Do I just buy the black box at $69.88 and plug it up? Then what? What are the steps I need to follow?

answer 1
Cindy, I apologize for the responses so far not being helpful.

Those two links I gave in my initial response, should be all you need for easy set up instructions.

The video by Straight Talk gives a good overview of the procedure. The second link will give you the step-by-step written instructions included in the packaging that will walk you through each step.

One thing I forgot to mention is that you will have to purchase service ($15) either from Walmart or directly from Straight Talk in order for the activation to be completed entirely. You can purchase that service at the time of activation if you wish.

Again, I'm sorry for not being more helpful. Post again if you have any specific questions about the set up or how the device functions.

Cindy, I'll give you two links. The first is a very helpful video tutorial from Straight Talk on how to set it up. The second is the Services Guide that comes with the unit that will give you step-by-step instructions on set up. You can preview both ahead of time if you'd like. Both will give very good directions on setup (copy-and-paste):

Question

Does this have GPS location built in, for emergency use?

I noticed the Verizon home connect has a GPS locator in the device, for use of emergency personnel. I don't see any mention of it on here, but it was located in a tiny spot on Verizon's website for their product. JUST HOPEFUL :) THANKS!!

Your Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone unit is embedded with a GPS chipset that transmits its location. Since the unit is designed for indoor use.

I think my 1st Answer gave the wrong model # of the ST Home Phone Box.

It's FT226C, not FT2260.
answered 10 months ago
By

answer 3
It should work since the box is the exact same box used for the Verizon Home Connect service, a Huawei FT2260.

The manual says 911 service works with that box.

Yes, this will work with your ADT alarm system as long as it uses a cellular dialer. ADT can install the additional device if your system doesn't already use one.

answer 2
No. Not familiar with ADT, but you might ask them if they are like several other companies and can use your cell phone instead (if you have one... and there'll be a extra charge).

You'd have to use one of the PC/internet services, which are really like email with attachments.

The Straight Talk Home Phone will not support the traditional fax machine setup.

You would have to use non-traditional alternatives or the ones that are internet based such as (copy-and-paste):

http://www.efax.com/Free-Trial?VID=38867

or

http://faxzero.com/

...just to name a couple. I'm sure you'll get other suggestions too. But again, you won't be able to use a traditional fax machine to simply plug into the back of the Straight Talk Home Phone unit.

Straight Talk allows you to keep your existing phone number, however it is recommended to contact your Magic Jack representative to make sure that service will allow you to transfer your current number.

You should be able to port your number to straight talk home.

answer 3
Rocky, from what I've heard from others and read on the internet, Magic Jack intentionally makes it difficult to port a number away from them. However, they are required by FCC portability rules to release the number if all conditions are met.

What you need to do is to find your account number on your original Magic Jack invoice and have the password to your account available. You will need these two things regardless where you are porting your number to be it Straight Talk or some other provider. If you did not keep your original invoice or do not know your account number, that is where Magic Jack makes it difficult for you to retrieve it from them. You may have to jump through a lot of hoops or get a lot of run-around.

If you can't supply your new provider (Straight Talk, Vonage, etc.) with the account number and the password to your account, it will be almost impossible to port your number away from Magic Jack.

Does it work if the power goes out?

answer 1
It says it's battery back up should provide two minutes of talk, with 36 hours of standby. Of course, if it is connected to a cordless phone transmitter, you still won't be able to make the call. A corded phone should work, however.

Same as regular land-line, actually, but better than VOIP, unless router has a battery back up.
