Your Straight Talk Cell Service is the WORST cell service in the United States of America. There is not ONE person on you website that speaks ENGLISH!! I had ordered an expensive phone so I can use it for everything I might need to. Along with that I purchased the 45.00 service that says unlimited everything. That's a JOKE. I bought the phone on the 18 of July 2012 and had to call customer service every day up until I could take no more which was the 21st of July 2012. They told me I cannot return the phone. I also tried to cancel the NO CONTRACT service, and they actually told me I couldn't do that?? Today I will be on the phone with my State Congressman, our local ABC station that has a consumer advocate that loves to fix the WRONGS of companies like yours. Next I will call the BBB, so that others will see how wrong this is to treat a customer or any person for that matter, I happen to be a disabled person and I am appalled at how you treat people. Please do everyone a favor and take off your CS automated menu, " For ENGLISH PRESS ONE" Your customer service people do not know how to set up a phone. The only thing they tell you is to delete everything and start over. HELLO??? The phone is DEFECTIVE.

I have had their service for over a year.

Pros: Cell service and signal is strong.
I have service in places others do not.
BUT this is not worth the cons.

If you think you are fine because you have not needed it, just wait.
I had to get a new CC. So I called with the new card number. The
hookey "read from q cards" responses had me worried. So I called a week
later, and gave them my new CC information.....again. Apparently, the first
call was lost in cyber space.
A week later, my phone was shut off because they were using the old CC!!
Then trying to get someone to speak to me off a q card is impossible
because few even understand English, they are programed to input
information not to solve problems.

Bottomline: This service is not worth the money it saves you.

I do not have the service but am thinking about getting the service.
I asked the dept manager about it and was told that the service is actually through Verizon and you run off their towers. I currently have US cellular and have no complaints at all, but with the service at WalMart for $45.00 a month, you get unlimited everything and nationwide service and text, pics. You can not beat the price.
It's not through verizon. That's incorrect. It runs off their towers & you can only deal with straight talks customer service or Walmart if you're having issues. It's a competitor to verizon & other companies... So I u tried to walk into a verizon store & said here fix this straight phone they WILL laugh at u

I have had a straight talk phone for over 2 yrs and have had no problems at all, they even sent me a new sims card for free. I purchase my minutes online at there web site unless, i am in walmart. it is one of the best services that I have had, so the peeps on here that claim they have problems and that the company needs to be reported, must be plain stupid.

We switched in March. We have had no issues at all. Bought three Iphone 3gs off ebay and got the straight talk sim card and installed. So far so good.

Is anyone using the Wal-Mart Straight Talk cell phone service.Thinking og getting the monthly plan for my daughter.
Good Service?
Bad Service?
Thanks for any help.
I had purchased one for my son. Works great. now, I tried to do it again and it didnt work. Not only didnt it work but I paid for a full year in advance and they wouldnt refund my money. I spent about 10 hours on the phone with people from India trying to get this resolved and I cannot tell you how pissed I was. So, I suggest paying for the first month only until it is activated properly.

Their Customer service isnt even in this country. I would be surprised if Straight Talk is even a US company the way they are handling customer complaints. DONT PAY FOR A FULL YEAR! If they cannot acivate your phone the first time over the website you will not get a refund. SUPER JACKED UP!

My husband,have had s-talk for almost a year,and we loved it.We refilled our phones and the next day my husbands internet stop working.We called them and waited 20 on hold,and the customer service is awful.They told us he went over his data,which my husband works all the time so he really does not use that much data.We asked them how much they said they did not know,how can you shut some one off with no prove.Unlimited is suppose to be unlimited.We are going back to atat.You may pay more but if stright talk takes your money and shuts your phone off ,you are not saving money.They said if you tex or call to much or use more data than they think you should they turn your phone off.They said they could not give us a limit so how much is to much on unlimited.Before going to this service read all the bad reviews.We will never use them again.

I bought the straight talk phone in November. I can get on facebook, google, but can NOT check AOL email. It just keeps saying "network error." I also am not satisfied with calls out of state. It cuts in and out and then drops the call. VERY frustrating! My NET10 phone and service worked much better.
I had a trip into Arizona from California no service at ALL!! And all three of us had Straight Talk phones, it was a bad experience to be on vacation without cell phones... Hate Straight Talk now

It's a good cheap plan if you can deal with machines that don't understand English very well, or even worse, what you DO speak with a person, they're in India and don't speak clean English either.

I finally gave up this month - switched to T-Mobile. I need service I can depend on. Periodically, I spend half a day dealing with the latest bad-service issue with 1Straight|Talk

HEY WALLY-WORLD! what is the matter with you people and your phone service? wake the hell up! people want what you are selling and it is your job to provide the service they pay for! this is what happens when everything you buy or order comes from some sucked up 3rd world hell hole! how about bringing back "MADE IN AMERICA" and some pride in what you pander to consumers?

Purchased the Samsung R451C QWERTY phone,$99.00 , two months ago in November(currently into my third $30 phone plan). Three days ago suddenly the phone would not work. Was informed at the WalMart where i bought the phone i needed to purchase another phone, that there was nothing they could do....in no uncertain terms. Returned home and called Customer Service, and yes, is in another country as was very difficult to effectively communicate with the assistant who clearly spoke another language primarily. 45 long process filled mins later, no resolution. They refused to believe the phone itself was defective. Said would take another 24 to 48 hours to try to resolve the issue on their end. This has become incredibly inconvenient. The phone was never dropped or abused in any way to have caused it to malfunction. One would hope that there would be an exchange plan for a phone still so new, or at the very least some type of customer service at WalMart. Have written a letter to "The Executive Resolution Dept" in Miami expressing my displeasure. I expect very little help in the matter. I have very much enjoyed the phone and monthly plan, but this is certainly a major drawback of this cost saving cell phone plan. Seems must always be a catch when trying to save a few bucks.
I too have had the same problem. I have abused or damaged my phone in any way and I get sudden drop calls, my phone all of a sudden turns off on then back on, on its own and it will continue to do this a few times. I struggled with customer service but finally after months of attempts they were willing to exchange my phone for a new one and after 6months of using the replacement phone, I'm now having the same problem. customer service advices and helps me reset my phone every time which means I end up loosing all of my pictures and data due to resetting. And yes it's very difficult to communicate with customer service as its hard to understand them.
