Someone gave us a Straight Talk phone, and we sold it to someone who's never had a cell phone before. We've had to help him with the whole process. He just called saying he's bored. How can someone be bored when they got internet for the first time today!!! Oh, because he can't figure out how to use it, so were trying to help him get set up good with Straight Talk.
I've never used Straight Talk, but I saw an ad here on Howard Forums for the free phones with free shipping till December 17.
My questions are:
Is the offer good for current customers or just new activations?
What are the methods of payment? He doesn't have a credit card. Can he purchase a phone card at Walmart and have the free phone added on? Or do we need to order the phone for him?
Thanks! I wanted to make sure about it before taking his money.
Now if I could just get someone to answer my questions about my phone lol.
I really don't trust cellphone companies to pay with cc. I only use phone cards since switching to prepaid, but you can't be scared of every little thing, and I don't want to be afraid to help people out. Hope he can buy it without cc though.
Straight talk won't answer the phone. Maybe I should call Walmart jk.
We went ahead and ordered it for him. After ordering it, I saw where you can enter your email and the order number to get shipping info. Now i can't find that page, and I have searched. He hasn't set up an online account and he doesn't have an email. Could someone post a link to where I can enter my email and the order number?
Thank you. You might have saved the day. What day that is I don't know, because I can't find the FedEx tracking number. Thanks to your link I know I have to be home to sign for it, because they changed the shipping address to the same as the billing address. I know I did it right because when I tracked it after ordering, it showed his address for shipping. I should call walmart and complain!

I ordered the 451c refurb w the 45. Dollar card to re up my e71 and to have an extra fone on hand in case a friend needs one. I have a friend on a family plan for us cellular and when it comes for her share of the bill she has to pay upwards of 150 a month she rarely uses data mostly text. Someone is ripping her off. That is prob where that fone will go.
trying to come up with better signature.......
Is this an actual card or is it free minutes with the activation of the phone?
I know someone who bought a phone with the Unlimited card for a total of $45, but I assumed this was a months service with activation.
Any ideas? I need a card but I don't want to activate it with one of these phones.
You cannot apply a ST card`s airtime/days to any other brand of phones except ST.
What I'm trying to ask is this free phone offer a physical card. I have two ST phones that were $45. They also came with a free month (each). I have yet to open the package to see if there is a physical card in them or if it's an activation deal. On STs website there is an offer for free phones with a purchase of a 30 or 45 dollar card, and I'm wondering if it's an actual card or if it's an activation deal.
I am wanting to know because i need an unlimited card for an E71 but I want to make sure that if I order thr card that offers a free phone that it's actually a card and not a months service that will be added to one of those phones .. Make sense?
