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.

does this service plan come with call waiting, call forwarding and voice mail

answer 1
Yes. The ST Home Phone has the following features:

"$15/30-Day Home Phone Unlimited* Nationwide Calling. Local and Long Distance Calling includes voicemail, caller ID, 3-way calling, call waiting, call forwarding, E911 and 411 at no extra cost."

Only disappointment is that Caller ID delivers the caller's number only, no name... so far. I'm hoping they add the name at some point in the future?

You have to set up voicemail for 1st use, then you access your voice mail messages with *86.

Call forwarding is activated by dialing *72 followed by the other tel. number. It's deactivated with *73.

Yes, that's the way to do it: buy the box and try it before asking ST to port your old number to it. You should keep your landline or other service until this is done and you confirm that your old number works when calling it.

We got our old number ported in about 3 days, no problem. There's a form you fill out online and they take care of the whole thing, including deleting your old number's account with the old co. You don't need to do a thing, except fill out the form.

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.

Yes, this will be a separate phone system from any other you currently have and continue to pay for their service, in addition to ST Home Phone

I have an 8-handset wireless system attached to my ST box plus, for testing, I also connected a tel. cable to the 2nd jack ion the back of the box to one of my existing wired phone jacks in the wall and it allowed me to ALSO connect as many wired telephones to the existing wall jack.

The cable from box to one wired jack made ALL wired jacks "hot" for any other telephone in the other wired jacks.

What little time mine worked, it could ONLY work with cordless. It never would work at all, even with just the corded phones attached. The whole system and especially the so called tech support has been a major disaster and a major waste of money!

There are two ports on the Straight Talk Home Phone device and you can use two corded or a cordless and a corded with the two ports. Both the ports will be on the same phone number.

Yes, you can keep your current service with Time Warner but the phones you use will have to be separate as the two systems will be totally independent of each other. Obviously, one set of phones will be associated with your Time Warner phone number and then a different set of phones will be associated with your Straight Talk number.

No. You can only use the Straight Talk Home Phone Card available at Walmart on this device.
The device runs on the Verizon network and has the nations best coverage.
It should work for you if you can receive signal on a Verizon cell phone where you plan on using it.

I don't think so but why not call them and ask if they can do something special to allow you to buy the box then set up an account with just enough $$ to test the device? They may even have some "special" way to do that.
