The message that it will not work in the zip code is evidently an error on the Walmart website. (I had the same descrepancy between the ST Home Phone and the Service Card for my zip). I purchased a $15 service plan from walmart.com and entered into my ST Home Phone reserve account and it updated the new service end date, just fine.

ST Home phone is only on the Verizon network. If you get Verizon signal in you zip code, then it will work for you. You can go to walmart.com and pull up the ST Home phone system, enter your zip code and it will tell you if it works in your zip.

According to some reviews I've read, StraightTalk uses different cell towers in different areas and they try to keep that a secret. This question might not be answerable.

To at least see if it will work in your area, you can use the tool on this walmart website.

answer 1
They have auto refill if you want to ensure the service remains active and that way you do not have to worry about buying more than one card. If you buy more than 1 card at a time, any additional cards would be added to your reserve to be used when your 30 days are up.

There are several options. Here are three:

1. Buy several cards from Walmart and then give all the codes to Straight Talk at one time where they will put them in your "reserve account" and will extend your "Service End Date" out to correspond with how many codes (or as Walmart calls them, a PIN) you put in your reserve.

2. Purchase service directly from Straight Talk for as many months as you'd like. You can do this online or over the phone. This method doesn't require transferring codes as you'd have to do when purchasing service cards from Walmart.

3. Enroll in Auto-Refill at Straight Talk where Straight Talk will automatically charge your credit or debit card each month for service in advance. This is the most convenient way to do it as you don't have to even think about having to pay each month or buy service cards. However, it does require you to give Straight Talk a credit or debit card number to keep on file and some don't like doing that.

You can buy as many cards as you like because you can put them in reserve. So make sure that you have a reserve account so that all your cards are not for the same time period. In reserve, your time goes on as the one on there expires.

answer 5
Yes, you can buy multiple cards for service and refill your account one at a time each month, or you can add ALL the cards to your Reserve from which they'll "withdraw" each month's fee.

You can go online to your account (after you set it up) and do all kinds if stuff like Manage your Reserve Account. Or you can call them and have a CSR add them to your Reserve Account.

Probably not since they say:

"Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone is not compatible with data services such as: fax machines, DVR services, credit card machines, medical alert services, or some home security systems."

Note the "data services" ref. If your med system doesn't operate as a data device, then call your med system service provider and ask if it works over a cell phone connection that must dial out to send a signal.

You can buy several cards at one time and put them in reserve. If you want to buy a six month supply of cards and put them in reserve, then you can. Then you would only have to refill every six months.

No. You could also:

1. Give them your checking acct routing number (which is on every check you write, so It's not a secret) and they can do an ACH payment from that account every month. If you decide to stop the service, just call them and withdraw your routing number payment method.

2. Buy multiple Service Cards and place them in your RESERVE account at ST. That Reserve lets you put as many months on service in an account from which they withdraw each month until it's used up. Some people stock their Reserve for 3 months at a time, 6 months, etc. or as many as you feel comfortable doing. Just write your refill date on your calendar so you don't forget to buy some more cards. Once you decide you really like this new phone system, you might even stock up a year's worth!? This method keeps all personal info, like CC#, routing #, etc., out of the system altogether.

I think you can do it online using a debit card, they will email you a code then you can enter that. Otherwise, you will have to go to the stroe, buy a card and then enter the code online.

I had been saying NO to this question but recently found our that they might ask for THE LAST FOUR DIGITS of your SS# IF YOU REQUEST PORTING OF YOUR OLD TEL. #.

This makes sense since they'll be asking your old tel. company to transfer your tel. number to them and the old tel. company might want some proof that you requested it?

So, ONLY THE LAST FOUR DIGITS AND THEN ONLY IF YOU REQUEST THEM TO PORT YOUR OLD TEL. # TO YOUR NEW ST HOME PHONE?

They have two plans: $15/mo. Nationwide and $30/mo. International.

You buy the monthly card for each at Walmart. You can refill each month with more cards one at a time or enter them in your Reserva and they'll withdraw the service $ each month. Or you can set up an auto-pay option with a CC or debit card.
