That is a question for the cell phone service provider, it varies with each, but most it should be within 24 hours.

I have a Straight talk bring your on phone sim card W/ATT phone my question is can I put the Straight Talk Sim card in ATT phone & use the $ I have on my ATT account to activate the Straight Talk sim


Yes you can,however you will need to contact AT&T first to get the Network Unlock Code Key. Once the phone is unlocked,call Straight talk so they can activate their service on your AT&T phone and you may use your sim card then.

How do I activate my new straightalk phone,I attempted to activatlast night butnit isnot activatedbut my ATT phone has been cut off?


How did you try to activate it over the phone or online? Where did you buy your Straight Talk Phone, from their retail store, online, a third party reseller like HSN.com or a private party?

If you bought it new from a thirld party like HSN or QVC, you must call them FIRST if there are activation problems. They may have a special Straight Talk Tech Support number for you. You can creat an account on the Straight Talk website with your full, real, information and try to add the phone (by type) to your profile and then putting in the IMEI number.

Call Straight Talk tech support, keep calling till you get a real person. If the system says call back later, hang up and call right back. Tell them you want to activate a phone.

Porting your old number.
If you wanted to transfer your old number from AT&T but they shut off your old phone, you may not be able to transfer it now. Both the old provider phone AND the new phone must be ACTIVE and working at the same time to port a number over. They need a working phone to move it TO.

Go to the Straight Talk has a FB page and post your issue online. That seems to get fast service. Save the chat with the instructions. Ask for the rep to call you and give you a "problem or issue number" via your email address.

You must speak to a real person for this problem - if it didn't work the way you did it.

You can email their tech support also. If the regular reps don't help, ask for a supervisor.

American Movil which owns Straight Talk, Net10, Tracfone and 10 or more other companies have terrible support. They're non-native English speakers, mostly in the Phillipines and Central or South America who read from a script and often read about a different problem. Whenever I have a problem with minutes or a phone I almost have a stroke before we're done.

Try to do as much as you can can online. Understand their web site often doesn't work correctly. After years of doing business with them often the site is partially broken or undergoing updates, that's why transactions don't go through properly.

How do i re activate my WX430?


Hello!!
In order to unlock the phone you will need to contact the original service provider for further assistance because this code is assigned by the original service provider the phone was manufactured for so that it cannot be taken to another carrier for activation without their permission.

I just bought and activated a STRAIGHTALK $45 Unlimited talk, Text and Web card, my phone works but does not get internet service. How can I Fix???


look in your settings and see if your phone is on airplane mode. also if you dial *2290 it will also help you to get better service. these phones only run on two towers verizon and att. where i am at att does not work at all. I only use straight talk and i love the service but it all depends on your service tower. if this doesnt help you might have to call customer service .

Activation of my lg220c phone is giving me problems


you are f'ed. sounds like the phone will have to be reset. my was 6 months old and all of a sudden the screen read "service disabled." what sucked was it was 9:00 at night and their customer service was closed for the evening. i called the next morning. talked to some indian who gave me a series of 18 numbers to enter in the code entry mode box. after pressing ok, the phone re-booted and was fine.
