  1. my straight talk phone is programmed why can I not activate it

  2. Do any LG slider android phones use at&t or Verizon towers on straight talk?

  3. My Samsung Galaxy. Precendent says it is low on phone storage. How do I move pictures from my phone to SD Card? How do I automatically save pictures to the SD Card?

  4. I have a Samsung Galaxy Precendent.

    The notifications is telling me my phone storage is getting low.
    How do I move my pictures from my phone to the SD Card?

    How can I automatically save my pictures to the SD Card?

  5. i live in fort collins co and my service is fine, but when i visit family in beuna vista co i have no service, whats up with that?

  6. Billy it is a total pain in the butt to activate straight talk phones. You end up talking to someone from India or another country. Those people do NOT understand English! I am thinking about pulling my account from them. It's not worth the two hours per phone (my husband has one too) to activate, and to get ant problems ironed out with your phone. If I were you, I'd run as fast as I could away from this company! Sorry Straight Talk, but only speak the truth! Bring jobs back to the USA!

  7. You're absolutely correct Debbie.We spent 6 hours on the phone over 3 days and phone still not activated!!Read the numbers (to activate) a hundred times.Sending it back!What a crock.Anyone buying this phone,GOOD LUCK getting it activated.

  8. Joanne and Debbie,

    I do all mine from the website. I hate having to call. But i aint had no real probs with tge.service or anything else for that matter. Been pretty good to me.

  9. Great job!! You just made my work pretty easy. I found lot of info about cell phone communication from here, which is very crucial for my assignment. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Is there anyway that StraightTalk could make a $10 or $15 card for either 500 text / 500 mins or even 250 Txt / 250 mins without internet capabilities? That would be really helpful to those who are in a money tight situation. There are those who don't use anywhere close to 1000 mins/txt. You would probably get a lot more customers who need a way to keep in touch with others in an emergency or parents who allow their children the use of a cell phone for emergency purposes.

  11. Data is not unlimited. I have a Straight Talk phone. When I downloaded 1 too many apps. I was cut off.


Surpassing Verizon, TracFone notches 1.1M net adds in Q4

By Mike Dano

Feb. 9 2011 - 6:03 pm - América Móvil's TracFone MVNO service netted a whopping 1.1 million new subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2010, finishing the period with a total of 17.7 million subscribers.

TracFone's net adds put it in the same league as some of the nation's Tier 1 wireless carriers. For example, Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ [1]), the nation's largest wireless carrier, recorded 955,000 total net customer additions in the fourth quarter, ending the period with 102.2 million "total wireless connections."

Such a comparison isn't completely fair, however. TracFone doesn't operate its own wireless network--instead, as an MVNO, the company essentially piggybacks on the networks of Verizon , AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T [2]) and T-Mobile USA, reselling their services under TracFone's brands, which include Straight Talk, Net10 and others. Thus, TracFone's net customer additions are also counted by its host carriers under their "wholesale" column.

Nonetheless, TracFone's stellar growth is notable. The company has grown its U.S. subscriber base from 14.4 million in December of 2009 to 16.7 million in September 2010 to 17.7 million at the end of the fourth quarter of last year.

As for TracFone's subscriber metrics, the company's minutes of use skyrocketed 219 percent year over year, from 94 in the fourth quarter of 2009 to 300 in the fourth quarter of 2010. TracFone attributed the growth to its Straight Talk unlimited service. TracFone's average revenue per user grew from $10 to $14 during the same period while its churn remained relatively unchanged at around 4 percent.

CTIA-The Wireless Association's statement on usage and cost for mobile phone calls

WASHINGTON, DC CTIA-The Wireless Association® issued the following statement today in response to the OECD Communications Outlook report on usage and cost for mobile phone calls:

The headline from the recently released OECD Communications Outlook report reads that Finland, the Netherlands, and Sweden have the lowest prices for mobile phone calls among OECD countries, while the highest prices were found in Canada, Spain, and the United States. But since U.S. consumers enjoy the lowest per minute rates of all of the OECD countries, what today’s OECD report really shows is that some international comparisons just don’t make sense – especially when built on flawed assumptions.

The real story is buried on page 275 of the OECD report which states:

“It is important to note again that the OECD calling pattern in the basket can be significantly different than common calling profiles in a specific country. For example, the high-usage OECD basket includes 1,680 outgoing voice calls per year while users in the United States average 9,600 minutes of voice calls (combined incoming and outgoing) per year. In this case the basket provides the cost of buying exactly the calls and messages in the OECD basket rather than what may be considered a ‘typical’ bundle in the market.”
