Straight Talk minutes are available for purchase direct from the Straight Talk website or any participating Wal-Mart retailer. Straight Talk minutes need to be refilled on a monthly basis unless an auto-refill plan is purchased.
Straight Talk phones, products and other services associated with the phone are available through the Straight Talk website and participating Wal-Mart retailers. To keep the phone active, a service plan must be purchased. There are several service plans available, including an auto-refill plan, a 30-day plan or several unlimited plans for 3 month, 6 months, or 1 year. International plans are available for users who require the service for an additional fee.
Refilling an All You Need plan offers 1,500 nationwide minutes, unlimited nationwide messages and 100 MB of data for phones capable of sending and receiving data. Refilling with an unlimited plan offers unlimited text, talk, messaging and data for the time period chosen.
A Straight Talk phone does not roam, so calling anywhere within the United States is within the network and included in the selected plan. It is a pay-as-you-go prepaid wireless phone plan that provides nationwide service with no credit checks, no contracts and no activation fees. There is no age limit for purchasing a Straight Talk phone or Straight Talk minutes.
