I have been a straight talk client for over a year now. and i am very satisfied with it. there are only a few things that i think could or should change and that is the phones that we get to choose from.
it would be nice to have a greater selection of phones and if there web service was on a 3-4g network. which i am sure it might cost a little more but hey i am welling to pay a little extra for the upgrade in straight talk.

After months of trying, I finally convinced my wife to switch her Verizon "$40, 1000 plan" to StraightTalk. She is mad, only that she waited so long to switch! We have been on for a year and could not be more pleased. One inconvenience was that you could not renew your plan until the other plan had expired, not always a good time. They have corrected this. The "free phone" promotion they're running now is amazing. Look for lower prices this year as they respond to competitors. If you're on the fence, give it a try, you won't be sorry.

Great service!! I will never go back to any other national carrier! Absolutely the best deal out there.

Easy to activate and great starter phone for younger kids. The plans are resonable prices. If you going to go with a pre-paid phone get a straight talk phone!

I love straight talk and the cheap refill cards. no one else beats straight talk. 30 bucks for 1000 min, text and you can go on the web and free 411. can't beat it.

Very good provider. I have not have had to talk to customer service. It took literally 4 minutes to activate my phone. I opted for a new number. I was talking in less than 5 minutes. Great reception, better than verizon in my area, and browser works great. I love it and only $45.00. I find myself cannot believing I do not have to watch my minutes..THE BEST!

I HAVE BEEN USING STRAIGHT TALK FOR A YEAR AND IT IS FABULOUS. WELL WORTH 45.00

I went to Washington state to pick up our household good from storage and Uhauled it back to our new home in Texas. I had service the entire ride. Even talked to the wife in the mountains to let her know I was safe (Winter 2009-2010). Also, I dropped my phone (R451C) and the dogs got it, chewed it a bit and brought it to my wife when she got off work. It is oddly decorated but I still use this beat up phone. Good phones & good plans. I have had service and phones from everyone but AT&T and Straight Talk is the most satisfied I have been.

I had a family plan with Verizon. Moved from WA to TX and called to suspend my service (which T-mobile does without question). The verizon person said I could but didn't do it and I magically owed $200+/mo for 4 months that we didn't even use the phones (plan had a permanent disc for the company my husband works at and our plan should have been $90). I caught them ghosting phone calls. The phones where in a box. I broke the contract and went to straight talk for me, my husband and two of my kids. I have not had 1 problem yet. It's been a year.

OH I WON'T GIVE THIS WEBSITE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DELETE THIS REVIEW. Along with my name the order number is 340273??. You did say partial well you have all but 2 numbers. Now for the review in case the other was deleted. I am literally wireless-less!! Two of us ordered the phones to port our numbers from sprint and my friend was with Verizon. His ported right over within an hour. Cool I was next. Ok I am waiting and waiting and calling my number and finally I here the obnoxious tones indicating that is was porting. I called the *22890 from my phone to complete the transfer. FAILED! Tried again FAILED! I did everything trying to avoid having to call the customer service that I have yet to see get a good review or anything. Well I ended up having to call, I couldn’t get it to work. After one hour I got past the wait and was ready to speak to someone. Well because they are foreign (and I have nothing against any race, religion nor color!!) I had a very difficult time understanding her. Needless to say the bottom line was to WAIT!!! They wouldn’t try anything for 24 hours. Now I call sprint thinking they are giving a hard time releasing my number. NOPE they said it was complete on their end and the account was closed. Wasn’t them. I only waited till the next morning armed with the information they had given me. AFTER ANOTHER 2 HOURS they say the phone is defective. Ok fine there is a 1 year warranty……No that is the easy part. Now here is the part that really sucks!! My number is in limbo I can’t use!!!!, they will send me the paperwork to fill out to send the phone back!!!!!, when they receive it they review it and get it approved for return!!!!! Then they finally send me another phone out!!!!! He said it takes about two weeks!!!! Unbelievable, I am stunned and very very pissed about the extremely pathetic and non-existent customer support. I can take spending more than necessary the time to resolve an issue but when you spend all that time and they don’t resolve it and treat you like you aren’t important and we don’t care we are in control and there isn’t a thing you can do to us. WELL YES THERE IS!!! This review and telling everyone I know. Believe me as soon as my number is up and running I am running to another carrier. Good Luck

I've had Straight Talk for close to a year now and I absolutely LOVE IT !!! I was paying so much for Verizon and they wanted 2 year contracts with every new phone. My entire family dropped Verizon and went with Straight Talk. We saved hundreds ! It's so freeing not being tied down by a contract and all the BS taxes ,phone fees etc etc. I've never had a dropped call and I have excellent service everywhere I go. My boyfriend uses Sprint and he pays $120 a month and he has to get near a window or outside to get reception. I'm the only one at my job who has service in the cafeteria at lunch.
One of my friends went to Straight Talk but she had the same problem that another reviewer had with switching phones and they deactivated her phone and gave her a new number. Her account also disappeared on-line and when she called the customer service they wouldn't help her at all. She started crying on the phone with them right next to me the last and 5th time she spoke to them because she was so frustrated. She spent hours on the phone with them and she could barely understand them. She now has AT&T and she has bad reception in our building. I really really hope that never happens to me because I really like my number. So far so good. I have the LG slider phone but I really want the NOkia E71 but unfortunately that phone runs off the AT&T network. ): You can't beat Straight Talk's deal. I use the $30 plan and it's perfect for me.

Straight talk is the best. I try straight tal for 3 months, and I love it.
Posted by Sarah (8 years ago)
I've been using straight talk for about nine months now. I absolutely love it! I never have problems with not having service. The price is the best thing about straight talk. You cannot find any deal like it. I will never switch unless for some crazy reason they raise the price.
Posted by Kayla Robbins (8 years ago)
it has great service except some minor areas and its a great deal and saves me money

Posted by Marlon Chapman (8 years ago)
I have been with Straight Talk a little over a year and it has been great so far. I have been shopping around because I was interested in a smart phone with out a contract. No that Straight Talk has a smart phone I am excited but it is a very expensive. The only hickup I've experience was not being able to accessing a social web site for a few days and customer service seem clueless. I was not sure if they were aware of the issue or what but I fely as if I was getting the run around for no reason at all, but over all Straight Talk gets an A from me. Great Product and Great Company!
Posted by kim (8 years ago)
I have a straight talk phone love the service but would really like to update my phone but so expensive looks like you could have specials like the verision or us cellular does
