You can purchase a Straight Talk Hot Spot, but any form of tethering your phone is not allowed.

answer 2
Unfortunately, no, not with phones. It's against their Terms and Conditions of Service to tether any device which includes using a phone as a hotspot. All the phones they sell will have the hotspot capability disabled.

They do have a device that is a dedicated hotspot, however. It's $79 and you can see and order it here (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-WiFi-Mobile-HotSpot-3G/30824075

It will have separate plans from the phone plans and therefore will not be able to use this $45 Unlimited Plan for phones.

If you purchase service from Walmart, it will depend on your local jurisdiction whether they charge sales tax on phone cards or service. For instance, in the state where I declare residency, there is a sales tax but it is not charged for phone cards. Some states or local areas are required to charge sales tax and possible some smaller miscellaneous fees, however.

If you purchase service directly from Straight Talk, they may be required to charge small access fees, and/or other small miscellaneous charges in addition to sales tax. Again, it all depends on what your local jurisdiction requires. Usually the charges are less than $2.

Example: I have residences in two states. If I order this card online from Walmart in the first state, there is no sales tax charged (the state has a sales tax but not on phone cards) nor are any other fees added.

However, if I order this same card online at Walmart and give the address of the second state, they charge sales tax at the local rate and add a fee called "Merchandise fee" of $0.95.

If I order service directly from Straight Talk in the first state, they also add a "Prepaid Wireless 911" fee, a "Federal Universal Service" fee of $0.68 and a "Regulatory Cost Recovery" fee of $0.09, plus sales tax.

Therefore, the way to save the most money is to purchase service online at Walmart as far in advance as possible to save the maximum amount ...that would be the 180-day service card for $249.99 which would essentially make the monthly charge $41.67. This way, even with a few small fees and sales tax added, would still make the monthly cost below $45.

So again, it all depends on what your local jurisdiction requires ...it's not Walmart nor Straight Talk's decision. They charge what they are required to by the local government.

Question

Where do I get a Straight Talk sim car for an iPhone 4 not connected to a provider like AT&T?

We have AT&T service now and would like to get away from them since their coverage in our area is limited. Thought by using Straight Talk we would have better service.

Theo, my understanding is that the iPhone 4 does not have a dual chip as the 4S. Therefore, if you unlock your phone to use with a Straight Talk SIM card, you'll still be using the AT&T network. Or, you may be able to use it with a Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM card. You can't use it with a CDMA network (Verizon or Sprint) at Straight Talk.

If you think that T-Mobile coverage may be better than AT&T, then you may want to consider researching using a Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM card. Otherwise, you will still get basically the same coverage that you are now using a Straight Talk AT&T SIM card that you are with going through AT&T directly.

Can I gift this to my sisters phone?

Teri, if you are going to give Straight Talk service as a gift, the way to do it is to go directly through Straight Talk as purchasing this $45 card at Walmart online is cumbersome as you do NOT actually take possession of the card ...it's done by code through an email. You then have to transfer the code to Straight Talk.

There are two better ways of doing it, however:

1. Go to a Walmart store and purchase the physical $45 card and then gift wrap it and give it to your sister in person

OR

2. you evidently can call Straight Talk and make arrangements to have service added to your sister's account ...they tell you that it can be done online but I believe you'd have to know your sister's email and password to her Straight Talk account.

Here's what Straight Talk says in their FAQ:

"Can I buy Minutes, Messages & Data as a gift for someone else?

Yes, you may buy a Service Card for somebody else. You will need to add the Service Card online at www.straighttalk.com/Refill or by calling our Customer Care Center at 1-877-430-CELL (2355)."

Update to my previous answer: Straight Talk now allows tablets on their hotspot plans. What tablets are compatible or if it includes all or some iPads, I'm not sure.

My understanding is it will not.

This Straight Talk plan supplies service to phones and not to tablets of any kind at this time. I believe the iPad 2 has no traditional voice calling function (does not act like a "normal" phone).

How will I know if the service will work without issues in my area?

check coverage on their web site using your zip code
answered 2 weeks, 2 days ago

answer 2
Farmchick, this may be an unconventional way to determine what type of service you'll have in your area but is what I consider to be sound advice.

Since Straight Talk as an MVNO uses all four of the major networks in the U.S. (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile) and what network used will be determined by what phone, phone model, or SIM card being used, you first want to determine what network the specific phone you are using will use ...again, it will use one of the four.

Whichever one of the four it is, it will use that network no matter where you travel in the U.S. and as long as the phone is on Straight Talk service.

Once you determine what network the phone uses, go to that carrier's street-level coverage map, put in your address or addresses you plan to use the phone to see the service level. If your phone uses Verizon or Sprint, it will be "NATIVE" service only (only on the towers that Verizon owns ...or only on towers that Sprint owns with no roaming privileges). If your phone uses AT&T or T-Mobile, you may or may not have some roaming privileges in places with other GSM towers.

Therefore, if you know you have good Verizon coverage, for instance, choose a Straight Talk phone or phone model that uses the Verizon network. If you know you have good AT&T coverage, choose a phone (or SIM card with an unlocked GSM phone) that uses the AT&T network ...etc.

The street-level coverage maps are available on each carrier's website. Let me know if you'd like the links to each.

Question

Plan specifics

I have a couple of questions. Is this plan for just 30 days of using? Do the minutes roll over or do I have to renew each month? Can you pay for year of service up front?

answer 2
Pam, yes, this card will be for only 30-days. There is no roll-over as everything is UNLIMITED ..."minutes are unlimited so you do not have to worry about roll-over, texting is unlimited so no roll-over AND data is "unlimited" but with a soft-cap at 3.0GB which means that once you reach 3.0GB of data your speed can be reduced substantially until your next 30-day cycle.

You do have to pay in advance for at least 30-days of service. There are many options on how to purchase service, however. You can buy service in 90-, 180-, or 365-day blocks for a discounted price. You can put service in "reserve" if you wish and, you can enroll in auto-refill where you can have Straight Talk charge a credit or debit card for the next month's service automatically.

Yes, you can pay for a year in advance and get a discount. Currently, Straight Talk is selling the 365-day block of service for $495. That means you'd be paying $41.25 per month for service instead of $45.

Yes you can. If you have a smartphone on Straight Talk service, you can access the internet through the mobile access provided.

There is a soft-cap on data usage (internet usage) at 3GB per 30-day cycle which should be enough for the average user. At the time you reach 3GB of usage, your internet speed could slow considerably. If you use the internet a lot, you may want to access the internet on your smartphone by WiFi instead of the mobile internet access provided by Straight Talk to help reduce your provided usage.
