Sounds like you are out of minutes or texts. If you're on an auto refill program, you just have to wait for your service date, or you can add more minutes/texts by purchasing them online.

Go to the straight talk website and contact them through the contact us button. But I suspect your phone's airtime has run out, and you have not paid it on time, so now you will have to re-register your phone, and start again.

According to StraightTalk's web site you can enable service again by purchasing and applying another service card. The downside is that any time you let service lapse there is a possibility of losing your number! In practice I don't know how often this happens or how soon after you let your service lapse but it's good to keep in mind.

How long can you be on the internet if you buy two 30 minute cards?

Just buy a $45 and u get unlimited data.

answer 2
Each $30 card includes 30MB of data. You can be online until you've downloaded 60MB if you have 2 cards. Keep in mind that if you run out of data and apply a new card you will lose the remaining minutes and messages from the previous card. So you would be starting the 30 day clock again with 1000 minutes/messages and 30MB data.

I don't think that straight talk has 30 minute cards, that would be a completely different service like net 10, trac phone or virgin mobile. With the $30 card you get 30mb which from my experience you can check three or so stocks once a day for a month. Or i would say about 90-120 pages on the internet depending on the amount of pictures on the sites, more pictures=more mb.

No, at least not yet! Each phone has to be registered, and each phone has to have the airtime card paid for. Straighttalk is making a lot of changes recently, so they may offer a family plan in the near future.

There are two refill cards available from StraightTalk: $30 for 1000 minutes, 1000 messages and 30MB data and $45 for unlimited message/text/data. If you have multiple phones in your family EACH phone requires a card each month.

no I don't think so. you buy a phone for yourself and buy your mintue card for your phone so you would have to buy a phone and card for each person needing a phone and a card. but the cards are 30.00 for 1,ooo mins and test 1,000 or you can buy a 45.00 card and get unlimted mins. you buy a card every 30 days. its just cheaper!

answer 1
You can keep your present number if you transfer it from your old service provider, but it will take quite some time, before the number will be transferred, (Can be up to 2-3 weeks in some cases), and during that time you cannot use the straight talk phone.

as far as I know you can keep your number ! It may take awhile longer to get you phone on though because your keeping the same number. its faster to get your phone on if you just get a new number. no paper work or anytihng and its more simple for them . i didn't keep my same number cause I didn't want to wait that long. I needed my phone turned on soon as possible!

I personally use the LG 290C right now, and it does not use a SIM Card. Its a very reliable phone. In the 10 1/2 months I've had it I've only ever dropped 3 calls.

Here's a partial answer - Any phone model number ending in C doesn't have a sim card. The one's with a G do. They represent 2 different cell tower networks, which is probably why one works better than another in your area.

I am in Orange, CA. In this area it is a CDMA phone and appears to be using Verizon's network. When calling my number after I requested the transfer to this phone, but before it was complete instead of getting my old AT&T voice mail I got the message "The Verizon customer you are calling is not available..."
