptable.

I have been using it for 20 days.Used my unlocked smartphone and got a TMobile compatible straight talk SIM.

No 3g coverage in areas with even good 3g coverage as per TMobile coverage map. Only edge works even though I have 3g network enabled and access points configured correctly. I have another friend on straighttalk with an at&t compatible SIM. 3G works for him, but terribly slow.

Pathetic customer service.You are lucky if you get someone on the line within 30 minutes of wait.

I am moving to TMobile at the end of 30 days period for which I paid.
