jacobcecelia: Straight talk used to be great...but now...it's horrible. The customer
service is ridiculous, almost criminal. My bank account was debited 10
days earlier than it was supposed to be by their mistake. I even received
a confirmation text from Straight talk confirming when my monthly fee would
be debited, and it was still taken out 10 days earlier than it was supposed
to. I still have the message and offered to send them a screen shot, and
they told me it wasn't their problem, and that they could not refund my
money. They said there must be an error in the system that caused it to
debit earlier, but that it wasn't "their" fault the system had made an
error. The same "system" sent me an auto-generated reminder text with the
correct date of withdraw, but it still came out of my account 10 days
sooner. I spoke with every possible person I could, and was still told that
it wasn't their problem and they didn't have the ability to refund, only
debit. I have had three phones completely malfunction after spending over
an hour on the phone "trouble shooting." I was given the same phone in
return, (Samsung Galaxy 2) the first two times, but the third time they
said I couldn't get that phone and was given a ZTE Merit, which is in no
way comparable to what I had originally. In order to receive a new phone,
I had to send my broken one back first. So, I was without a phone each
time for at least 2 weeks, and my account was never credited for those days
I had already paid for and didn't have a phone. Now the "unlimited' data
is not unlimited. You need to change your settings every time you want to
send or receive pictures messages, wait for it to connect to 3G then wait
for the messages to download. I didn't ever have to do that before with my
Galaxy. I questioned straight talk and they told me it wasn't a phone
issue, that its because I don't have unlimited data, and that's the only
way for them to monitor my data is by turning off my WiFi. Well...why do
you call it unlimited data then?? I've been enrolled in the same
"unlimited" plan for over a year and now all of a sudden, it's not
unlimited????Yes, the monthly payment is nice, but Im starting to think
it's not worth it anymore. Especially when you have to pay for the phone
up front, and you can't guarantee you'll have it long enough before you
have to buy a new one. I am currently shopping around to other no
contract phone carriers. Don't waste your money!!!
Galen Mccallum: Using zte, my usage has been throttled 2 weeks into my month plan and I
have not streamed more than a gig of data, im at a crawl and cannot watch
videos because they take a few minutes to load the first percent of a 5
minute clip. Was hoping for a better description, why make a video on how
to fix this problem with a vague desc???
drewie8897: Straight talk now has a 2.5gb high speed data limit.
jeff pratt: hey, i tried to update the data settings on my phone, but when i go to the
icon on my phone to input new apn, the screen is just blank. please help
girtha1: Can you send, receive Picts after remove home? Doing mms fixes and not
working to let me send receive Picts on iPhone 4s straight talk AT&T
network. Any ideas? I get internet
Dsmtuner562: Use iPhone Configuration Utility 3.5. You can enter your APN setting
manually here's the download support.apple.com/kb/DL1466 and a youtube
video link how to do so. youtube.com/watch?v=hOlAmneoLHw Then you would
have to call Straight Talk to reset and update you data service.
h sause: Straight talk really sux, just try looking at one video on youtube and they
throttle you back to dial up speeds. I'm switching over to tmobile's $30
mo. unlimited data where they don't have all these restrictions and say you
violated certain terms and conditions. If we all banded together we could
put straight talk out of business!
JRESHOW .: ive been using straigt talk for over six months. I live in davenport iowa.
I dont get the best speeds here, (no where close to 4G) , but I went up to
chicago and was getting right about 4mbps. I've never been cut off of data
for using too much. ( i have been cut off on h20 for sending out mass text
Charles Doren: I purchased 2 unlocked AT&T iPhone4s and purchased 2 sim cards through
Straight Talk. After installing the sim cards, I used my wifi to access
unlockit.co.nz and downloaded the straight talk apn settings. One phone
worked and the other didn't. For the other phone, I have tried just about
everything, downloading the straight talk and AT&T MNVO apn settings
numerous times, ensureing celluar data is turned on, etc. Any internet
attempts result in "could not activate celluar data network." HELP
gentlyweepforgeorge: straight talk just blows
Paolo3346: Hi, I'm not spamming, would any of you be willing to check out my video I
just posted? I think I discovered a new native way to get Cellular Data &
MMS without jailbreaking or unlocking. It doesn't hurt to check it out! I'm
looking for people to test it. It's a file that updates the CarrierBundle
and I inputted the StraightTalk settings instead of AT&T settings so it
should work. :)
txpuryear: my data and mms stopped working a few days ago also. had to reset both out
of the blue but glad it was not a data cap.
TheVictor6951: cont. Now basically no data and my txt is down to a crawl. Customer service
was terrible. Resolution center was worse,,they basically told me nothing
they could do, just live with it. Was on pay phone over an hour. I had the
$30.00 plan ,it was ok except for cust, serv. once again. I have been with
straight talk for yrs. now,,but after buying the $179.00 pl.tax LG Opimus
phone and going with the, so called Unlimited Plan, I've been totally
disappointed. This will be last buy of the $45.00 plan.

SaraST8: Hi Charles, this is Sara from Straight Talk Wireless. We do apologize for
the trouble you are experiencing with your phone. In order for your MMS and
browser to work, you need to jailbreak your phone for you to update the APN
(Access Point Name) settings of your phone correctly. Moreover, please send
us your account information which includes your name, phone number,
alternate contact number and the serial number of your phone at
TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com. Thank you.
BlackRebel4Life: Any advice for my LG optimus dynamic? My internet has not worked.
JRESHOW .: yea man, i'm not sure. It comes down to does the phone make the service
good, or does the service make the phone good.
HEng: I am on an factory unlock 4S, I have he same issue with the data connection
before, no connection or very slow (even worst than Edge) had the Straight
Talk APN installed from unlockit.Co.Nz Removed it and reinstalled it couple
times, Still the same, Called Straight Talk and they told me to jailbreak
my phone which I really don't want to; So I tried a different method by

try the way you suggest on other video.

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
