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."

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.

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

No. I juist pluged it into the wall socket. And followed the directions. You can have national or international calls. $16.76 for national and I think $23.00 for the other one. You call every month on the same day and you can use a charge card or a staight talk minutes card. And you can use more than one phone.

Just about as many as you want.

I have an 8-handset wireless system attached to my ST box plus, for testing, I also connected a tel. cable to the 2nd jack ion the back of the box to one of my existing wired phone jacks in the wall and it allowed me to ALSO connect as many wired telephones to the existing wall jack.

The cable from box to one wired jack made ALL wired jacks "hot" for any other telephone in the other wired jacks.

mac, I'm assuming you're asking about GPS as it pertains to an emergency call?

This is from the Services Guide for this device:

"Your Home Phone device is embedded with a GPS chipset that transmits its location. Since the unit is designed for use in indoor environments, please be prepared to provide your location inside the premises to public service personnel in an emergency situation. For optimal GPS signal strength, your Home Phone device should be located near a window or other opening at all times."

.
To view the Services Guide that is enclosed within the packaging for this device, you can see it here in a PDF (copy-and-paste):

The person you are calling is likely to see the city you are calling from on their caller ID, but it does not have what it commonly referred to as GPS.
