They have reconditioned models of the Samsung R451C, LG290C, and LG220C that are free with the purchase of an airtime card. The "all you need" card is $30, and the unlimited card is $45. Great gifts, use airtime card on any straight talk phone

Do these free phone with plan deal include an actual airtime card? Is there a limit of phones per order, per customer, o... (more)

foche911 (Dec. 17, 2011 @ 11:39a) |

yes

Muley (Dec. 17, 2011 @ 12:31p) |

If the model number ends with a C, it is Verizon. If it ends with a G, it is ATT in most of the country, with a small chance of T-Mobile......

Hi, do you know if I can transfer my present straight talk number to this phone and use the $30 card? Thanks!

yes you can

I've been wanting to try out this service. This is a good chance to do it. Thanks.

in for 10.......

a free FBI screening, and free addition to the terrorist watch list included with purchase of 10 or more

enjoy

BTW

this promotion has been going on since thanksgiving

also, FREE fedex overnight shipping until 12/17/10

Don't miss this. I got it for my son last year, Samsung 451C, and they use the Verizon network. The service is flawless and the best bang for the buck available. I am buying another phone as a backup in case he drops his and it breaks. The $45 plan is $50 a month including NY sales tax complete.

great needed a temp phone for 3 months, hopefully by the end of the first month some additional plan discounts will come to make the deal sweeter

I recently bought a new straight talk phone. I wanted mobile internet and this was just right for me. I have to say I love it. My service is great. Just as good as the ones that have a contract and pay $90 per month.

And use Rashid ibn wallid c/o the 72 virgin's mosque as the shipping address

straght talk has the Samsung R355C refurb for free with purchase of a 30 day plan (30 or 45 bucks)

also free ground shipping, they no longer have free overnight shipping


www.straighttalk.com

For those who are using straight talk, if I buy a new straight talk phone while i'm midway through a 30 day unlimited card on an existing number, can I port my number over and use the remainder of those 30 days on my new phone, or do I need to time it so that I am porting my number over at the end of the 30 days and then activate the new phone with a new phone card?

Edit: Upon further research and purchase of a new phone, the ansewr is you can port your number and use the remainder of your time, by clicking on support and upgrade phone on the straight talk page once you've logged into your account.

Sweet deal. Straight talk is definitely on top of the prepaid game these days. I still can't believe how reasonable their deals are at the rates that they offer.

I ordered a T401G for me and my gal. Mine had a broke down volume button. I have to send it in for replacement.

1. They mail be a prepaid envelope.
2. I mail it in.
3. The send me a new phone.
=I am without my phone for 8-10 days?

So I ordered another one (have to buy the minute card anyway on March 26th).

HOW do I use my SIM from the broke phone in the new phone with my current time remaining?

Both phones are T401G Straight Talk phones with AT&T TF64SIMC4 SIM cards.

I got this done in 15 minutes. You cannot use your old SIM card. Call customer service and give them your phone number to transfer, the new phone serial number and the new SIM card number.

They say it can take two days, but it took 5 minutes after I got off the phone. Be sure to call from a different phone because the one you are shutting off may go off while you are on the phone with customer service.

Is tethering allowed ?

I can't seem to order the R355C from Straight Talk's website. I've tried several times & get an error message saying that there's a problem with my credit card. I know there isn't a problem with the credit card (used it other places), so I'm wondering if others have had this problem too?

Maybe said:   Is tethering allowed ?

By policy, no. Is it possible, yes, but at possible service cancellation for breach of TOS, by using an unlocked SIM (eg: Nokia E71, Nokia 6790) and tethering capable GSM phone.

Not sure if the following applies to your situation: (reminder: TF/N10/ST are all the same company)

jimates said:   FREEBBEEZZ said:   I have beening buying the phone bundles with the time cards for years as a way to add airtime to my current phone. It may be coming to an end. Has anyone out there who has more then a few unactivated phones laying around ordered a bundle lately?? I tried a couple times over the last couple days, I get an error that my credit card proccessing was a problem. Tried numerious cards, the cfedit cards are not the problem. Anyone else having problems???That is the error you get when they have black listed you. The magic number seemed to be 50 phones at one time, but that has changed over the last couple of years. Some report being cut off after just a few phones. Activated or unactivated phones makes no difference.

You will no longer be able to use your name, address, credit card, email etc. Also note that even though you get the credit card error and the order is declined, a pre authorization for the full amount of the order is placed on your credit/debit card every time you attempt to order. Those charges will drop off from your account in 5 days.

You will have to get someone else to order for you, to a different address, if you want to continue getting the bundles. Calling CS will do no good because they will just enter the same info you do and get the same error, and tell you it must be a problem with the card.

Onedew, I've been trying to get a ST Motorola W385 for months - where are you seeing this offer? Has this offer expired? I just don't see it anywhere on the ST website.

Yortster said:   Onedew, I've been trying to get a ST Motorola W385 for months - where are you seeing this offer? Has this offer expired? I just don't see it anywhere on the ST website.

W385 was available only for a few days (IIRC) in CO market (please read the TF thread for clairification) starting (as noticed by me) circa early AM 6/2. I guess it was too late for you to take advantage of the deal. For future reference, perhaps you might want to subscribe to this thread and set up several topic alert key words (e.g.: W385)?
