    Customer review by Gougednomore

    5.0 stars by Gougednomore

    Living in a very rural area had doubts as to whether or not I'd get reception. Set up next to window as recommended, no signal. Lifted device up about 18 in and noticed the blue device lights indicated strong signal, cool! Solution was to mount 18 inches above desk next to window for very strong signal. Second potential problem: my old phone company. Originally had planned on porting existing number, and my phone company refused to let Straight talk folks have permission to port my number, even though I still had existing landline account active and had given permission for this change of service. Called Straight talk folks helpline, and asked if going with a new number would allow a work around to get activated, they said "yes". So, unwilling to allow my soon to be cancelled very expensive landline company to further impede my attempt to get a new method of landline up and running, chose to go with a new phone number. The cordial folks at straight talk spent about a half hour changing the nature of my new account to go with new number rather than further attempting to port old number, and activated my new phone and number while on the phone with them. Voila, new phone number, new phone service up and running, in spite of former landline company trying to prevent this. Old phone company was charging me 27.95 for landline, and another 25 dollars on top of that in subscriber charges, surcharge charges, surcharge recovery charges, taxes, and other charges disguised to appear to be some sort of federal charges. Straight talk is 15 dollars a month, and 1.55 extra to cover ALL actual federal charges, taxes, state taxes, 911 service charges, and recovery charges. So, why did my old phone company charge 24 dollars more for what cost them 1.55? MMMMMMNnnn. Old phone company "gave" me 30 min of long distance "free" for around 50 dollars a month, 600.00+ a year, and straight talk costs 16.55 a month for unlimited long distance, local and includes all federal and state taxes and charges. 198.60 for a year compared to 600.00 plus a year, I like the unlimited calling for 198.60 a year better. Yes, could've gone with voip for cheaper, but since my old landline company is my dsl server and the only one available in the area, if that went down there would be no way to make any calls, emergency or otherwise. I went with Straight talk to have a phone (have no cell phone) for occasional calls w/no worries about astronomical long distance charges, and to have communications available in the event of no dsl service. This system is not dependent on having an internet connection, and is to replace a landline. My landline service jacked up my service another 20 dollars last month without notice or apparent reason, and that was my inspiration to finally dump my phone service with them. They got too greedy, and tried to make the billing charges appear as if they were "federal" charges, which they weren't, only .68 cents of the extra 20 plus in charges were actual federal taxes/charges. Very pleased with this alternative. And if Straight talk doesn't work in your area, you can return it at your local Walmart for refund. So, no risk. Great way to stop being gouged by your local telephone company.

    I have had this home phone service since it came out at the end of October. I have to say that I absolutely love having a phone that provides everything I need for $15 plus tax (it runs off the Verizon network). I also went ahead and bought one for my grandma. She was paying over $70/month for basic phone service (which didn't include long distance calls or voicemail). Setup took less then 15 minutes and we were up and running. If you're thinking of buying this, you definitely should!

    Even though this is sold by Straight Talk, the service is provided by Verizon. I have had Straight Talk cell phones, on the Verizon network, for years now with no problems. It was easy to set up and easy to port my old phone number on Straight Talk's website. This was a great option to replace my parents old expensive home phone service. This service is half the price of AT&T basic home phone service and includes voicemail, and caller id. My only complaint with Straight Talk is waiting on hold for half an hour for customer service if you need them. The AC adapter converts to 12 VDC, so you could even get a cord for your car and make yourself a good old fashion car phone.

    • They have auto refill if you want to ensure the service remains active and that way you do not have to worry about buying more than one card. If you buy more than 1 card at a time, any additional cards would be added to your reserve to be used when your 30 days are up.

    • Smoke, yes you may buy several cards at 1 time, I've done so.

    • There are several options. Here are three: 1. Buy several cards from Walmart and then give all the codes to Straight Talk at one time where they will put them in your "reserve account" and will extend your "Service End Date" out to correspond with how many codes (or as Walmart calls them, a PIN) you put in your reserve. 2. Purchase service directly from Straight Talk for as many months as you'd like. You can do this online or over the phone. This method doesn't require transferring codes as you'd have to do when purchasing service cards from Walmart. 3. Enroll in Auto-Refill at Straight Talk where Straight Talk will automatically charge your credit or debit card each month for service in advance. This is the most convenient way to do it as you don't have to even think about having to pay each month or buy service cards. However, it does require you to give Straight Talk a credit or debit card number to keep on file and some don't like doing that.

    • You can buy as many cards as you like because you can put them in reserve. So make sure that you have a reserve account so that all your cards are not for the same time period. In reserve, your time goes on as the one on there expires.

    • Yes, you can buy multiple cards for service and refill your account one at a time each month, or you can add ALL the cards to your Reserve from which they'll "withdraw" each month's fee. You can go online to your account (after you set it up) and do all kinds if stuff like Manage your Reserve Account. Or you can call them and have a CSR add them to your Reserve Account.
