answer 1
If you wish to narrow down and pinpoint to your specific neighborhood or even address in your ZIP code, you can use the Verizon Wireless interactive coverage map where you can put in your address and zoom in to see the coverage in your neighborhood (copy-and-paste):

http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/default.aspx?requestfrom=webagent

Choose the "Prepaid" button and the areas which are shaded in purple will be native Verizon Wireless voice coverage areas which the Straight Talk Home Phone system will use.

Go to the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone listing in the Walmart site and you will find an insert that reads: "Interested in this device? Check to see if it works in your area before you buy." Enter your zip code, click Check, and it will tell you if it works in your area.

Is StraightTalk compatable with my home security system?

asked 8 months ago
By
Bart
on Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone

Answers
answer 1
Your home security system uses a eprom that dials the alarm company when triggered. This phone is using wireless services and does not have a control to dial alarm system monitoring facilities. You should call your alarm company and ask them what is available to allow you to use wireless phone service for the alarm monitoring feature. Remember, this equipment is using wireless cellular service that transmits a signal from the base unit to a cellular tower. It is not hardwired to a landline.

This is what they say about Security Systems:

"Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone may not be compatible with certain home security systems. Please check with your system provider to confirm the compatibility requirements. "

The Straight Talk Home Phone has a battery backup. The battery is rechargeable and is kept charged during the time that it is plugged in. Therefore, at the time of a power outage, it should be fully charged (or close to it).

ST says this about power outage and the Home Phone battery:

"Fully charged, the battery provides you with continues service for up to 2 hours talk-time and up to 36 hours stand-by time. "

It has two tel. jacks in the back. You can plug one wireless base unit into one jack and/or one tel. wire from a wired wall jack if you don't want to use wireless phones.

I use an 8-handset wireless system in my home with the base plugged into the ST box.

I also confirmed that, if you plug a wire into your existing in-house wiring, that makes the entire wiring system "hot" (so to speak) so you can plug wired phones into any jack. I also plugged a wired phone into the 2nd jack on the box so I had a wired phone in the same place as the box. Just make sure the landline company doesn't mess with your tel. box after you cancel your landline service... it can still be used.

Question

Can I get wi-fi with this product?

I want to switch to straight talk, but I also need wi-fi. Does this product offer that, or do I need to buy a certain cell phone also?

The ST box doesn't do wi-fi. You connect to the box with a wired phone or wireless telephone system.

I have an 8-handset system connected to mine, but if your insides wiring is still intact, you can connect the box to one of the wall jacks and plug in wired telephones to any of the jacks, and one to the box to have wired phone service if you prefer.

boopops, the Straight Talk Home Phone will not provide WiFi. It is for voice only.

Straight Talk currently does have one product that is a portable WiFi-maker" or referred to as a personal hotspot. It sells for $79 and has a variety of "plans" or offering of data in various increments. It will provide WiFi at your home or on the go as long as you are within a Verizon Wireless coverage area.
