What you will need is to be in an area where there is good Verizon Wireless coverage. You may have weak cell phone coverage for another carrier but as long as you have Verizon coverage, the Straight Talk Home Phone should work fine. If not, then correct, this will not work. Verizon has relatively good coverage in rural areas so you may be in a Verizon area.

You can check if your exact address is in the Verizon native coverage area by going to the Verizon interactive coverage map and inserting your address. Copy-and-paste this link:

http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/

Check the "Prepaid" button after you've inserted your address and then click on the "Refresh Map" button. If your location is in the purple-shaded area, the Straight Talk Home Phone will work. You have to be in the purple-shaded area otherwise it will NOT work.

This device runs off of Verizon towers. To check the coverage in your are, enter your zip code on the product page.

Since your bad cell reception could be due to the carrier and cell phone, there's no way to know for sure if ST would be better except to try it.

Use the box at the top of this page to check first. Enter your zip code and it will let you know in advance if it "should" work.

Luckily, Walmart has a 15-day return policy on this unit.

No SIM cards are involved. The box is a self-contained cell phone for home use... portable, however, and battery-powered for use in power-outages or for short term use in another location that doesn't have household power.

One guy took his phone from Dallas to his daughter's place in Houston to try it out there (I think those were the cities involved, but you get the idea)

Question

Do phone plans prices only last 30 days?

If you don't use the phone a lot, Do you continue to pay for plans that expire in 30 days? Is there a cheaper plan than $15?

answer 1
Micki, as others have said, each 30-days of service is to be paid in advance and is $15. Unless you have a cell phone or another alternate phone, you'd want to keep this service uninterrupted for emergencies, etc. as this is intended to be you main home phone service. And yes, this is the least expensive Straight Talk plan (either mobile or home phone).

AND, as mentioned, you will lose your phone number if 30-days passes after your Service End Date and you have not added (renewed) service as per the T&C of Service. Therefore, although there are no termination or re-activation fees, it is impractical to not to renew service if you want to keep the same phone number.

There are only two plans; one for domestics calls and the other is for international call. Both plans are good fot 30 days.

answer 3
You can use the ST Home Phone for as many days of the 30-day service card as you want, then not use the phone for as many days as you want and just buy another service card.

Only thing to worry about is losing your prorted tel. number if no service for a long time... don't know how long that is, so call them to check.

Hi Ray,

It's 15.00 or 30.00 a month. Usually a couple of dollars will be added to cover state tax, 911 charges and a small federal tax. If you want a land line that's not dependent on your internet connection being up, it's a good deal. Not as cheap as going with something like magic jack, but if your online is down, you still have phone service....with magic jack and like services, if your internet is down you have no phone.

If the are say 10% total a $15 30-day card would $16.50.

Hi John, depends on the state you live in. I live in the 4th highest taxed state in the country (Minnesota) and all the surchages, recovery charges, 911 charges, federal charges and state taxes on this service run 1.55 a month on top of the 15.00 monthly unlimited calling landline plan. My old phone company had the same charges and many more disguised as "federal" this or that totaling more than 24 dollars above and beyond the service charge for having a landline. Safe to say all of the regular actual Federal charges, state taxes, 911 service charge etc are gonna run you a couple of bucks. (less than 5 dollars) Betting your landline service is charging you quite a bit more.

Jo,
This isn't an internet router. It's kinda like a modem sure, but one that allows cellular phone reception that you plug your regular landline phone into, to receive and use that reception. You pick up cell phone tower transmission to use with your land line phone. So, no, you won't be able to use this as an internet device.
