Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone

Question

How to activate this phone!!

HOW DO YOU GET THIS WALMART HOME PHONE ACTIVATED. I done everything as directed to activate even the 22890 number to dail and I keep getting connected to a MCI person whom keep stating they are not affiliated with walmart home phone . So how do I get activated or should I pack all product for this phone and return it to walmart for a full refund. I feel I wasted my time with this no working home phone, and no one who can assist me in activating. Iam sure the 15.00 service card it brought also when i purchase this phone will be a lost since I've already scatched the back of the card and call the straighttalk to activated. What a waste of time!!!

Walmart told us they have a 7-day return policy so, if you haven't returned it by now, it may be too late. I suggest you call StraightTalk's 800 number and see if they can walk you through the activation process. The number is in the booklet that came with the device.

Hi Jerl....you have to dial the * before the 22890 number...also I was able to type in my zip code from the Walmart.com website when reading about this product to find out if it would work in my area...the walmart associate told me that verizon towers are used. I have had no trouble at all with mine...hope you're able to get yours working....

No, you need to have a telephone to plug into the system. It can be cord or cordless. Straight talk will assign you a telephone number from the area you reside.

What is the difference between this and Magic Jack Plus?

Does anyone know if there is any difference between using this for home service in comparison to a Magic Jack Plus?

Hello Dee,
The Magic Jack devices are using a broadband network interface.
The Straight Talk devices are using a good old cell phone voice interface.

answer 2
Magic Jack works off the internet, so if your power goes out, you have no service. The battery backup with this system continues to operate during power outages. It operates over Verizon Cellphone Towers instead of a satellite.

I did not know there was a monthly fee of $9.99. I know about the $15 prepaid service card used to keep services on for the home phone system and it is available at WalMart.

Monthly fee can be paid automatically through a credit/debit card, or by purchased a refill card from Wal-Mart

How do you get billed for the service

answer 1
You will not get a bill for service. This is a prepaid month to month service (every 30 days). You can purchase a service card monthly at WalMart or you can set up an account online at straight talk for it to be taken out of your account or charged to your credit card monthly so there will be no interruption in service.

answer 2
You are not billed, you have to replenish your account every 30 days like a prepaid cell phone. However, they do have a reserve account program which allows you to purchase your minutes ahead of time and it will automatically replenish when due. They also have the auto fill method where the monthly fee is automatically charged to your credit card.

Don't believ so. When I purchased mine a week ago; the only cheaper way is....Purchase on line Walmart & pick up @ store or send direct to you. The store won't match itself w/online, but you save $20. Online price: $79.98 @ Walmart
