Straight Talk - Liars and thieves

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
This is my third FCC complaint this week.
Please tell me and thousands of Straight Talk customers on how to shut
this company down. I received my replacement phone on Thursday. The
phone worked fine until 6/20/2014, then all of a sudden the 3G aspect
was not working. I emailed Teresita and told her I had no data
connection. We talked briefly about the problem and I could not get the
phone to work under Wi-Fi except at my home and even then there was no
good connection. I called and left her 2 messages no response. I called
back later...

Straight Talk - Used phones

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Straight Talk will flag all phones which mean if you buy a second hand ST phone, it can not be activated without the original proof of purchase faxed to them. Only then will they consider activating it. If a second hand phone is not their branded phone. They will disable data which causes the phone not to be completely usable with ST. Straight Talk's BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) program falsely advertises compatibility with other carrier phones. They simply do not fully work. Especially VERIZON PHONES. I will be leaving ST as soon as a find a decent carrier at a descent price. The above wasn't...

Straight Talk - Never Received $45 cards or credit

Posted: 2014-03-24 by    Dave Penn
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
DO NOT BUY STRAIGHT TALK! Ordered 2 SIM cards and 2 x$45 monthly cards. When package arrived only SIM cards were inside. Explained to customer service and they said phones could not be activated without the cards. It was very frustrating trying to communicate with the agent so I finally said to cancel my order and I would ship the SIM cards back. I shipped the cards and now 6 weeks later I still have not received $112.30 credit. I have spoke several times with customer service with no resolution yet.
WORST COMPANY EVER!...

Straight Talk - taking out extra payments

Posted: 2014-01-02 by    Please be careful
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Straight talk has been taking out extra payments every other month since
April 2013, I have been on the phone with them for a very long time. Their system shows no extra payment and I was instructed to call my bank. My bank explained that Straight Talk has been taking extra payments out. The bank can only go back thirty days and Straight Talk refuses to resolve the issue. There is a black hole in their accounting and they are the problem. They will not resolve the issue. I urge consumers to check their bank accounts every month....

Straight Talk - Worst customer service

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
DO NOT BUY STRAIGHT TALK!!! You will regret it. They are too cheap to pay real people to be customer service. Everyone is in India and they get mad when you can't understand what they're saying. They also have NO IDEA HOW TO SOLVE ANY PROBLEMS. I bought airtime and tried to add it to my phone and for some reason it did not work so I had to call for help. I spent 2 hours the other night on the phone and they were unable to fix anything. I spent another 2 hours again in hopes of something getting fixed this time, and NOPE nothing was fixed. They know nothing about the services, they just...

OMG! I bought hubs a new phone in July of this year (2013). Every month thereafter I have had issues with the refill cards. He would refill them online as his phone did not have the option to refill on his phone (yeah I know right). His phone will never refill. I have to call customer service and go through this each month.. Telling them each time the same thing. He bought the card, activated it, yet he never got the credit to his phone. Every darn time I get the same answer.. That number has been added to another account. What other account! We only have this one. The numbers are very close and...

Straight Talk - Incompetent Service

These people are incompetent. I'm here with a non-working phone because of more stupidity and unprofessionalism on the part of the Straight Talk people.

Last month, despite my clear directive that the phone rep add my service plan card to "reserve, " the genius with whom I was speaking applied it immediately, thereby wiping out the 7 days that I had remaining. It took me three days of emails to the ST corporate resolution people to have that 7 days added back on (so that my correct service end date is October 10th), and to reinstate the minutes/texts/data balances to...

Ordered phone online with agent telling me which phone worked on the AT&T network. When phone arrived it was for the Sprint Network and would not work in my area. Spent 400 on this phone and when I called to complain about the phone, was told to ship it back and would take up to 30 days for refund to be issued. Do not order from them, buy regular phone and move it over to straight talk for good savings....

Straight Talk - Phone replacement

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
When my Straight Talk cell phone went bad (within a year) I contacted them to receive a new phone, but their policy is to require that the faulty phone be sent first prior to receiving a new one! This will leave me without a cell phone for who knows how long! I spoke to tech support, then had no luck with a "manager". Other companies send you a new one first, then you send back the broken phone. I am cancelling my service as soon as I find a new carrier. That policy alone is enough to drive me away, and it did! I will never use their services again!...

I bought a Straight Talk phone for $130.00 and the unlimited data plan, $45/month at the end of January this year. Three times in the 5 months I've had the phone there has been problems. This last time I cannot connect to the Internet at all. The phone also will have occasional problems with the screen. I called about the problems and was told to troubleshoot the phone I needed a 2nd phone to be on while they went through the steps. So I went to the Walmart store where I bought the phone and the employee at the electronics counter called Straight Talk and after 45 minutes and the problem not...

Multiple times my phone has not allowed me to call out. Here is what has happened within the past year of my service. First time, customer service said I ran out of days. Second time, said I didn't use it enough. Third and fourth time, no reason. Here is what I did when the service was deactivated.

Went to the service center online, they said my phone ran out of minutes. This is a few days after putting a service card on the reserve. This would have meant I had 35+ days left on the activation. Asked for a reason for the deactivation, they said I didn't use the phone enough....

Okay, here's the deal. I left Altell(bad decision) for Straight Talk simply because my monthly bill was high. In this economic environment I have to be careful with my money. I was using my original Android Altell phone as a hotspot via tethering. This was not a problem for Altell, and for the money I was paying for the service it shouldn't have been. My contract ran out and I heard all this hoopla about Straight Talk and their service. So, stupid me joins up. I find after about 2 months of using their service that it was OK, nothing to write home about but it was getting the job done....
