Not resolved

On 5/29/2019 I loaded 1G of data on this hotspot. I was using it with a Republic Wireless Moto X phone for 15 minutes of navigation on 5/30/2019.

When I got to my destination the data was gone. I called customer service and they said I had used up the data. Lucky for me my phone tracks hotspot data usage. I had used 14.37 MB of data.

!G of data is 1000 MB. I told them that I would screen shot this and send all the information to the Miami headquarters if they did not restore my data. They finally restored my data. I think they are stealing the data and using it in their third world countries.

I had used an Internet on the Go device for 5 years with my Republic Wireless phone because I only use data for navigation. The minutes carried over so I only spent about $40 for data in 5 years. The device finally died.

I expected alot more from Walmart than this. I plan to write to corporate headquarters.

Product or Service Mentioned: Straight Talk Wireless Mobile Hotspot Plan.

Reason of review: international theft of data.

Monetary Loss: $15.

Straight Talk Wireless Cons: Customer service in third world countries is stealing data.

The Walmart Straight talk hotspot is a completely fraudulent operation. The autoreplies are fake and if you call the number you will go to the third world country stealing your data.

I did write a letter to the Miami headquarters and they sent me a letter. It was as fraudulent as the autoreply system. They are a front for the fraud. Americans need to diligently research hotspots because if your hotspot data is administered in a third world country it will be stolen.

If you purchase something from Walmart, they won't care or fix your problem. Buyer beware!!!!


I'm having a similar issue. I have a data logger with my firestick and it showed 5G after buying two 7G plans. I keep trying to talk to tech support but they refuse to help.

The people stealing the data are the people at that phone number and they are in a third world country. I spoke with five different people five different times.

I mailed a letter to Straight Talk in Miami on Monday and will send one addressed to CEO Doug McMillan. This is a fake autoreply.

There is no Maria at Straight Talk Wireless. Amazon is going to turn Walmart into a grocery store only with these kinds of business practices.
