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
ST Home phone has caller ID. The incoming phone number is displayed on your home phone receiver, if it has caller ID capabilities. If you want the name of the caller, it's just like your cell phone and will display the caller name and number if you have programmed the contact info into your home phone, if it has that capability. Most cordless home phones have contact programming capabilities now.

It includes caller ID, although I read another review that says the caller ID includes number only, not name. So, it is caller ID like a cell phone. Basically, it is a cell phone that you plug your landline handset into.

answer 1
The box has only two jacks on it, so only two phones could be connected to it, directly. As said before, if you have a wireless system connecting the phones, it can handle as many as your system can hold. (The only drain on the box is from the base station.)

If they are all connected by wall jacks, yes, you can operate them using the box (though I don't know how many) but make sure that the inside phone line has been disconnected from your former carrier before plugging the box into a wall jack.

answer 2
There is NO handset or telephone "registering" with the ST Home Phone required... you can use wireless or wired phones by just plugging one of the phones into the ST box.

With a wireless set (I have an 8-unit set), you just plug the base unit into the ST box and all the other units in the set are good to go. "Registering" only applies to a multi-unit wireless phone set, where each handset has to be registered to the BASE UNIT of the wireless set.

You can connect all your home phones to it! As long as they are registered with the product!

answer 4
I'm not sure there's a "limit"... I have 8 wireless phones with my base unit plugged into the ST box. Plus I tested the 8-phone system with an additional two wired phones plugged into my existing wall jacks.

It will surely handle your four phones, and more.

Do you realy have to give straight talk your social security number to install the home phone.

answer 1
My first Answer was not complete.

IF your ask ST to port your old number to this ST Home Phone, they will probably ask for the LAST FOUR DIGITS of your SS#.

That's used as an I.D. when they make the porting request to your old tel. supplier so they can verify it's your account... sort of how you might have to verify it's you, and not someone else, when you call them.

No. All Straight Talk service is pre-paid with no contracts involved and you are paying in ADVANCE for service. Therefore, there is no need for a credit check nor does Straight Talk care anything about your financial or personal situation. You can terminate service at any time without any penalty or owing Straight Talk any money.

This is opposed to your traditional home phone service or contracted cellular service where they are billing you for service you've already used. Therefore, many of those companies will want to do a credit check because they want to know that you will pay the bill they issue to you. When they do a credit check or check your credit worthiness, they usually need your social security number.

Again, Straight Talk doesn't care because there is no credit involved nor bills to pay. as you are pre-paying or paying in advance for service.

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?

WORKS GOO RUNS OFF OF VERIZON TOWERS IF YOU DON'T HAVE VERIZON NOW (YES I KNOW THIS IS THROUGH WALMART) BUT GO TO THAT SITE PLUG IN YOUR ADDRESS AND IT WILL SHOW YOU THE STRENGTH OF THE PHONE AND DATA (data is more of a true cell phone) ONE GOOD THING IF YOU GO ON VACATION YOU CAN TAKE IT IF YOU HAVE POWER.
