    Is Verizon leaving ST

    There is an on going question on Straight Talks face book page, is Verizon leaving ST? I know they have the Phones that work on AT&T nework now but are the Verizon phones going to continue to work on ST? Has Verizon pulled out of Straight Talk? Thanks.

    The LG 511C (Verizon service) is due out next month. What does that tell you?

    I didn't know that is why I was asking. I don't know a lot about these things and thought I could find out here. When I first started with ST of course they were all phones ending in c and I was told they were Verizon network, I went on not long ago to look at the phones for my area they had no phones ending in c only g which I was told ran on AT&T I checked on the T528G, I asked on ST facebook page also to make sure it would work in my area they said yes I bought it and no signal at all so I went back to a c phone, now I have great covrage and was just wondering since there were no c ending phones for my area, was they going to quit having them. Thanks hope you can understand my jibberish

    That is the GSM4 market area. You SHOULD have had AT&T service when you were trying out the T528. It would seem you need Verizon service where you use your phone.

    Verizon cost most for ST to provide, AT&T falls in the middle and T-Mobile is the cheapest. Trac companies make the most expensive service hard to come by and almost force the cheapest onto you.

    Oh I see, I have a Kindle and it uses AT&T and I have to get in one spot in my house to get one bar to load a book. I am happy as long as I know my Verizon using R355C will keep working. I don't need much I get by great on the $30 plan. Thanks

    Trac's simply doing what is economically most expedient like every other company. Our local regional has roaming on Cricket, Metro , Sprint and Verizon. They roam first on the cheapest guys: Cricket/Metro, then Sprint and finally Verizon in that order. Same priority levels with ST. They want to give you the cheapest one they can if they can get away with and and give you the pricier options only when the cheaper options are less available.

    Yes I bought the new ST 528 and I could not get service. They tried to give me codes to make it better and said I sould get it, but nothing helped then the phone stopped letting me even open message,contact or email folders they wouldn't give me my money back (had the phone 2 days, bought off the ST site) but are going to give me a replacement phone, the best I can hope for is to sell on ebay to try to get a little of the money back.

    You paid with a Credit card, contest a charge for something that doesn`t work. You should be able to get the charge removed. Or call the Better Business Bureau.

    Why wouldn't they give you a refund? They should--you are supposed to have 30 days to return.

    We don't know for sure if the 511c is going to come out. If it was true about verizon pulling out of course they would not release the phone. I am wondering if att is restricting their tower use to the whole tracphone company. There are a lot of complaints on the facebook pages about dropped calls and I have had dropped calls as well. It wouldn't surprise me that maybe verizon and att are trying to get rid of their mvnos so they can force you to use their main prepaid plans all having to do with their thirst for a monopoly.

    with the E-71, I have had no dropped calls with ST (AT&T). With my previous phone 620G I had some dropped calls, particularly when talking to my verizon friends

    Interestingly, the only time I seem to have dropped calls is when I'm talking to someone on the AT&T network.
