I bought one Iphone from Straight Talk I previously owned the Samsung Galaxy Showcase, activated it and eveything, no mobile web, it did call and text, I spent hours upon hours with customer service, eventually they got it working, for a day then the next day no signal, it kept saying searching, so I reset after that it would not go past the activation screen, I called customer service for hours upon hours, they couldn't get anything done about it, it was a big waste of time, eventually he told me to turn off my phone for one hour then turn it back on, this was late at night, one hour before customer service closes, so he wanted to just get rid of me by lying, hour later nothing. The next day I returned it for a new Iphone activated it everything worked fine for about 2 weeks then today no mobile web, it keeps going from 3G to 0 over and over and over, not able to make calls or text, my service end date isn't expired, I barely used 50 some MB's of data, I didn't drop it, get water in it, anything, I took care of it like it was my baby, anyways I reset it, it now says no service, and a little window pops up saying your phone was not activated, please call a 1800 number. I am pretty much fed up with the iphone, I think that it is not something that works good on this prepaid service for some reason, I have owned lots of prepaid smart phones from Virgin Mobile to Boost and Straight Talk, I have never ever had any problems like this, it is just so stressful, when I don't need stress for a dumb phone, this is the last straw for me, I am going to get another phone and forget about the Iphone, this is one of the best phones I've ever had, just there is too much complications with the Straight Talk service, if you don't believe me just google it, I know people who have the Iphone with Att and Verizon who don't have these problems, don't get this with Straight Talk, get another phone, spear the headaches, if you want an iphone go to one of the big companies, Straight Talk has some good smartphones just as good as an Iphone I think I'm going to get the LG Optimus Showtime it has android 4.0. Thanks for reading I hope this helps you.
