Reception

If I don't get good cell phone reception at my house will this work as home phone?

What you will need is to be in an area where there is good Verizon Wireless coverage. You may have weak cell phone coverage for another carrier but as long as you have Verizon coverage, the Straight Talk Home Phone should work fine. If not, then correct, this will not work. Verizon has relatively good coverage in rural areas so you may be in a Verizon area.

You can check if your exact address is in the Verizon native coverage area by going to the Verizon interactive coverage map and inserting your address. Copy-and-paste this link:

http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/

Check the "Prepaid" button after you've inserted your address and then click on the "Refresh Map" button. If your location is in the purple-shaded area, the Straight Talk Home Phone will work. You have to be in the purple-shaded area otherwise it will NOT work.

Since your bad cell reception could be due to the carrier and cell phone, there's no way to know for sure if ST would be better except to try it.

Use the box at the top of this page to check first. Enter your zip code and it will let you know in advance if it "should" work.

Luckily, Walmart has a 15-day return policy on this unit.

Yes, it has two phone jacks on the back.

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

Yes, it has two jacks in the back for 2 separate phones.

You could have the base unit of a wireless set (I have an 8-set unit) and a std corded phone in the other jack, or you could connect a tel. cord to one of your existing wired jacks in your house and use corded phones at every jack in the house.

Lots of options.

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.

answer 3
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?

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

Does this work with medical alert equipment ?

My mother has a pacemaker. She has a medical alert modem that sits on her night stand. Which will alert medical services if there is a problem with her pacemaker. It also does random checks to see that everything is working ok. It connects via the telephone jack. Will this work for her and her phones?

It is supposed to work like a telephone. However, since your device "checks to see that everything is working" I suspect that requires landlines. Check with your supplier, they should be able to answer that question.

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.

Apparently not. This is from the ST FAQs:

"Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone is not compatible with data services such as: fax machines, DVR services, credit card machines, medical alert services, or some home security systems. "
