Straight Talk is prepaid cellular service offered through Walmart. The concept of the plan is to offer service for one set amount per month with no contract or monthly service charges. Customers upload money onto the phones where they receive unlimited talk and text. Several plans offer unlimited data. A benefit of Straight Talk includes no credit check and the ability to start and cancel service on your terms.

At times problems arise and customers need to contact customer service. Customers tend to contact the store where the phone was purchased, with little to no resolve. Instead of contacting the store, customers can contact the company directly by phone, mail or sending an email.

Straight Talk provides a 24-hour customer support line for new and existing customers. Questions regarding billing and account information are the priority, but the customer care representative also is knowledgeable about the product and the available plans.

In a nutshell: I've been a loyal customer for seven years. I was always satisfied with Straight Talk until after all the lawsuits took effect. They changed their high-speed data from 3 gigabytes to 5 gigabytes but tell me I've used 5 gigs after only 7 days use! My phone says I've only used 3! This used to be a great company but their name is no longer accurate when it comes to their service.

From 02/09/17 to today 03/02/17 I have been trying to activate my new phone with Straight Talk's bring your own phone program. On the 9th phone was activated with AT&T SIM Card which did not provide service in my area. Straight Talk Rep. said T-mobile has the best service in my area so he activated my phone with T-Mobile. I had only one to two bars for service :( He said, "don't worry by 4pm all the kinks will be worked out". Well, when 4 o'clock hit I no longer had service on phone. Instead of activating new phone they activated my old phone that I had with Straight Talk... Once again I am on the phone with Straight Talk.

After an hour and half they figure out what they did... "oh we need to send a new T-Mobile sim. We activated wrong phone." Okay, a week later I get the new T-Mobile sim. Call to set up my phone and REP says this card is already activated to the OLD PHONE... NOTHING I can do except send a new AT&T SIM. Twice old phone was activated and their only solution is to send another SIM which is an AT&T SIM that we already tried and it had no service. And no I did not get my $$ back from the company. VERY Disappointed!
