Yes you can use your existing home phone. Just disconnect the wire coming from your wall jack from your current home phone. The Straight Talk phone unit will have a new wire in the box to connect to the back of the Straight Talk unit that is labeled 'PHONE" the other end of the wire is plugged into the jack on your phone. After you plug in the power cord and wait for the signal lights to lite up (need two of the three for good service) you can follow the instructions to set up your service by using a separate cell phone and the manual that comes with the unit. You will need to make a refill purchase during the set up. Use a credit card for this.

jerni, Straight Talk does not support (nor recommend) that you use your existing phone jacks by "backfeeding" it though your existing wiring. However, many have done so successfully. If doing so, you have to make sure that the wired service coming into the house has been completely disconnected and disabled.

The recommended manner to use the Straight Talk Wireless home Phone and what Straight Talk DOES support is to plug your corded phones into the back of the device (and not using the existing wall jacks in your house at all).

There are two jacks/ports on the back of the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device. You can plug two corded phones into the back or use a cordless phone system where you would plug the base station into the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device and then use multiple handsets in different rooms in the house.

So, NO, you do not have to have a land line connected. The Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone works totally independent of your current land line. It is a cellular-based unit and needs to be within an adequate distance from a Verizon Wireless cell tower (this uses Verizon for service).

If you go to this page, it will explain the system further and give you a video to watch so that you can see how it works and how easy it is to set up (copy-and-paste):

http://m.straighttalkhomephone.com/view/page/p/101590/features

When you're ready purchase, you can go here to buy it at Walmart ...as this card only supplies service to it (copy-and-paste):

The first thing I would do prior to purchasing the Straight Talk wireless home phone unit is to go in to your local Walmart and see if they carry it in house. If they do carry the unit in house, there is a good possibility that the unit works somewhere within your area. If they do not carry it in house then you need to do more research to see if the unit will even work in your zip code. Please note: you must purchase a $15 card each month in order to make calls with the unit.
My experience was this: I went online walmart.com and put my zip code in to see if it would work in my area. It said it would work in my area BUT IT DID NOT. When I went in to my local Walmart store, the associate working in electronics (seasoned Walmart employee) told me that the unit DOES NOT WORK in our zip, which is why our store does not carry the unit or the $15 monthly cards.
If the wireless home unit will work in your area, then I say get it and try it because $15 for unlimited phone calls in US is outstanding. I pay 25 monthly through my cable company and I was trying to shave 10 bucks off my monthly phone bill. I wish it would have worked...

This service card, however, only provides service to the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device. If you don't already have it, you can see and purchase it here for $69.88 (copy-and-paste):

Will I get service on two phones?

You can use more than one phone, but only one line is available. Both phones will share the same telephone number.

Linlin, my apologies for not being helpful.

Simple answer is YES, it will provide service to work with two phones.

There will only be one phone number associated with the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device, however.

There are two ports on the back of the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device that you can plug either one or two of your corded phones into that you use at home.

And as previously mentioned, you can plug the base of a cordless phone system into the back of the Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone device which will allow you to use multiple cordless handsets which you can put in various rooms in your house.

Again, you first have to purchase the "device" that I gave a link to below. This card ONLY supplies service to that device and nothing else.

(Although Straight Talk Wireless Home Phone does not support "backfeeding" through the wiring and jacks that you currently have in your house, many have done so successfully by making sure that the wired phone service coming into your house is completely disconnected and disabled. Using this method, you can conceivably use the existing jacks you currently have in your house which will then allow the use more than two phones.)

If you'd like to ask a more specific question, post it and I'll do my best to try and answer it.

The Straight Talk home phone comes with a rechargeable battery. There is a battery condition light on the unit that will flash during the initial charge. When fully charged the light will remain constant. From time to time you may notice a short cycle when the battery condition light is flashing. This is normal as the unit is checking to make sure the back up is working properly.

As previously stated numerous times in the "Customer Q&A History, the zip code checker will not work for any zip code on the Service Cards
(Walmart site glitch). Trust only the zip code checker on the walmart.com site page for the ST Home Phone system, itself.
