Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone

Question

I have lots of screeching on my end. Do I need to use another phone?

Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be my phone. The person I'm speaking to says they can hear fine and the line is clear, but I have so much screeching I have a hard time hearing them

In my 1st Answer, I mentioned a "wired jack" to test in another room. Obviously, no wired jack is needed... I was thinking of a wired telephone (or wireless) to plug into the ST Home Phone box... in any room or location.

You don't even need power if you've got the battery in the box.

I'm really not sure, but sometimes I hear an echo of my voice on mine, which I also sometimes heard with the straight talk cell phone I had.

I can't tell if that is coming from the service or the phones, but it could very well be the service since they are two totally different phones.

Also I don't hear it all of the time, but I noticed it more when standing in some areas of the house versus other areas. So, it may also depend on your service area.

You could buy another phone brand to see if it's actually the phone. Whatever the results, you can either keep it or return it. Hope this helps.

You've probably got some interference in your home. Mine had some weird noises until I changed the channel on my internet router, which was right under the ST Home Phone box. (Best to manually set routers to ch. 1, 6 or 11 rather than "auto" set.) I also put one of my DSL filter in the phone line from my wireless tel. base unit and the ST box.

Could also be other devices nearby... try it in another room, like a bedroom (if you're using a wireless phone with it or you have a wired jack there).

You might have to exchange it if you can't find a source in your home.

No, you're the "perfect" candidate for this ST Home Phone. No number to port, just buy the box and service card, activate, and you're set to go.

Once activated, you can sign up for auto-pay with a debit or credit card... or for monthly refills, just keep buying cards, or use the refill option on the website.

We had previously ported our landline to our cable provider for internet phone service and then ported it to the straight talk. It is part of the set-up process on whether you want to keep your number or get a new one. Our online activation froze so we had to call straighttalk directly and they completed the porting process for us. It took about a week for the number to transfer over. DO NOT cancel your existing phone service until the number has been successfully ported over. Straight talk will tell you how to check to see if the number was successfully switched and an approximation of what date it will be done. We completed the process about 3 weeks ago.

I wanted to go to a plan where no internet service was needed at all which is why I chose the Straight Talk Wireless Home System. My old number was ported through Straight talk with no problems and within the 2 day time frame they gave me. If in doubt, I would contact straight talk directly and confirm the porting won't be a problem.
StraightTalkHomePhone.com or 1-800-299-7784 should get your answer.

All tel. numbers are transferable since we've been paying monthly for that feature... it's one of the fees.

If concerned, check with ST first.

Yes, you can pay for this directly from your bank account. When you set it up you can use the auto-refill option so the payment comes directly out of your bank account.

Yes, should be no problem. Only thing is logistics of activating.

You have to buy a ST box to get its serial number, etc. and dial a special number noted in the instructions to get the phone programmed so ST knows you have the phone.

You'd also need to know if she wants her old landline ported or not. (The phone starts with a temp. number ST assigns.)

If you buy the phone in her area and set it up there, should be simple. If you want to buy it at your locale and surprise her with it, you'd probably have to call them and have them set it up with your CC for monthly auto-pay.

Probably other ways to do it but none should be too difficult?

No high speed Internet or land line is required for the Home phone to function properly. Therefore, a set up plan is included with the purchase of the Straight Talk Wireless Home phone.

In addition, you also have the option of purchasing the first 30-days (or any amount of service*) directly from Straight Talk at the time you activate service by giving them a credit or debit card number. Doing it this way, you don't have to initially fumble with purchasing a service card separately from Walmart.

*My suggestion is to initially purchase only the first 30-days of service so you have the chance to try it out as there are no refunds on service cards. After you determine that the service is to your liking, you can then put service in "reserve" or go on "auto-refill."

answer 3
You have to buy one of the service cards: $15 for National Plan or $30 for International Plan.

You can then refill monthly with new cards, buy multiple cards and add them to Your "Reserve" for future months, or set up an Auto Pay plan with a debit or CC.

The ST Home Phone uses Verizon, for one, but I think they use, as they advertise, "The Best Networks" (plural). That may be why they also advertise "Get 99.6% coverage on America's largest, most dependable networks"... also plural.
