    no call records information available online at straighttalk.com

    I recently moved to straight talk $45 plan from pageplus and was disappointed to know that straight talk does not provide online call records. Pageplus online was good in that sense.
    any reason why straight talk does not provide this information.

    Don't know, but most phones (e71 included) keep a pretty good record under call history. Maybe you can check there if you are looking for something.

    Probably just cost and simplicity. You have unlimited mins, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    If your using the Nokia smartphone SIM in an Android, you can also download an app to backup and keep your call history. There might even be an app for the Nokia smartphones from Ovi store as well.

    Yes ST doesn't keep call logs or even number of minutes used for the unlimited plan, even CS cant help you on this. I am guessing cost and being an MVNO are the big reasons. See if there is an app to keep track of the call logs.
    Are you looking for the call logs, just to keep track of how many minutes you are using in a month? and to see if you even really need the unlimited plan.

    Straight Talk is really just a no frills kind of provider.
    Unlimited minutes so there's no need to spend any money to track the number of minutes. No money spent to install tracking software, no systems for billing, no need to take any customer service calls regarding minute overages.
    It doesn't get much more cost effective than that...

    But for all these reasons, it's pretty much why the service is affordable at $45 per month.

    Call logs are an important legal document that will help you in your time of need. It definitely helped me when my ex-wife tried to file a false custodial interference case against me. I was able to provide the call logs that proved that I had called her, her lawyer and the necessary authorities.

    I just cannot emphasize enough the importance of call logs.

    The fact that a call was made proves very little. The substsnce of the conversation is what has the most probative value.

    The call records do exist despite not being shown to you, if you have a subpoena, that information can be obtained.

    Agree. but sometimes the very fact that a call was made would count depending on the situation.

    There is no need for a subpoena. All you need to do is call Straight Talk's customer service and request the records (so long as they are your own records). They will mail them to you upon request. I've done it once already and they have no problem providing them for you.
