Paula Wiseman: I know this an old video but was researching straight talk home phone and ran across yours. Thank you very helpful. Good job.
Phil Smith: Had mine for 6mos... GREAT investment... bought a referb unit from Straight Talk for $30... and kept (port) my Moms old number she had since the 70's... and at $15 ($17 with tax and ??), great deal. I even have it hooked up to the OLD rotary kitchen phone..lol
gloria marquez: I pay 18 bucksfor service with long distance
kay taylor: This was a good review. I just changed over to Straight Talk. My original provider was Windstream. It took over 4 wks. waiting to have my old land line number transferred to Straight Talk. On 7/17/15, I decided to terminate all service with Windstream and be issued a new telephone number with Straight Talk. Do not believe that transferring a land line will happen immediately, it will not or did not happen with Windstream. They did everything possible to delay transfer of service. If you live in Sugar Land, TX use Straight Talk and do not bother with Windstream, I was with them over six yrs. always paid my bill on time and they refused to transfer service in a timely manner. Plus, Straight Talk cost me only $15.00 per month and the equipment at Wal-Mart was on sale for $49.95 that was a good deal. No more service with these high government regulated providers. Thanks for your review "The Masco80" good job.
William Hudson: This explanation/review is done very well. I am currently trying to find a home phone service for a friend that (like you) lives in the "sticks" and the only internet signal he can get is a satellite supplied internet "like Hughes". But any type of satellite signal internet will not support VOIP. I am able to get internet signal where I am at and have VOIP home phone service for $8.00 a month (including tea tax and carpet tax) ( with a company called VOIPO.) But then again VOIPO only works if you can get an internet signal (besides satellite).
This Walmart thing is like a normal a VOIP service but you are "pinging" off of Verizon cell towers. For people that have to have "sun light piped in", Walmart Straight Talk is an excellent solution.
Mattie Jefferson: Very good understanding video, Do you know how to unlock the box
Nathan Daniels: What I noticed AT&T vs Verizon, is AT&T in many areas actuall seems to have the best coverage area with 4G LTE, however Verizon's 4G LTE (if you can pick up the 4G LTE signal) has a bit lower latency (which is critical to gaming and VOIP phone service). So if you have Verizon with a decent signal, their 4G LTE is a bit faster response time due to its lower latency/lag time.
rdc beauty: How do you wire the whole house??
gretscher: I like your review. It was very well done and informative. Thank you for posting.
Brother Joseph Mary: what about during inclement weather... does it still work?
5argeTech: I've had mine for 3 yrs now and Zero problems. the unit sits in the back of my house at the top of one of my kitchen windows. I then connected the jack to the rest of my house. (After disconnecting from the AT&T pole.) I have a panasonic multi handset phone, (base + 4 handsets). So this means my whole house is wired to this device. I love it. $30 a month flat rate. I also take the device with me when I travel. ( It's cellular ). It even works in my car. I love it.
thunderlord2200: how do vu part you phone number?
Tyler Smith: comprehensive review, I'll probably get it, I rely on a cell, & need a home back up. Thanks.
Sammy Carlton: Great video. Very informative. I have been using Straight Talk for my cell services for about 5 years now. I got tired of the high bills I was getting from Verizon. I just recently got a box fro my AT&T Home Phone, which I have had, like you, for many years. 20+ years. My bill has been running over $80 a month. Just last month, I changed it to No Long Distance, and it was still, after taxes, $56 a month. so I just got my home unit, called Straight talk, and now in a couple of days, my home phone will be ported, and I like the fact that I can still use my cordless phones, and I will experiment with my answering machine, and voice mail, and see which I prefer. Thank You for the very coo and informative review on the Straight talk Home Phone
Dave Bernal: Super helpful. Great review. Thanks for going into the details and giving perspective on owning one. Im throwing my cell away getting one of these guys asap
alphacharlie65ms: Can you switch a business phone number over to this.
Jory Squibb: thank you....very helpful...
Carrie Heffernan: your voice is sexy, reminds me of a young, Southern, Jack Nicholson.
Garry Quarles: I thought your review was good. Thanks
MrEraider60: This could come in handy for whenever I move to an area that as good Verizon reception (I'm not being sarcastic, I promise). I currently live in a rural area with almost no cellular reception, and have to depend on AT&T's U-Verse for having a phone at home. Thanks for this!
