If you are in a Verizon dead zone, you will not be able to get services for this system because it uses Verizon towers. (You can go to straight talk online to see if it is available in your area just to be sure.) I do not know if AT&T have the same system for home phones but you can check the website.

It is not a Home Phone. It is a Home Phone device that you pay a $15.00 per month service fee for Local & Long Distance calling.
You plug a regular home phone into the device.

Actually, this is the wireless device that you hook up your home phone to. It may be a bit expensive, but for what you pay in phone bills, you will get your $$ back in no time.

No. There is no "programing" of the device, like a place to store blocked numbers as in some landline systems. Any programming is done remotely from ST.

Question

I'm a snowbird if I buy a land line can I just use it for 210 days then stop service for another 150 days and restart for another 240 days.

Will there be additional charges. In other words can I use 2 or three $15 phone cards with 30 plus days of no service without additional charges or do I have to sign up for a monthly plan and pay every month.

Yes, you can buy as many $15 cards as you expect to use and jeep the ST phone active for as long sa you want, then use again later with new $15 cards.

You may have to get new tel. numbers each time... I don't know if you port your current tel number to this phone, then let it "lapse" for a period of time if you can retain that tel, number each time).

answer 2
Yes, if you use monthly plan cards.
Probably also with credit card on auto debit, BUT the customer service is very hit or miss and a real hassle to deal with them.
I would avoid the hassle and just use the monthly prepaid plans and not pay for the months were you will be gone.

You can TAKE THE PHONE WITH YOU AND USE IT WHERE YOU'RE GOING! How about that! Be sure there is service where you are going BEFORE trying this!

You can do that with not extra charges, however, the unfortunate part of the scenario you describe is that you will lose your phone number and will have to accept a new phone number each time you re-activate service.

According to Straight Talk, you will have to keep your service active in order to keep the same number. If you don't mind having a different number each year, then there is no problem doing what you describe.

There is another possibility you may want to check into and that is to port your number back and forth each season as Straight Talk really doesn't care what area code they are assigning to your service. However, your wired home phone service (or whatever service you use at your primary residence) will in all likelihood charge a lot of fees for starting and ending service, etc., etc. to where it may not make sense to do this.

does it have caller id and call waiting

answer 1
ST plans have local and long distance calling, voicemail, caller ID, 3-way calling, call waiting, call forwarding, E911 and 411 at no extra cost.

The caller ID is only the number, no name, but we get names from our phonebook entries. WE use those names plus a distinctive ring for to identify, without looking, that the caller is someone we want to answer the phone for.

Not sure if ST will ever upgrade the caller ID to include all names, but if so, it can be done with an upload to each ST box.

No. You get through your telephones and answering systems only. This only provides the wireless system to use a home telephone.

I doubt it, it lets you make and receive telephone calls, but there is no "carrier" to go through to receive a collect call. The one I had connected through Verizon's cell system. When I tried to use it after supposedly activating it, I dialed the toll free number in hte instructions and was informed (by a robotic voice) that I could make a credit card call, which I am sure would have been expensive, but I should not have gotten that message in the first place.

I think what I discovered was that you can call the toll free number anyway, make a credit card call whether a subscriber or not. But I don't think there is any way to receive a collect call on this thing.

I could not get their system to do anything except charge my crdit card for the access fee (fortunately I only ordered the $15 card), which is non-refundable even though I could never use the system.

Good Luck

I don't think so - it is a telephone receiver for home use that uses cellular signals near your home. It sends and receives on the cell system, then you connect a telephone base unit to this device and use your phone like any regular phone, IF you can get it set up and IF you have excellent cell coverage near the place of use.

I could not get their system to do anything except charge my crdit card for the access fee (fortunately I only ordered the $15 card), which is non-refundable even though I could never use the system.

No. There is no operator involved to facilitate a collect call or any "automatic" system for such. Also, no billing system to keep track of fees, fees-on-fees, feefees-on-feefees, and other insidious charges like on the old, ancient wired tel. systems. -:)
