It's like a cellphone. If you get cellphone service in your home, you can probably use this, as Verizon's coverage is pretty extensive in most areas. If you have a smartphone, or can borrow one, you might want to see if its GPS (Navigator, etc) works inside as well. This system's 911 system uses GPS to get help to you when necessary, so you want to be sure you put the unit near a window or less shielded part of your home so you can be located in an emergency.

But like anything else you get from WalMart, buy it, try it, AND KEEP THE RECEIPT!

You can move it and it will work, just like a cell phone, but it will retain the same assigned phone number as it had, when originally activated.

I think the phone number belongs with this box, so if you move it, it keeps the number. Make sure you have Verizon at the Florida location, and if you want 2 numbers, just get 2 boxes/accounts.

Be careful of any burglar alarms, etc., in Florida.

Not sure how alarm systems work with landlines... how they connect. This is a stand alone unit that works off of verizon cell towers. You connect your phone jack into the back of it.

It will work. (See in depth answers elsewhere in the Customer Q&A exchange, that address the glitch in the walmart.com zip checker for the $15 card).

My phone said the same thing with 59301 and card also--It's works fine and this area on their coverage map shows the same thing. I did the same thing and just took a chance on it working. My guess worked for me!!

Will this product work if your regular phone service has been terminated?

answer 1
Yes, You get a new phone number assigned by Straight talk, when you activate the ST home phone unit. (Just like a new cell phone start-up).
answered 1 year, 8 months ago

Redwood424
answer 2
If you are talking about using the old phone number, the old line must be active to port the number over. If it was recent, you could try to get the phone company to reactivate the line until you could port the number away.

Otherwise, this service has nothing to do with your old service.
So, you would disconnect your phone wiring from the phone company, then hook this box to them, but you have to buy service for this box. It is a cell phone in a box that connects your phones to it.

Question

Will porting my number to the Straight Talk interfere with my DSL with AT&T?

I have both landline and DSL on one line. If Straight Talk cancels my old number with AT&T, will that shut off my internet? I would like to hear from someone who has done this please.

Thank You

Yes. If your phone line carries both phone and DSL, Straight Talk will end up canceling both of your services in that existing line when your number is ported to the new system. You will then have no internet.

This is a cellular phone base that you hook up your wireless home phone or wired home phone to. So no, it will not work for a fax machine. You can't hook up your cell phone to a fax machine either.
It is what it is. A cell phone that you use as a home phone.
