Straight Talk Customer Service
My phone has not worked since 8/12/2017. I've been on the phone with customer service numerous times. I received a new SIM card and it did not fix the problem. I was told I would be sent a new phone 16 days ago. I called yesterday and gave the confirmation number I received and they could not find the "ticket." I demanded a refund of my payments for August, September and October automatic payments and they refused. They said no new phone will be sent until I return the old one. No Way with the horrible customer service I've experienced with them. DO NOT SWITCH TO STRAIGHT TALK. It was great until I had a problem. Their customer service is absolutely the worst. I cannot keep records for them. Ticket numbers mean nothing to them. I trusted them to fix the problem and they cannot and will not make it right. Everything is great until you have a problem. If your phone breaks through it out the window. At least you will save yourself the aggravation and frustration of dealing with their customer service.
Best Straight Talk Phone I've Owned!
I've had my phone (Galaxy S7, Verizon Towers) for about a year now & this is the most expensive phone I've ever bought for Straight Talk & honestly....I do not regret it. My advice to anyone buying this phone purchase the tempered glass screen cover & the commuter otterbox. I'm on my 3rd tempered glass screen & not a scratch on the phone screen. I've dropped it many times, even shoved it into a cart return forgetting it was in the child seat. It hasnt gave me any problems.... for Straight Talk Users...thats a breath of fresh air after dealing with junk phones over the years. I see some people complaining because there wasn't certain apps already in the phone....go to the Google store & download them ya waawaa babies. Who cares if the newer models already have them installed, No excuse to give the best phone a horrible rating because your lazy.
So Far So Good- Except for the batter life
I bought this phone a week ago. So far I love it. The last 3 phones I've purchased has been Samsung Galaxys. I had the Galaxy4 and the charging port of course broke so I needed a new phone and decided to spend the money to get the new Galaxy7. I have to say so far its about the same as the 4, obviously there are some new features, but I have realized that all the Galaxys seem to have about the same layout. The camera seems to be better than the 4 & the 3. The only problem I have so far is the battery. It says the life of it is suppose to last up to 28 hours, well mine hasn't come close yet. The first couple days I thought it was just b/c I was getting everything switched over to this phone and was downloading everything again, but after a week the battery is still the same. It will last most of the day, but then I have to get it on the charger. I try and only leave it on the charger until the battery is charged so that it isn't on there all night. I guess if your going to be on the phone a lot to make sure you carry a charger with you.
I have had this phone since August and I absolutely love it. Let me say this to everybody who has never purchased a straight talk phone the s7 I have runs off Verizon towers. Straight talk doesn't have their own towers so their phones run off of Verizon or AT&T towers. So when you go to Walmart what you want to look for is the map on the box the phones in or the card you take to the employee if it's a red map it's Verizon blue map is At&t. This phone is so great it takes awesome pics and plenty of apps to download I get a full day of battery life from when I wake up till I go to bed and when I go to bed I still have between 25 and 30% sometimes 35% I couldn't be happier with this phone and service. Straight talk is definitely the cheapest and they give you way more for your buck. $45 card is unlimited calling unlimited texting and 5gb high speed data. $55 card is unlimited calling unlimited texting and 10gb of highspeed data. Keep in mind that yes straight talk is unlimited everything but it gives you 5gb or 10gb of highspeed data depending on the plan you choose. Once you run out of your high speed data it will slow down to 2g speeds so keep that in mind if you use the internet on your phone a lot you will want to go with the $55 card
Good phone, forced apps
Samsung has introduced two apps to this phone that were not on it when I purchased it, Samsung Pay and Gear VR. Both of these apps cannot be uninstalled nor disabled. They can be temporarily turned off but they turn themselves right back on after a few seconds. I have contacted Straight Talk and Samsung, but nothing can, much less will, be done. These apps use battery and the Samsung Pay uses battery and data. Why they would not give you the option to at a minimum permanently turn them off doesn't make any sense. I really like the phone, very functional, but can't get past the forced apps. There are times when the phone will go up to 3 days without a charge, and others just 1. Also for whatever reason, this phone will not work in Alaska even though the carrier service is there. Next phone I purchase will be an unlocked one that is NOT a Samsung and do the BYOP to straight talk.
