I have never had so much trouble trying to use a company's website as I have with Straight Talk. I spent nearly an hour on their website just trying to add minutes to my straight talk cell phone.
Not only did I have a hard time trying to log into my account but every time I was moved to a new page it took me to yahoo with this: http://s7.addthis.com///ct1.addthis.com/static/r07/sh140.html
as the message. I could believe that something could be wrong outside of the website but after taking actions against this, including going to a different computer, I still got this message. Sometimes it would allow me to go through the whole process but when the $10 global plan popped up after placing my service plan selection it would pull this message again. I ended up calling the automated service and it took less then 2 minutes!
This is the second time I have had to deal with this! Considering that the website still offers the $30 service plan and the automated does not I am lead to believe whomever is supposed to be maintaining this website is sleeping on the job or just simply doesn't care. There are plenty of people in this world who know how to maintain a website so please remind your maintenance crew that they can easily be replaced. Maybe some work will be done.
I have used the live chat option before and had perfect service. Though I would not advise calling them as they are down right rude and clearly have no wish to help at all. That is if you can find someone who speaks clear English (if that is the language you wish to be used) without a heavy accent that makes communication difficult and understands English in return. Its why I want to use the website.
To avoid the difficulties of a language barrier and so I can maintain my account. So, Straight Talk if you care about your customers even a little bit please have meeting with your website crew and inform them to shape up or get out.
