No, unfortunately you cannot . I do not have the Straight Talk plan but have had the VZW Home Phone Connect System for over 2.5 yrs. LOVE IT. Now I have to go ask why they aren't as cheap as Straight Talk is!

Verizon cell phones do not work in our home but do outside on the porch. Will this device work under a steel roof?

I think NormfromGA's response was great! I'm still ROFL. Hah! I agree with all of what he said.

However, I have friends who have this and they have a metal roof and their unit works fine ...but their cell phones (which are not Verizon) are "iffy" inside the house but outside they're fine.

I think the device itself should get better reception than a cell phone. It has a bigger antenna and is not relying on a battery for its power. Not sure if that makes any difference or not pertaining to receiving the signal.

The directions will state to locate or mount it near a window for better reception.

But yes, I agree, it may or may not work in your situation.

A definite maybe, or maybe not. One thing to consider is that even if the phones work ok, if the GPS signal is blocked, 911 may not be able to locate you in an emergency.

No, this is a home phone that works on the Verizon cellular network... a cell phone in a portable base unit to which you can attach wired or wireless home phones.

I have SEVEN wireless home phones, with that system's base unit (answering machine + wireless phone), attached to one of the two tel. jacks on the back of my ST Home Phone base.

Will the device still work after having left it dormant for 6 months?

This is in regards to installing the device at a vacation home. Will I have to keep on buying the card for six months, even though I'm not using the phone.

I think my first answer was wrong... I got wrapped up in your word "dormant" assuming you didn't want to pay for service while in one of your locations.

Actually, I believe that, if you keep your same tel. number, either one they assign or your ported number from another service, you can just move the box back and forth, as long as both places are within network reach (cell towers).

In that case, you could use their auto-refill plan (nice!) and keep using your ST Home Phone wherever you're within their Nationwide network.

I'd check with their CS on that too! -:)

No. It only works if it has been "refilled" for another month, either with a new purchased card, or by auto-refill, or by applying "Reserve" time added with multiple cards, which you can manage online or with CS.

Here's what they say about letting your phone go "inactive":

"Why would my phone number be cancelled if I do not refill my account on time?

Straight Talk Wireless pays all charges to the carriers every month when we issue you a wireless phone number for your use. If you stop buying Service Plans or adding Service Cards or refilling your account, Straight Talk Wireless will stop paying the charges on that line for your use and will reassign that telephone number to a new Straight Talk Wireless customer. All it takes to get your phone Activated again is to buy and add a new Service Plan."

So, I believe you can go to your vacation home and activate there with a number they assign (easier than porting in each place), refill for whatever months you'll be there, then bring the box back home and re-activate it at home. However, I don't think they can "reserve" a specific tel. number for a box that moves back and forth?

However, I'd check with their CS to be sure.

Why won't this Straight Talk landline phone work in my area?

My daughter has a Straight Talk prepaid cellphone, and it works just fine. When I typed in our zipcode at the top of the Wal-mart specs page, it said "Warning: this phone will not work in your zipcode".

This device uses Verizon's network, so you can check Verizon's coverage in your area, if you have Verizon service, it should work fine. Some Straight Talk cell phones use Verizon, and some others use other carriers, like AT&T I believe.

Walmart's been having "difficulties" with that Zip Code checker thing so it's most likely just that same problem... areas that definitely DO have service, like Los Angeles 90001, show as not working.

If you have ANY cell phone service there, this ST Home Phone WILL work! It's exactly like using your daughter's ST cell phone.

No. You can use wireless telephones and answering machines that would normally plug into a tel. jack. I have an 8-tel. wireless Uniden set with phones in every room, even the bathroom.

If your house does have internal wiring intact, you also can plug the ST home phone box into one of the existing jacks, which makes all other jacks "hot" (connected to the ST box).
